Kodak and iBridge Group, Inc. recently announced a new System Output Destination (SOD) solution, to seamlessly input digitized information from KODAK Capture Pro Software into the IBM FILENET P8 Platform. iBridge Group, Inc., a member of Kodak's Independent Software Vendor program, developed the free SOD to help integrate the batch scanning capabilities of Capture Pro Software with FileNet's advanced data management capabilities.

SOD solutions provide end users with an easy-to-install component for Capture Pro Software that enhances overall flexibility and scalability to meet information management needs. The expanded connectivity helps organizations use information in larger business process systems, like the IBM FILENET P8 Platform. Businesses can use the solution to improve overall process efficiency of inputting unstructured and structured data across functions like compliance, auditing and records management.

The SOD simplifies the use of advanced OCR and metadata capabilities with an intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI). The platform offers point-and-click integration directly from the desktop, and all data-mapping occurs directly within Capture Pro Software.

"iBridge's seamless connection between Capture Pro and FILENET P8 enables users to build applications and augment their existing or new IBM FILENET P8 content management environment," said Jay Van Sickle, Product Manager, iBridge Group. "The system, offered free of charge for a limited time to KODAK Capture Pro Software customers, presents a very cost-effective service. The return on investment comes with the knowledge that their data from paper documents can be captured, managed and then shared across a larger platform."

Users who need to manage mass amounts of unstructured data can benefit from IBM's FILENET P8 total business process- which includes a content engine with document library functionality, and storage, retrieval, classification and security capabilities for content. Additionally, the FILENET P8 Platform includes a process engine for actually managing and routing workflows, and a browser-based application engine for integration with common web services like JAVA and XML.

"Kodak works cooperatively with an extensive network of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) making critical data more accessible across larger business processes," said Bill Holley, Software Solutions Manager, Kodak. "Many companies have increasingly chosen to standardize with the IBM FILENET P8 System. Kodak and iBridge have developed a simple, scalable and standardized solution for this application. The solution helps businesses to expand the usability of paper-based and digital records, for greater efficiency over time."

Kodak's many SOD choices can be downloaded directly from its website (Kodak's System Output Destinations), helping to simplify the importing of output batches.
