New Kodak Capture Pro software version offers compatibility with other manufacturers’ scanners
* New release is the first capture software available from a scanner hardware manufacturer that is compatible with both Kodak and third party scanners
* Increased compatibility provides new choice to help businesses more efficiently manage capture systems
October 27, 2008 — The latest version of Kodak Capture Pro Software serves as a new standard for businesses to seamlessly integrate all major brands of scanners through a single user interface and receive improved efficiency from their document capture processes.
Kodak Capture Pro Software version 1.1 is the first capture software available from a scanner hardware manufacturer that is compatible with both Kodak and third party scanners. Users of both Kodak and non-Kodak scanners can now manage virtually any scanning operation – from desktop to production – with one intuitive graphic user interface.
“Growing businesses need a comprehensive, scalable document capture solution that seamlessly integrates with their current scanner fleet and maximises the efficiency and productivity of their scanner operations,” said Robert Bijster, worldwide director, software products, document imaging, Kodak’s Graphic Communications Group. “These latest enhancements to our Capture Pro Software even further simplify the scanning process, helping businesses work smarter and faster.”
Improved functionality helps businesses lower the total cost of ownership from training through operation. Added support for Kodak 3500 and 3510 series scanners and continued support for Kodak i800 series scanners enables businesses to increase the longevity of existing hardware investments. In addition to third party scanner support, new toolbar functionality has been added to make the capture experience with Kodak scanners even more productive than the previous version.
The software is now also available in Russian, Turkish and Czech, bringing the total to 15 languages, allowing businesses to work easily and seamlessly across global markets.
A multimedia training program, available in most local languages, provides out-of-the-box set up that helps users quickly learn to use Capture Pro’s features, including Kodak’s “scan-to” function that allows for sending electronic documents to emails, PDFs and other applications. Other automated capabilities, including batch monitoring, thumbnail viewing and selective image display, streamline how captured documents are organised, identified and enhanced.
“Capture Pro Software will provide user functionality for approximately 150 third party manufacturers’ scanners with ISIS drivers and VRS. By offering compatibility with no “per click” charges, we’re providing performance capabilities at a highly competitive cost,” said Bijster. “For many businesses that require a full end-to-end solution from document capture to information management, our enhanced Capture Pro Software offers expanded integration with many third party document management systems, as well as the ability to image-enable vertical applications. In addition, we offer streamlined integration to Microsoft Sharepoint.”
Enhanced Kodak Service and Support offers businesses a central, reliable source for consultation on training, setup and application development for Capture Pro Software users. Service and Support also provides support for many of the third party manufacturer scanners that can be used with Capture Pro software. Multi-year contracts for Software Update and Support Assurance are available, ranging from 12 months to 36 months.
Kodak Capture Pro Software version 1.1 is available from the end of the year through Kodak authorised distributors and resellers in EAMER starting at a list price of €483.00.
