When most people think of business scanning, they’re thinking of point-of-need, one time scanning to a destination. They may need to scan to email a document every once in a while, when they need to have a copy of the document locally for their work or for a one time share with someone. For people in document-intensive roles and industries however, it is critical to be able to route information directly where you need it to go without manual steps in-between. Scan to email is great for ad hoc scanning, but what happens when you need to send dozens, or even hundreds of documents to specific locations daily?
That's where push scanning comes in. This Alaris IN2 Ecosystem feature, available on Kodak Alaris scanners like the Alaris S2000 Series, can send documents and their associated metadata directly into a business process. Buttons can be configured on the device so that documents will route to their intended destination in one touch.
The experience can be personalized with multi-user mode on the Alaris S2060w/S2080w network wireless scanners. These devices are built for teams, and admins can set up individual user names with PIN codes. When each person logs in, they see only their scanning destinations on one of the 20 programmable buttons.
To see how push scanning can help, take a look:
Push scanning can improve a customer’s experience with your company, by reducing the amount of time front-line staff spend with documents during customer interactions. With over 20 programmable destinations available, employees just need to select the right button to automatically send information where it needs to go. Imagine a Retail Bank being able to open a new consumer loan and collect all the needed documentation with a desktop scanner, while the customer is in the office. The documents can be pushed right into the right applications in real time. This feature, paired with innovations like Active Feed Technology and Intelligent Exception Handling delivers a much better customer experience: less time fussing with paper, faster submission to business systems, and reduced errors.
Push scanning is also a major productivity booster in production scanning operations and batch scanning environments. Alaris Info Input Express NE and Capture Pro software can use indexing technology to route individual documents to the right places based on metadata fields in a batch of different documents. Say, for example, that you work in a service bureau that processes invoices for a large enterprise and you need a way to quickly separate out documents by PO number without manual sorting. Software from Alaris, in combination with scanner hardware, can look for the PO number on the standardized invoices and route appropriately. Push scanning goes the extra mile by sending those invoices to the right locations within the customer’s application.
Push scanning is just one of the ways that the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem helps our customers take the complexity out of scanning and information capture, so that they can focus on the work that matters most.
