Banks need to digitize customer documents upon receipt or creation, but scanning is only part of the workload. The labor that goes into prep and post work is often far greater than the amount that goes into scanning. Before information can be captured, employees have to remove staples, insert header sheets, or sort documents by type or department. After scanning, they index documents, correct errors or remove exception pieces that need to be returned to their owners, creating roadblocks to productivity, and a negative customer experience. Our S2000 Series and ScanStation models give you the flexibility to efficiently capture at the point of need - even in remote and front-of-house locations. Innovations in document feeding technology mean that users don’t need to be scanning experts to capture the best quality data. Active Feed technology automatically jogs pages so that they line up for scanning in the feeder without worry about alignment issues or jams. Capture Pro Software from Kodak Alaris helps to identify missing information on a document, like a signature. All our scanners offer industry leading Perfect Page image processing technology, superior paper handling for even the most challenging customer documents, and the highest reliability including leading support and service.
Converting older customer records is a burden many banks and financial institutions face, and can cost years of productivity for employees, not just in the conversion process, but in the time lost to finding and referencing the paper records before they are converted. Eliminating paper records is not only the means to achieve cost-efficient operations, it also mitigates risk with secure handling and storage.

The heavy duty cycles of these scanners ensure all-day operation, and are built with features to reduce manual labor in the scanning process. That helps keep costs low, while delivering Perfect Page image excellence and outstanding reliability backed by Kodak Alaris support.
Regulatory requirements continue to drive the need for accuracy and verification of documents.

Driver’s licenses, checks, and oddly sized forms create a challenge demanding a versatile capture solution. Production and departmental scanners from Kodak Alaris have a straight-through paper path, so it’s easy to digitize the wide range of documents needed to support new customer on boarding and loan applications.
