A new “plug-and-play” scanning solution for Microsoft SharePoint based
on the KODAK Scan Station 520EX Platform is now available. The solution, called
BOLT Direct, features onboard SharePoint integration that simplifies how users
scan, name, route and index documents from a single networked device.
“BOLT Direct is an
example of how scanner technology from Kodak continues to provide application
partners with a platform for developing solutions that help businesses simplify
the user experience by making it easier to capture, manage and retrieve
documents within SharePoint,” said Rod Hughes, General Manager, Software and
Solutions for Kodak’s Document Imaging business. “In addition to the Scan
Station 520EX, Kodak is developing an array of solutions that help partners and
businesses take full advantage of SharePoint for document management and
professionals can use BOLT Direct’s network scanning to capture documents directly
to SharePoint in real time, which makes it easier to collect, manage, and share
content across business workflows. System administrators can attach the turnkey
solution to their network and go from box to scanning in just minutes.
Direct on the KODAK Scan Station 520EX platform has allowed us to focus on
providing businesses with easy-to-deploy “intelligent” scanning to SharePoint. The
solution combines robust capture features and superior image quality in a network
scanning device small enough to be deployed just about anywhere,” said Jeff
Nelson, Vice President of Bolt Document Management. “Our application blends
seamlessly with Kodak’s functional, easy-to-use LCD display and keyboard interface
and streamlines the document capture and storage process.”
The Scan Station
features an integrated LCD touchscreen that displays the BOLT Direct interface,
allowing users to log into SharePoint and access document libraries. Once a library is selected, the associated index fields are displayed and users can name documents and enter relevant information for enhanced
content management. Advanced SharePoint
features such as field types and drop-down pick lists
are supported, and users can create new folders directly
in SharePoint on the fly.
addition to integrating with SharePoint, BOLT Direct also integrates directly to
LASERFICHE Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems. An additional suite of scanning
utilities is also bundled within the unit to provide a complete office document
solution. The utilities allow users to scan to print, e-mail, fax or PDF. Scanned
documents have the added benefit of full-page optical character recognition (OCR) on each capture, which enables users to save
documents as searchable PDF files. The comprehensive functionality and advanced
imaging features enable users to convert paper documents into digital files for
easy distribution, sharing and collaboration.
As a networked device, the Scan
Station 520EX enables multiple users to share access to a solution capable of scanning
documents to email recipients, network locations and other file destinations. Kodak’s Perfect Page
Technology delivers automatic image enhancements that improve accuracy and quality
to deliver more efficient results. At
up to 45 pages per minute, the
device’s robust handling captures
documents in color or black-and-white and supports outstanding productivity with a recommended daily duty volume rating of up to 3,000 pages per day.
The BOLT Direct solution includes Kodak’s optional premium
keyboard and a full one-year advanced unit replacement program. An optional three-year advanced unit replacement warranty is also available for purchase. The warranty
program from KODAK Service and Support eliminates the need for complicated
and expensive warranty service programs frequently associated with other network
attached scanning solutions.
