Kodak’s Document Imaging division continues to help businesses and organizations
generate additional value from their investment in Microsoft SharePoint by
structuring and simplifying document entry and indexing. Built using SharePoint
2010 as a development platform, KODAK Info Activate Solution v1.1 provides powerful
new capabilities to help SharePoint administrators control business process
workflows and improve how knowledge workers capture and organize documents from
multiple sources into SharePoint libraries.
“While workforce adoption of Microsoft
SharePoint is on the rise, challenges remain in areas of information governance
and ease of use for end users. SharePoint implementations can present challenges
caused by a lack of governance tools to manage inconsistent workflows and
unstructured information,” said Rod Hughes, Kodak’s Business Director for
Software & Solutions, Document Imaging. “Info Activate Solution helps SharePoint
administrators gain greater control over the growing amount of content in
SharePoint and prevent errors caused by knowledge workers who incorrectly enter
or index information into document libraries.”
Solution v1.1 includes an optional workflow module that enables more efficient implementation
of business workflows. Administrators use a visual designer with drag-and-drop
graphic icons to easily replicate workflows such as sequences of reviews,
approvals, status updates and routing. “The workflow module in Info Activate
Solution v1.1 allows SharePoint administrators and business process owners to deploy
business process workflows that meet the needs of end users,” said Hughes.
administrators also can use Info Activate Solution v1.1 to control the field of
visible jobs in the user interface to ensure knowledge workers scan to the correct
SharePoint library. SharePoint library permissions define which workflows are
accessible to end users. These settings help minimize confusion and variability
that can lead to errors.
KODAK Info Activate
Solution v1.1 also introduces electronic file import capabilities that allow
users to enter electronic documents into the same workflows as hardcopy
documents. These include native digital files and electronic documents captured
from other office equipment such as fax or multifunction peripherals. An
OCR-assisted indexing system helps users save time and deliver more accurate
results versus manually keying in data. With a few clicks, users highlight the
information they want to automatically transfer from the document into an index
field. Info Activate Solution also includes a full-page barcode reader, which helps
to separate documents and eliminate manual steps in the indexing process.
“An effective distributed
enterprise capture system must address the comprehensive needs of both knowledge
workers and SharePoint administrators,” said Tony Barbeau, Kodak’s General
Manager for Document Imaging. “The enhancements for Info Activate Solution help
our customers adapt to the constant changes affecting their businesses.”

protection plans that help optimize the performance of the Info Activate
Solution for content management environments and other priority business
