Kodak Alaris’ Document Imaging Division today announced the latest release of its award-winning KODAK Capture Pro Software. Featuring mark detection and an expanded range of output options, KODAK Capture Pro Software v4.5 helps customers simplify capture, automate indexing and maximize software connectivity for a wide range of centralized and distributed scanning applications.

“Since it first released Capture Pro Software to enable high speed document capture, Kodak Alaris has been steadily increasing the functionality,” said Harvey Spencer, President of Harvey Spencer Associates, an analyst firm with more than 20 years of experience in the capture software market. “Release 4.5 shows continuing commitment to capture software and complements the company’s other moves in this area. It further improves the value for businesses and service providers by reducing key entry, expanding its export options to ECM and providing improved statistics for billing and productivity”

The latest addition to Kodak Alaris’ flagship capture suite, Capture Pro Software v4.5 (www.kodak.com/go/CaptureProNews) quickly and efficiently converts forms and business documents into high-quality images and data required for use in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and business applications. Capture Pro Software already benefits tens of thousands of users in a wide range of capture environments, from departmental to production workflows, by accelerating critical business applications including accounts receivable, claims processing, mailroom and back-file conversion, using a large number of document scanners from Kodak Alaris and other manufacturers.

“Businesses and public institutions are under increasing pressure to automate their business processes. They continue to receive large volumes of paper based documents that present a significant bottleneck in their workflows,” said Tony Barbeau, General Manager for Kodak Alaris’ Document Imaging Division. “Capture Pro Software v4.5 helps customers respond to this need by making it simpler, more efficient and productive to provide critical data to business processes.”

The new version, available starting November 2013, includes many of the features that made Capture Pro Software a winner of BLI’s 2013 Winter Pick Award, with significant new customer benefits related to the indexing and connectivity of the software. Applications involving forms, such as job applications or surveys, feature mark detection that enables users to detect and capture checkmarks and populate corresponding index fields. Capture Pro Software v4.5 also makes it easier to locate and navigate to desired content in PDF files by enabling the creation of PDF bookmarks when outputting multiple documents into a single PDF file. Capture Pro Software v4.5 expands its connectivity options to enable output to secure FTP sites, ALFRESCO, KODAK Info Activate Solution and KODAK Info Insight Platform. The new version offers enhanced Microsoft SharePoint connectivity with support for SharePoint 2013 and third-party document libraries.

Capture Pro Software v4.5 makes it simpler to track productivity or create billing statements by collecting all batch statistics in a single Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) database, a feature that will particularly benefit service providers. Users will also see more productivity from their Auto Import function, which will now run as a service, providing true operator independence.

Kodak Alaris offers Software Assurance for KODAK Capture Pro Software v4.5, which includes software updates, version upgrades at no additional charge, technical support and other resources for businesses to ensure their software investment serves their needs.  Additional support from KODAK Professional Services for Document Imaging Solutions helps businesses identify their specific needs and find the best solutions available on the market.
