Pitney Bowes, a mailstream technology company, is planning to launch imaging and workflow systems with Kodak to help US customers manage critical documents and information.
According to Pitney Bowes, the systems provide automated workflow functionality, including document scanning, automatic indexing, secure storage, retrieval and integration into a single, central repository.
Pitney Bowes has said that its imaging and workflow systems allow customers to capture business critical documents electronically and house them in a central, secure repository. Organizations can also establish business rules on how to capture information and who can access it with full audit trail accountability.
Leslie Abi-Karam, executive vice president and president for mailing solutions management at Pitney Bowes, said: Paper documents are a fact of life in all organizations, but they have some disadvantages. Paper is not easily searchable, it is expensive to store and retrieve, and it is hard to associate the information on one document with the information on other documents.
