With easy collaboration, the i2600 gives opportunity for central access, or multiple outlets. But with the i2600, all the alterations come from your desktop, so it’s easy to change settings, locations, file output and more without being right next to the scanner. Ideal for companies with multiple offices, this scanner is sure to give you exactly what you need, for a still reasonable price.

How Lifetime Care cut errors, saved patients’ time, and reduced costs

As one of the necessary components of our society, healthcare and health assistance is nothing to be taken lightly. Ranking in the 98th percentile of New York agencies, Lifetime Care has a standard to uphold for its patients and for those who work alongside the team to ensure quality service for the community. With experienced and respected professionals, Lifetime Care’s family satisfaction for hospice care rates above 96 percent, proving that they’re making people happy. With such responsibility, Lifetime Care needs reliable products in order to give their customers the best service—which is why they chose to minimize manual data entry and reap the benefits of Kodak Capture Pro Software.

With a daily average of about 3,000 patients, Lifetime Care must be able to record and care for each patient efficiently and accurately. In the ‘90s, the agency outsourced its document scanning, and the third-party service proved to be time consuming, costly, and error-prone. In 2000, the switch to Kodak products was made and the process became a little easier. Reducing costs while improving image quality was something to be excited about, but the team decided they needed more.

With improved technology and time, Information Management Services, and Authorized Reseller of Kodak Document Scanners, assisted Lifetime Care in introducing barcodes to patient documents. With increased efficiency, these barcodes automatically fill in necessary patient information after a visit—reducing manual labor.

Throughout the past few years, Lifetime Care has upgraded to the Kodak Capture Pro Software Network Edition, increasing its efficiency. There is no worrying about patient misinformation or misinterpretation, everything has been running smoothly with this new technology and Lifetime Care is able to better serve its patients.

Cutting errors, optimizing allocation of patients’ time and reducing costs, Kodak Capture Pro Software has been a positive addition to the Lifetime Care team.

Are you ready to Perform Automatic Business Processes with Advanced Insight?

Consistently, new technologies are introduced to increase business effectiveness and automatic business processes with improved insight are such an advancement. Thanks to scripted, rule-based workflows, content entry has gotten a whole lot easier.

Think about simple data with simple data entry. It is unrecognized and it has no meaning. When it’s captured, the process to understanding has begun.

The data can then be classified so it turns into information where important components are identified, and that can be used in transactions. When complete, data has transformed into information and then knowledge for the organization to improve their understanding.

As demonstrated in the chart below, the process of data being captured to becoming understood knowledge, leads you through the transformation from Enterprise Content Management to Customer Experience Management. This means that you are taking the information from a company view and understanding how it will be utilized to benefit customers and their needs—which drives customer loyalty.

As another example, social media is data and companies are able to discover useful information to help maintain relationships and business partnerships—providing power to see concerns, complements, as well as feedback.

Using this methodology—Intelligent Document Understanding—will make your business more competitive.

Are face-to-face customer service experiences helping or hurting your reputation?

A customer service representative helps uses a Kodak ScanMate i1150 Scanner to quickly and easily capture customer information.

A customer service representative helps uses a Kodak ScanMate i1150 Scanner to quickly and easily capture customer information.

Do you strive for superior customer service?  Of course you do.  Most organizations have this as a tracked goal – especially if they have any face-to-face service opportunities – and it’s not easy to achieve.

Whether it’s an in-person transaction at a registration desk, city hall or municipal government office, medical location (hospital, clinic, dentist, etc.), insurance office, or another similar point of contact, customer service that drives satisfaction and loyalty is critical to building a positive reputation.  This is true for organizations of all sizes.

To provide the best experience for customers and to effectively enable service representatives, we have developed a solution (our Kodak ScanMate i1150 Scanner) that helps to:

  • Strengthen relationships with each customer by enabling the service representative to pay more attention and maintain their interaction with the customer rather than turning away or walking away for “technology” processes.
  • Address the customer’s questions and process the transaction quickly and efficiently without being rushed or frazzled.  Our solution includes a “transaction mode” that adds a burst of speed to each scanning job.
  • The built-in card ledge makes it easy to keep track of important documents during transactions.

    The built-in card ledge makes it easy to keep track of important documents during transactions.

    Keep track of all materials (papers, ID cards, insurance and medical documents, etc.) during the transaction.  The organization needs a complete and accurate record to process the transaction without having to follow up on additional requests.  Our built-in card ledge helps keep important cards and papers from getting lost or “misfiled.”

  • Maintain a pleasant customer service environment with an uncluttered, quiet location that allows access to all business needs right at the service representative’s fingertips.  We’ve made this possible via a solution with a compact footprint that is “whisper” quiet.
  • Get critical transaction information to the right place and the right process at the right time with our Smart Touch feature.

With the right solution, providing superior customer service is easier.  It also helps to improve the service representative’s daily job experience.  Of course a significant benefit for the organization is that the number of transactions per day increases.
