Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading independent tester of document imaging products, has honoured Kodak Alaris with the Buyers Lab (BLI) 2022 Scanner Line of the Year Award. The global information capture specialist has claimed this prestigious accolade six times in the past seven years.
The BLI Line of the Year Awards recognise companies that provide a broad range of hardware or software products that consistently outperform competitors throughout Keypoint Intelligence’s rigorous lab testing. Analysts consider ease of use, features, performance and value across an entire portfolio, and bestow the Line of the Year honour to the vendor whose product line is determined to be the best overall.
“After another rigorous year of scanner testing, Kodak Alaris still reigns supreme, taking home their sixth BLI Scanner Line of the Year Award in the last seven years,” said Lee Davis, Associate Director of Software/Scanners at Keypoint Intelligence. “No matter which segment you look at, you’ll find scanners from Kodak Alaris are among the top performers in each category that Keypoint Intelligence evaluates, including in the critical areas of reliability, media handling, productivity, and OCR accuracy.”
This latest award follows the news that Kodak Alaris claimed the first ever BLI 2021-2022 PaceSetter Award in Distributed Capture. Based on research conducted in the North American market, this honour recognises the OEM with the leading distributed capture technology portfolio, including single-function scanners, capture software and professional services offerings.
The Kodak S3000 Series Scanner was also chosen by Keypoint Intelligence analysts as winner of the Winter 2021 Pick Award for Outstanding Departmental Scanner. Keypoint Intelligence commended the S3000 Series for its outstanding value, excellent reliability and OCR read rates, superior media handling capabilities and software integration – including Kodak Capture Pro and Kodak Info Input Solution – to help businesses extend digital automation to the point of capture.
“Earning this prestigious title is a great honor. We are very proud that our portfolio of smart and powerful scanning solutions, powered by decades of image science innovation, has again been independently validated by Keypoint Intelligence,” said Don Lofstrom, President & General Manager at Kodak Alaris. “To retain our status as the most awarded scanner manufacturer in Keypoint Intelligence’s 60-year history is hugely rewarding and humbling.”
