"KODAK Capture Pro Software v3.1 enables new and existing users of our recently released Network Edition to take advantage of all the powerful new features from the previous generation, including Microsoft® SharePoint Setup Wizard and Intelligent QC," said Tim Mortenson, Worldwide Business Director, Software, Document Imaging, Kodak's Business Solutions and Services Group. "With this release, Capture Pro Software brings added benefits in efficiency and applicability—to provide users cost effective and quick return on investment in operating across an enterprise—where there is a need to centrally manage and monitor multiple capture and indexing stations."
KODAK Capture Pro Software, v3.1
Capture Pro Software, v3.1 provides customers with close integration to SharePoint (2007 and 2010 versions). A SharePoint set-up wizard greatly improves the ease, speed and accuracy with which customers can import existing SharePoint library column definitions directly into Capture Pro, reducing set-up errors and enabling better data integrity.
Comprehensive support and compatibility for third-party content management software enables Capture Pro Software to also serve as an effective front-end capture platform for SharePoint and additional digital environments. Integration between Capture Pro Software and these systems assists businesses to more efficiently process and distribute digital documents and metadata to specific locations.
Capture Pro Software, v3.1 uses Kodak's Intelligent Quality Control (QC) capability, an image quality control and enhancement tool, which can automatically identify images with challenging noise characteristics that may need additional adjustments. A simple, but powerful post-scanning quality control tool makes it easy to re-process those images, even when the original source document is not available, providing more consistent results across a range of input sources. All of this allows customers to increase the efficiency and accuracy of downstream data recognition processes and human image readability, helping to speed up important business processes.
The Intelligent QC, SharePoint integration and other advanced capabilities of Capture Pro Software, v3.1 allow end users to easily scan, index and extract data from paper-based documents. Capture Pro Software also readily prepares these scanned images for use in business processes related to storage, organization and preservation.
