The i1150WN and i1190WN scanners, enable connectivity through the office network or over Wi-Fi for a variety of office environments. Equipped with standard drivers (TWAIN, ISIS), users can integrate the scanners with their existing and legacy business applications, eliminating extra steps in the capture process and complicated software installations. IT administrators can also set security levels and disable wireless and mobile if needed, providing them with more efficient device management. A control panel supports custom commands and offers colour-coded icons to make scanning quick and easy.

“Most wireless scanners are fine for individual users but they are not designed for sharing in a workgroup or connecting with business applications,” said Susheel John, Worldwide Category Director, Distributed Capture, Kodak Alaris Information Management. “Our wireless/network scanners offer the flexibility and versatility that users need to manage complex document processes. They also provide integration capabilities that allow organisations to invest in new software and applications to address the evolving needs of their business, while meeting the needs of legacy applications today.”

The ScanMate+ Mobile App lets users scan quickly and easily to a tablet or mobile phone from the i1150WN or i1190WN scanner. The app also makes it convenient to share files via email and to cloud-based applications such as SharePoint, Box or Evernote. Organisations can integrate proprietary mobile apps with Kodak Alaris scanners using a web application programming interface (API).

Buyers Lab (BLI) recognised Kodak Alaris with the 2016 Scanner Line of the Year award for superior performance across its broad portfolio of document scanners. Kodak Alaris also won multiple BLI Winter Pick Awards—one in each of three key scanner categories: networked, departmental and production. Kodak Alaris holds the most Pick awards out of any scanner manufacturer tested by BLI.


The ScanMate+ Mobile App is free to download for iOS and Android
