Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading independent tester of  document imaging products, has honored 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 recognize 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 honor 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 honor  recognizes 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.”
