Arrow Imaging Purchases Three Kodak i1860 Production Scanners

Eastman Kodak Company announces that Arrow Imaging, a Tamworth-based service bureau, has purchased three i1860 production scanners to process an ever increasing amount of client documentation and add capacity for future growth. Capturing up to 200 pages per minute, the i1860s installed are the fastest production scanners ever made by Kodak.

Arrow Imaging specialises in offering a range of bespoke document management services from physical storage, document collection and disposal to higher value scanning, archiving, hosting and software solutions. An accredited Invu document management software partner providing sales, implementation and training services, it is British Standard ISO 14001/1996 and ISO 9001/2000 accredited.

The quantity of pages Arrow Imaging therefore scans per month has burgeoned, increasing from 3.5 million in September 2007 to 5 million today which equates to 238,000 per day. This has driven the need for the Kodak i1860 scanners which were purchased direct from Kodak distributor, Avnet, in the second half of 2007 in a deal worth over 200,000. Deployment was staggered with one scanner installed in September, October and December respectively. This is allowing Arrow Imaging to manage its additional workload without the need to recruit more staff, with the new units working alongside a number of Kodak 7520 scanners already in place.

Over and above throughput speed, the new i1860s offer additional benefits to Arrow Imaging such as the ability to cope with a broader range of paper size and paper quality, from till receipts to A3 sized documents even in a high speed production environment. With Kodak's feature rich Capture Software, Arrow Imaging can scan into any format based on client need including TIFF, PDF, black and white, grayscale or colour.
