We’re also excited to introduce our brand new channel policy which will ease the way of doing business with Kodak Alaris, thereby making the business more profitable for us as well as our partners. The Yatra which will see members of our global leadership team participate actively, emphasizes our commitment to expand our India market with continued investment and vigour. To this effect, Kodak Alaris has been bringing document scanners to India since 1999, and are now looking at expanding our offerings to cover the entire gamut of Information Management technologies. Our portfolio now encompasses not only hardware products and services, but also software and solutions.”
The Yatra will also seek to enlighten partners, especially in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities with Kodak Alaris’ new range of upcoming products and solutions. Additionally it will also serve as a platform to communicate to its partners about the high-margin post-sales services opportunities, which is fueling rapid growth.
With a view to offering its customers best in class products and solutions, Kodak Alaris recently announced the i1190, i3300 and the i5000 line of scanners which are state of the art and come embedded with the latest technologies. Kodak Alaris’ partnership with Google has further eased the way users can connect with document scanning devices from any type of computing environment by taking advantage of Brillo and Weave, the key pillars of Google’s IoT platform. Also earlier this year, Buyers Lab, LLC (BLI) recognized Kodak Alaris with the 2016 Scanner Line of the Year award for superior performance across its portfolio of document scanners. With 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.
