Many people assume that support services for the products they buy are an unnecessary add-on to the overall cost of an item. For the individual consumer, this is often a fair assessment. But when it comes to complex business systems and workflows, support services are critical to ensuring continual success after an initial investment has been made. It’s more than just responsive technical support; it’s about business assurance — the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the organization’s technology investments are always functioning optimally to make people’s jobs easier and more productive.

This is especially true of the document scanners that bridge paper-based workflows and archives into your digital systems. With the growing emphasis on accurate and secure information management and the competitive demand for speed, scanner support services are like a crucial member of the team, helping an organization get the most out of its investment.

Naji Kazak, General Manager - Middle East, Africa, Turkey & Russia of the Alaris division of Kodak Alaris says, “Document scanner support services are more than a number to call for tech support. These services help companies of all types and sizes to achieve their business objectives and improve their return on investment.”

These outcomes are made possible by increasing:

·         Productivity: With proactive maintenance, troubleshooting, and solution insights, the business will avoid costly downtime.

·         Reliability: Confidence in a service provider’s knowledge, expertise, and their regular updates to an organization’s software and firmware frees up staff time so that employees can focus on their business priorities.

·         Efficiency: Service professionals and field engineers fully support document workflows and can facilitate custom integrations, keeping an organization ahead of the curve.

·         Scalability: From budget protection to scalable service plans, scanner services help ensure that a company’s digitization efforts are supporting its business at every level as it grows.

·         Simplicity: Comprehensive services can turn the chaos of information management into a streamlined operation with a single service vendor for all hardware, software, and services.
