One of the things that we are noting with clients who have moved to new computer hardware running Windows 8 is they are surprised to find out that there are no drivers available for accessories they already own. They have assumed that if their printer, scanner, fax or other peripheral has worked with Windows XP, Vista or 7 they will be able to hook it up with Windows 8 and continue its use.

Part of the saga of Kodak's bankruptcy protection has come to an end as the Kodak Personal Imaging Business and Document Imaging Business is given a new name by the new owner the UK Kodak Pension Plan. Kodak Alaris will be the new name, maintaining the Kodak identity but showing that this is a new entity.
Kyocera Document Solutions is continuing to refine and add to the suite of available applications which support their line of multifunction printers (mfp).
Recent news announcing the approval by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York of the Kodak Comprehensive Settlement with U.K. Pension Plan is good news for the document management business.
Most mfp printers will support scanning in one form or another. Using SMTP protocols they can provide efficient scanning to folders on networks. Unfortunately, with the increased concerns over network security setting up network scanning has become a more challenging process.
One of the services we provide is an outsourced scanning bureau for clients looking to convert their paper files to electronic records. I have observed the process we apply to this busy part of our operation and one thing that becomes abundantly clear is that productivity in any scanning operation is seriously affected by the way paper files are created.
So do you not want us to maintain the document feeder/scanner!
One of the strangest trends that seems to have traction in support pricing for MFP printers is pressure to provide scans on the device for Free.
