Birmingham, AL, USA / Konstanz, DE, 26.04.2018: True to their motto “Inspirational. Alive. Digital. “, an independent jury for the renowned German organization http://www.imittelstand.de/ have chosen the most innovative solutions for digital transformation for medium-sized businesses. Every year Initiative Mittelstand selects the best solution for these prestigious awards from several hundred applicants. This year’s winner in the “Hardware” category is the American capture specialist ibml.
“For me, innovation means conceiving and realizing approaches that are not only novel, but above all demonstrably better than the previous ones,” says Beate Heider, Managing Director of Huber Verlag for New Media, and responsible for the Innovation Awards at the Initiative Mittelstand IT 2018. “A new IT age has begun and ibml is a company that represents this new age. We were convinced by ibml because of the capabilities their scanners bring to the critical first stage of a continuous digital process. They open up completely new ways for users to automate key value creation processes throughout an organization. ibml’s scanner concepts are demonstrably more innovative and perform better than the other providers in the market”.
“In addition to digitizing documents, the award-winning ImageTrac© 6000 Series Scanners simplify and accelerate the entire capture process, from scan preparation to post-processing,” said Steffen Unmuth, Sales Director at ibml. “Data is extracted, checked and reconciled during scanning. The follow-on workflow systems can thus process all data immediately.“
Classic users of ibml’s ImageTrac 6000 Series Scanners are scan service providers or computer centers who work for banks, insurances, authorities, ministries or manufacturing companies. With their award, the jury recognized that the ImageTrac 6000 Series Scanners are fundamental to an enterprise’s digital transformation and in the realization of Industry 4.0 concepts in the business world. This is because ibml automates the entire process from inbox to digitizing, checking, extracting and transferring the data to the organization’s databases.
“Our scanners occupy an outstanding position when it comes to implementing new digital processes,” emphasizes Unmuth. “ibml systems deliver 100 percent validated data that all subsequent systems can use.”
Equipped with intelligent capture software, the ImageTrac 6000 Series machines scan documents at a rate of up to 438 A4 pages per minute, classify document types, and extract relevant data. “The ROI of the ibml scanners is typically reached after a few months,” says Unmuth. “In this way, we support scanning service providers and their customers in making a quick and easy entry into Industry 4.0.”
