Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab (BLI), an independent tester of document imaging products, has announced that Alaris, a Kodak Alaris business, has been honored with the BLI 2018 Scanner Line of the Year award. BLI analysts bestow the coveted Line of the Year honor once annually to the vendor whose product line is determined to be the best overall, with models at every level that excel in BLI’s rigorous two-month laboratory evaluations.
“BLI’s testing and analysis have shown that Alaris delivers a line packed with intelligent, automated features that help businesses optimize the way they integrate paper-based information into their mission-critical workflows, said Jamie Bsales, Director, Workflow Solutions at BLI. “This, plus the lab-proven reliability of Alaris scanners, has earned the global solution provider BLI’s prestigious Scanner Line of the Year award for the third consecutive year and the fourth time overall.”
In addition to the Line of the Year award, Alaris was honored with three other awards in BLI’s Winter 2018 Picks season for devices tested in the preceding six months. The Alaris S2000 Series was chosen by BLI analysts as winner of a Winter 2018 Pick for Outstanding Departmental Scanner, the Kodak i3300 Scanner won a Pick as Outstanding Light Production Scanner, and the Alaris Passport Flatbed Accessory was recognized with an Outstanding Achievement in Innovation award. “This makes Alaris by far the most-awarded scanner manufacturer in BLI’s 60-year history,” noted Bsales, “with 29 Pick and Outstanding Achievement awards to its credit, along with the four Line of the Year honors.”
Siddhartha Bhattacharya, Vice President Global Marketing, Alaris said, “Being recognized by the analysts at Buyers Lab for our imaging science expertise is always gratifying and humbling. This time is significant because it’s the first set of awards for our flagship Alaris S2000 Series Scanners.”
