Pitney Bowes, a global technology company that provides innovative products and solutions to power commerce, is partnering with Alaris, a Kodak Alaris business, securing Premiere Partner status in the Alaris Partner Programme.
The collaboration, which covers the UK market, will combine Alaris' portfolio of world-class document scanners, capture software and service, with Pitney Bowes' existing range of high performance physical and digital technologies, which help organisations automate business processes and accelerate digital transformation initiatives.
Today, organisations recognise the need to get smarter about using data to deliver valuable insights, reduce costs, as well as improve customer relationships. This partnership, which brings together Alaris' and Pitney Bowes' technologies and expertise, will help customers to improve their document management and archive processes, capture and digitise physical information securely and efficiently, enabling them to leverage key information to drive business efficiency, growth and profitability.
Channel partners are an integral part of the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem which is designed to take the complexity out of information capture to simplify and improve the way people work. By helping organisations extract information from documents to increase productivity, enhance customer experiences and ultimately drive revenue growth, the IN2 Ecosystem delivers the Right Fit with seamless integration into customer environments, the Right Experience that simplifies information capture, and the Right Results that deliver superior business value and higher return on investment.
Commenting on the partnership, Alaris Marketing Manager Owen Balloch, said: "Successful digital transformation requires an integrated approach to information management. The journey starts with information capture - however the scale and complexity of data today requires a holistic solution, to help organisations not only capture, but to process, store and share all of this information. As a Premiere Partner, Pitney Bowes will play a vital role in the IN2 Ecosystem through their ability to connect, configure and create new solutions that meet customer needs."
Ryan Higginson, VP SMB Solutions at Pitney Bowes, said: "Our clients are at different stages of their digital transformation journeys, but they're all facing the same challenge of digitising documents in a secure, accessible way. The partnership with Alaris extends our portfolio and widens choice for clients, helping them accelerate their digital transformation programmes."
Higginson continued: "This collaboration is a perfect example of our 'client first' approach - we listened to what our clients needed for their organisations and sought a partnership which would help us deliver exactly that."
