Kecam Technologies Limited, an information technology organization and authorized Fujitsu scanner sales and services partner for Nigeria participated in an industry event to set the agenda for data protection compliance and digital transformation of organizations across Nigeria.
Organizations are beginning to take document digitization to the next level due to increasing demand for compliance as well as document and data protection.
Kecam Technologies Limited in conjunction with Fujitsu participated in the event during January 2019 for end-users across banking, insurance, finance, education, transportation and shipping, government, legal, oil & gas, and manufacturing amongst others.
The event showcased various Fujitsu Document Imaging Solutions from the entry-level scanners to high-end high-speed enterprise scanners based on cutting-edge technologies and ease of use and maintenance.
According to Bonny Mekwunye, Vice Chairman of Kecam Technologies Limited, “Fujitsu Document Imaging Solutions cannot be compared with the competition because of their ruggedness, ease of use as well as extremely-low total cost of maintenance and award winning capture software”.
Furthermore, Mr Mekwunye maintained that with the increasing demand for compliance as well as document and data protection, organizations are beginning to take document digitization serious and to the next level.
According to Mr Mekwunye, “using the right equipment and software needed to protect your valuable information cannot be take for granted. Fujitsu Document Imaging Scanners, both standalone and network scanners, are primed to deliver superior productivity, low cost of ownership bundled with Fujitsu Paperstream software that will make your digital transformation easy and effortless”.
Equally, the Fujitsu PaperStream Capture Pro – a powerful capture process software helps organizations of all sizes to increase efficiency of their document scanning processes, flexibly transforms documents from many sources into valuable business data, and provides powerful and intuitive user experience and automated data extraction that minimizes administration.
For organizations that depend on paper-based processes, PaperStream Capture Pro is the scanning, extracting and releasing software that enables you to digitize your paper-based data in order to optimize your information flow and knowledge sharing. With PaperStream Capture Pro, you can: • Improve workflows, • Increase efficiency, • Achieve easier compliance, • Gain better visibility, • Perform with greater agility, and • Enhance customer experiences.
In combination with the fi Series document scanners it enables organizations to quickly convert paper-based data into valuable business information. PaperStream Capture Pro helps organizations ranging from small and medium-sized businesses to large enterprises and public services to minimize effort and complexity and boost the business efficiency of document capture processes.
The event included practical demonstration of the PFU broad portfolio of document scanners for professional personal, desktop, workgroup, high-volume production and networked environments in addition to Paperstream and Scansnap Manager.
According to Adrian Cafferkey, Regional Manager – African, PFUE LTD – a Fujitsu company, “our software enables the scanning and consolidation of images from multiple sources. These can include document scanners from the Fujitsu fi Series, but also scanned images generated from other electronic sources such as MFPs or network scanners. Older legacy tiff files from fax machines are accepted for standardized capture using the same high-quality processes for image enhancement, quality control and processing. PaperStream Capture Pro manages the meta data of the scans, which once verified, can be used to automatically index the scanned files and release them to the desired back-end storage location e.g. local and cloud repositories, or ECM or DMS workflows according to preset rules and user profiles.”
He add that, “I am seeing first-hand the market drivers, the potential and desire for the benefits that document management can offer and am very excited about the opportunities across Nigeria, particularly around the solution piece that will help grow the market and enable companies to take that next step on their digital transformation journey.”
Mr Cafferkey further stated that “Worldwide shipments of Fujitsu branded scanners has surpassed 10 million units. Since 1983, Fujitsu branded scanners have been designed, manufactured and marketed by PFU Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu. PFU has continuously focused on its customers’ needs, offering a broad portfolio of document scanners for professional personal, desktop, workgroup, high-volume production and networked environments and is the world’s leading document scanner company”.
Adrian Cafferkey continued “Ever since the launch of the first fi Series scanner, PFU has continually developed new products and expanded its line-up, including the addition of ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) equipped models and high-speed scanners focusing on the needs of professional organizations around the world. PFU bundle the application Paperstream with fi Series scanners. Paperstream significantly enhances scanning productivity by creating even greater digital image quality from paper documents. Launched in 2001 by PFU, ScanSnap scanners take the complication out of document imaging with one-button ease of use, bringing duplex multi-sheet scanning to everyone, combining performance and affordability in a compact size. Furthermore, with the Wi-Fi compatible ScanSnap iX Series, overhead scanning with the ScanSnap SV600 and a scan-to-cloud capability with ScanSnap Cloud, PFU are leaders with image capture technology.”
Adrian Cafferkey stated “Image quality is much higher from a dedicated scanner than from using the scanner in a multifunction device/printer. In addition, a scanner can capture the content of a document and not just the image. With the right software, documents can be scanned and converted to editable Word, Excel or PowerPoint files. Scanned documents can be organized better, much faster and more easily than paper documents. Also, many document scanning systems integrate with business applications to allow faster access and the ability to share information in real-time”
Adrian Cafferkey continued that “PFU Limited is excited to work with Kecam Technologies Limited in supporting their various customers in Nigeria because of their strong technical expertise in the installation, maintenance and repairs of all ranges of Fujitsu Scanners”. Mr Cafferkey describes Nigeria as “a very important market for us and we hope to leverage further success and growth by taking advantage of the considerable skill sets of Kecam Technology, its substantial expertise, knowledge and impressive client base to extend the reach of our best in class products, solutions and service offerings”.
According to him, “Kecam Technologies Limited has been able to establish strong and strategic relationship with many global players and OEMs across Hardware Infrastructure, IT Security, Software and Consulting services.”
