Rochester, NY, -- At the AIIM On Demand Conference & Exposition, Eastman Kodak Company and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. today announced that Kodak is launching a digital document archive service based on JPMorgan Chase’s powerful

i-VAULT! technology. KODAK Digital Archive Services will be available only through selected authorized resellers in the U.S. and Canada.

KODAK Digital Archive Services provide companies a single, secure, digital archive with nearly unlimited storage capacity for their critical business information.

Customers can scan and index their own document images or have an authorized reseller of KODAK Digital Archive Services perform the scanning and indexing tasks. The files will be stored in a virtual archive with multiple layers of security and multiple points of redundancy. Furthermore, the security capabilities include patented controls that enable customers to customize and control accessibility of data throughout their organization. The robust indexing capabilities allow up to 30 index fields to provide retrieval of information in seconds via the Internet, regardless of location.

“Combining Kodak’s leadership in document imaging with JPMorgan Chase’s expertise in digital document archiving, KODAK Digital Archive Services offer clients outstanding document management and outstanding security,” said Ronald McMillin, Director of Business Development, US&C, Document Imaging, Graphic Communications Group. “It frees companies to concentrate on their core business competency by eliminating the need to maintain specialized technologies and resources for document management and digital archiving.”

“We characterize i-VAULT! as an ‘industrial strength’ image archive and retrieval solution. It employs the highest level of security standards, consistent with a web-based financial transaction application. It is also protected by two U.S. patents 1,” said Jeff Schor, Product Manager, JPMorgan Chase. “Today on i-VAULT!, more than 140,000 users have secure access to more than 116 terabytes of data, the equivalent of tens of billions of pages. We are excited that Kodak has launched KODAK Digital Archive Services, powered by i-VAULT!”

KODAK Digital Archive Services include:

Capture—Customers or resellers of KODAK Digital Archive Services can capture images using KODAK document scanners that feature Perfect Page technology for outstanding image quality.
