Alaris, a Kodak Alaris business, has set for expanding its portfolio to provide several convenient and affordable new options for purchasing its information capture solutions. Alaris Capture Pro Software and Alaris Info Input Solution are now available as one-year subscriptions in addition to existing perpetual licensing options.
“Alaris is committed to supporting clients who choose traditional perpetual licenses as well as those who prefer a subscription-based model,” said Don Lofstrom, President & General Manager, Alaris, a Kodak Alaris Business.
Affordability is the key benefit to customers. As per a survey conducted by IDC, the acquisition cost of solutions is the largest hurdle for businesses to clear when automating document-based workflows. A subscription model offers a lower barrier to entry. Customers can pay as they go and align spending with usage of the software instead of investing in a large upfront capital purchase. An added benefit is that subscription-based pricing gives customers the flexibility to scale up and down based on needs of the business.
