As part of the company’s automation and digitization efforts, Zurich International Life made the decision to upgrade its document capture capabilities, starting with the deployment of ten Kodak i3400 Scanners from Kodak Alaris. The award-winning scanners are purpose-built to deliver consistent throughput and minimize downtime. Mr. Ramesh Ramakrishnan, Head of IT, Middle East at Zurich International Life estimates that in the insurance industry, the deployment of scanners can typically save 80 percent of the workload.
Zurich International Life is part of the Zurich Insurance Group, offering investment and protection solutions in the Middle East. The company has been operating in international markets around the globe for many years. In the Middle East, customers have trusted Zurich for almost 30 years to protect their futures and provide financial security for their families and businesses.
Talking about the need for scanners, Mr. Ramesh says, “Fifteen years back there was no integration between technology & business. But all that has changed. Technology is not just seen as a business enabler, but as a business driver. CIOs now report into CFOs. The intent is to be more agile and cater to growing demands of business so that the business is able to generate more revenue.”
