When Barry Shermer, VP of Information Technology for Windsor Health Group, was introduced to the KODAK Scan Station 100 at a Cabinet NG end user conference in 2007, it was the network connectivity the device provided that appealed to him most.
"Our remote offices are our major activity hubs, and they were already tied back to our corporate office via our VPN [virtual private network]," says Shermer
...Cecily Tate, director of enrollment, and Barry Shermer, VP of IT, for Windsor Health Group
...The CIO passed the call along to Barry Shermer, Windsor Health Group's VP of Information Technology, who was heading up the search for a content management platform that would allow the company to better manage its member enrollment forms.Shermer
invited representatives from Cabinet NG
to Windsor Health Group's
corporate office for a standard software demonstration and proposal.On the surface, Cabinet NG's
CNG-SAFE electronic document management platform seemed to be a fit for Windsor Health
from a feature and cost perspective.However, to be certain, Shermer
and Tate wanted to see the product in action in a live work environment.
and Tate spent several hours on-site at The Bone & Joint Clinic, shadowing users of the CNG-SAFE product and asking them questions about its performance.
Then, in May 2007, Shermer
attended a Cabinet NG user conference where he
was introduced to the KODAK Scan Station 100 network document scanner (see sidebar on page 18).
