Press Release: Support for Windows XP and Internet   Explorer 8


16th May 2014


We are sure that you have heard Microsoft stopped support for Windows XP at the beginning of April, but you may not be aware at the same time they have also ended support for Internet Explorer 8 (IE8).


We have waited for the dust to settle as none of the products we supplied are thus far affected due to Microsoft stopping support. However, going forward you do need to consider that the use of these unsupported products is likely to become more of a problem, specifically:


Firstly, although current installations of Formate on XP it will continue to function just as it always has, the existence of an XP machine on your network may prove to be a vulnerability in future, and it can't be guaranteed that future versions of Formate will be installable on XP.


Secondly, the ability to use IE8 to access infoRouter, whilst supported on your current instance of infoRouter , may cease at any time as IE8 compatibility will no longer be a consideration in infoRouter Development. (As a Microsoft partner, Active Innovations has followed Microsoft's lead on the support of IE8). In practical terms, this means that any Microsoft Windows Server update, or infoRouter update could lead to problems using IE8 with infoRouter.

We would be grateful if you could contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., Technical Director, if you do have any system provided by us running on XP, or you use IE8, so that we can build a database to better support you in future.


Document-Genetics-GlobeInformation risk higher for acquisitions than mergers, study reveals

15th May 2014

Company acquisitions can have a devastating impact on information security and management, with the employees of acquired firms more preoccupied with the potential impact on their role than with the need to effectively integrate the information of both companies, according to new European research. This lack of focus during an acquisition could leave information at increased risk of loss or exposure. The picture is different when companies merge, and employees stay focused on integration and ensuring company information remains well managed.

Document-Genetics-GlobeNew Central Scanning Solution Uses PC-Free Network Connectivity to Provide Easy Access to Work Teams

24th April 2014

A new line of network scanners from Kodak Alaris provides organizations with a central scanning solution that allows users to efficiently capture information from documents and route it into key business processes without the need for a dedicated PC. Until now, many organizations have been unable to automate some paper-based business processes because a PC isn't appropriate for the work location (e.g. employees in a particular department don't require PCs). In other instances, employees may have PCs but it's preferable that they are limited to performing specific tasks. The KODAK Scan Station 700 Series is ideal for either scenario.

Document-Genetics-GlobeKodak i4000 Plus Scanners designed for intensive advanced document recognition applications where fast data extraction is key

4th April 2014

Interest in Advanced Document Recognition technology including OCR has grown considerably as companies seek to automate key business workflows such as forms and claims management, invoice processing, mail, medical records digitising, along with providing support for powerful data mining applications.

To achieve this quickly and cost effectively, scanning hardware and software must do the 'heavy lift' image processing accurately while minimising operator involvement. This improves staff productivity, maximizes efficiency, and most importantly ensures the right data from documents is extracted.

Kodak Alaris announces the launch of its next generation KODAK i4000 Plus Series Scanners, specifically designed to meet these demanding information processing requirements.
