Winner selected by 10,000 readers of UK Document Manager magazine

Guildford-based Imaging Business Machines, LLC (IBML), manufacturer and supplier of the high-speed ImageTrac® Colour Scanning Platform, has been named winner of the prestigious DM Awards Scanner Product of the Year 2007. The DM Awards, in their inaugural year, are highly coveted because the winner is voted for by readers of the UK’s leading content, document and records management publication, Document Manager (DM).

The Scanner Product of the Year 2007 award was presented to IBML by Stuart Leigh, Publisher of Document Manager, at a black-tie awards dinner held at the Novotel Hammersmith, London. IBML faced stiff competition from a formidable field of contenders, including Canon, Fujitsu, Toshiba, Kodak, Opex, Ricoh and Panasonic. “Scanner Product of the Year was the most fiercely fought category out of eighteen featured in the contest,” said Mr. Leigh. “IBML surged ahead in the early stages of voting, and maintained their leadership position throughout, to be crowned overall winner.”

Ashley Keil, Business Development Manager UK, Africa and Western Europe, received the award on behalf of IBML. ““We are thrilled to be presented with this award. It represents a huge vote of confidence in our company and our products from the user, reseller and bureau community that we – and our partners at EMC, Kodak and NCR – work so hard to serve,” commented Mr. Keil.

The ImageTrac system is well established internationally as a market-leading, high speed transport. It is used by bureaus, outsourcing specialists and user organisations around the globe to process large volumes of paper-based documents. Combining speed, tolerance and intelligence, the ImageTrac has become the platform of choice for many systems integrators and end users handling hybrid, mixed batch documents in transaction processing and digital mail room environments.
