Kodak and Quality Associates, Inc. (QAI) have helped The Fund for Johns Hopkins Medicine (FJHM) process more than 45,000 donor checks from 15 different development offices—using a remote deposit capture solution that completes the task faster, more efficiently, and with fewer physical processes than The Fund’s previous manual approach.
FJHM serves as the philanthropic branch for the primary research, treatment and educational programs at Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM). The new system enables FJHM to operate a more streamlined records management process. Users can capture data, share information, make the deposit and post their receipts—all within less than three business days.
QAI, an Authorized Reseller of KODAK Products and a customized services and solutions provider for large-scale document management, worked with FJHM to implement the solution. The new approach uses Kodak’s portfolio of desktop scanners and Kodak’s check scanning platform, the KODAK t6000 Transaction Software. The full solution is backed by KODAK Care Kit packages offered by KODAK Service and Support.
Since the arrival of the remote deposit capture solution, the entire FJHM development office has completely revamped its check-scanning practices. Using the flexible, versatile desktop scanners from Kodak and QAI’s software configuration assistance, FJHM has fully transitioned into a paperless office. The new streamlined process has also enabled a new work group of dedicated personnel from each of the 15 donor offices to meet weekly. The personnel collaborate and share best practices as a team, all while enabling their fundraising counterparts to increase their focus on individual development efforts.Before the solution with Kodak and QAI, FJHM’s check processing required a complicated, labor-intensive project. The final deposit of checks could take as long as seven to 10 business days. Administrative professionals from each of the 15 development offices were often burdened by manual copying and paperwork tasks. They also had to spend time transporting the physical paper checks to outside banking institutions.
