Digital Images on the Internet Now a 'Can Do' with New Software; EazyImage Professional(R) Saves Time and Money for Shop Owners

DALLAS, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- B.R.I.N.K. Kiosk Corporation®, makers of EazyImage®, a digital image management system for the Automotive Aftermarket and Real Estate Industry, announced today the release of EazyImage Professional®, a robust build on their already popular EazyImage product line.

EazyImage Professional, for the first time, will allow users to make available their digital images on the Internet. In addition, EazyImage Professional boasts some very hardy features such as scanned document support, custom print configuration, deluxe archiving, and custom database design.

``Our customers have been demanding faster and more inexpensive methods to manage and deliver their digital pictures and records, so it is no surprise that we had to design a package to meet their needs,'' said Gary Hart, Vice President of B.R.I.N.K. Kiosk Corporation.

Hart made the announcement today at the International Autobody Congress and Expo (NACE) held at the Dallas Convention Center.

``When it comes to processing claims in the insurance industry, time is a key factor in profitability,'' Hart noted. ``EazyImage Professional is the key for any insurance company to save time and money by quickly viewing damage. Transmitting digital pictures is nothing new, but we have streamlined the process in EazyImage Professional and have included many intuitive tools and features that do not exist in the market today.''

Internet Digital Imaging

``Typically, insurance companies and body shops alike have had to pay high fees to transmit digital images and records on proprietary networks. Easy access and reasonable cost is what EazyImage Professional is all about,'' said Rudy Lehman, President of B.R.I.N.K. Kiosk Corporation.

``EazyImage Professional demonstrates that proprietary networks are unnecessary and slow to adapt to change,'' Lehman added. ``By harnessing the power of the Internet, EazyImage Professional can deliver and handle an unlimited number of pictures and other related records which most proprietary networks cannot.''

``EazyImage Professional is the product that I have been waiting for,'' said Terry O'Donnell of Action Appraisal, a Phoenix-based independent insurance adjuster. ``I spend hundreds of dollars in overnight delivery fees to get pictures to insurance companies. With EazyImage Professional, I simply take pictures and transmit them using the Internet communications interface. The insurance companies have the pictures the same day and can make decisions to accept or deny claims without a shipping delay.''

Digital Image Management Software

With the advent of inexpensive scanners and digital cameras, body shops and adjusters can afford to install these devices in their office environments. The problem with making such a purchase has been the lack of software support for these products. EazyImage Professional is designed to leverage the power of digital picture and document management.

``Our primary concern is the loss of important paperwork in a claimant's record,'' says Perry Black, Body Shop Manager for Sunland Mercury in Glendale, Arizona, owned by George Kirklin. ``We have many vendors who deliver products and give us handwritten receipts that are supposed to go into the claimant's file. Incorrectly filing these receipts or outright losing them is a problem for shops and adjusters. With EazyImage Professional, I can scan these receipts and other important paperwork right into the claimant's record and always be able to find them.''

B.R.I.N.K. Kiosk Corp.'s EazyImage is a digital image management system for the automotive and real estate markets that allows for the management of digital images. With the typical cost of a Polaroid print around a dollar and a 35mm print around fifty cents, EazyImage reduces the cost per image to less than three cents. With this type of cost savings, collision centers, insurance adjusters and real estate agents have the freedom to take and print as many pictures as they want without compromising the budget. EazyImage also extends the capabilities of many popular industry software packages. More information is available at http://www.eazyimage.com.
