eCopy Unveils Products for Adding Paper-Based Information to CM Applications

Apr 05, 2005

eCopy Inc. has unveiled two open platform architecture products that are designed to enable any office worker to integrate paper-based information into enterprise software applications using a range of digital copiers and scanners. The eCopy products--eCopy ShareScan OP v3.0 and eCopy ScanStation OP v3.0--enable organizations to set a software standard across the enterprise for scanning and incorporating documents into business applications, such as enterprise content management for EMC Documentum, Interwoven, Open Text, and Hummingbird. Supported platforms for the new eCopy products include Canon, HP, Océ, Ricoh, Sharp, and Toshiba digital copiers, and Fujitsu scanners.

eCopy ShareScan OP is document imaging and distribution software that transforms digital copiers and scanners into information hubs by integrating hardcopy documents directly into the workflow of business processes, such as reporting, administration, document management, financials, human resources, and customer management. The software's set of services include optical character recognition (OCR), image processing, searchable PDF creation, Bates Stamping, and 128-bit file encryption. eCopy ScanStation OP is an ergonomic, integrated system that consists of a touch screen, keyboard, and PC, which is optimized to operate ShareScan OP software on non-embedded architecture digital copiers and scanners.

ShareScan OP and ScanStation OP are built on eCopy's Open Platform Architecture, which makes it possible for independent software vendors (ISVs) to access eCopy's document scanning services on virtually any digital copier or scanner by developing one software connector for all platforms. It eliminates the need for ISVs to build individual software connectors for each platform.
