Anoto penDocuments Pro Available with OKI Printing Solutions CX2033 Plus & C610
Westborough, MA (June 22, 2010) — The Anoto Group, the inventor of digital pen and paper technology, and OKI Data Americas, which markets its products under the OKI Printing Solutions brand, today announced that OKI Data Americas will bundle the Anoto penDocuments Pro digital pen product with its C610 and CX2033 MFP Plus products.The Digital Pen Printing Solution delivers an innovative and cost-effective way for businesses to improve workflow and data capture by circumventing processes such as document scanning and emailing. Additionally, the packaged solution captures signatures, an important factor when proof of signature is required.
“By combining OKI Printing Solutions’ award-winning printing technology with the power of the Anoto penDocuments Pro, our partners will be able to deliver a complete digital solution to our customer base, significantly improving workflows, preserving data accuracy and reducing the amount of storage needed when working with tangible copies,” said Doug August, Senior Product Manager, Software and Solutions at OKI Data Americas. “The Digital Pen Printing Solution enables customers to quickly and easily share and manage handwritten documents through bypassing the need to scan or email, helping to increase office efficiency.”
OKI Data Americas has collaborated with the Anoto Group for the past five years qualifying devices to meet the rigorous Anoto standards. The Anoto penDocuments Pro is fully compatible with both the C610 and CX2033 MFP Plus products and works with any Microsoft Office application or PDF. Users simply print the document or form needed for their business, and the bundled solution automatically applies a unique pattern of microdots, called the Anoto dot pattern, to the document as it is produced. Users can then utilize the Anoto digital pen to populate the document as they would with a normal ink pen. The dot pattern enables the digital pen to register and store a user’s handwriting in its memory. When the pen is docked in its USB cradle, the recorded handwriting is downloaded and matched with the image of the original document – instantly creating an exact copy of the handwritten document in PDF format. Whether a simple signature or multiple fields of information are required, the Digital Pen Printing Solution is an improvement to the traditional process of handling hard copy forms and is helping to transition businesses into the next generation of electronic workflow.
“Extending our partnership with OKI Printing Solutions to include Anoto penDocuments Pro with its superior printing solutions means we’re able to provide new levels of productivity and data capture to a much wider market,” said Pietro Parravicini, President and CEO, Anoto, Inc. “Integrating Anoto penDocuments Pro with OKI Printing Solutions innovative technology enables customers to use the digital pens more effectively, significantly improving workflows and delivering a greater level of cost-effectiveness.
The Digital Pen Printing Solution can be used in a number of private and public industries, including Field Services, Healthcare, Financial Services, Insurance, Retail and Manufacturing/Transportation.
