Captovation Announces Support for Canon imageRUNNER Multifunction Devices
MINNEAPOLIS- Captovation, a developer of document and check capture software, has announced integration support between its distributed capture software - Captovation Web Capture - and Canon imageRUNNER multifunction devices (MFDs) that scan, print, copy and fax documents. Configuring Web Capture to utilize an imageRUNNER as a scanning device simply involves installing the appropriate Canon ScanGear software. Web Capture users then utilize the ScanGear's TWAIN driver user interface to search for and select any available device on the network. The MFD selected by a user becomes the default scanning device for their workstation.
Image Access, a Captovation VAR (value-added reseller), confirmed integration support by testing Web Capture with three imageRUNNER models: C3380, 4570, and the C5180. Their tests demonstrated Web Capture's ability to initiate document scanning from a Web Capture workstation or from the imageRUNNER itself. After scanning, users can review and index the document images within Web Capture, preparing them for electronic archival within virtually any enterprise document management system.
Traditionally, office workers have used the scanning capabilities of an MFD to scan to an email inbox or network folder. Sharing and storing documents in this manner is conducive in office environments where one-to-one or one-to-few communication takes place, but this method lacks the business benefits of a document management system.
Organizations looking to deploy distributed capture systems at their remote offices can further leverage their MFD investments by integrating Captovation Web Capture. Web Capture does not require manual software installation and runs entirely within a web browser. This means organizations will be able to quickly begin capturing documents at all content creation points, and in turn, get documents into workflow faster, expedite information sharing, and improve overall document management throughout the enterprise.
"Web Capture's user interface, feature set and ease-of-installation make it a
viable distributed capture system for any office utilizing a Canon imageRUNNER
device," said Brian Salles, Senior Systems Engineer at Image Access who
conducted the Web Capture/imageRUNNER testing. "We are excited to offer our
clients the distributed capture capabilities Captovation Web Capture provides."
