Foster City, CA /Malvern, PA (May 6, 2009) – EFI, the world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, and IKON Office Solutions, Inc., a Ricoh company, today announced IKON DocSend Server, a software solution that can convert existing Multi Function Printers (MFPs) into powerful document capture and distribution devices. With 23 percent of documents existing only in paper format*, this solution provides quick and easy transformation of paper documents into digital files for instantaneous information delivery and simplified storage from Ricoh MFPs with embedded Java Software Developers Kit (SDK) capabilities. Leveraging the groundbreaking technology of IKON DocSend, the new IKON DocSend Server is hosted on a centralized Windows server that communicates to client applications running on MFP control panels, allowing customers to connect and manage multiple MFPs from one centralized server.
IKON DocSend Server is an ideal solution for corporate enterprises such as financial services, insurance, healthcare, higher education, and legal services that handle sensitive hard copy documentation, enabling easy archive and retrieval while providing for a high level of security. The solution converts existing MFPs into interactive interfaces that make it easier to leverage the embedded and advanced functionalities of smart MFPs, including e-mail, fax, scan and document management – all from a single networked device. With IKON DocSend Server, any file can be captured and quickly converted into a Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, or Adobe PDF file for editing, reformatting, archiving or distribution. Eliminates the need to re-type documents that are only available in paper format, saving time, physical storage space and resources while helping to create a greener office environment. Provides state-of-the-art security measures & powerful sender authentication & audit trail features to ensure compliance with federal regulations.
IKON DocSend Server supports various interfaces (also called connectors) to document management systems to further enhance productivity by facilitating streamlined business processes across the enterprise. The supported connectors include email, OCR, legal stamping, scan-to-folder, Ricoh DocumentMall, Microsoft SharePoint, Documentum, EFI Digital StoreFront and many others.
