Equitrac and Canon U.S.A. Announce MEAP-Embedded Solution
New York, NY – Equitrac Corporation and Canon U.S.A., Inc., announced the integration of the popular award-winning Equitrac Professional 5 print management and cost-recovery solution for legal and professional firms with Canon’s advanced MEAP enabled imageRUNNER line of multifunction printers (MFPs).
Representing a new generation of embedded solutions for law firms, Equitrac’s embedded solution takes advantage of the Canon Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform (MEAP), maximizing cost recovery for legal and professional users through direct front-panel access to Equitrac Professional 5’s industry-leading print, copy, scan and fax tracking capabilities, including Follow-You Printing and Secure Document Release.
The new front-panel implementation of the popular Equitrac Professional 5 solution on Canon MEAP enabled imageRUNNER devices now lets any walk-up user easily capture color and other detailed document attributes through a familiar touch-screen user interface and QWERTY keyboard on the Canon front panel. Users can then identify and review all job details for prints, copies, scans or faxes prior to output, in a simplified and integrated user experience.
Equitrac Professional 5 supports efficient recovery of document, fax and phone expenses incurred on behalf of clients, while also providing legal IT administrators the detailed reports and analysis necessary for data-driven equipment procurement and deployment decisions. The embedded Equitrac client provides law firms with enhanced efficiencies in document output and device management, while helping them to control costs and minimize waste associated with print and copy output.
“Equitrac is taking full advantage of the powerful MEAP technology to build a value-added solution for imageRUNNER MFPs that gives legal and professional users improved document security, cost reduction and increased end-user convenience,” said Dennis Amorosano, director and general manager, Solutions Business Development Division, Canon U.S.A., Inc.
“Equitrac is pleased to provide our growing legal and professional customer base with the first of this new generation of embedded solutions for imageRUNNER devices, fully integrated with Canon’s advanced MEAP technology,” said Michael Rich, CEO, Equitrac. “We know our customers will be delighted with the convenience and productivity enhancements they experience through Canon front-panel access to Equitrac’s intelligent cost recovery and print management solutions.”
