Konica Minolta to Market Extension for Captaris RightFax
RAMSEY, NJ and BELLEVUE, WA - Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. and Captaris, Inc., a leading provider of software products that automate document-centric business processes, announced the launch of the Konica Minolta Extension for Captaris RightFax. This integration between RightFax and Konica Minolta multifunction products (MFPs) harnesses the scanning and printing power of the Konica Minolta MFP and the network fax power of RightFax. The Konica Minolta Extension will provide significant cost reductions and productivity gains to businesses by enabling fast and easy integration of enterprise fax, document capture and delivery capabilities with the same MFP devices used daily for printing, scanning and copying.
Jointly developed by Captaris, Inc. and Konica Minolta Business Technologies, the Konica Minolta Extension for RightFax is an optional enhancement for the Konica Minolta bizhub C250, C300, C351, C352, and C450 color MFPs. Through tight integration with the RightFax MFP Module, it provides access to powerful RightFax server and electronic document delivery features directly from the Konica Minolta MFP control panel. This solution provides customers with the ability to use the control panel of the MFP to send and receive network fax jobs managed by the RightFax Server.
"RightFax is the global market leader in fax servers because of its unique combination of technology, usability, reliability and scalability, all backed by a financially strong public company," said Kevin P. Kern, Vice President, Product Planning and Development, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Inc. "The Konica Minolta Extension for RightFax integrates Konica Minolta MFPs more tightly with RightFax, allowing Konica Minolta to compete more effectively in the fax segment and will allow us to gain market penetration in important business segments."
"We are very pleased to have this strong connection to the outstanding Konica Minolta product line," said Jurgen Stephan, Vice President of Global Marketing for Captaris. "The Konica Minolta Extension reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by making it easier to replace standalone fax machines, and it rapidly integrates RightFax with MFPs and other business applications to maximize investments."
