Nuance Expands Support for MFP Devices to Provide Forms Processing as a Standard Feature
BURLINGTON, Mass., November 30, 2010 - Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN), a leading provider of speech and imaging solutions, today announced eCopy® ShareScan® Suite 5, the new release of the world’s best-selling document scanning and workflow solution for networked multifunction printers (MFPs). eCopy ShareScan provides organizations with everything needed to automate their paper-to-digital workflows, letting office workers scan paper documents easily and securely using existing investments in network MFPs and scanners.
The new release greatly expands eCopy’s support for devices from leading MFP vendors, including Canon, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, and Xerox Corporation’s Extensible Interface Platform® technology. In addition, eCopy ScanStation delivers all the capabilities of eCopy ShareScan 5 to all TWAIN or ISIS-capable MFPs and scanning devices. eCopy ShareScan enables the rapid deployment and management of eCopy in mixed-fleet MFP environments, with versions that scale to meet the price/performance requirements for workgroups, departments and global enterprises.
“eCopy ShareScan 5 is an important upgrade - with features not found in other solutions - that makes scanning easier and more valuable,” said Brian Bissett, editor of The MFP Report. “The new release greatly expands users’ ability to reduce the cost of capturing and managing paper, including the ability now to tackle paper forms processing right from the MFP. Nuance also gives users the flexibility to quickly move documents where they are needed, whether that is a back-office application or directly to a user’s desktop.”
The product is the first MFP scanning product to include unlimited document and forms processing as a standard feature, letting office workers turn paper into digital information - as easily as making a copy. New to the product are eCopy Extenders, an open snap-in architecture that allows for advanced document processing to be added to eCopy ShareScan by Nuance, its partners or even customers. The new release extends eCopy ShareScan’s leadership in connecting MFPs to back-end applications through eCopy Connectors. Over 100 connectors are available for eCopy ShareScan from Nuance and its partners. These Connectors include Microsoft SharePoint, EMC Documentum, Therefore™, Document Mall ™ and Xerox DocuShare® Enterprise Content Management Platform.
eCopy ShareScan 5 also includes Personalized Scanning, a Nuance innovation that allows scanning menus to be tailored to specific individuals or workgroups, presenting them with the same personalized menu selections from any MFP that they access via the network. For example, the marketing department can have a “Process Sales Lead Form” selection, while a R&D vice president can have a “Convert to XML” and “Process Engineering Change Order” within her eCopy menu. Personalized Scanning is easily customized and managed within the eCopy ShareScan system.
eCopy ShareScan 5 is now available from Canon USA and Canon Europe Limited and will be available within 90 days from other members of Nuance’s global channel of MFP vendors, partners and dealers. eCopy ShareScan Suite (US $2995 per MFP) is the flagship version that includes unlimited document and forms processing, as well as eCopy Connectors to business software applications. eCopy ShareScan Office (US $1495 per MFP) is ideal for targeted workflow and office productivity, while eCopy ShareScan Elements (US $795 per MFP, 25 MFP license minimum) provides secure, auditable and synchronized scan to email and fax capabilities. All prices do not include required annual maintenance and support and other limitations may apply. Each eCopy ShareScan license includes one seat of eCopy PDF Pro Office.
