Solution Allows Automated Tracking and Recovery of Document Scanning Costs
Thomson Elite, eCopy, Inc., and Billback Systems has released an integrated software solution that enables professional service firms to automate the cost recovery of paper document scanning. The iBillback Connector for eCopy ShareScan enables mutual customers to manage, report and recover costs associated with scanning documents on behalf of their clients. Thomson Elite will market the iBillback Connector in North America, where it currently markets Billback System’s iBillback cost management and recovery solution under the brand Elite Billback.
“For law firms, scanning is quickly replacing copying as the primary method of paper document distribution and management,” said Chris Poole, president and CEO of Thomson Elite. “As the importance of scanning grows within their firms, our customers are looking for a solution that will help them automatically capture the associated costs. With the integration of Elite Billback with the eCopy Suite, Thomson Elite now offers an easy-to-use solution that tracks the activity accounting of all scanned data.”
The eCopy Suite enables legal and other professional service firms to transform paper documents into information that is easily integrated into commonly used business applications. Using the eCopy products, firms can provide open access to scanning from a Canon digital copier or scanner that connects to the company’s e-mail, fax, document management system and other networked enterprise applications for a low-cost, easy, instantaneous distribution and management of digital copies of paper documents.
“Elite Billback is a powerful cost recovery and management solution that seamlessly manages day-to-day operational costs associated with providing client service,” said Noel O’Dwyer, eCopy director of strategic alliances. “The iBillback Connector for eCopy ShareScan automates the cost recovery process of scanned documents, eliminating the need for unnecessary administrative overhead. With this solution, cost recovery becomes a routine part of a firm’s daily document workflow.”
According to Eldean Ward, director, Billback Systems, “By partnering with eCopy, we’ve developed a comprehensive solution that ensures that all recoverable costs for scanned documents are captured, thereby allowing professional service firms to optimize their investments in office technology.”
