Toshiba Joins the eCopy Ready Program
Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. (TABS) and eCopy, Inc., announced that TABS has joined the eCopy Ready Manufacturers Program. By joining the program, TABS provides its e-STUDIO digital copier users with the option to use eCopy’s Open Platform software, which integrates with over 20 enterprise software applications, including EMC Documentum Enterprise Content Management Platform, Captaris RightFax, and Microsoft Outlook.
eCopy software transforms TABS’ e-STUDIO digital copiers into comprehensive paper management solutions. In addition to copying, printing, scanning and faxing, e-STUDIO users can now easily scan documents directly to their enterprise content management (ECM), Fax server, or e-mail system for more efficient business processes and improved document security.
“The eCopy Ready Program expands our market opportunities by enabling e-STUDIO systems to serve as a paper on-ramp to the long list of enterprise applications integrated with eCopy,” said Rick Taylor, senior vice president of Sales, Marketing and Business Operations of TABS. “It leverages our customers’ business applications by including paper-based information in the workflow and strengthens our position as a valuable partner in managing their complete document lifecycle.”
eCopy’s application connectors provide native integration and operate as clients of the enterprise application server. In this way, the connectors provide the same look and feel at the copier as the applications operating on the desktop, which reduces training and improves ease-of-use. It also extends authentication and user rights to protect against unauthorized users and provides a comprehensive audit trail, which is a critical requirement for organizations that use enterprise applications to manage Sarbanes-Oxley compliance information or other sensitive information.
“The digital copier is expanding beyond its traditional uses and is becoming a means for transforming paper-based information into electronic documents,” said Edward Schmid, president and CEO of eCopy. “Our software makes it much easier for Toshiba customers to bring paper-based information into their information lifecycle management systems and leverage the infrastructure investments they’ve made to better collaborate, speed workflow, and protect information.”
TABS is demonstrating eCopy ScanStation OP v3.0 with a Toshiba e-STUDIO4511 multifunction system at the eCopy Paper Connection Forum, April 5 – 8, a global summit for ISVs, digital copier and scanner manufacturers, dealers, VARs and system integrators being held in Miami, Fla.
