Ikon Announces Digital Scan-to-File Service for Legal Industry
Tuesday, January 30, 2001
Valley Forge, Pennsylvania—January 29 , 2001—IKON Office Solutions (NYSE: IKN) today announced its new digital scan-to-file services for the legal community that are designed to promote greater efficiency in managing the documents associated with complex litigation. The announcement coincides with this week's LegalTech NY 2001 exposition and conference, where IKON will showcase its new scan-to-file services. "IKON's 90-plus legal document services locations across the country will be using the scan-to-file services' high-quality imaging technology to transform paper documents into digital images, resulting in secure electronic records that can be organized and accessed with ease," said Jack Conway, Vice President of Outsourcing for IKON Office Solutions. "Our legal customers will benefit greatly from IKON's ability to capture and move images to CD-ROM, delivering improved workflow efficiency and increased productivity." Through its scan-to-file services, IKON scans original paper documents to create digital images, digitally numbers the images and produces high-quality paper copies through an integrated, seamless workflow process. Unlike alternative imaging solutions, IKON's scan-to-file services incorporate a multifunction copier/printer/scanner device and IKON-created software to capture images directly from original documents, whether single-sided or duplex, of any size. Because IKON's scan-to-file services eliminate the need to photocopy an original document to create a standard-size copy prior to scanning, they enable faster conversion and controlled costs for IKON's customers. IKON can deliver the captured images to customers either on CD-ROMs or via the Virtual File Room™, IKON's Web-based data repository and litigation document management solution.
