"It broadens the use of our products to make them the heart of document management solutions in businesses of all sizes. Our products have scanning capabilities and we needed to provide a total solution including software. We selected PaperPort because it provides the full functionality our business users require.''

"PaperPort offers business users all of the tools necessary to organize and manage paper and digital documents through one intuitive user interface.

PaperPort Deluxe saves time, increases productivity With the help of PaperPort, the world's best-selling paper management software, digital documents are quickly and easily stored and accessed from a single location, saving time and increasing overall productivity. PaperPort is a key component in moving paper from desks and filing cabinets on to the desktop, where it can be shared, managed, organized and edited by users across the network. Real-Time, High-Speed Scan Technology With rated speeds from 20 copies-per- minute to75 prints/copies-per-minute respectively, the 7xxx series Konica products provide real-time, high-speed scan technology. This technology allows each page of a document to be automatically scanned and stored into memory virtually simultaneously, increasing reliability over time (due to fewer moving parts) while still offering the superior copy quality and productivity of "scan-once, print-many'' technology.
