EFI Integrates SendMe Software with Xerox WorkCentre Pro Multifunction Systems
Press release from the issuing company
FOSTER CITY, Calif.--May 9, 2005-- EFI, the world leader in digital imaging and print management solutions for commercial and enterprise printing, today announced the new integration of SendMe, the company's document capture and distribution solution, with Xerox WorkCentre Pro advanced multifunction systems. The joint solution brings superior productivity and greater return on investment to office environments, such as those in healthcare, insurance, financial, retail and legal markets.
Using SendMe and Xerox WorkCentre Pro systems, people can now scan a document, preview it using EFI's scanning kiosk and with the push of a button, transform critical hardcopy information into digital files that can be sent anywhere in the world, instantly. Customers can simultaneously send the documents to any number of e-mail addresses, fax machines/servers, or printers, or file them on a desktop, network or document management systems, such as Xerox DocuShare(TM) enterprise content management (ECM) software. Combining SendMe with a document management system enhances productivity by accelerating and simplifying the inclusion of meta-data, giving the newly scanned document context within the corporation's existing document workflow.
SendMe users scan pages in full color, grayscale or black-and-white, and preview the digital files as thumbnails or full-page images in PDF, TIFF or JPEG format using a large, intuitive touch-screen interface. Documents are immediately available via e-mail, ftp, online repository or through a fax server. Additionally, the delivery capabilities of SendMe offer significant cost savings compared to the traditional delivery methods, overnight service, faxing, and postal mail.
"This new integration continues the long-standing EFI and Xerox collaboration that delivers great results for end user customers," said Frank Mallozzi, vice president, worldwide sales and marketing, EFI. "The SendMe/WorkCentre Pro integration delivers what high- and mid-volume office customers need to keep a competitive edge in today's business world, greater efficiencies to manage and share the exorbitance of paper documents."
SendMe streamlines every phase of electronic paper distribution with enhanced productivity, touch-screen ease, Internet speed and the power and versatility of advanced digital technology. SendMe seamlessly integrates into any document management system and workflow, works with any scanning engine or destination, and allows user interface customization with API scripting and an easy-to-use administrator's application.
