Press release from the issuing company

ITEX – LAS VEGAS – March 21, 2006 – EFI, the world leader in color digital print servers, superwide format printers and inks, and print management solutions, today launched EFI SendMe Version 3.5, its flagship product for digital color document capture, edit, and distribution. Specifically addressing the needs of high-volume office environments, SendMe is an ideal solution for industries such as financial services, insurance, healthcare, higher education and legal services. SendMe has achieved annual double-digit unit growth since its introduction in 2003 and has quickly established itself as the market leader. SendMe integrates industry-leading technologies in scanning, workflow, and optical character recognition (OCR) using OmniPage 15 from Nuance Communications, Inc., with Microsoft Office for a powerful “Scan to Microsoft Word” capability with page layout retention. In addition, nearly 65 connectivity modules, developed and fully supported by EFI, are included to enable interoperability with top third-party document management, cost recovery, and fax-imaging software packages such as Documentum Server, Documentum AX5, Captaris RightFax,Microsoft Sharepoint, and EFI NetConnect. The flexibility to print directly from a Blackberry, cell phone or other mobile device – even an iPod – to an MFP (multi-function peripheral) is another unrivalled new capability. EFI SendMe is also available from IKON Office Solutions, Inc., branded as “DocSend.” “After a lot of research, we chose DocSend, and everyone who uses it loves the document capture and distribution features, particularly the archiving and retrieval functions, and the synchronization with our other EFI solutions,” said Greg Greenwood, manager, Publication Center, San Joaquin Delta Community College. “We’ve realized great efficiencies and cost savings. The devices are constantly in use and in such high demand that we’re going to have to order more.” San Joaquin Delta Community College District, based in Stockton, Calif., educates 20,000 students and has deployed 25 DocSend devices, integrated with EFI Fiery color digital print servers and Digital StoreFront, EFI’s web-to-print platform. Availability Part of an extensive portfolio of integrated products for high-volume office environments from EFI, SendMe is available through certified EFI resellers and distributors.
