IKON Introduces New Server-Based Scanning Solution

Press release from the issuing company

Tuesday April 17 -- MALVERN, Pa.-- IKON Office Solutions, the world's largest independent channel for document management systems and services, today launched the new IKON DocAccel Express, an innovative and efficient solution to automate routine business processes. Designed to improve workplace efficiencies, IKON DocAccel Express is a server-based scanning solution that runs on many popular multifunctional product (MFP) models. It gives users the ability to scan and convert documents to fully searchable files using optical character recognition (OCR), and send documents to email, fax, folders and archives, all with a simple push of a button. "Too much paper in any organization can slow information exchange, take up valuable floor space with extra cabinets and add to the cost of filing, copying, paper handling and shipping," explains Bill Carpou, Vice President of Marketing for North America, IKON Office Solutions. "IKON DocAccel Express is a terrific solution for environments that want to better leverage their equipment to reduce paper and automate business processes, but may not require the full functionality of a complete document management system." Based on NSi's AutoStore Express 2.0, IKON DocAccel Express is scalable and offers flexible document management with server-based software. IKON DocAccel Express functions are accessed directly via the MFP control panel, and the software is licensed at the device level with no page count or click charges, making it a very affordable entry-level solution. IKON DocAccel Express is also highly scaleable; MFPs can be added to the network at any time and if more advanced functionality is needed, the system can easily be upgraded to IKON DocAccel, IKON's more fully-featured capture solution powered by AutoStore. IKON DocAccel Express workflow process designer manages capture workflows on the server, so workflows are automatically saved and available when upgrading to IKON DocAccel. IKON DocAccel Express runs on HP, Kyocera Mita, Ricoh (GlobalScan & SDK/J), Sharp (OSA), and Xerox (WorkCentre Pro) MFPs. Users can email via SMTP or Microsoft Exchange server. In addition, IKON DocAccel Express supports LAN Fax servers including Captaris RightFax and can release images to shared folders or FTP, personal computer, Microsoft SharePoint or IBM Lotus Domino servers. IKON DocAccel Express allows even the first time user to quickly and easily capture, process and route documents to multiple destinations from a single scan. IKON DocAccel Express is available for order throughout the United States and Canada, with a current retail license price of $600 per connected MFP. IKON DocAccel Express will be on display in the NSi booth #2223 at the AIIM/On Demand Conference and Expo held April 17 - 19 in the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
