AIIM, Booth #2137, Jacob Javits Center, NY—March 10, 2004—eCopy, Inc., an innovative provider of document distribution and integration solutions, today announced support for the imageRUNNER C3100 and C6800 with the eCopy Suite of products. The eCopy-enabled C6800, marketed for the high-volume corporate environment, and the C3100, targeted for the smaller office, offer users the ability to seamlessly integrate color paper documents into their electronic workflows. The eCopy Suite enables users to scan and e-mail, fax, and store hard copy documents, whether they are black & white or color, right from their digital copiers or scanner.
“Overall, we are seeing more and more acceptance of color in the office from our customers,” said Tim Corkery, senior vice president of worldwide sales for eCopy, Inc. “With Canon’s latest imageRUNNER offerings, we are looking forward to fulfilling the demand for merging color and black & white paper documents into business processes and electronic workflows.”
The eCopy Suite is comprised of the following:
eCopy ScanStation: A small touch screen that attaches easily to a Canon imageRUNNER.
eCopy ShareScan: Runs on the eCopy ScanStation, enabling users to capture a scanned image and distribute the image via e-mail, fax, or to the desktop. Additionally, the image can be dynamically integrated with any enterprise application using eCopy Connectors. A “connector” is a dynamic link between the copier or scanner and a backend application.
eCopy Desktop: A document imaging application that can process documents. Users can save electronic copies of the scanned paper documents, mark them up using annotation tools (stamp, highlight, add text, underline, etc.), convert the image using OCR, and then mail, fax, or save the document in an enterprise application.
Also included is eCopys Xpert Compression Technology. eCopy Xpert Compression analyzes a document and identifies the content. It then applies the most appropriate compression for that type of information, resulting in the best possible reproduction of the original, either printed or on-screen. eCopy Xpert Compression typically reduces scanned color documents by over 100x, resulting in files that can easily be transmitted across a network, digitally stored, and printed with superb text and image quality.
“eCopy’s support for the imageRUNNER C3100 and C6800 rounds out the eCopy availability on the entire line of Canon imageRUNNERS,” said Dennis Amorosano, director and general manager, Integrated Solutions Division, Canon U.S.A. “With eCopy, Canon customers can add an advanced level of integration to their MFP investment.”
