Nuance Debuts eCopy ShareScan Suite 5

Nuance Communications debuted the new release of its document scanning and workflow solution for networked multifunction printers (MFPs), eCopy ShareScan Suite 5.

eCopy’s support for devices from leading MFP vendors, including Canon, Konica Minolta,Ricoh (News - Alert), and Xerox Corporation’s Extensible Interface Platform technology is now supported with this new release. eCopy ScanStation also offers the capabilities of eCopy ShareScan 5 to all TWAIN or ISIS-capable MFPs and scanning devices, the company has stated.

eCopy ShareScan 5 is now available from Canon (News - Alert) USA and Canon Europe Limited and will be available within 90 days from other members of Nuance’s global channel of MFP vendors, partners and dealers, the company announced.

“eCopy ShareScan 5 is an important upgrade – with features not found in other solutions – that makes scanning easier and more valuable,” said Brian Bissett, editor of The MFP Report, in a press release. “The new release greatly expands users’ ability to reduce the cost of capturing and managing paper, including the ability now to tackle paper forms processing right from the MFP. Nuance (News  - Alert) also gives users the flexibility to quickly move documents.”

Allowing office workers turn paper into digital information - as easily as making a copy, the product is the first MFP scanning product to include unlimited document and forms processing as a standard feature. It also provides new features such as eCopy Extenders, an open snap-in architecture that allows for advanced document processing. In connecting MFP to back-end applications through eCopy Connectors, the new release extends eCopy ShareScan's leadership.
