Konica Minolta Business Solutions has announced the availability of eCopy ShareScan for integrated Konica Minolta multifunctional printers through bizhub Extended Solution Technology (bEST) developer support program.
The company said that the new document imaging software, available via the bEST program, enables customers to use eCopy ShareScan without any additional hardware at the company’s bizhub MFP. Customers can access eCopy ShareScan from the bizhub MFP touch screen, providing businesses with workflow efficiency by converting paper documents into digital files.
According to Konica Minolta, the eCopy offering transforms full-colour or black and white documents into electronic images and helps speed information exchange with its support of scan-to-email, fax, folder, desktop or printer functions, and content management and collaboration software such as EMC Documentum and Microsoft SharePoint.
The new software offering enables IT administrators to manage document scanning functionality from a central location. Customers can choose from two configurations to the integration platform – eCopy ShareScan Essentials or eCopy ShareScan Suite, the company said.
The company said eCopy ShareScan for integrated MFPs eliminates the need for additional hardware at the bizhub MFP. In addition, it enables IT administrators to manage the scanning functions at multiple remote devices, configure connector profiles and deploy changes all from a single administrative console.
Kevin Kern, senior vice president of marketing at Konica Minolta Business Solutions USA, said: With these integrated applications, businesses will not only achieve improved operational efficiency, but also the cost benefits of a streamlined workflow, and yet another reason to count on Konica Minolta.
