Nuance Print-Management and Document-Capture Software Now Available for Epson MFPs, Scanners
As Epson continues to shift its inkjet printers and All-in-Ones for business and office use, it reports that it’s entered into a global partnership with Nuance Communications under which Nuance document-imaging solutions – including Nuance Equitrac Office/Express, eCopy ShareScan, OmniPage, and Power PDF software – will now be available through Epson distributors and resellers.
The Nuance software is designed to securely control and manage print and scanned documents.
Under the partnership, Epson will sell and distribute Nuance eCopy ShareScan and Equitrac Office/Express software with Epson’s family of color inkjet MFPs including its high-speed Workforce Enterprise WF-C20590 and LX-10000/7000 series with Epson line-head inkjet-printing technology for small and mid-size business and corporate workgroups.
Epson will also integrate the Nuance OmniPage SDK into Epson scanning applications for better OCR (optical character recognition) accuracy when automating customers’ document workflows, and will also bundle Nuance Power PDF software with select lines of Epson document scanners.
Nuance solutions to be made available for Epson include:
For Workforce Enterprise/Pro printers:
Equitrac Office, which features Hybrid Print Control, and is said to reduce IT complexities by removing dependencies on print servers, print drivers, and complex print fleets, all while managing every printed page in an organization. Equitrac Office enables customers to choose how to deploy printing – using print servers, direct IP printing, or via a hybrid model that includes both.
Equitrac Express is said to give IT administrators the flexibility to enable students, faculty, and staff to print what they need and when they need it, wherever they are located. At the same time, it’s said to help reduce total print output and costs, and enables administrators to accurately allocate print costs, implement print quotas, and enable guest printing through pay-for-print.
eCopy ShareScan is document-capture software best suited for collaboration work streams where team members can contribute documents and content to the team for further review. By using the MFP within the workgroup’s area, eCopy is said to quickly and simply guides workgroup members through the process of properly scanning and capturing documents. This solution will also be made available with Epson document scanners.
For Epson document scanners:
The OmniPage Capture SDK is said to be the world’s most accurate OCR technology. It provides developers tools to add imaging, OCR, and PDF creation and conversion capabilities into applications. It also provides barcode recognition technology, intelligent character recognition, zonal recognition, and more.
Power PDF software is said to make it easy for businesses to gain control over PDF workflows with the ability to create, convert, edit, assemble, and securely share PDF files. Power PDF is said to feature the richest set of capabilities for collaborating and securely sharing PDF files with colleagues and customers. The software provides tools needed to annotate, mark up, sign, secure, redact, and compress PDFs, and create and work with PDF forms, making it easy to edit and publish PDF files. Users can convert files from Microsoft Word to PDF, and from PDF to Microsoft Word “with extraordinary compatibility, accuracy and reliability.”
