ImageNow Interact for eCopy Optimises MFP Investments

25 March 2008

Perceptive Software, creator of ImageNow® enterprise document management, imaging and workflow software, today announced the release of ImageNow Interact® for eCopy.

ImageNow Interact for eCopy empowers users to electronically capture and distribute documents directly from any eCopy ShareScan-enabled multifunction product (MFP). Users of any skill level can now capture and distribute their business documents directly to a fully-integrated SAP, Oracle, Lawson or any other enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.

ImageNow Interact for eCopy provides organisations with the ability to simply and affordably integrate Perceptive Software’s enterprise document management solutions into existing eCopy investments. ImageNow optimises the use of eCopy multifunction products and provides unparalleled integration to core business applications in any business environment using patented ImageNow integration technology called LearnMode™. This integration method is embedded at the very centre of every implementation, allowing customers to build on their existing technology infrastructure when the time is right.

By maximizing the use of eCopy products with ImageNow Interact, organisations will reduce dependence on central processing departments by providing instant access to the documents they need at the time they are needed. Business processes can be image-enabled with the push of a button, eliminating the cost, risk and delay of traditional document capture and processing.


"Interact for eCopy represents incredible value to existing ImageNow customers that wish to capture their documents at the source, using their existing eCopy-enabled MFPs,” said Tom Aude, Perceptive Software senior product manager. "In addition, Interact for eCopy offers MFP users the ability to easily add robust ImageNow document management functionality to the enterprise,” added Aude.

The solution supports a broad range of models, providing a simple, non-programmatic approach for eCopy customers. The flexibility of Interact for eCopy enables users to perform a number of tasks, including the capture and distribution of business documents to a predefined ImageNow workflow process, or indexing those documents directly from a touch-screen user interface on the MFP.

In a retail environment, for example, ImageNow Interact for eCopy allows geographically dispersed environments to manage all location-driven information effectively and affordably. Each retail location equipped with an eCopy MFP can utilise ImageNow Interact to easily manage and deliver the documents they need at their own location, while simultaneously providing relevant documents and reports to corporate headquarters with a simple workflow or through the ERP system.

“ImageNow Interact for eCopy continues our strategy of putting ImageNow enterprise document management and workflow functionality into the context of where business users work,” said Darren Knipp, Perceptive Software director of product management. “This focus maximises user acceptance and leads to tangible benefits across the enterprise.”
