LFConnector Integrates with eCopy to Add Document Imaging and Distribution Capabilities

Baton Rouge, LA – February 13, 2008 – Software Connections today announced support for eCopy ShareScan Essentials document imaging software, which helps organizations save time, reduce costs and improve business results by enabling any office worker to use a multifunction peripheral (MFP) or scanner to securely capture paper documents into electronic workflows.  Using eCopy's software developer kit (SDK), Software Connections has updated their LFConnector to work as a seamless integration for eCopy's ShareScan Essentials platform.  The LFConnector can be used to improve business workflows by allowing paper documents to be scanned directly to a Laserfiche® repository from any eCopy-enabled MFP or scanner.

eCopy ShareScan Essentials - also announced today, please see - provides an extensible document imaging platform that delivers a consistent user interface across disparate different MFP brands and scanners, making it easy for office workers to use and organizations to deploy and support.

"eCopy provides a document imaging software platform that delivers a common, easy-to-use interface across networked capture devices from all the top vendors," said John McLain, Vice President of Software Connections.  "By integrating with ShareScan, we can focus on customer workflow solutions without having to spend resources developing software to manage all the different document capture hardware platforms."

Using the LFConnector, paper documents can be scanned directly to a Laserfiche repository using any eCopy-enabled MFP or scanner.  The LFConnector acts as an interface between the eCopy ShareScan device and a Laserfiche document management system.  Once eCopy ShareScan is installed on the digital device, the LFConnector can be added to leverage existing office equipment as direct input mechanisms to any Laserfiche repository.

eCopy ShareScan is the market's most secure networked scanning application, providing authentication and encryption capabilities to safeguard intellectual capital and conform to compliance program requirements.  ShareScan Essentials includes one copy of eCopy Desktop™, personal productivity software to create, view, edit and combine PDF documents.

eCopy makes available SDKs for independent software vendors (ISVs) and corporate developers to build connectors for native integration from ShareScan Essentials or eCopy Desktop to their business applications.  ShareScan Essentials runs on Canon and Ricoh embedded MFP platforms as well as network-attached scanners. eCopy Desktop runs on Microsoft Windows software for PCs.

"Increasingly, organizations are looking for workgroup software that provides secure scan to file and scan to e-mail using Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Notes," said Bill Brikiatis, eCopy director of Corporate Marketing.  "At the same time, ISVs and corporate developers are looking to incorporate document imaging from MFPs or scanners into business applications.  ShareScan Essentials meets both needs.  It provides organizations with a cost-effective software solution for secure document imaging and developers with a cross-brand document imaging platform that insulates them from the need to become experts in developing software for MFPs or scanners."
