Scan to DMS, Integration With mindSHIFT Desktop Hosting, Windows 7 and Snow Leopard Support Highlight Release

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 3, 2010) - LEGALTECH -- Equitrac Corporation, a global provider of award-winning print management and cost recovery solutions, announced the upcoming availability of the latest version of Equitrac Professional® 5. New enhancements to the market leading solution include the ability to scan documents directly into a document management system, integration with mindSHIFT® desktop hosting, and support for the newest operating systems, Windows 7 and Apple Snow Leopard.

Equitrac Professional 5 can be seen at the Equitrac Booth #326 at LegalTech® today at the Hilton, New York.

Key new features of Equitrac Professional version 5.3 include:

-- Scan to DMS -- The Equitrac Document Capture scan capabilities have been 
   expanded to let users scan files directly into a document management 
   system (DMS). This service is administered at the server level, 
   simplifies the scanning process for the user and provides a seamless 
   integration with the cost recovery workflow.

-- Integration with mindSHIFT Desktop Hosting Service -- Equitrac 
   Professional 5 is seamlessly integrated into mindSHIFT's desktop hosting 
   service, allowing mindSHIFT clients to access the full benefits of its 
   print management and cost recovery functions. 

-- Expanded Operating System Support -- Equitrac Professional 5 introduces 
   client support for the latest desktop operating systems, Windows 7 and 
   Apple Snow Leopard. Versions supported are Windows 7 Professional, 
   Enterprise and Ultimate in both 32 and 64 bit versions along with 
   Macintosh OS 10.6. 

-- Document Routing Client for Direct IP Printing -- Equitrac Professional 
   5 now provides Document Routing Client (DRC) support for both Mac and 
   Windows workstations. This feature provides advanced print management 
   features such as print rules and Follow-You Printing® with direct IP 
   printing from the desktop, without needing to send jobs through a 
   Windows based print server. This simplifies deployment for firms who do 
   not have a dedicated print server, giving them benefits of the 
   convenient and efficient tracking of all print jobs by employing rules 
   and routing, as well as Follow-You Printing.

-- Improved Reporting Capabilities -- Equitrac Professional 5 includes an 
   updated Crystal Reports engine and viewer for web reports. Enhancements 
   include quicker and easier navigation controls, a group view pane and 
   the ability to isolate and export specific group data. 

"The new Scan to DMS function of this latest release of Equitrac Professional 5 is going to make a big impact for our customers," said Noel O'Dwyer, vice president of marketing and strategic alliances, Equitrac Corporation. "The majority of our professional services customers have told us that document scanning is one of their primary concerns. The Scan to DMS capabilities will simplify the workflow, reduce software costs and ensure all documents are stored in their proper location. Firms should see measurable results in costs savings and increased productivity very quickly from this feature."
