KMWorld Cites Captaris Products for Innovation in Automating Business Processes

BELLEVUE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 26, 2007 -- Captaris, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAPA), a leading provider of software products that automate document-centric business processes, today announced that it has been selected by KMWorld magazine as one of the "100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management" for 2007.

"This list is designed to recognize companies that are leading the way in the knowledge economy," said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor. "Each of the companies on the list share common attributes, including participation in creating a market; redefining or enhancing a market; and demonstrating the capacity for customer-driven agile innovation."

A judging panel comprised of KMWorld's editorial staff, analysts, vendors and customers, identifies 100 companies each year that are leading the way in knowledge management through their customer-driven innovation and impact on the market. The year-long collaborative effort includes such criteria as the strategic value of products and/or services; successful customer deployments and ROI; management vision and ability to execute; and partnership and/or channel value. The complete list of companies will be published in the March issue of KMWorld.

"We thank the judges for their recognition of Captaris and our product suite -- RightFax, Workflow and Alchemy -- that is bridging the gap between paper documents and digital processes," said Dan Lucarini, senior director of marketing for Captaris. "Our products help companies in markets ranging from financial services to healthcare, government, retail and manufacturing to manage digital knowledge in a way that improves productivity."
