eCopy™ Document Imaging Software Now Available for Océ MFP Customers

New Distribution Partnership Brings eCopy Document Imaging Software's Ease of Use, Security and Application Connector Portfolio to the Océ® MFP Platform

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - October 11, 2007) - eCopy, Inc., a leading provider of solutions that integrate paper documents into business software applications, and Océ, a global leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced an agreement enabling Océ North America's Corporate Printing Division to become a reseller of eCopy document imaging software. Océ will now offer eCopy ShareScan® software, allowing users to scan paper-based information easily and securely from an Océ multifunction peripheral (MFP) into any electronic workflow.

In addition to an extensive line of MFP offerings, Océ customers now will have access to the market's largest library of application Connectors, enabling organizations to scan documents directly from an Océ MFP to more than 75 enterprise business applications such as EMC Documentum Content Server, Captaris RightFax, FileNet, Interwoven, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft Outlook/Exchange.

"The need to move paper-based information quickly and easily into business workflows has become imperative for organizations looking to keep pace with e-business processes," said Tim Durant, General Manager at eCopy. "Océ has a strong reputation for providing document solutions tailored to specific customer requirements. Working with eCopy expands their ability to integrate scanning with the specific applications that are critical to their customers' electronic workflows."

eCopy ShareScan is available to Océ customers as an integral part of eCopy ScanStation™, which includes an ergonomically designed touch screen and keyboard that are easily connected to Océ MFPs. eCopy ScanStation will be immediately available as an option on the Océ cm2520, cm3521, cm4520, im6020 and im7520 models. Support for the im2330, im2830, im3530, im4530, im5530, im6030, im7230 and im8530 models is scheduled for late first quarter or early second quarter of next year.

To safeguard documents that are scanned using Océ devices, eCopy provides a range of security features. eCopy's document audit trail capabilities log the documents scanned, which users scanned the documents, when they were scanned and to whom they were distributed. For Department of Defense agencies, eCopy supports MFP scanning access using Common Access Cards (CACs), which enable users to identify themselves to network applications while they are at the Océ MFP and then be granted the ability to scan documents.

"As a result of our best of breed strategy, in which we work with top MFP manufacturers to obtain the best products possible, we are able to deliver digital document solutions designed to meet our customers' individual needs," said John Reilly, Vice President Product Development, Product Marketing and BPC Operations, Océ North America, Corporate Printing Division. "By adding eCopy's market-leading document imaging software to our portfolio, we deliver a complete solution which helps companies empower document owners through the best products available. The combination of eCopy and our MFPs allow users to securely scan documents themselves and have real-time integration to business applications so scanned information is immediately available for business workflows."

eCopy ShareScan, which won this year's "Best MFP Workflow Software Solution" award from market researcher BERTL, ships with a 10 user license of eCopy Desktop, PC software that enables users to proficiently capture, edit, share and store scanned documents in PDF form. Through an easy-to-use interface, eCopy Desktop offers advanced editing tools that include the ability to combine documents from both paper and digital sources.
