eCopy™ Honored With "Pick of the Year" Award From Buyers Laboratory Inc.

eCopy ShareScan and eCopy Desktop Selected as "Outstanding Document Imaging Solution"

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - January 17, 2008) - eCopy, Inc., a leading provider of solutions that integrate paper documents into business software applications, has been honored for the second time with a "Pick of the Year" Award by Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI) for the "Outstanding Document Imaging Solution." After a thorough evaluation, eCopy ShareScan® and eCopy Desktop™ were found to be ahead of competitive vendor offerings in the document imaging category.

BLI, a leading independent office-equipment testing authority, honors solutions with its "Pick" awards, which are presented twice a year, after they undergo an in-depth review and rise above the competition in several key areas, including value, ease of use, ease of administration, hardware compatibility, software integration, security and support.

"eCopy provides an outstanding document imaging platform," said Timothy Captain, Associate Editor, BLI. "Users benefit from eCopy ShareScan because they can use this solution to eliminate filing cabinets by transforming their paper files into electronic documents that are integrated directly into their business applications. Software application providers appreciate it because they can develop a single connector to eCopy ShareScan and their customers can use any of the top MFP brands to capture documents directly to their application."

According to Bill Brikiatis, eCopy director of corporate marketing, "Once again, eCopy was found to be superior to the competition and was selected for the prestigious Buyers Laboratory 'Pick' award. BLI has looked closely at eCopy and found that our products provide a consistent, easy to use document imaging platform that works with capture devices from all the leading providers to unlock information in paper documents."

eCopy ShareScan document imaging software enables office workers to easily and securely transform paper documents into business value using infrastructure that is readily available in any office -- MFPs or scanners. With an eCopy software solution deployed, operational efficiency and business productivity improve dramatically. Energy expended in finding, copying, sorting, routing, filing and retrieving hardcopy documents can be put to better use. Time wasted chasing paper becomes time invested in meaningful work that contributes to bottom-line profitability.

ShareScan provides a fast, effective means for office workers to scan, distribute and store documents using existing business software systems, including e-mail, fax server, document management and collaborative systems. It directly connects more than 80 business applications, including Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint, Captaris RightFax and EMC Documentum, to all the leading office MFP and scanner brands.

Included with ShareScan is eCopy Desktop PC software, which enables users to transform paper documents into secure electronic PDF files that can be manipulated at the desktop, combined with other paper and electronic documents, shared with others, and stored on the user's PC or in network applications.

This announcement marks the second time recently that BLI has recognized eCopy's superior document imaging capabilities. In October 2007, BLI evaluated both eCopy ShareScan and eCopy Desktop in a document imaging solutions report and awarded the combined solution five stars, the highest grade awarded in the BLI evaluation process. eCopy ShareScan and eCopy Desktop scored exceptionally well in the categories of software integration, ease of use and security. BLI cited excellent software integration capabilities, enabling users to easily scan documents directly into business software from the MFP or scanner.
