emFAST Inc.'s FACSys® Connector Verified Compatible With Canon's Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform (MEAP)

BRIDGEWATER, NEW JERSEY--(Marketwire - Nov. 16, 2010) - emFAST Inc., a pioneer in network fax messaging, today announced the verification of the FACSys® Connector with Canon's advanced Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform (MEAP) enabled imageRUNNER line of multifunction printers (MFP).

With the new FACSys Connector for Canon MEAP-enabled MFPs, these devices are augmented to act as document-to-digital conversion and routing portals that help your business process information more quickly and efficiently.

"Comprehensive two-way communication made possible by MEAP grants users unparalleled access to fax server and document-to-digital conversion and routing resources in a secure, productive and convenient manner."

"Offering seamless integration with the imageRUNNER user interface and convenient fax notification features, the FACSys Connector leverages the capabilities of Canon's robust MEAP platform, to deliver a combination of increased worker efficiency, hardware cost reductions and enhanced document security that is ideal in today's competitive business environment," said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A.
