Westbrook Technologies Announces eCopy ShareScan and Kofax Ascent Capture Options for Fortis SE

BRANFORD, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 17, 2005 -- Westbrook Technologies, a leader in document management software, today announced the addition of two new options to the powerful Fortis SE configuration, eCopy ShareScan and Kofax Ascent Capture. Both options will be available to customers this month.

Fortis SE is designed specifically for companies that require the power and scalability of the flagship Fortis software at a competitive price position. Fortis SE provides a rich feature set designed for Web-based document management initiatives. The software is an ideal entry point for smaller user communities who want to gradually move into the full Fortis offering from Westbrook Technologies.

With Fortis SE for eCopy ShareScan, the gap is bridged between paper and digital workflows with a simple touch of a button. Users of a Canon multifunctional device with an ImageRunner can capture documents with ShareScan and send them to a Fortis database or in-basket in one fluid process. Fortis SE for ShareScan leverages the open architecture of Fortis to provide a seamless link between the scanning device and Fortis.

Fortis SE for Kofax Ascent Capture combines the capturing ability of Ascent Capture with the comprehensive document management capabilities of Fortis SE. This integration allows organizations to use Fortis SE exclusively as their document management system while handling all capture aspects with Ascent Capture. Indirectly, this integration allows Fortis to leverage all the benefits of Ascent Capture, namely mark-sense recognition, ICR, auto-polling, enhanced bar code recognition, VirtualReScan, TWAIN scanning, network scanning and much more.

Mitchell Hallock, Westbrook Technologies' Marketing Director, said, "Fortis SE for eCopy ShareScan and Kofax Ascent Capture will join other fantastic options like Audit Trail, QuickFind, Data Entry Assistant and Update Assistant to deliver an all-inclusive document management solution to our customers around the world."
