Ricoh Americas Corporation today announced that the IKON DocSend Server and DocumentMall plug-in developed by EFI passed the rigorous Ricoh Developer Program (RiDP) compatibility testing. As an RiDP Premier Plus member, EFI had access to Ricoh’s Embedded Software Architecture (ESA) platform to develop these solutions. Nearly all of Ricoh’s MFP and printer lines manufactured after the fall of 2004, according to the company, have the potential to run ESA.
Engineered for paper-intensive environments like financial services, insurance, healthcare, higher education and legal services, IKON DocSend Server converts paper documents into digital files – Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or Adobe PDF formats. The software employs optical character recognition (OCR) capability.
In addition, IKON DocSend Server users have a DocumentMall plug-in option to store, manage and share files through the Internet. With this plug-in, user login credentials are matched against the DocumentMall server to protect sensitive documents. Additionally, lists of DocumentMall sites are available to users, as configured by the administrator.
