Buyers Lab Summer 2011 Awards recognized a handful of vendors for innovative document software solutions. Among “Pick” award winners are Nuance, Canon and Konica Minolta.
Canon uniFlow Serverless Security Print product, from Canon U.S.A., was named Outstanding Document Security Solution by BLI editors. The product ensures that sensitive documents are not available in the device’s output tray for anyone other than the user who sent the file by requiring users to tag each print job with a username/password, a PIN code or a proximity card ID. The user then enters that same authentication information at the MFP in order to release the job.
The unique feature about Canon’s secure print release product is that application is layered on top of the Canon print driver that’s loaded on the users PC, as opposed to similarly available products that require a separate server.
Konica Minolta was honored with a Summer 2011 “Pick” award for Outstanding Device/Print Management Suite for its PageScope Enterprise Suite 2.1 product. PageScope Enterprise Suite is a cost recovery solution that enables organizations to better manage print output, track costs and accounts, authenticate users and customize individual preferences at multiple MFPs.
The Suite is comprised of five inegrated modules: Net Care Device Manager, PageScope MyPrint Manager, PageScope Account Manager, PageScope Authentication Manager, and PageScope MyPanel Manager.
The Nuance Document Imaging division of Nuance Communications Inc. picked up “Pick” awards for three of its products. The Nuance eCopy ShareScan 5 was selected as Outstanding Document Capture/Routing Solution; Nuance eCopy PDF Pro Office 5 was named Outstanding PDF Creation Solution; and Nuance OmniPage 18 Professional was honored as Outstanding OCR Solution.
Other vendors receiving awards included Prism Software for its DocRecord 3.3 software, Square 9 Softworks for its SmartSearch 3.2 document management product, PaperCut Software for PaperCut MF V11.2 cost recovery solution, and Kofax for its Kofax VRS Elite 5 image processing solution.
