PANASONIC ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR EMC CLOUD-BASED SCANNING APPLICATION
EMC Captiva Cloud Toolkit Streamlines Image Acquisition
Secaucus, NJ, January 14, 2013 – Panasonic, a provider of industry leading document imaging and scanner solutions, announced today compatibility with the EMC Captiva Cloud Toolkit for all current document scanners. By integrating this technology into Panasonic’s document scanners, customers can streamline image acquisition into web applications and business processes without the need to download additional software or Active X components.
The EMC Captiva Cloud Toolkit is a software development kit (SDK) that enables web applications to directly access Panasonic scanners without the need for downloads, launch of thick client software or limitations to a specific web browser. By adding the EMC Captiva Cloud functionality to its scanners, Panasonic ensures web applications developed with the EMC Captiva Cloud Toolkit will seamlessly drive scanning functionality and create a more streamlined and easy scan experience for users. Paper intensive business processes can have scan functionality easily integrated into web-based business applications, thus streamlining scan and image classification to improve and simplify business process efficiency.
“By integrating the EMC Captiva Cloud toolkit, Panasonic continues to deliver on its promise of bringing cutting edge technology to their ever-expanding portfolio,” says Chris McLaughlin, vice president of channels and alliances for the Information Intelligence Group division of EMC. “This alliance yields solid benefits for Panasonic scanner users, seamlessly incorporating scanning into business processes or services to deliver greater organizational efficiency.”
“At Panasonic we’re constantly looking for solutions that make our customer’s lives easier,” said Tony Bhandari, sector lead for the SMB team at Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. “Integrating EMC’s Captiva Cloud technology with our document scanners allows us to offer customers enhanced options for distributed capture solutions and provides end users an easier way to scan documents directly to business applications.”
