eCopy Launches Document Management Tools for Education

Software developer eCopy this week debuted a new line of document imaging and management solutions targeted toward education. The line includes three suites designed to automate document workflows, reduce paper waste, and integrate with systems common in colleges, universities, and K-12 schools, including popular multifunction printers and network scanners.

Included in the lineup are three products: eCopy Desktop, ShareScan Essentials, and ShareScan Suite.

eCopy Desktop is a piece of software that allows users to scan from MFPs and network scanners and convert documents to PDFs. It also includes functions for editing and securing documents and can combine electronic and paper documents into a single PDF.

ShareScan Essentials offers similar functionality but is designed for workgroup productivity. It can also scan to e-mail, fax, network folders, and eCopy Desktop.

ShareScan Suite is a higher end document scanning and management solution offering integration with content management systems, collaboration tools, and various other enterprise and desktop administrative systems. Offering all of the functionality of the other two applications, ShareScan Suite is also designed to support Microsoft-centric environments, including integration with Active Directory, SharePoint, Access, SQL Server, and other components.

eCopy Desktop sells for $495 for a five-user license. eCopy ShareScan Essentials sells for $1,695 and includes one eCopy Desktop license. eCopy ShareScan Suite runs $2,995 and also includes a 10-user eCopy Desktop license. All of the software supports Windows only. Evaluation versions are also available.
