Print manager provider Equitrac and eCopy have released a single-terminal solution that slashes hardware needs required to track, manage and recover the costs of documents users scan, copy, print or fax.

New Solution Reduces Hardware Required to Track Prints and Scans Created using Multifunction Peripherals
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.–Equitrac Corporation and eCopy announced Equitrac Embedded for eCopy ScanStation OP. This new joint solution makes available Equitrac tracking and cost recovery functionality through the eCopy ScanStation OP, an ergonomically-designed touch screen, keyboard and PC that is used with multifunction peripherals (MFPs).
The joint solution eliminates the need for redundant hardware required for users to easily track, manage and recover the costs of documents they scan, copy, print or fax. With Equitrac Embedded technology, the eCopy ScanStation OP gains the cost recovery capabilities of the Equitrac solution.
This new single-terminal solution reduces customers’ hardware requirements, saves floor space, and simplifies use - for an overall reduction in total cost of ownership. eCopy ScanStation OP transforms any networked MFP into an information hub, enabling any office worker to easily incorporate digital copies of paper documents into enterprise applications such as enterprise content management, e-mail and fax server systems. Now, users can scan documents from an MFP directly into workflow and document management solutions using the full power of Equitrac’s intelligent cost recovery and print management software including features such as Secure Document Release and Follow-You printing.
“Equitrac believes that software-centric solutions like Equitrac Embedded for eCopy ScanStation OP are essential to providing the most efficient use of office equipment and effectively tracking and managing digital documents in the workplace,” said Equitrac CEO Michael Rich. “We are very pleased to be working with our partners at eCopy to respond to our customer’s requests for a solution that combines the market-leading benefits of eCopy’s document imaging and distribution system and Equitrac’s print management and cost recovery software.”

To meet this need, an increasing number of organizations are standardizing on eCopy as the operating platform for incorporating paper-based information into their enterprise applications. Through this joint solution, Equitrac users can more easily track, manage and recover expenses for the rapidly increasing number of documents that are scanned to back office applications.”
