Samsung Electronics announced on Monday three new software packages for document imaging to make printing easier in a business world overflowing with different types of devices, file formats, and printing needs.
According to an announcement on Samsung's website, Equitrac -- both its Office and Express iterations -- is a print management software solution that allows businesses to print what they need regardless of location, routing the documents to nearby printing devices through a pull-printing system. Equitrac reduces IT complexities by removing dependencies on print servers, print drivers, and complex print fleets.
AutoStore is an electronic document capture solution that automatically recognizes and stores various types of user documents, including PDF files and information captured from multifunction printers (MFP), smartphones, copiers, and scanners.
SafeCom helps consolidate and standardise different types of printing jobs without installing additional print drivers. It can also reduce printing budgets by restricting printer access to only authenticated users.
The three document imaging solutions are the latest to come out of a strategic partnership that the South Korean tech giant inked with Nuance Communications last September to distribute document imaging solutions within Samsung's printing business. Nuance first built its relationship with Samsung by providing voice recognition capabilities that ship across a range of Samsung devices.
"Samsung is continuing to expand cooperation with the world's leading vendors to develop software offering specialised and customised solutions to improve workflow," said David Song, senior vice-president of Samsung's Printing Solutions Business.
"B2B customers will be able to purchase solutions and services optimised for their business directly with Samsung printing devices."
Nuance Communication is the world's leading output solution company. It is the largest imaging software vendor in the document/MFP space, with more than 58 percent market share, according to a 2015 report by IDC.
