Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Inc. (Konica Minolta) has announced a new release of its Dispatcher Phoenix family of document workflow automation product offerings, which include industry-specific versions for the education, health care, government, finance and legal markets. With the introduction of Dispatcher Phoenix 5.6, users will experience enhanced functionality and new features to help improve and maximize their business efficiencies.
The new array of product features and enhancements include:
Integrating directly into the Konica Minolta bizhub MFP control panel, Dispatcher Phoenix streamlines document scanning, indexing, processing and routing using a visually enhanced display. Especially useful for sharing files with teams securely and conveniently, Dispatcher Phoenix includes connectors to many content management systems and cloud storage solutions, such as SharePoint, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, FileAssist and others. Dispatcher Phoenix also offers a large variety of processes to suit any business need or vertical market requirement, follow-you print capabilities and iOS/Android apps for mobile users to access and submit files to their workflows.
- An automated Barcode Writer process, which provides an easy way to insert bar codes with labels directly onto documents and files. Dispatcher Phoenix can place bar codes and labels anywhere on the page, using static text, dynamic content from documents, numeric counters and much more.
- A new connector to Microsoft's popular OneDrive for Business cloud storage platform, which provides customers with a quick and secure way to scan, process and upload files to OneDrive for Business for future collaboration, access and sharing. Customers can now leverage the power of their bizhub MFPs by accessing their OneDrive for Business account directly at the bizhub touchscreen. For a hands-free solution, files can also be automatically processed and stored in the correct OneDrive for Business directory as well.
- A Google Cloud Print input node. Now our users can print from their PCs, Chromebooks, phones or tablets using the Google Cloud Print service and send their files directly into Dispatcher Phoenix for seamless processing, routing and printing.
- SharePoint Connector enhancements, which include support for SharePoint Online, as well as new NTLM and Negotiate authentication mechanisms as part of SharePoint 2013 support.
