KYOCERA Partners With Square 9 Softworks
Tuesday, October 18, 2016
KYOCERA Document Solutions America and Square 9 Softworks have announced the introduction of Kyocera's Square 9 Connector.
This business application allows any HyPAS-enabled or capable Kyocera MFP to serve as a portal to the Square 9 GlobalSearch enterprise content management (ECM) system.
With Square 9 Connector, users can scan paper documents directly into existing Square 9 server workflows, as well as search and print archived documents directly from the MFP control panel.
"For both companies, the goal is to continually develop ways to simplify the day-to-day experience of managing documents," said Doug Cole, director of product marketing, KYOCERA Document Solutions America. "This app is a direct result of that shared vision."
Integration with Square 9's Data XChange allows index-field metadata to be entered quickly and easily from the MFP control panel — or through an external USB keyboard, which the app also supports. The priority display function puts each user's most frequently accessed archives at the top of the list, keeping search time to a minimum. The thumbnail preview feature allows documents to be identified at the MFP control panel before printing.
The application supports card authentication, enabling users to log in with a single swipe of their proximity cards, eliminating the need for manual entry while restricting user access, an important component of document security.
"This Square 9 Connector application makes both Kyocera MFPs and our ECM platform more powerful," said Ethan Voltolini, marketing director, Square 9 Softworks. "It's a win-win for our companies, but the biggest beneficiary is the user community."
Square 9 Connector is available through authorized Kyocera dealers at the manufacturer's suggested retail price of $750 for one device license.
