CANON USA Adds Nuance eCopy PDF Pro Office to Select imageFORMULA Scanning Solutions

Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announced that it will bundle Nuance eCopy PDF Pro Office with select models of its imageFORMULA scanning products. Complementing Canon’s renowned imaging technology and reliability, eCopy PDF Pro Office supports 100 percent industry standard PDF and PDF/A files, and offers features that allow office workers to be more productive and efficient with PDF documents.

Available in the Canon imageFORMULA workgroup scanners that support Windows OS, Nuance eCopy PDF Pro Office provides a variety of features for users to create, edit and convert PDF files including unique conversion of PDF files into Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Corel WordPerfect documents that can save time versus re-typing.

“Canon is pleased to add the workflow enhancing capabilities of Nuance eCopy PDF Pro Office to the imageFORMULA portfolio of scanning solutions,” said Jim Rosetta, vice president and general manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A. “Businesses of every size can now get the flexibility of PDF files and paperless productivity with solutions that are fast, accurate and capable of working seamlessly with existing investments in content management systems.”

“Working with Canon, Nuance remains committed to delivering customers with the best PDF solution for business — with the right features and a price structure that allows everyone within an organization to take advantage of PDF.” said Robert Weideman, general manager and senior vice president of the Nuance Document Imaging Division.

Canon imageFORMULA Scanners with Nuance eCopy PDF Pro Office also offer:

  • Improved PDF & Paperless Productivity – The eCopy Visual Document Assembly feature makes it easy to combine existing Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents with scanned PDF documents. The FormTyper automatically turns a paper form into a fillable PDF form that can be completed online.
  • Web Integration – eCopy PDF Pro Office includes the Web PDF Toolbar, which lets users customize the way they interact with PDF files within Microsoft Internet Explorer, FireFox and Google Chrome Web browsers.
  • Smarter PDF Search – Searching one or more PDF files now becomes more useful and powerful with support for Search-and-Markup, which uses keywords to automatically highlight matches throughout the PDF document. Users can define custom patterns to search, making it possible to find information even when the exact text or number is not known.

imageFORMULA scanners featuring Copy PDF Pro Office will also be able to provide ‘scan-to’ connectivity to a wide range of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems, further facilitating their deployment in organizations investing in centralized and cloud-based document technologies like Microsoft SharePoint.
