Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) and Notable Solutions, Inc. (NSi), a leading developer of transactional capture and workflow solutions, announced the immediate availability of NSi AutoStore 6.0 on Konica Minolta’s award-winning line of bizhub Multifunctional Products (MFPs - print, copy, fax, and scan all in one system). With this new version, Konica Minolta customers are able to use intelligent document workflow tools to capture and deliver paper and electronic documents via two new products included in the suite - NSi WebCapture and NSi Smarticket.
NSi AutoStore 6.0 enables users to conveniently capture documents directly from the control panel of bizhub MFPs, and deliver scanned documents directly into line-of-business-applications, as well as more than 32 enterprise content management and document management systems. NSi AutoStore automates document driven business processes for bizhub MFP users, to lower costs, improve operational efficiency and support compliance with local laws and regulations.
With NSi WebCapture, customers can now use the same AutoStore orchestrated workflows to move electronic documents from within a web browser, delivering wider, more mobile access to their business applications from virtually any location. NSi Smarticket makes the automation of repetitive paper-based tasks simple and easy. Using a web browser, managers can easily define a workflow for their team’s documents to travel via a simple wizard interface. Knowledge workers then use the resulting “smart” coversheet to automatically route documents. Whether in print or electronic format, the Smarticket coversheet contains the necessary information to successfully deliver business documents to the right place. Moreover, all confidential information is stored on the Smarticket server and not within the barcoded sheet, ensuring data security and adherence to company security policies.
"Our longstanding partnership with NSi enables more streamlined document handling including scanning, processing and delivery of electronic documents to Konica Minolta customers for overall productivity enhancement," said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. "Working with NSi, we ensure that customers can count on Konica Minolta to help them make cost-effective, intelligent document processing decisions throughout their entire organization."
NSi AutoStore 6.0 has earned certification in Konica Minolta’s bizhub Extended Solutions Technology (bEST) program. AutoStore captures paper and electronic documents from a copier, scanner, or printer, and then processes them and routes them into the user’s business system or application. An integral part of bizhub OP (Open Platform), the bEST program enables a seamless interface between bizhub MFPs and software applications residing on a PC or server.
“Earning the bEST Partner Certification for AutoStore 6.0 further solidifies our strong partnership with Konica Minolta and enables users to easily leverage AutoStore’s secure document capture capabilities for improved information sharing and responsiveness across their organization,” said Mike Morper, Vice President of Marketing at NSi. “Working together, NSi and Konica Minolta make it easier for businesses to remove the delays associated with critical business processes and use real-time information to gain a competitive advantage.”
