In order to meet the growing demand for document workflow solutions from business customers, the two companies are renewing their strategic alliance.

In response to demand, Canon U.S.A. and Nuance Communications are rekindling their collaboration, revealing that Nuance’s eCopy ShareScan is now compatible with Canon’s newest imageRUNNER ADVANCE series, a development that has been made effective immediately.

Furthermore, Canon will be providing “enhanced support” for the Nuance Document Imaging eCopy Product, which includes PDF Pro Office and ShareScan.

“As we are committed to our customers and always aiming to offer integrated solutions with our Canon products like eCopy ShareScan that will help streamline workflow processes and boost business productivity, we are thrilled to embark on this continued journey with Nuance Document Imaging,” says Toyotsugu Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Our dealers and service providers will now have access to top-notch support for these solutions directly through Canon for the latest imageRUNNER ADVANCE series.”

According to Canon U.S.A., “eCopy has been designed to make it easier for employees to access critical document processes. Whether interfacing directly with other organizations, or collaborating internally, employees can leverage Canon solutions to access paper in the office, on smartphones, or on tablets to capture data whenever and wherever they need it. Organizations that deploy Nuance Document Imaging solutions can address strategic workflow challenges while enhancing document security and overall productivity.”

Canon will also be offering full support for eCopy PDF Pro Office, which delivers a range of PDF features as well as advanced optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities. The solution is designed to create, view, convert, edit, and collaborate with industry standard PDF files. In addition to speech recognition capabilities, eCopy PDF Pro Office can connect to cloud storage document management systems, such as Box, to further automate workflow processes. This integration also helps expand the portfolio of solutions for information management, workflow, and collaboration to support today’s fast-paced and mobile workforce.
