GlobalScan, also called GlobalScan Server Software, turns a Ricoh Multifunctional Product (MFP) into a network scanner, enabling the system to serve as an enterprise-wide digital document routing system. The user simply scans documents from the control panel of the MFP directly to e-mail or to a folder. In addition, the user can perform Optical Character Recognition (OCR), fax and Document/Content Management System functions via optional Frameworks.
This powerful, yet easy-to-use, paper document capture and distribution system integrates with an existing mail infrastructure to significantly boost workgroup productivity by combining e-mail functionality within an accessible copier platform. Most importantly, dramatic cost efficiencies are gained by speeding throughput of common business transactions that may otherwise require slower and more costly methods of communication.
