Toshiba America Business Solutions and Nuance Communications, Inc. today announce a new multi-year strategic partnership to enhance Toshiba’s solutions portfolio. The agreement allows Toshiba to sell and distribute Nuance’s AutoStore and Equitrac document solutions through its independent dealer network and Toshiba Business Solutions direct sales operations throughout the United States and Latin America.
The Nuance/Toshiba collaboration will enable current and future e-STUDIO™ multifunction products (MFPs) to offer front panel integration with the two flagship Nuance offerings providing Toshiba customers with unparalleled productivity, efficiency and security.
“At Toshiba, our number one focus is providing customers with innovative document solutions that improve workflow, manage output and help them operate more efficiently and securely,” said Bill Melo, chief marketing executive at Toshiba America Business Solutions. “Partnering with Nuance allows us to better address the unique security and compliance needs of customers.”
Nuance’s industry leading print and capture solutions available to Toshiba dealers and customers include:
AutoStore is best suited for business processes wherein participants submit documents and data into a predefined workflow. AutoStore provides a unique experience designed with a responsive and intuitive interface for speed in capturing critical document information with as little interaction as possible using real-time connections to business systems for rapid and error free processing.
Equitrac® Office gives businesses the flexibility to let users print what they need and when they need it, while reducing the costs and complexities of deploying a print infrastructure. It is the most intelligent way to print – reducing costs, making printing secure and increasing user satisfaction. With Hybrid Print Control™, Equitrac Office delivers organizational versatility and control, and reduces IT complexities by removing dependencies on print servers, print drivers and complex print fleets—all while managing every printed page in an organization. As user requirements for printing change and IT infrastructure evolves, Equitrac Office lets you easily adapt to these changes with a unique choice of how to deploy printing – using print servers, direct IP printing or a hybrid model that includes both. This allows you to tailor your print environment according to the specific needs of your users and business.
“Toshiba has one of the strongest and most devoted dealer networks in the industry whose strengths in workflow security and vertical market expertise align nicely with Nuance’s own focus areas and industry leadership in print and capture software solutions,” said Chris Strammiello, vice president of global alliances & strategic marketing, Nuance Document Imaging. “Together, we can provide tremendous strategic guidance and insight to organizations looking to improve business performance by enhancing productivity, efficiency and security.”
