New Integrated Solution for Digitizing and Managing Large-Format
SCP and Practical Programs have joined together to produce
a solution for Scanning, Indexing and Managing Large Format documents.
(PRWEB) August 29, 2005 -- Organizations needing to guarantee
the absolute quality of scanned and copied colour images can now
also more effectively store, manage, access and electronically
mail those same graphics.
This capability follows the decision by German headquartered SCP
Software to interface its recently launched Colorado 2005 system
to the drawing and document management family of IT solutions developed
by Practical Programs of Australia. An interface that has been
internationally launched by both companies this week.
As a leading global supplier of professional software tools for
scanning, archiving, copying and printing large format documents
and files, SCP released its Colorado 2005 system in July of this
year. It notes that this tool is specifically targeted at organizations – such
as printers, scanning bureaux's, mapping companies and copy shops – that
need to guarantee the maximum quality of scanned and copied images,
particularly those in colour.
Having had a long term working partnership with Practical Programs,
SCP said that it was therefore a very logical move to link Colorado
to the Australian company's DvTDM (Data Viewer Total Document Management)
software products. These well proven applications, now in use in
some 31 countries, enable users to also highly effectively, and
largely automatically, store, manage retrieve and electronically
mail their high quality scanned data.
A spokesman for Practical Programs, CEO Mr Richard Bates, said
that the marriage of Colorado and DvTDM provides a very potent
combination of highly complementary document and drawing solutions. "The
interface that SCP has developed means that the two systems fit
together totally seamlessly as a fully integrated and user defined
scanning and management tool.
"Via Colorado, large-format documents can be directly scanned
into DvTDM. Users simply note what kind of identification they
need for documents and key parameters such as file names and storage
paths. The ensuing process is then automatic, ensuring a smooth,
easy and efficient workflow", Mr Bates said.
In annoncing their latest collaborative initiative, SCP and Practical
Programs pointed to a number of distinct advantages that, they
say, flow from efficient document management.
"A key benefit is that drawings can be quickly located and
are never lost, misplaced or misfiled. There is always strict version
control so that there is never any doubt 'who has got what' or
if all modifications and amendments have been incorporated.
The process of determining and controlling who has received drawings – and
what version – is also fully automated. Users can ensure
that all drawings have successfully passed through QA before distribution.
And any drawing's links to other references, templates and files
are fully protected should the latter be subject to modification
or deletion", the organizations say.
