HP is pleased with the opportunity to work with ARX, a key player in digital signature solutions. This co-initiative allowed us to effortlessly couple our feature-rich scanners with CoSign's comprehensive resolution to enhancing workflow within an ECM.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 5, 2008
HP, a cutting-edge global technology company, and ARX, a leading provider of digital signature (standard electronic signature) solutions, today announced the launch of a co-initiative designed to both assist companies migrating from paper to Enterprise Content Management Solutions (ECM), and help them avoid reintroduction of paper into workflow processes.
The challenge facing companies that transition from a paper-based system to an ECM, is the inability to make the change instantly, as many mission-critical documents and workflows throughout an organization need to remain in their paper or manual form for a transition period. However, paper documents can begin a migration to an ECM using scanners, without any interruption to mission critical processes. Yet, even in this scenario, paper is reintroduced into the workflow when documents require signatures during collaboration and approval processes.
The HP and ARX co-initiative utilizes HP document management scanners and eliminates the need to reintroduce paper documents into the workflow for signatures by featuring ARX's CoSign®, a digital signature solution that signs and seals electronic documents. CoSign closes the final gap in the paperless cycle by eliminating the need to reprint documents for signing. The co-initiative combines the high-end capabilities of HP's full-duplex, sheet-feed scanning, with CoSign's ability to sign scanned images and popular document formats including: Microsoft® Word, Excel®, Outlook®, Adobe® PDF, TIFF, AutoCAD®, InfoPath®, Lotus Forms, and many more).
According to John Marchioni, VP of Business Development, Americas, ARX, "Digital signatures are gaining momentum in the marketplace, and a co-initiative with a company like HP conveys that reality and further validates CoSign's ability to expedite business processes and reduce costs, while maintaining document integrity as business documents and processes are transformed from paper to an electronic form."
Von Hansen, Vice President and General Manager (Business Inkjet and Scanning, Imaging and Printing Group) for HP explained, "HP is pleased with the opportunity to work with ARX, a key player in digital signature solutions. This co-initiative allowed us to effortlessly couple our feature-rich scanners with CoSign's comprehensive resolution to enhancing workflow within an ECM."
HP and ARX will be holding a series of joint webinars for value-added resellers (VARs), detailing the solution that the co-initiative provides for companies migrating to electronic document management systems. The webinars will take place quarterly in 2008, starting Wednesday, March 12th 10AM CST.
