Blueridge Technologies, announced that their OPTIX Document Management System now supports all TWAIN compliant scanners. The move dramatically increases the number of scanners supported by the cross-platform OPTIX Document Management System.
TWAIN is a scanning interface developed by a coalition of imaging hardware and software manufacturers. It addresses the need for consistent, easy integration of sophisticated input devices with image management programs such as OPTIX. Software programs that are written to support the TWAIN standard are capable of controlling any TWAIN compliant scanner.
"We made OPTIX compliant with the TWAIN standard for one very simple reason, because our customers asked us to," said Craig Landrum, Chief Technical Officer for Blueridge. "This development is especially significant for our customers who currently use desktop scanners for low-volume imaging. For them this development equates to expanded options. It means they can choose from a wider range of scanners."
Hewlett Packard is one of the leading manufacturers of TWAIN compliant scanners and a contributing member of the TWAIN Working Group. According to Brian Brown, ISV Program Manager for Hewlett Packard, "The combination of Hewlett Packard's ScanJets and the OPTIX Document Management System will enable companies with low-volume scan requirements to implement a quality document management solution that is both flexible and cost-effective."
Founded in 1988, Blueridge Technologies is one of the industry's oldest and most respected providers of electronic document management systems (EDMS). Long the leading industrial-strength document imaging and workflow system for Apple Macintosh computers, in 1994 OPTIX became the first electronic document management system to offer workflow, document imaging, document control, COLD (Computer Output to Laser Disk), and natural language text retrieval for both Windows and Macintosh workstations. Via the new OptixWEB interface, OPTIX also supports popular Web browsers, including Netscape Navigator, Internet Explorer from Microsoft, Mosaic, and all the client platforms these products support, including Windows, Macintosh, and UNIX workstations.
OPTIX systems begin in the range of $60,000 and include server software, client software for both Macintosh and Windows, installation, training, and support.
