ScanSoft PaperPort Pro 9 Office Enables Distributed Capture from Multifunction and Digital Copier/Scanning Devices, Simplifies the Creation and Use of PDFs throughout the Enterprise

PEABODY, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 17, 2003– ScanSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSFT – News), a leading supplier of imaging, speech and language solutions, today announced integrated support for the Oracle Collaboration Suite within the newly released PaperPort Pro 9 Office from ScanSoft. The new capability is a continuation of the development, marketing and sales cooperation formed last year between the companies, with the goal to add document imaging and PDF support to Oracle Files, a feature of the Oracle Collaboration Suite.

Today’s business environment demands increased productivity through improved collaboration and decreased costs of administration. Oracle Collaboration Suite is the first product that leverages a relational database to offer a secure and reliable way to simplify communications and consolidate information with a suite of applications including file management, email, voicemail, calendaring and search capabilities. PaperPort Pro 9 Office is an efficient way for businesses to organize, find and share paper, PDF and digital documents within their Oracle systems. The new ScanSoft solution combines the efficiency of document management, the convenience of network scanning and the power of PDF creation, bringing a new level of productivity to organizations of any size.

«With PaperPort Pro Office, we see an ideal scanning solution for Oracle customers looking to bring their paper documents into the Oracle Collaboration Suite and truly unify all their information sources,» said Steve Levine, vice president, product marketing, Oracle Collaboration Suite. «With PaperPort’s ability to create PDF documents from all PC applications, PaperPort Pro Office and the Oracle Collaboration Suite provide an optimized environment for managing and archiving all types of content in a file format that ensures portability and long term viability.»

PaperPort Pro 9 Office is a new, professional business version of PaperPort Deluxe, which is the world’s most popular paper and document management application for the PC. By turning piles of paper into organized digital documents, PaperPort Pro Office provides organizations of all sizes with a more efficient way to work with scanned paper, PDF and digital files. PaperPort Pro Office replaces copying with scan-to-desktop capabilities; streamlines business processes with document collaboration and assembly features; and enables paperless document flow by connecting the PC desktop with backend enterprise systems.

The new release of PaperPort Pro 9 Office has native support for publishing, viewing and accessing documents managed with Oracle Files. It includes DesktopDelivery, a new feature that automatically creates PDF from scanned documents using networked multifunction and digital copier devices, and when used with Oracle Files allows organizations to support the capture of documents using existing investments in networked scanning devices. PaperPort Pro 9 Office also adds the ability to create PDF files from Microsoft Office and other PC applications, further facilitating the use of digital paper within the enterprise.

«ScanSoft and Oracle share a strategy of delivering solutions that help streamline business processes, improve worker productivity and extend the value of enterprise systems,» said Robert Weideman, chief marketing officer at ScanSoft. «By adding PaperPort Pro Office to an Oracle Collaboration Suite implementation, businesses are afforded a paper on-ramp for their content management systems, providing everything needed for users to scan, review and submit paper into the system using networked scanners and copiers.

PaperPort Pro 9 Office can also be used in conjunction with ScanSoft® OmniPage® Pro 12 Office, leveraging OmniPage’s highly-accurate optical character recognition to automatically create indexed PDF documents from paper and digital documents. The indexed PDF files automatically populate Oracle’s search services, with a level of accuracy that ensures that documents stored within the system can be retrieved when needed.
