Konica Minolta adds powerful scan workflows functionality to Dispatcher Paragon print management solution

Langenhagen, Germany | 17 January 2023

Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe today announced that its Dispatcher Paragon print management solution is now available with powerful core scanning capabilities, which allow an easy and seamless interaction with all popular cloud storage applications and OCR options. The features come from the proven Dispatcher Phoenix application, which was developed in-house by Konica Minolta and supports organisations with workflows solution for automating document processing.

Dispatcher Paragon provides central accounting of all print, copy and scan operations, with a range of tools that allow organisations to improve workflows and increase employee productivity – all of which ultimately helps lower print-related costs while at the same time maximising document security.
The newly added scan functionality enables scanned documents to be stored in numerous cloud repositories such as Scan-to-OneDrive (Business), Scan-to-SharePoint (Online), Scan-to-GoogleDrive, Scan-to-Dropbox and many more. This is particularly helpful in light of the rise of hybrid working, as applications such as Microsoft 365, for example, allow employees to access documents from anywhere and collaborate with colleagues on projects.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) functionality allows key information to be extracted before documents can then automatically be renamed and routed directly to a specific delivery location. The required destination folder can be browsed, selected, or newly created directly from a MFD and workflows can be set to run automatically at a date/time of convenience. A kick-start of scanning is given by a full library of preconfigured scan workflows. Own workflows can be created intuitively and with ease via drag and drop.
The  powerful scanning capability is now available bundled with the on-premise version of Dispatcher Paragon and soon it will be also be offered with the cloud version of Dispatcher Paragon which provides a fully managed and hosted Software-as-a-Service.
