Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment and advanced document management solutions and services, today announced that Ademero Inc.’s Content Central Connector™ integration applet passed the Ricoh Developer Program’s (RiDP™) compatibility testing. Designed for the server- and browser-based software application, Content Central™, the Connector allows for easy capture of documents from a Ricoh multifunction product (MFP).
As a RiDP Premier Plus member, Ademero was given the opportunity to use Ricoh’s software development kit (SDK) to fully integrate select ESA-enabled Ricoh MFPs with its intuitive document management system via Ricoh’s sophisticated Embedded Software Architecture (ESA) platform.
“The Content Central Connector leverages the power of Ricoh MFPs to give our customers a quick method to route paper-based documents into our document management system,” said Manuel Montesino, director of product marketing, Ademero Inc. “After these documents have been captured, users can complete daily workflow in a completely digital environment. The RiDP program facilitated a timely development cycle, providing all the tools we needed to complete the integration.”
Content Central Connector creates an environment within ESA-enabled Ricoh MFPs that converts scanned paper documents into fully-searchable PDFs, and stores them in a centralized repository that is accessible via a standard Web browser. Through Content Central, users can search, view and edit documents, which can be automatically routed for approval processing using the software’s advanced workflow engine.
“Ricoh customers have requested additional content management solutions built on our flexible ESA platform,” said Mark Minshull, vice president and chief technologist, Ricoh Americas Technology Center. “Ademero’s Content Central Connector will provide our mutual customers with a fully integrated document management solution capable of handling a multitude of business processes.”
