New collaboration paves the way for paperless offices

One-of-a-kind high-performance scanner allows audit-proof scan processes

Berlin, 26. June 2014. The OPEX Corporation (www.opex.com) is one of the leading international providers of high-performance scanning solutions. The company offers its customers a one-touch scanning solution. The product – the only one of its kind in the world – combines a mail extraction station with a high-performance scanner and intelligent image processing software. Collaboration with OpenLimit SignCubes AG (www.openlimit.com) now also allows the integration of qualified or advanced electronic signatures into the fully automated workflow, thereby enabling legally compliant scanning in accordance with TR RESISCAN.

“A faster scanner does not necessarily mean faster scanning”

As a result of the automated opening of mail, the single sheet and batch feeder, classification and sorting, is a measurable gain in time compared with scanning solutions used previously. “The most important time element in the case of traditional scanning is that of preparing the documents, i.e. making it possible to scan them in the first place. OPEX steps in here and eliminates most of this work”, explains Omar Sharaf, Business Development Manager at the OPEX Corporation. “A faster scanner therefore does not necessarily mean faster scanning. The OPEX products automate these time-consuming processes, thereby resulting in a time gain of fifty percent.” The complete document scanning solution promises a significant saving in human resources costs, as well as simplifying processes and therefore error rates.

Collaboration with OpenLimit allows replacement scanning in compliance with TR RESISCAN

In order to further improve the high standard of the equipment and meet the legal requirements for electronic archiving, the scanning expert is now collaborating with the experienced specialist in the field of legally compliant signature methods, OpenLimit SignCubes AG. This collaboration enables the integration of qualified or advanced electronic signatures into the scanning process. With the OpenLimit signature solution, document batches of any size can be signed automatically after entering a PIN just once. In this way, the origins and integrity of the electronic documents is guaranteed in accordance with the technical security measures required under TR RESISCAN, as well as the replacement scanning process supported.

For applications in the area of social insurance, it is also possible to realize the required sample audit – i.e. the comparison between the paper original and the scanned image – after the scanning process. The OpenLimit signature application components are already certified by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) in accordance with ISO/IEC Standard 15408 of the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation EAL 4+.

“We are very happy about the collaboration with OPEX and the integration of our signature solution into the unique high-performance scanner. It is crucial for all enterprise workflows that all process steps are automated as far as possible and executed in a seamless manner. This also applies to the legally required signing of electronically archived documents. OPEX provides its customers with a state-of-the-art complete solution”, says Matthias Luedtke, Sales Manager at OpenLimit about the two companies’ collaboration.
