Epson and Nuance partner to deliver ideal proposition for the channel

Epson and Nuance have confirmed the European element of a Global partnership bringing together market leading print and workflow management solutions from Nuance and the productivity, efficiency and ecological benefits of Epson multi-function business inkjet printers.   The partnership offers the channel a combined product and software solution that will deliver increased revenue opportunities for the channel, and unlock multiple benefits for the SMB and large corporate markets.

Leveraging the Nuance Equitrac and eCopy ShareScan solutions, the combined product and software solutions integrate easily into existing multi-brand IT product fleets.  Users can achieve better control over costs, increased document security and more efficient workflow processes, as well as reduced product maintenance and intervention requirements.

Darren Phelps, director of business imaging, Epson Europe, said: “Nuance products are often the product of choice for larger enterprises with extensive fleets of multi-brand devices.  Through this partnership Epson hopes to simplify the sale for our channel partners who are looking to expand their addressable markets, as well as better facilitate the transition from laser to business inkjet within the SMB and large corporate markets.”

Chris Strammiello, vice president alliances & strategic marketing for Nuance Communications, said: “Epson’s business inkjet MFPs and Nuance’s workflow solutions is a powerful combination for channel partners looking to provide  solutions that support strategic initiatives and improve productivity and efficiency for their customers. Further, through our partnership with Epson, it is now easier than ever for the channel to sell, deploy and support integrated solutions that drive meaningful business results.”
