Document Management

Ricoh's eCabinet Stores Documents

Ricoh Silicon Valley Inc. has introduced its new eCabinet, a file management appliance targeted at small firms and department workgroups. The unit allows firms to capture, file and retrieve documents from a variety of sources, including e-mails, faxes, Web-content, photocopies, scans and PC documents. It combines the strength of an office network, the Internet, and thin-server technology to create an integrated system to manage both electronic and paper documents, explains Ricoh, based in Cupertino, Calif.

Once documents are stored in the databse, they can be searched and retrieved via eCabinet's Web user interface, based on content, date, owner or assigned keyword, it says. The system plugs into an office network and is built on open interfaces and protocols, says Ricoh.
