LONG BEACH, Calif., April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rocky Mountain Microfilm and Imaging (RMMI) is helping an online charter school with more than a dozen locations stay productive and organized with the help of EPSON® WorkForce® Pro document scanners. RMMI leverages EPSON WorkForce Pro GT-S50 scanners with ImageSilo® and PaperVision® Enterprise tools from Digitech Systems for cloud enterprise content management (ECM). This combined solution allows schools to quickly and easily capture data from documents, as well as index and process data, increasing productivity and overall efficiency.

Online charter school Guided Online Academic Learning (GOAL) Academy is comprised of multiple locations for administrators and teachers, and requires a solution to quickly and efficiently capture, maintain and share records in order to comply with state reporting requirements. Denver-based RMMI equipped GOAL Academy with Digitech Systems' software paired with Epson's scanners for a fast and reliable content management solution. GOAL Academy uses PaperVision to capture and send records directly to ImageSilo for secure management in the cloud, making it easy for each location to keep its information organized. Combined with the speed and reliability of Epson's WorkForce Pro GT-S50 scanner, each school is able to productively manage thousands of records, and has effectively reduced the amount of missing documents by 96 percent.

The EPSON WorkForce Pro GT-S50's simple one-touch operation allows users to scan a document, pre-populate forms and automatically index information by department, project or other criteria. Fast scan speeds and higher image quality accelerate the process of data input, and contribute to more reliable OCR performance. In addition, the scanner's affordable price and sleek desktop design made it an attractive addition to each school's office administration.

"Because our school is not traditional brick-and-mortar, it is crucial to have student records organized, easily maintained and shared," said Kim Coleman, director of student services/state registrar, GOAL Academy. "The PaperVision software paired with the speed and one-touch operation offered by the EPSON WorkForce Pro GT-S50 scanner has made a significant difference in our capability to manage records."

EPSON WorkForce Pro scanners, including the EPSON WorkForce Pro GT-S50 and WorkForce Pro GT-S80 are optimized for small- to medium-size businesses, or a single department within a larger organization.  They deliver versatile features that are easy to use, fast sheet-fed scanning (up to 80 ipm(1) with the GT-S80), robust paper handling, high-quality 600 dpi optical resolution, and high daily duty cycles.  They can also scan everything from business cards to rigid ID cards and documents up to 8.5 x 36 inches, all with simple one-touch operation.

Epson's exclusive ReadyScan® LED technology virtually eliminates having to wait for the scanner to warm up. Both scanners also feature a unique LCD on the front panel that shows users exactly which scan job/configuration has been selected.

"EPSON WorkForce Pro GT-S50 scanners are engineered to deliver the best balance of features, performance, reliability, and price for leading business ECM resellers such as Rocky Mountain Microfilm and Imaging," said Mark Pickard, senior product manager, Document Scanners, Epson America. "Epson is committed to offering solutions that are easy-to-use and increase proficiency, and we are pleased to hear RMMI's customers are benefiting from Epson."
