Posted by Craig on December 18, 2017

Keeping the documents within your business properly organized and routed to the right place is undeniably important. And sometimes, it's a little more aspirational than practical. It can take a lot of time, effort and money to implement and maintain these processes. GlobalScan NX from Ricoh makes it easy and worthwhile.

Here's how GlobalScan NX will streamline your document management:


Ease of Use

Working GlobalScan NX into your workday couldn't be easier. Your workflows and features appear as big buttons right on your copier's screen. As you scan, you can combine pages from both the scanner bed and the feeder into the same document. Then, before you store or route your digital documents, you can view and zoom into image previews to be sure everything looks up to snuff!


Painless Administration

The IT team can breathe a sigh of relief. GlobalScan NX can centrally manage users, groups, devices and more and the configuration wizard can help with preset or custom-built workflows.

Convenient Organizing

When your documents are organized well, business runs so much smoother. With GlobalScan NX, you can add metadata with an external keyboard, as well as Bates label and watermark your pages. Combined with smart routing workflows, your documents will always be easy to find the first time.
