OfficeDrop Teams With Nuance to Open Up PaperPort Anywhere API to Developers

Expands the Value of PaperPort Anywhere Cloud Service to Web Developers, Scanner & MFP Vendors, and Enables Customization by PaperPort Enterprise Customers

San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - OfficeDrop announced today an expansion to their partnership with Nuance to offer the PaperPort Anywhere API SDK (Software Developer Kit). Nuance PaperPort Anywhere, powered by OfficeDrop, is the first cloud service to focus on enabling sharing of both paper and digital files. The OfficeDrop & PaperPort Anywhere document management API provides web developers, as well as scanner, multifunction printer (MFP) and independent software vendors (ISVs) with a free and open way to connect their software and hardware products to cloud-based file storage and sharing. PaperPort Anywhere is integrated with Nuance PaperPort 14, the latest release of the world's most popular scanning and document management application for the PC.

For example, an MFP vendor can now implement scan-to-cloud capabilities, leveraging the document storage and sharing capabilities of PaperPort Anywhere. Or, a developer of human resources applications can use the PaperPort Anywhere API to add scan-to-cloud capabilities to their solution, taking advantage of PaperPort Anywhere's OCR and search indexing to make it possible for users to search and find scanned paper documents in the cloud.

"PaperPort Anywhere makes it easy to organize, access and share documents from any PC or mobile device, including the over 5 million seats of PaperPort for Windows deployed each year," said Chris Strammiello, General Manager for Desktop, Cloud and Mobile Solutions, Nuance Document Imaging Division. "The new SDK provides a fast and easy way for hardware, software and our enterprise customers to add scan-to-cloud and document sharing to their applications."

"Our partnership with Nuance proved our ability to build and scale our technology to meet the demands of millions of new and existing users each year. PaperPort Anywhere is compatible with the OfficeDrop API, making it seamless for developers to support both cloud platforms," said OfficeDrop CEO Prasad Thammineni. "The combination of OfficeDrop and Nuance provides developers with a rich environment to differentiate and add value to their solutions."

The OfficeDrop integration allows PaperPort Anywhere users to scan or sync files directly to the cloud, bringing the access-from-anywhere power of the cloud to anyone, anywhere. Developers can access the API documentation at the following link:
