Web service-enabled copiers

Sharp Electronics Corp. of Mahwah, N.J., (www.sharpusa.com) has introduced a development platform for exposing its new copiers, scanners and multifunction devices as Web services. Demonstrated at the AIIM conference last spring, the Sharp Open Systems Architecture allows developers to integrate enterprise applications into Sharp network equipment.

With this approach, scanned images or invoices can be routed directly to document management or financial-management applications without going through the user's desktop PC first, according to Sharp associate director Vince Jannelli. The equipment is accessible through a network address and the Simple Object Access Protocol.
