Captaris Achieves Gold Partnership in HP Solutions Business Partner Program

BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Captaris, Inc. , a leading provider of software products that automate document-centric processes today announced it is recognized as an accredited Gold partner in the HP Solutions Business Partner program for Imaging and Printing. HP is among the world's largest IT companies with a portfolio that spans printing, personal computing, software, services and IT infrastructure.

The accreditation of Captaris and certification of RightFax 9.3 extends Captaris and HP's existing reseller and managed services agreements and sets Captaris RightFax apart as the only solution in the LANfax arena selected by HP to be resold globally. Captaris and HP have collaborated for more than a decade to provide customers consolidated, secure and reliable document delivery.

"Gold partner accreditation and the status as the global fax solution for HP is a significant opportunity for Captaris," said Mike Spacone, senior director of Business Development with Captaris. "We expect the collaboration to return real revenue impact."

The LANfax market is expanding on a worldwide scale and research predicts 33 percent of global fax server sales will be linked to MFP equipment by 2010. RightFax is the proven market leader in fax server and electronic delivery software with market share more than five times greater than the closest North American competitor (Davidson Consulting, 2006 Fax Server Report).

Partners in the HP Solutions Business Partner program are selected for geographical reach, business stability, professional services, and support capability. Through the HP Accreditation, Certification and Test program, HP qualifies a partner's design and development processes and tests integration with HP devices and software. Partners in the program must demonstrate consistent, high-quality delivery of specific solutions built on HP's software development kits and the HP Open Extensibility Platform.
