Nuance Communications and Seiko Epson today announced a worldwide strategic partnership to enhance the Epson customer experience by providing Nuance document imaging solutions through Epson distributors and resellers.
This new partnership brings together the low running costs, reduced intervention and environmental impact, and high reliability of Epson printers, with the ability to securely control and manage print and capture to enhance productivity while reducing operational expenses.
