Brother International Corporation, a specialist in business printing and imaging systems, recently announced its integration with the OnTask workflow solutions platform from content-processing software company Accusoft. Businesses can now use OnTask-enabled Brother devices as a document workflow automation platform to help facilitate remote collaboration, improve visibility and tracking of critical documents, provide potential cost savings, and shorten turnaround times.

OnTask says its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model makes it simple and affordable for small- to mid-sized companies to start using easily - "within hours instead of months." Similarly, enterprise companies can scale and standardize their document processes across departments and seamlessly integrate with existing core systems. Unique to Brother, pre-packaged workflows will include document approvals, reviews, signatures, redlining, and online forms. Brother customers can create, execute and participate in document workflows either directly from their select Brother multi-functional device or scanner, or on their own desktop computer or mobile phone.  Brother Logo 1Brother

"Digital transformation sounds like something reserved for large enterprises, but truly every business needs to ensure that their document workflows are reaping the competitive benefits of digital, such as vastly improved efficiency and data security," says Dan Waldinger, Senior Director of B2B Marketing at Brother. "Through the integration of the OnTask software with select Brother devices, organizations big and small can unlock the transformative effects of document automation."

In addition to workflow improvements, the companies note that businesses that utilize OnTask from Brother can significantly upgrade their document security thanks to the platform's comprehensive suite of approval tools. All workflow records and transactions are maintained permanently on a secured cloud so supervisors and other authorized users will always have a bird's eye view of their data, which can also be exported anytime if needed via protected APIs. OnTask is SOC 2 and ESIGN Act compliant and can also be integrated with other existing data storage solutions. 

"Our intention is to meet organizations wherever they are on their journey to digital transformation," commented Megan Brooks, Director of Marketing at Accusoft. "We want companies to realize the benefits of document automation now, without needing to become completely paperless first. The ability to scan a document into a workflow gives you just that - this partnership essentially helps organizations automate most manual paper-based processes."

Brother announced earlier this year that it would create a series of strategic partnerships to extend their solutions portfolio to include a variety of integrated productivity tools. Announced this past April, OnTask is the latest addition to this group.

Access to the full suite of Brother services and solutions is offered exclusively through the Brother Authorized Partner Program (BAPP), as well as direct market resellers, dealers, and office superstore contract resellers.
