FAIRFIELD, N.J. – June 20, 2013 – KYOCERA Document Solutions America, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, today announced the release of KYOCERA HomePOINT, the latest in a comprehensive list of Kyocera-developed business applications designed to save time and boost productivity in the workplace. Kyocera designed HomePOINT to leverage an organizations existing IT infrastructure.

Without any middleware or add-ons, KYOCERA HomePOINT establishes a direct link from a Kyocera MFP to the individual user’s Active Directory account. It allows users to scan documents directly to—and print documents directly from—their existing network home folders. Plus, it makes it easy to browse through their folders/sub-folders and create new folders without leaving the MFP. This saves the user the extra step of returning to their PC or workstation to move the scanned document to its proper place.

“Today’s workplaces are growing and so too are their IT infrastructures, said Peter Hendrick, vice president, marketing for KYOCERA Document Solutions America. “KYOCERA HomePOINT lets users access their individual home folders from any MFP in the building. Users can scan-to , print from and even create folders/sub-folders, all right at the MFP. The value of this technology is in its convenience and simplicity.”

KYOCERA HomePOINT allows users the option of scanning to a PDF, TIFF, or JPEG file type; it also lets them scan in color or in black-and-white and choose a number of other preferences, including resolution.

The application works seamlessly with select Kyocera HyPAS-enabled MFPs (Hybrid Platform for Advanced Solutions), a powerful and scalable software solution platform. It supports Windows shared folders and Windows distributed file system; it also supports a range of Windows file servers.
