Drivve | Image™


Drivve Image

Drivve | Image™ is a powerful document capture and routing solution. It leverages Sharp OSA technology allowing users to quickly and easily capture paper documents and their metadata for ongoing processing from the Sharp MFP control panel. Its powerful features include scan-to-email, scan-to-fax, Bates Stamping, digital rights management, Zonal OCR and Barcode recognition with output to many business applications and systems.

Drivve | Image™ is licensed per device and has a modular architecture enabling customers to start with basic scan/capture functionality and introduce more advanced functionality as their requirements grow and develop.

Some Drivve | Image™ modules can be used individually while others can be used in combination. The modules can be purchased as either embedded connector licenses developed with the Sharp OSA platform or as Hotfolder server licenses.

The embedded connector licenses allow users to access the functionality directly from the Sharp MFP panel. Please contact your sales rep to get details of supported Sharp MFP models.

The Hotfolder server licenses allow users to process scans server-side, no matter the make and model of the input device.
