Captaris Kicks off a Document Driven Process Automation Roadshow Across North America

Bellevue, Wash. — April 23, 2008 — Captaris, Inc. (NASDAQ:CAPA), a leading provider of software products that automate document-centric processes and Microsoft announced today the Document Process Automation Roadshow (DPAR). The DPAR events will consist of a series of breakfast briefings, delivered in an educational format, that demonstrate how organizations are replacing manual paper based processes with automated document processing by leveraging Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007 and Captaris solutions.

These free educational briefings will address the latest capabilities for document capture, intelligent recognition, document routing and enterprise content management (ECM).  Captaris and Microsoft will be joined by Industry Experts who will discuss and demonstrate how organizations can dramatically reduce costs, streamline processes, and improve compliance within their existing business applications.

Beginning on May 12th in Seattle, WA, the briefings are designed to inform and educate senior-level business managers and technology decision makers on the significant impact that Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and the suite of Captaris products have in simplifying operations, increasing efficiencies and enabling compliancy with document-driven processes.

"This education series offers executives and IT professionals exposure to the very latest integrated solutions from Microsoft and Captaris," said Paul Yantus, executive vice president of marketing and new product development for Captaris.

“So many organizations using Microsoft Office SharePoint Server are unable to realize the true power of SharePoint because their manual, paper-dependent processes inhibit the information flowing into the system.  This educational series will represent the widespread business improvements realized with Captaris and Microsoft products,” said Daniel Cheng, president, Process Fusion, a valued Captaris partner.

The half-day briefings will take place at the Microsoft offices in the following cities:

Seattle, WA – May 12

Reston, VA – May 20

Atlanta, GA – May 22

New York, NY – May 29

Chicago, IL - June 2
