OmtoolT Delivers Its AccuRoute® Solution on Sharp OSAT-Enabled MFPs

Andover, Mass. and Mahwah, N. J., April 8, 2008 - Omtool, Ltd. (OTCBB:OMTL), a leading provider of document capture and handling solutions along with Sharp Document Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), today announced the development and delivery of Omtool's AccuRoute document capture and handling solution for Sharp OSAT-enabled multifunction peripherals (MFPs).

The AccuRoute Embedded Device Client for Sharp OSA-enabled MFPs allows users to access AccuRoute's document capture and handling features through AccuRoute-specific buttons that can be added to the touch screen control panel of any Sharp OSA-enabled multi-function peripheral (MFP).  Using these functions, users can scan hardcopy documents at the MFP for delivery to personal or public distributions on the AccuRoute system.  Users can also access AccuRoute from the MFP for simple, ad-hoc document routing operations such as a quick scan-to-self for delivery back to the user's desktop or scan-to-fax. 

According to Michael Marusic, Vice President of Marketing for SIICA, "AccuRoute provides a comprehensive document capture and handling platform that allows organizations to take control of their documents throughout the information lifecycle. We are very excited to team with Omtool to expand the portfolio of Sharp OSA-enabled offerings with AccuRoute's extended document capture capabilities."

"Sharp OSA technology allows software developers such as Omtool to develop solutions that streamline the capture and routing functions for any user, increasing efficiency and ultimately productivity," said Thaddeus Bouchard, Chief Technology Officer, Omtool.  "AccuRoute Embedded Device Client for Sharp OSA-enabled MFPs can also be configured to confirm identification of users through a standard WindowsÔ network login, verified against a Windows Active Directory.  Once the user has been identified and/or authenticated at the device, AccuRoute can present routing options that are personalized to an individual user as well as track all routing activities performed by the user at that device in order to maintain a secure and comprehensive audit trail to comply with federal regulations or rigorous corporate mandates."
