This morning, Nuance announced the completion of the Equitrac acquisition.. We are all very excited to officially be a part of Nuance and for the terrific opportunities that await us, our partners and our customers.

This is a major milestone in the process of integrating the two companies. However, if you are a customer or partner, we want to emphasise that there is no change to the existing contacts or online resources that you are accustomed to. It is business as usual. Nuance is committed to the full range of Equitrac products and partnerships. And we will continue to keep you informed of information related to the integration of the Equitrac business with Nuance as it becomes available.

What is not business as usual is the impact Nuance now has on the market. With the addition of Equitrac, Nuance brings an unmatched set of people, products and intellectual property to help organisations win the battle over paper. Nuance's full portfolio of solutions will speed and optimise the way office workers create, edit and share documents in organisations of any size across the globe.

The benefits of incorporating the Equitrac business into the Nuance Imaging group crosses over to both customers and partners alike, and sets a new standard in the print management, cost recovery and scanning marketplace.

With the completion of the acquisition, Nuance now offers:

* Complete document automation solutions - Nuance is the first and only software company with integrated and complete document automation solutions for printing, scanning and workflow - from the desktop, to the MFP, to mobile devices, and to enterprise applications.
* The most robust and global partner and channel network - We have strong distribution and channel partnerships with nearly every MFP and printer vendor in the world, including Brother, Canon, Dell, HP, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, Samsung, Sharp, Xerox and more.
* Unrivalled sales and customer service - The sales and support team is the most experienced in the industry for print and scanning solutions, and is also by far the largest team dedicated to delivering unrivalled levels of service to our customers and channel partners worldwide.

While today marks the completion of the 34-year story of Equitrac as a business entity, it is really just the start of a new chapter for the Equitrac portfolio of products. As we begin this new chapter, the full Equitrac team wants to thank the more than 25 000 customers, business partners and, of course, all of the employees that have helped make Equitrac a success. Equitrac has become synonymous with helping people print smarter, and our products are now part of a larger portfolio of solutions that will help organisations increase cost savings and office productivity through overall document workflow improvements.

It is no surprise that the industry reaction to the acquisition has been very positive. Bringing together best-of-class solutions and people creates immediate opportunities for our customers and partners to take advantage of, and it paves the way for continued innovation in office technology. We look forward to working with all of you as we create the next chapter.
