HyPas technology – Giving business a new dimension

Do you know what an MFP is? It is a multifunction printer which can perform different tasks like photocopy, facsimile, scan, email exchange and all this apart from printing a huge number of documents with remarkable precision and clarity.

Thus multifunction printers have slowly emerged into one of the most viable options for big business houses keeping in mind their ever increasing demands. However, MFPs have also found their way into homes and small to medium sized business houses. This is primarily because of their  unique features like superior quality, bankability, versatility, usability and small size which make them mandatory for those businesses which aim for an increased productivity and profitability. So instead of buying multiple devices, isn’t a novel idea to combine all into one which also reduces the footprint both in homes or a small business set up?

Furthermore, with US MFP market experiencing a whopping double-digit growth over the last several years, the signs are loud and clear. This is almost the end of the market for standalone units.

Some of the manufacturers of the multifunction printers include biggies like Kyocera, Copystar, Oki, Lexmark, Canon, Fellow Shredders………..the list is endless. As we all know the MFPs are the talk of the town. But Kyocera has launched a powerful solution which promises to optimize the performance of Kyocera’s award-winning MFPs with the help of customized and integrated software applications. All this is aimed at giving the business a completing new dimension through improved information sharing and resource optimization.

Now the most pertinent question that crosses the mind is which is the technology at work here? Known as HyPas, (Hybrid Platform for Advanced Solutions) it combines both Java and web based technologies that make the system capable of solving most complex business challenges. Although Java is normally used for mobile applications like cell phones, in this particular case it facilitates embedding applications and features within the multifunction printers itself.

Kyocera’s HyPAS (Hybrid Platform for Advanced Solutions), a powerful and scalable software solution platform, optimizes the performance of Kyocera’s award-winning MFPs through custom, integrated software applications that are designed to meet and exceed users specific document imaging needs.

Utilizing Two key Technologies
Java™, a programming language that is commonly used for mobile applications, such as cell-phones, provides the capability to embed features and applications within the document imaging device itself. By embedding Java applications within Kyocera MFPs, an existing feature set can be extended with more advanced, feature-rich, server-less capabilities, delivering seamless integration and advanced control capability. Using Java programming language, the Kyocera MFP can communicate with custom or proprietary applications and also with Web Services enabled applications.

By adopting industry standard protocols such as SOAP/XML, HyPAS Web Services offers programmers a developer-friendly environment. Web Service applications provide system integrators with flexibility and interoperability because they can be implemented on a wide range of platforms and using almost any programming language. In addition, using Web Services SDKs, Kyocera MFPs can communicate with other advanced hardware devices which are Web Services – enabled devices such as Apple’s iPhone or iPod Touch.

By combining these two technologies, HyPAS delivers expanded versatility and capability to companies and its staff, allowing for the quick delivery of solutions to market that seamlessly integrate with select Kyocera MFPs.
