KYOCERA MITA launches HyPAS™ Developer Partner Programme

01 September 2010

KYOCERA MITA today launched the HyPAS Developer Partner Programme for its HyPAS™ software platform. The programme will support KYOCERA MITA partners in developing bespoke software applications that optimize KYOCERA’s TASKalfa devices to offer customers advanced functionality and enhanced document workflows.

HyPAS™ is KYOCERA MITA’s powerful and scalable software platform that incorporates both Java and Web Services Software Development Kits (SDK). It enables the development of embedded and server applications that optimize the performance of KYOCERA TASKalfa MFPs, making them fully customizable and easily integrated into business applications and processes. The availability of both Java and Web Services allows developers to select the most appropriate technology for the development of their application, or combine technologies if required.

The HyPAS™ Developer Partner Programme provides comprehensive support and tools to assist developers in creating applications. On joining the programme developers will gain full access to HyPAS™ Java and Web Services SDKs, the Scan SDK and operation panel Application Programme Interfaces (API), as well as advanced development tools and detailed device information. These are delivered via the HyPAS™ Developer Portal which also includes a forum to facilitate the sharing of information and collaboration within the developer community. Development support is provided to programme members by KYOCERA MITA’s in-house team of HyPAS™ technicians. Developer partners will also take part in an initial two-day familiarisation workshop which will introduce HyPAS™ programming in a hands-on environment.

Flexible partnership

Members of the HyPAS™ Developer Partner Programme can choose the way in which they would prefer to work with KYOCERA MITA. By becoming a HyPAS™ Alliance Partner, organizations can market and distribute their application jointly with KYOCERA MITA via its local, European, or global distribution channels. Organisations wishing to distribute, market and support their HyPAS™ applications independently of KYOCERA MITA can register to become an Independent HyPAS™ Developer, enjoying the same level of access to tools and support as Alliance Partners.

Reiko Owada, Product Manager at KYOCERA MITA Europe commented: “The HyPAS™ Developer Partner Programme will promote the development of wide-ranging and innovative applications for KYOCERA TASKalfa MFPs, enabling advanced customization and integration into customer workflows and business processes. The programme is flexibly designed to benefit developers, giving them the freedom to choose how they bring their HyPAS™ applications to market. The HyPAS™ Developer Partner Programme will enable our partners to respond to client requests for highly specific and dynamic solutions, creating document systems that drive productivity and efficiency for our customers.”
