Kyocera’s Unique HyPAS Platform
Kyocera’s HyPAS is unique in that it offers both Java-based and Web Services-based Software Development Kits (SDKs), providing a more open and flexible platform; enabling advanced integration with systems that are already implemented in the enterprise.
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.
