Book Scanning Software Options

You can customize your Scannx system to your unique specifications, by extending it with the following options:


Enhanced Authentication

Control access to features and scan-to destinations by requiring user authentication prior to use. Enhanced authentication allows the IT department to enable selected individuals to access secure scanning destinations. Authentication feature also prevents sending of anonymous emails.

Features At A Glance:

  • PIN Code Access
  • LDAP Authentication
  • SMTP Authentication
  • Customizable Welcome Message
  • Manage pricing discounts by group membership

OCLC Article Exchange Connector

This connector enables library staff to send large scanned files directly to Article Exchange for delivery to subscribing libraries with a simple touchscreen selection.

This Scannx link authenticates to the Article Exchange (AE) service, uploads image format files (PDF, sPDF, TIFF, JPEN and PNG), and receives a tiny URL and password back from the AE service. The Scannx software will then populate the email message with the tiny URL and password for delivery to the recipient.

ILLiad and Odyssey Interlibrary Loan Connectors

InterLibrary Loan (ILL) allows patrons of one library access to materials at another library, either by physical or digital delivery. Scannx has partnered with Atlas systems and OCLC to simplify the InterLibrary Loan fulfillment process.

With the Scannx software, the delivery process no longer requires a specialized system. Simply scan the pick sheet on the Scannx Book ScanCenter which detects the TN number automatically. Then the library staff scans all pages requested, presses Next, and the rest of the delivery is automated.

Additional OCR Languages

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) converts different types of documents, such as scanned paper documents, PDF files, or images into editable and searchable data.

Scannx has embedded the ABBYY FineReader technology into its Book ScanCenter to provide unmatched optical character recognition (OCR) accuracy.

By default, Scannx includes OCR technology that recognizes English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish text. This ABBYY FineReader engine upgrade recognizes 189 languages for OCR.
