Software Solutions

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

Accessibility for Visually-Impaired Users

Accessibility tools in our software were designed to assist blind and visually impaired individuals as well as struggling readers who face unique barriers when attempting to access information from books and other printed library resources. This feature also increases the availability of books and documents to readers for whom English is not their native language, as well as enables users to bring audio content to mobile devices.

Features At A Glance:

  • Audio narration to guide patrons through the scanning process.
  • High-contrast viewing mode
  • On-screen text magnifier
  • Convert text into MP3 audio format and save it to a USB drive for later listening


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.

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

Fax Services

Sending documents and images via fax has never been easier with the scan-to-fax functionality on the Scannx Book ScanCenter. The cloud-based faxing service allows faxing to domestic and a limited number of international phone numbers. A built-in cover sheet is sent on all faxes, and a confirmation email can be sent to the user when the transmission is complete.

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.

Mobile Authentication

Give your users the option to authenticate their cloud-based account credentials (such as Google or Office 365) via their mobile device instead of logging in using username and password each time. After the user chooses to “opt-in” the first time, authentication is very quick and easy on subsequent uses of the Scannx software.

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.

OCLC Tipasa/WorldShare

OCLC Tipasa is the world’s first cloud-based interlibrary loan management system. It allows you to manage a high volume of interlibrary loan requests, automate routine borrowing and lending functions, and provide an enhanced patron experience. WorldShare ILL integrates discovery and delivery of electronic, digital and print materials within a single interface.

The Scannx Book ScanCenter allows you to seamlessly attach scanned images with an OCLC Request ID. Either by scanning an OCLC-generated barcode or entering the Request ID manually, scanned images will be linked to a Request ID associated with your OCLC account. Then, simply login to your OCLC account and send the image back to the requesting library. Your process is now streamlined and simple for anyone to use!

Scannx Software Upgrade

Save time and money by upgrading your TBS or iVina book-edge scanner systems to the latest Scannx software and cloud services. The Scannx Book ScanCenter software can easily be installed on your existing touchscreen PCs (minimum i3 processor, 4GB RAM, Windows 10 Pro) to provide you with the latest in world-class scanning software on hardware that you already own. The software upgrade also includes access to Scannx Cloud Services so you can track usage, view scanner activity, and manage warranty data using your Scannx Portal account. 

Secure CloudPack

The Book ScanCenter Standard Edition (SE) software package includes secure access to Google Drive and Gmail for users. Secure access requires users to provide username and password to their cloud-based accounts before uploading scanned images to insure they are safely stored. Expand your offering to include secure authentication and uploading of scanned images & documents to Box, Dropbox, MS OneDrive, and MS Office 365 by purchasing the Secure Cloud Pack.

Translation Services

The Scannx Scan-to-Translate service enables users to scan a document and have it automatically translated into up to 100+ different languages instantly.  Scannx integrated its document capture software and cloud services with Microsoft Translate and Google Translate cloud services.

As a result, the Scannx software securely and automatically uploads scanned documents to either translation cloud service and returns the original plus the translated version as two separate Word attachments in one email, or stores them as two separate Word files in Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, or USB drive folders.

Since translation services may not provide an exact translation, the Word (.DOCX) file format allows the user to edit/correct any errors. Preliminary estimates by libraries and law firms see Scan-to-Translate forecast a 60-80% savings in data input.
