Scannx Users Make 100 Million Scans, Save 12,000 Trees

Posted on Thu, Aug 03, 2017

August 3, 2017, Livermore, CA – Scannx®, the leader in document capture and document delivery software and cloud services for library patrons and staff, announced today that libraries used Scannx book scanners to make more than 100 million scans with most opting for digital copies instead of printing, which saves money on paper and toner in the process.

Scannx systems help libraries advance their conservation and sustainability efforts. Every tree yields an average of 8,333 pages of paper, which means that Scannx users saved approximately 12,000 trees.

“Ninety-seven percent of Scannx users don't print the content they scan, opting instead to email it or to send it to their mobile device or to cloud storage," said Murray L. Dennis, Chairman and CEO, Scannx. “Scannx not only saves libraries on buying paper and toner, but the digital content their patrons get is actually superior since they can search through it and easily share it with others."

The ability to track the number of scans this precisely is due to the powerful cloud services of the Scannx platform. These services help libraries to reduce costs and optimize assets by tracking usage and managing features. Scannx Cloud Services tracks usage statistics but does not save any content or email addresses.

Scannx offers a broad selection of document scanning systems, ranging from entry-level book-edge scanners designed for use by library patrons, to the industry’s most advanced Zeutschel A2 and A3+ preservation systems for archival-quality document retention. All are designed to protect the library’s investment in its books, while delivering superior ease-of-use that allows unsupervised patrons to make their own copies.

Scannx systems include IoT technology and cloud-based support that make it simple to scan, store, and send digitized content as searchable PDF documents to Dropbox, Google Drive, email, smartphones, and tablets, as well as to local USB drives or printers. For larger installations, Scannx cloud services aggregate usage data across multiple locations, providing performance metrics and benchmarking. Software updates can automatically be pushed and installed, removing unnecessary technical burdens from library management while ensuring maximum availability.

Scannx announces Book ScanCenter™ 2.0

Posted on Tue, Sep 18, 2012

Scans in more file formats, to more destinations, almost 3x faster than systems twice its price.

Pleasanton, CA – September 18, 2012, Scannx, a Xerox trademark licensing partner and leading developer of cloud-based  document capture and document delivery software and services, announced today that it released the Scannx Book ScanCenter 2.0 self-service book scanning solution for library patrons and staff. This next generation book scanning solution represents not only a significant advancement in features, speed and configurability, but also establishes an architectural platform for extending its connectivity into emerging cloud-based services. This solution includes new features designed not only for library patrons but also for library staff and their IT support department.

“In less than 9 months since we launched the Scannx Book ScanCenter 1.0 with its many innovative and patent pending features, we are again extremely pleased to announce another major advance in self-service book scanning capabilities”, said Murray L. Dennis, chief executive officer of Scannx. “Integration with OCLC Article Exchange and ILLiad, faster OCR processing times and enhanced authentication are just a few of the new features in the Book ScanCenter.”

The Book ScanCenter scans to more places than any other self service book scanning system, including OCLC Article Exchange, ILLiad and Odyssey. OCLC services have been used in almost 10 million interlibrary loan requests last year and now library staff can fulfill these requests faster at a fraction of the cost.  Scannx offers these “advanced connectors” as an optional upgrade to the Book ScanCenter at more than 60% less cost than competitive offerings. The latest Book ScanCenter system also offers enhanced authentication to restrict access to specified destinations for authorized personal only. Hence library patrons can scan books to their smartphone or tablet while only library staff can have restricted access to ILLiad on the same Book ScanCenter to fulfill an interlibrary loan request.

Its faster to search, retrieve and share searchable PDF files than image-only PDFs. However, demand for creating searchable PDF files is constrained by the time and complexity required to create searchable and editable files. The Book ScanCenter provides unparalleled optical character recognition (OCR) accuracy and performance, converting a page into  searchable files automatically almost 3x faster than any other self-service book scanning system by simply selecting the desired file format on the touchscreen.

Innovative  libraries, whose goal is to help accelerate academic research and collaboration while reducing costs in this digital age, are replacing their copiers with self-service book scanning solutions. Library patrons can scan and send their study materials in a searchable file format to email, USB drive, Google Docs, Google Drive, smartphones and tablets, thereby reducing the use of paper and toner. Library staff may generate more revenues by fulfilling interlibrary loan requests faster at less cost by using the same Book ScanCenter used by the patrons.  The  Book ScanCenter can be connected to on-line and off-line debit and credit card payment systems for cost recovery programs and pay-per-scan options.  With both digital and green initiatives becoming higher priorities for the educational market, the copy center is fast transforming into the scan center.

The Book ScanCenter product line starts at under $5,000 and may be leased for as little  as $100 per month.

Scannx and OCLC Announce Partnership for Interlibrary Loan Requests

Posted on Wed, Jun 20, 2012

Scannx to demonstrate self-service book scanning to OCLC’s Article Exchange document sharing site at American Library Association Conference

Pleasanton, CA, June 20, 2012 – Scannx, a leading developer of cloud-based, document capture and document delivery software and services, announced today that it has developed a software “connector” for scanning from its book scanning systems to OCLC’s Article Exchange document delivery site for completing interlibrary loan requests. Article Exchange is accessible from within WorldCat Resource Sharing and via an ILLiad add-on. Since its release in January 2012, nearly 600 libraries in 16 countries have used the tool, resulting in uploads of more than 20,000 documents each month. This cooperative development effort means that academic research and collaboration tools are getting faster, better and cheaper. Demonstrations will be held at the American Library Association conference on June 22-25 in Anaheim, CA in Scannx’ booth #727. Attendees who come by the booth for a demo can also register to win an iPad.

“Scannx and OCLC are dedicated to furthering access to the world’s information while, at the same time, reducing library costs”, said John C. Dexter, president and COO of Scannx. “Scannx-powered book scanning systems are replacing the traditional and very expensive overhead book scanners and copiers. The joint effort will help accelerate academic research and collaboration while, at the same time, further promote Green-technology initiatives.”

OCLC has grown into a worldwide organization in which over 25,000 libraries, archives and museums in 170 countries are members. Their shared cataloging service is among the busiest in the world, delivering access to more than 271 million items available from the WorldCat database. . Cooperative advances have expanded to help libraries better manage workflows, collection management, reference services, resource sharing and digital materials. New Web-scale services amplify library cooperation even further. OCLC has helped fulfill over 9.6 million interlibrary loan requests during the last year through its WorldCat Resource Sharing and ILLiad services.

The Article Exchange document-sharing site provides a single, secure location where lending libraries can place requested documents and library users can retrieve articles or book chapters obtained for them via interlibrary loan. This site adds convenience, security and enhanced copyright compliance to article sharing through interlibrary loan. Article Exchange is accessible from within the WorldCat Resource Sharing service. With the integration of Article Exchange into Scannx’ book scanning systems, library staff can more easily deliver documents to the people who need them in a secure, cloud-based environment.

INTERVIEW: Linda McCann saves BIG with paperless scanning at Bucks County Community College

Posted on Tue, Jun 19, 2012

Bucks County Community College, Newtown, PA
By Patricia Hayse Haller

What Bucks County Community College says about Scannx Book ScanCenter:
“It’s been a paper-saving, easy-to-use solution that requires very little staff help, which is especially helpful in the fall and spring semesters when we are very busy. For students, it’s nice to have an electronic copy for their records, and to be able to collaborate with others by sending documents electronically.”
Linda McCann,
Director of Library Services,
Bucks County Community College Library

About Bucks County Community College
Since 1964, Bucks County Community College in southeastern Pennsylvania has offered an affordable two-year college education to the area’s growing population. It’s a place where area residents can take a first step toward a bachelor’s degree, get a certificate that launches a new career, or return again and again for a lifetime of learning. Most graduates transfer from the associate degree program to a four-year college. The community college has smaller campuses in Bristol and Perkasie, but the main 200-acre campus is located in Newton, where the 40-year-old library is half-way through a major renovation aimed at fostering greater collaboration between students and staff and offering more flexible spaces for today’s learners.

The first phase of the renovation brought a number of related services all together onto the main floor, along including the reference desk, tutoring resources and a media learning lab designed to foster 21st century learning skills called MInDSpace (Media and Instructional Design). The redesigned second floor, scheduled to open this summer, will feature both collaborative work areas and quiet study areas, as well as a consolidated circulation and technology help desk. The final phase will add office space, computer classrooms and extra equipment storage in time for the Fall 2012 semester.

Scannx at Bucks Library: Less paper; more collaboration
The library building isn’t the only thing that’s being transformed at Bucks County Community College. The way library patrons use and share books and materials is changing too, thanks to a new Scannx Book ScanCenter, a simple and complete self-service book and document scanning solution that pairs an intuitive 15” touchscreen with an 11”x15” book-edge scanner and next-generation cloud-based document management.

According to Linda McCann, Director of Library Services at Bucks, today’s students are working more on group projects, using e-books and making a lot of PowerPoint presentations. Instead of charging for printing, Bucks charges a flat technology fee, then allows students to print whatever they want. The result was that students were printing multiple copies of their presentations, class notes and even whole book chapters to share with their group.

“I found we were going through a lot of printer paper, both at the library and the college,” she said. So when she heard about the Scannx BookScan Center being used at nearby Delaware Valley College, she decided to go see it for herself. The demonstration convinced her to buy two for Bucks Community College. The first was installed in early 2010 near the first-floor reference desk. The second will debut in a few weeks, near the new circulation and technology help desk.

“Everybody loves it,” said McCann. Now, she said, students have a paperless option that is completely free. They are able to scan periodicals that can’t be checked out and e-mail the articles to themselves or save them to a USB drive. They make one quick scan of their notes or project materials and e-mail them to everyone in their group at the same time. They can even scan papers to GoogleDocs so their whole team can collaborate electronically. So far, few are choosing to scan to iPads or smartphones – mainly because the price of those devices is out of reach for most of Buck’s students – but that could change as those technologies become more affordable.

While she has not calculated the paper or cost savings, McCann is certain the scanner is providing both. And with tightening budgets and the college’s sustainability initiative, “I’ve been trying to go as paperless as possible,” she said.

Book ScanCenter and more
Students aren’t the only ones using the Scannx Book ScanCenter. The staff has also found it invaluable. McCann says she started using it to fax documents when the regular fax machine broke down, and she’s never gone back. “It just makes a lot more sense to me, because I have a record of what I sent that includes the actual document as a scan.”

The library has even used it to repair books. “Sometimes we’ll have an older book that is missing a page, or a student will tear out three pages of literary criticism they need,” she said. A quick scan of the missing pages from another volume can be printed out and inserted into the damaged book. It’s not something they have to do often, but repairing damaged books makes McCann really appreciate the Scannx Book ScanCenter’s patented beveled book-edge design, which delivers distortion-free scans and protects the book spine from damage. There’s no need to press the book flat, and no ‘black gutter’ swallowing the words on the edge of the page.

Mostly, though, McCann likes the fact that the Scannx Book ScanCenter is so easy to use. Before, when students wanted to scan materials, they were sent to the Technology Learning Center, which has a flatbed scanner attached to a desktop computer. They almost always needed help, and the Learning Center isn’t always staffed. In contrast, the Scannx Book ScanCenter has large easy-to-read buttons on a touch-screen that guide users through each step, helping them choose a file format, adjust image quality and color depth, crop the image, and send or save the scan to printer, USB, fax, GoogleDocs, or a smartphone or tablet.

“It’s self explanatory and very easy to use,” said McCann. “I’ve found that very few people need any assistance at all. Overall, she said, the Scannx Book ScanCenter “has been a huge success, and we can’t wait to get that second unit all set up.”
