“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."
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.
