November 15, 2021, Pleasanton, CA – ScannX®, the leader in book and document capture document delivery software, and cloud services for library patrons and staff, announced today that libraries used ScannX Book Scanning Solutions to make more than 200 million scans.

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 24,000 trees. “Beyond the potential environmental impact, as most of those scans would have been copies just a few short years ago, ScannX is helping libraries like yours transform the way information is shared and consumed," said Murray L. Dennis, Chairman and CEO, ScannX.

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 award-winning, intuitive software enables users to output their scans to: email, Google Drive, mobile devices, network, print, USB drive, and Wepa. Add-on options expand that list to include Article Exchange, Box, Dropbox, fax, ILLiad, Odyssey, Office 365, OneDrive, print from cloud or USB drive, print from mobile device, Tipasa, and WorldShare ILL.

And with our integration with the ABBYY FineReader Engine for unmatched accuracy, the scanned output is not just a flat image of a page, but actual editable text and searchable PDFs that can span multiple languages.
