Scannx Announces Desktop to Cloud Server Infrastructure for Seemless Integration with 3rd Party Cloud-Based Solutions

Pleasanton, CA – April 30, 2012, Scannx, a leading developer of cloud-based document capture and document delivery software and services, announced today that it has completed the desktop to cloud server infrastructure for enabling the secure transfer of digital content with embedded routing directives. As a result, Scannx Cloud Services (SCS) is enabled to seamlessly integrate with 3rd party cloud based solutions including Amazon Cloud Drive, Box.net, DropBox, Evernote, Google Drive, Office 365, and OfficeDrop, among others.

“By relegating the handoff to 3rd party solutions to the Scannx Cloud Server, the need for continual upgrades to the desktop client is minimized, providing for a more reliable 24 x 7 operating environment”, said John C. Dexter, president and COO of Scannx. “Changes and enhancements to the 3rd party interfaces are implemented in the cloud environment, resulting in an agile and robust platform to accommodate current and future integrations.”

The Scannx Cloud Server supports the Book ScanCenter self-service book and document scanning kiosk. As a result, the Scannx Book ScanCenter is the only book scanning system in the market today capable of delivering scanned images to the most popular cloud based repositories in a secure, seamless and timely manner. Furthermore, the Book ScanCenter , without the need to upgrade any software on its touchscreen computer as 3rd party storage solutions are revised and enhanced, establishes a level of unmatched system reliability.

The Scannx Book ScanCenter includes a 15” touchscreen computer bundled with the Scannx software, an 11” x 17” patented book-edge scanner to protect the spine of the book from damage, and is powered by ABBYY FineReader Technology for unmatched optical character recognition accuracy. Scanned images can be automatically converted into PDF, searchable PDF, Word, JPEG, TIFF and PNG file formats and sent to email, smartphones, tablets, Google Docs, or saved to, USB drives, network folders, and FTP folders to save paper and toner. The ScanCenter can also send scanned pages to a fax and printer. Since the Book ScanCenter can integrate with debit and credit card payment systems, libraries can offer these services free or they can charge for them through a cost recovery program. The ScanCenter includes a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty and offers an optional 45 page per minute automatic document feeder.
