ScannX Earns MLA Platinum Distinction For Ninth Consecutive Year
New Overhead Book Scanner Lands Honorable Mention
January 17, 2023 – (Pleasanton, California) – ScannX®, the leading developer of cloud-based book scanning solutions for libraries, today announced that it received three platinum awards in LibraryWorks’ ninth annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs.) The awards were for the ScannX Book ScanCenter, which marks the ninth consecutive year it received platinum honors; and both the Zeutschel 15000 Comfort and the Zeutschel 16000 Comfort overhead scanners, each powered by ScannX software. The ScannX Overhead Book Scanner also scored an honorable mention.
"ScannX clearly knows how to keep both its existing and new customers happy by delivering exceptional book scanners consistently for nearly a decade,” said Jenny Newman, publisher and MLA program manager. “Its flagship book scanners continue to land our highest awards, and its new overhead scanners even score honorable mentions as soon as they enter the market and begin building an audience. None of this happens by accident. ScannX knows how to deliver and it shows!”
The MLAs were created to recognize the top products and services in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Products and services were presented to targeted groups across more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers with hands-on experience with these book scanners in their facilities were permitted to judge the products/services, resulting in a truly unbiased score on a series of questions such as functionality, value, and customer service. It was this process through which librarians determined that ScannX continued to provided platinum level products and support.
Product Feedback from Our Judges
ScannX received the following feedback from the MLA judges, for each respective product:
"As a patron-facing scanner, the OS 15000 is unparalleled. The scanner is easy to use, incorporates OCR during the scan process, removes thumbs and other extraneous content on the fly, and is very easy for patrons to figure out. The support is also amazing - we usually can have most issues addressed within one day through remote support."
"This (OS 16000) scanner was purchased to scan a specific grant project which consists of oversized books that barely fit in the max range of the scanners surface. Although there have been a few quirks between the software and hardware, this machine performs amazingly good. the company that sold the machine performed a custom build for us as we did not need the glass top for our application. The company's support team has had a service rep. answer our questions and repair small issues almost immediately. I would not hesitate to purchase this scanner over again."
"(The ScannX Book ScanCenter) totally transformed the scanning services our library provides from what we had previously. If we had the need to buy 5 more, I would without question."
"This (ScannX Overhead Book Scanner) has been used in our Archive department, because it's able to scan large items with high resolution. The tech support and customer service have been great to work with!”
