In the digitizing of archives, the scanning of large volumes of paper-based documents in a defined period of time is essential. The condition of the documents often represents an immense challenge, for example, when the documents to be scanned are torn, wrinkled or otherwise damaged. Here high demands are placed on the paper conveyance of an archive scanner. Moreover, the paper must not only be transported dependably but frequently also particularly gently, as is the case with historic and valuable documents. In professional archive scanning, maximum image quality for true-to-the-original illustrations and scanning objects is always assumed as a prerequisite.
SCAMAX® scanners are experts in archiving and offer you many advantages:
The digital mail room is the starting point for a large portion of the digital processes for your organization. That makes the efficient digitizing of your daily incoming mail critical for success. It is often the case that tens of thousands of different documents must be recorded daily within just a few hours – as extensively as possible without resource-intensive manual work steps. Malfunctions in the scanning of incoming mail entail immediate consequences, extending from idle states in downstream processes to missed discount periods. The greatest possible reliability and failure safety are thus basic requirements for an incoming mail scanner.
SCAMAX® scanners are true champions in the mail room and offer you many advantages:
The processes and business workflows of our company are characterized by documents and forms – by formatted information carriers in paper form. They are structured in such a way that their information can be quickly transferred to IT structures and IT applications and utilized there. Examples of different documents are certificates of incapacity, transfer forms, statements of accounts, prescriptions, ballots and multiple-choice tests. It is the goal of digital document acquisition to transform paper-based information quickly, unequivocally and loss-free into digital systems, so that downstream OCR processes and automatic follow-up processes are able to operate fault-free, efficiently and without subsequent manual corrections or subsequent indexing.
SCAMAX® scanners raise your document processing to a new level and offer you many advantages:
As health insurance provider, the Techniker Krankenkasse serves more than 10.7 million insured persons throughout Germany. We have been using the SCAMAX® 422 for over 10 years now for the acquisition and digitalization of our entire incoming mail in daily, high-volume operation. The product longevity of the scanner is exemplary in that it reduces operating costs and contributes significantly to the sustainability of our scanning processes. In the future we plan on working with the SCAMAX® 631 scanner, during the development of which we, as customer, were able to offer our suggestions and wishes. This partnership-based cooperation with InoTec led to a sophisticated scanner, which is optimized to meet our requirements as statutory health insurance company and which surpasses its predecessor with respect to technical performance.
As a scanning service, we scan, digitize and archive tens of millions of documents every year for our customers, e.g. banks or city councils: audit-proof and data protection-compliant. Our goal is always to standardize the digitization processes as far as possible. The SCAMAX® 4x3 has proven to be ideal for this, as it processes even heterogeneous document qualities and file structures in homogeneous, standardized scanning processes: reliably, in the best image quality and with high performance. This allows us to organize the deployment of our scanning staff with maximum efficiency, from which we and our customers benefit equally.
As a scanning service provider we primarily acquire commercial documents from accounting departments and shipping documents. The paperweight of the documents extends from 30 g for very thin paper up to 150 g for cardboard. Frequently the documents are folded, crumpled or severly soiled. The scanner of a well-known brand that we had acquired at favorable terms was not equal to this task; in processing a representative stack of 200 documents, 30 incidents of double page infeed and five paper jams occurred. All told, we had to open the device 19 times. For this reason we replaced it with a SCAMAX®. The results convinced us immediately. Documents of all types were captured reliably and in high quality. The ROI amounted to about seven months. Today we employ four SCAMAX® scanners, with which we have scanned around 60 million documents to date.
When we merged two hospitals with voluminous archives for paper-based and microfilmed patient records, we ran the risk of coming up against spatial capacity limits and slowing down central work processes. After intensive testing, we opted for SCAMAX® scanners for the digitalization of our patient records. Crucial factors for these scanners were their safe infeed for mixed documents, their optimum image quality, their simple handling and their excellent price-performance ratio. We now archive around 370,000 documents per month. After scanning, the software is responsible for furnishing the documents, in stacks, with an electronic signature, which provides us with wide-ranging legal security.
Our clients always submit their documents at the end of the month. Then we have to scan tens of thousands of documents in the shortest time possible. In the beginning we tried to do this with a conventional passage scanner, but it quickly reached its limits when faced with the volume and the condition of the documents. As a result, we replaced it with a genuine production scanner. The SCAMAX® significantly increased our process efficiency. The device scans even demanding paper qualities swiftly, reliably and in outstanding image quality and we were able to integrate it without difficulty into our DATEV applications.
The digitalization of our archive collections – among them valuable original manuscripts of Günter Grass – was an ambitious scanning project. The SCAMAX® scanning systems were thoroughly convincing here. Thanks to their simple handling we were able to scan sensitive documents productively and safely following only a brief introduction – without trained scanning personnel. To me, a major advantage of the SCAMAX® scanners is their reliable, material-friendly feed feature. But also, the excellent service of the InoTec engineers, who provide assistance quickly and in an uncomplicated manner when questions arise.
As deep freeze logistics specialists we need to scan and archive large volumes of confirmed delivery notes, filled out loading bills and other documents every day. For this we use SCAMAX® production scanners. The decision in favor of SCAMAX® was reached following a practical test with models of various suppliers. The SCAMAX® scanners were convincing here, among other things because of their extensive usability and problem-free maintainability for our employees. In operation, the scanners exhibit high scanning quality. As verified by employee feedback and daily checkups, the portion of documents that can be handled work-free now lies at nearly 100 %.
