SCANNING - WHAT DO YOU REALLY GET?
(March 31, 2011)
Some scanners are known to be
"workhorses", and even though
their production numbers aren't as impressive on
paper as other models, are built to last the
rigors of a long and tough work schedule.
It depends upon your foreseen needs.
Since 1998, there is no longer a special
need for a proprietary scanner interface, since
SCSI technology (a $130 PCI interface) is fast
enough for 99.9% of all scanner applications and
every scanner manufacturer provides scanners
with SCSI interfaces.
Some drivers will not allow you to operate the
scanner at its ideal efficiency.
The ability of your feeder to properly take,
feed and disperse documents could make up
to +/- 30% of productivity. Keep in mind
that with some scanners more than others,
you have to clear paper jams, correct double
feeds, or adjust the scanner properly to the
type of documents you like to scan.
Endorser and Imprinter Functionality
A must in
almost all legal and government applications, it
allows you to make sure that you properly keep
track of all documents that you scan. Not
all scanners have this capability.
Size of Feeder and Documents
example, using DpuScan, our software of choice,
if you can scan in Landscape format, with our software
we can perform a 90 degree rotation "on
the fly" and increase the scanner
performance about 30%!
If there is a problem with your scanner,
what kind of support does the company provide
and how much do you have to pay to make sure
your system stays up and running?
