Ease of Use
Network Scanners provide various ways in which the user experience is much easier than using traditional USB-attached scanners. Most network scanners have large touchscreen displays with big buttons where little, or no operator training is required, to ‘push’ scanned documents to their chosen destinations.
Total Cost of Ownership
One of the main benefits of Network Scanners is the ability to eliminate the need for extra hardware such as a scanning computer, scanner software drivers or scanner software applications. Network Scanners do not require any of these components so there is no extra expense to add to your budget.
Integrated With Processes
With easy to use operation and using optional SDK or Web API, Network Scanners can be integrated directly into business process applications. Now organizations can embed document scanning capability within line of business applications for enhanced business efficiency.
Increase Up-time & Reliability
Designed as a single function device for scanning documents, network scanners are generally much more reliable than multi-function devices. As many of us have experienced, the print functionality of multi-function devices causes downtime due to technical breakdown, rendering the scanner useless.

A few network scanner vendors offer optional Software Developer Kit’s (SDK) allowing developers to create unique integration screens to display on the touch panel. These integrations offer tight interoperability with business systems such as Enterprise Content Management (ECM) repositories, Line of Business (LOB) applications, Electronic Medical Records (EMR), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and other third-party solutions.
In addition, user interface screens can be created with a custom look and feel to fit corporate branding. You also have the option of assigning a specific color to users and departments for quick visual recognition. Our integrated approach to network scanning enables organizations of all sizes to image-enable their current software applications and put forth the assurance of delivering images directly into back-end servers. All this without the traditional high costs, aggravation and loss of productivity involved with the other approaches within the industry that simply do not offer as much customization and control.
Quality of A Network Scanner: Image Quality And Paper Handling
Typically, the quality of IT products is underappreciated until operational disruptions caused by a failure such as paper jammed in the device. Experience in developing feeding technology to efficiently handle documents of different shapes, sizes and weights have helped set dedicated document scanner vendors apart from other technology.
Network scanners have inherited many of the qualities of traditional document scanners used in mission-critical applications, bringing the opportunities of network scanning to organizations of all sizes. The focus on the importance of mission-critical scanning is evident in today’s network scanners. Details like specific design features such as a straight paper path to reduce potential document jams, and the ability to scan plastic cards through the document feeder. Additionally, the ability to preview images after scanning, but before committing them to a destination, is an example of quality found in some network scanners.
