Press Release: Scannx [February 23, 2017]

Xerox and Scannx Partner on Book Scanners

February 22, 2017 (Livermore, California) Scannx today announced a distribution partnership with Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) to bring Scannx-branded scanners and software to its base of resellers and end-users, effective immediately. Under this agreement, Xerox will gain rights to distribute the entire line of Scannx book-edge scanners, as well as its advanced technology for imaging and cloud-based distribution.

"We are delighted that Xerox selected Scannx as its partner, bringing our innovative scanner technology to a wide range of new users," said Murray L. Dennis, CEO of Scannx. "Xerox has led a worldwide transformation from analog to digital imaging, and we are enthusiastic about collaborating with them to deliver products that increase competitiveness and boost productivity."

Scannx offers a broad selection of document scanning systems, ranging from entry-level book-edge scanners designed for use by library patrons, to the industry's most advanced A2 and A3+ preservation systems for archival-quality document retention. All are designed to protect the library's investment in its books, while delivering superior ease-of-use that allows unsupervised patrons to make their own copies.

"Scannx solutions have been used to scan more than 85 million pages, at locations ranging from small, local libraries to the largest universities," continued Dennis. "Library managers especially appreciate that Scannx systems require little to no oversight or patron assistance. They're easy to install and easy to use, and expand the range of services that libraries can offer their patrons."

Scannx systems include IoT technology and cloud-based support that make it simple to scan, store, and send digitized content as searchable PDF documents to Dropbox, Google Drive, email, smartphones, and tablets, as well as to local USB drives or printers. For larger installations, Scannx cloud services aggregate usage data across multiple locations, providing performance metrics and benchmarking. Software updates can automatically be pushed and installed, removing unnecessary technical burdens from library management while ensuring maximum availability.

Accessibility is a standard feature of all Scannx systems, which are designed to meet the needs of visually impaired and fully blind users. Audio feedback simplifies navigating the scanning process; books can be read to the user while scanning; or text converted into MP3 files that can be listened to at their convenience.
