Succeeding Canon's imageFORMULA ScanFront 300 and 300P models, the ScanFront 330's web-based software development kit (SDK) makes it easier for solution providers, IT integrators and developers to create connected "capture apps".
In Web Application Mode, the imageFORMULA ScanFront 330 directly connects to the customer's server, where a personalised application developed by a Canon partner defines how the document will be processed further. This offers partners versatile opportunities to transform the document sharing and processing workflows of their customers, especially in corporate headquarters, decentralised offices and customer service points.
Developers can also make full use of the scanner's capability of transferring metadata in CSV or XML format with the image file when creating new and streamlined ways of integrating data into existing document management processes. For example, integrating information such as the device name, user name, date of scanning, or other customised data into workflows can support customers in retrieving files and tracking audits.
Network scanners play a crucial part
"According to our Office Insights 2013 research, over half of respondents would like to be able to personalise the functions of the office equipment they use, and two-thirds said they value automatic capturing and processing of scanned documents.
"Our new imageFORMULA ScanFront 330 helps partners meet this customer demand through its software development kit, which allows them to create personalised applications, offering customers unprecedented ways of connecting document-based information into their business workflows."
The imageFORMULA ScanFront 330 scans up to 60ipm and includes a newly-designed feed roller mechanism, which increases the feeding and separation reliability when scanning batches of mixed documents. In addition, it comes with an ultrasonic double feed detection sensor to help prevent any important documents not being captured.
Helps keep customers' information safe
The new device allows partners to help keep their customers' information safe. It incorporates a set of advanced security features, including secure device access, setting user control restrictions, and encrypting documents with password protection. It also supports LDAP over SSL communication (LDAPS) that encrypts data sent between the LDAP client and the LDAP server, further adding to the device's robust security features.
Partners will also be able to help customers drive down their IT costs through its fast-and-easy administration. They can make any updates or configurations remotely using a simple web browser or across multiple devices using the ScanFront Administration Tool. The device plugs directly into the network and can run as a standalone scanner not requiring any additional hardware or server software.
