About Us 

 


 

"What makes ScanCorporation products different from other scanners?"

 

Proprietary Software package - All of our units have the unique and proprietary ability to 'parse' data. Parsing allows us to take the scanned data line (OCR or Barcode) and cut it into sections. By doing this, we can isolate only certain parts of the data string, add an unlimited number of keystrokes before or after the scanned line, omit any parts of the data entered or even change a scanned data character to report something else - ALL done without the need for the user to touch the keyboard! No other company in the world offers this type of advanced feature in a simple, complete low-cost package.

Contact scanner technology - Aside from our above unique parsing ability, our 5000 and 6000 scanner lines use 'contact' technology for character capture. Requiring the scanner to be flush against the surface of a data line helps us to achieve a 99.9% error free rate along with an average unit life expectancy of 10+ years. No other laser product can say that!


"...but why use OCR technology over Barcode symbology?"

 

OCR is better suited for data entry in a controlled environment for longer as well as smaller character data lines. Some OCR scanlines may contain more than 40 characters and a variety of valuable information such as a bill due date, customer account number, amount owed, type of service, etc. A common example is remittance processing, where data on utility bills or other turnaround documents need to be entered into a custom software system. Barcode is best suited where the primary function is to identify parts or items in harsh environments or where the media is to be used over and over again and consists of relatively few characters. A common example of this is the Airline Industry, identifying and tracking passenger luggage or articles. Barcodes are very tolerant to rough handling and harsh environments, but require much more space on a label or document than OCR. Inch for inch, OCR can hold 6 times more information than a standard barcode. The answer for many then becomes easy, OCR technology.


The challenge of automated data entry is to read data faster, more accurately, and at a lower cost than conventional keyboard data entry.

 

ScanCorporation.com meets this challenge by utilizing three of the premiere methodologies of data entry automation: Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Barcode and Magnetic Stripe. Our full line of OCR and Barcode readers include all popular interfaces: keyboard wedge, serial RS-232, USB 1.1/2.0/3.0, OCIA, and PC add-in cards. Our OCR readers coupled with our proprietary designed software packages make our products the most unique, advanced and customizable OCR and barcoding products in the world!
