Epic Marketing Solutions Adopts Book2net Book Scanner for Historical Data Project

Share Article

When Epic Marketing Solutions, a Halifax-based digital marketing and data solutions company, was asked to digitize extensive volumes of historical data for the provincial government, they knew they would need a book scanner that was easy to use, durable and accurate. They turned to Ristech’s Book2net Kiosk digital book scanner for this important project.

"...the (book2net Kiosk) scanner has really stood up to the challenge of this big project,” said Steven Elliott, general manager, Epic Marketing Solutions

The Book2net Kiosk is a scanner that includes a high-resolution, single-shot camera that can scan up to 2,000 pages per hour and is still gentle on books; it can also handle oversized documents and scan with clarity and accuracy. Epic Marketing Solutions is using the scanner to digitize documents from the Land Registries Office, each book the size of a tabloid newspaper and weighing up to 10 pounds.

“We have different locations and different staff that have needed to be trained quickly for this project. Because of the scanner’s ease of use, they have all been sailing within hours; the scanner has really stood up to the challenge of this big project,” said Steven Elliott, general manager, Epic Marketing Solutions.

“When you’re handling government documents, security, accuracy and simplicity are paramount, so we were pleased to provide this book scanning solution for Epic Marketing Solutions and their clients,” said Robb Richardson, president, Book2net, North American Operations.

In addition to the digitizing project, Epic Marketing Solutions has also undertaken a variety of database and data entry projects for the provincial government. The company began as the marketing branch of EPIC Education Program Innovations Center and now offers consulting, marketing, web hosting, database management and more.
