Share Article

When Prensa Scan, a Canada-based book scanning company that is expanding internationally later this year, needed a new high-end digital book scanner, the company did its research, reviewing companies and products from around the world before turning to its Burlington neighbor Ristech, which offers high-resolution, energy-efficient Book2net digital scanners

"The most important element for us was finding the best scanner..." Karin Helfich, VP Prensa Scan

Prensa Scan recently purchased the Book2net Kiosk offered by Ristech, which includes a high-resolution, single-shot camera that can scan up to 2,000 pages per hour and is still gentle on books. Saving time, money and energy with fast and precise digital scanning, Prensa Scan offers digitization and preservation of texts, including historical documents, academic journals and more.

“The most important element for us was finding the best scanner, and it was a bonus that Ristech was located right down the street,” said Karin Helfrich, vice president of sales and marketing for Prensa Scan. “With the quality of the scans, the outstanding camera and lens, and the ease of use for the software, the Book2net Kiosk has been all we hoped it would be.”

In particular, Prensa Scan works with universities and libraries to provide the latest 3-D scanning, book and document scanning, and interactive e-books using the latest scanning technology available.

“We enjoy working with our customers across Canada and were particularly pleased to develop a relationship with a close neighbor in Prensa Scan,” said Robb Richardson, president, Book2net, North American operations. “We are thrilled that they appreciate the quality and simplicity offered by the Book2net Kiosk and look forward to joining them as they expand to new locations.”

Prensa Scan is also in the process of establishing Scanner2Go, which will offer basic document scanning services in a variety of locations.
