The independent testing at BLI confirms what we’ve long considered to be true: that InoTec offers a sustainable and efficient product line in the professional high-speed scanner market.

The Crowley Company, exclusive North American distributor for the German-manufactured InoTec document scanners, announces that three of InoTec’s 400-series document scanners have been awarded 2013 Buyers Laboratory (BLI)Winter ”Picks.” Buyers Laboratory LLC, of Hackensack, New Jersey, is the world’s leading independent tester of document imaging products. According to a BLI statement, which called the InoTec SCAMAX-series a “production powerhouse,” the 403, 413 and 423 series gave excellent overall performances during BLI’s comprehensive product evaluations. The scanners were awarded in the low-volume (403CD model), mid-volume (413CD model) and high-volume (423CD model) production scanner categories. InoTec had three of the six scanners selected for the winter “Picks.”

According to Lisa Reider, BLI’s senior product editor for scanners, “In addition to the unique hardware design, the [InoTec] units offer a superb selection of software and imaging features to help clean up and route digitized documents. In fact, the units exhibited the highest overall OCR accuracy rate of any scanner tested to date.” Reider also noted that “with the help of SCAMAX Scan+, a virtually unlimited number of scan profiles can be created for frequently used operations.”

Wolf-Christopher Gramatte, InoTec Organisationssysteme’s vice director of international sales, notes that “the independent testing at BLI confirms what we’ve long considered to be true: that InoTec offers a sustainable and efficient product line in the professional high-speed scanner market with our SCAMAX 400-series models.”

Matthew McCabe, Crowley vice president, expounds on Gramatte’s comment. “There is a lot of iconic and credible competition in the document scanning market. Crowley has selected to exclusively distribute the InoTec brand because the scanners are virtually maintenance-free, the image quality is excellent, they work 24/7/365 and they can be upgraded as new technology arises versus having to be replaced, making them a solid long-term investment. As we primarily market to records and operations managers, archivists and service bureaus with mid- to high-volume capture demands, the InoTec scanners are an ideal fit. We know this for fact as we operate InoTec scanners in our own national scanning bureau.”
