WingScan allows you can scan from a web browser - this improves security and enables end users to scan directly to a repository without the need to save locally first. It is accomplished by using a lightweight http server on the scanning computer that the browser can communicate with and a handler on the serverside. WingScan is a stand alone product with a streamlined viewer - however when you combine WingScan with our DotImage SDK you have superior web based scanning combined with powerful viewing controls to make capturing and processing documents effortless.
- Browser-based Scanning - WingScan includes fully customizable browser controls that allow end users to submit documents directly from their scanners
- Easy installation -- WingScan includes a simple process for installing the Windows Service on the client machine.
- Browser Support - WingScan supports IE 8+, Firefox, and Chrome
