RemoteScan Now an Option for Agents

April 20, 2005

RemoteScan Corporation, the makers of network connectivity software for document scanners and digital cameras, announced the release of RemoteScan for Insurance Agents.

Office workers at insurance agencies and branch offices can now use any kind of document scanner — including card scanners designed for scanning identification cards — from any remotely hosted software application running on Windows Terminal Services or from Citrix environments. With RemoteScan for Insurance Agents, documents can be scanned directly into any custom insurance or document management software package.

“Many insurance agencies use ‘ASP’, or centralized hosted applications,” said Glenn Kreisel, founder of RemoteScan. “With government requirements regarding both confidentiality and storage of customer information, insurance agencies establishing paperless office work flows had a challenge scanning from end user computers. RemoteScan solved this problem. Our software makes it easy for scanned documents to securely become part of an individual personal record.”

RemoteScan for Insurance Agents uses RDP and ICA protocols, and
includes “Pass Through Scanning,” which buffers and compresses images locally then automatically streams the data to application software as bandwidth becomes available.

Additional features of the software include custom templates for configuring scanning options — such as image resolution and area — so that scanned documents can be consistent regardless of what new
brands or models of scanners become available. RemoteScan also comes with a self-configuring installation system which reportedly means that in Terminal Services or Citrix environments, RemoteScan is simple to install.

RemoteScan also allows a single scanner to be shared by other users on a LAN, and converts any scanner into a fully functional network scanner, so one scanner can now meet the needs of an entire small office.

RemoteScan software works with all TWAIN or WIA scanners and is available directly from the company Web site at
