Cloud-based scanning app released

April 11, 2014

ScanIQ has released a new cloud-based scanning application to make sending and receiving documents easy for drivers while on the road.

One-Touch can also connect to “real” scanners to print high-quality scans.

“We’ve listened to customers and delivered a high-octane product at an affordable monthly cost. The ability of drivers to take control of paperwork from inside the cab allows for increase in efficiencies while reducing costs,” said Arno Franchi, president of ScanIQ. “Now smaller fleets can afford the benefits of telematics in their vehicles and the efficiencies it brings.”

The solution provides a powerful back-end console that allows dispatchers to track their fleet along with the ability to send paperwork and messages to each driver.

Drivers simply load the document into the scanner and press the scan button on their Android smart device. The scanned file destination is preset by the office using the ‘One-Touch’ console and can be sent in either PDF or TIFF formats to multiple emails, fax or FTP servers.

“We’ve added two other features that always came up as ‘a nice to have’ for companies to be more efficient,” Franchi said. “First, our customers wanted the option to send scanned paperwork to a fax machine, and secondly, have paperwork sent directly to the driver while on the road.”

One-Touch has the ability to simultaneously email and fax documents. The fax button asks the driver to enter in the fax number. After the paperwork has been sent, the app resets to default and subsequent transmissions will only go to the assigned e-mail addresses. The fax number is logged in the dispatch console back at the office for verification.

The second feature enables the office to send documents to the driver for them to print out, including e-manifests, over-size permits and over-weight permits.

Because of strict security practices, the driver must attach the authorized printer to the device. Once the device is paired with the printer, the file will be allowed to print. Another security feature is all documents are never saved on the mobile device.
