Amidst the prevalence of Android devices all over the world, more and more people opt to carry just their portable devices rather than their bulky laptops. Smartphones are lightweight and convenient. Their built-in cameras can take and store images, seemingly replacing scanners. However, the quality of scanners significantly outmatches that of smartphone cameras. Moreover, camera images do not provide indexing functionality, making it difficult for later searches.
In this regard, Plustek has developed solutions to meet the needs of different groups, including field personnel that are seldom in the office but are required to scan files to the cloud or the company, as well as Android-based system/platform integrators.
