WideTEK Scan Wizard
Scanning Software for WideTEK scanners
ScanWizard is a simple and intuitive user interface for your Scan2Net® scanner, which can be accessed using any standard web browser, an external HD touchscreen or the touchscreen on the scanner itself. ScanWizard is operating system independent and requires no installation of any kind on the user´s client PC since it is built right in to the scanner. Once your network administrator has assigned the scanner an IP address and installed it in your network, any user can access the scanner and operate it using ScanWizard.
ScanWizard can used together with the (optional) PrintWizard functionality to make your scanner and any connected printers into an image management center, better than just a printer-centered MFP. Using ScanWizard with PrintWizard allows you to define your workflow with your own scanner, printer and folding parameters. You can control where your work goes -- to which folders and how your work is output -- on which peripheral devices.
Batch Scan Wizard is a different, optional software. BSW is installed on a PC. The scanner is always installed as a network scanner (it does NOT connect via a cable to the PC.) The software then runs the scanner through your browser. (You open the browser and then type in the IP address of the scanner). BSW software is designed for production scanning. Multiple jobs, multiple index fields, auto file naming and more features that are needed when scanning large numbers of documents with additional requirements. More information on BSW is here.
Scan Wizard comes installed on the scanner itself. This free software is used to run the scanner through the scanner touch screen or with the Touch Screen Monitor. ScanWizard is designed for one scan at a time, not production file naming, indexing, multiple folder output and the other features of BSW. You can save your settings of course, but each file is a "save as" type of scan.
