Contex’s PageDrop Cloud-Based Mobile App Now Available for IQ Wide-Format Scanners
Contex, which markets wide-format scanning and imaging solutions, announced that it’s making available PageDrop, its cloud-based mobile app, for Contex 44″ IQ 4400 wide-format scanners. Contex first introduced the free mobile app for its IQ 2490 scanners in January 2013. The mobile app bypasses computers and scanning software for single-page scans, enabling smartphone and tablet users to send Contex-scanned documents directly to various desired destinations, including Dropbox, HP ePrint, and email destinations.
Contex also reports that as part of its current “Spring Savings” promotion, it’s offering discounts of up to 40 percent on the IQ 4490, as well as on the HD 5450, and HD Ultra i3690S scanners. Each scanner comes with a stand, NextImage software, and a multiple-year onsite warranty. This promotion lasts through June 30.
“We first developed PageDrop to address customer demand for a single-page mobile scanning and distribution solution,” commented Steve Blanken, general manager for Contex Americas. “The response to PageDrop has been incredibly encouraging, and we’re excited to introduce even more Contex customers to the app.”
Contex says IQ 4400 users can now benefit from a combination of the latest in scanning and mobile technology. Its Gigabit Ethernet with xDTR2 helps IQ 4400 series scanners quickly convert scans into PDFs, and expedite network and cloud sharing. PageDrop uses Contex-specific QR codes, PageDrop Servers, and a patent-pending security feature to securely scan and transfer images. The application further elevates the scanning process by storing preferences, allowing users to easily send scanned documents to the specified location.
