Simplify Scanning: Universal Scanner Driver - Scanning Solutions

Seamless enterprise network scanning software 

Are you tired of unsupported drivers and applications, constant software upgrades, and creating time-consuming workarounds just so users scan documents properly?

Tricerat Simplify Scanning™ is a cost-efficient solution that eliminates these IT headaches. It’s a high-speed scanning solution that excels in server-based, workstation, or virtual and remote environments. 

Remote Scanning Software That’s 10X Faster

Simplify Scanning delivers unmatched speed and efficiency in remote sessions. It is fully compatible with Citrix ICA/HDX, Microsoft RDP, and VMware PCoIP protocols. By communicating only the necessary commands over the virtual channel to ensure scan transmissions reach their destination, it eliminates delays or hang-ups commonly associated with virtual scanning.  

When thoroughly tested in a remote environment through a VMware PCoIP channel, Simplify Scanning performed more than 10X faster than a standard, driver-configured scanning process. See the picture and resources below for details:

Enterprise Scanning Made 10X Faster

Bandwidth has also become a common scanning problem. Scanning large files across a network from a client device can weigh down network speeds and ties up much needed bandwidth.

Whether you’re scanning in black and white, color, or grayscale, Simplify Scanning compresses data to get the job done quickly and reliably, while decreasing network bandwidth consumption

How do we do it? All through the simple installation of our universal scanner driver platform.

How Our Scanning Software Works

Simplify Scanning uses a universal "virtual" scanner driver that queries local scanners for their capabilities, such as resolution and supported paper sizes, forwarding them to be virtualized on the remote server or virtual desktop.

This increases application compatibility by creating a single point with the virtual scanner driver. With configuration and management this simple, you can give users problem-free, remote desktop scanning across your environment.

No more crazy workarounds, just scanning on demand.

How Our Enterprise Scanning Solutions Can Help You

Having tens, hundreds, even thousands of users trying to scan multiple documents across a network is a challenge. At Tricerat, our powerful scanning solutions work to eliminate common scanning problems.

With our universal, “virtual” scanner drivers, you can communicate directly with your TWAIN or WIA drivers and take control over all your scanning capabilities.

Simplify Scanning empowers your IT department, allowing them to:

Here is how Simplify Scanning can save you time and eliminate hassle:

  • Decrease network bandwidth consumption for faster scanning
  • Eliminate driver device management and the need to install drivers
  • Decrease transfer rates (up to 80% faster than USB redirection)
  • Boost scanning speed through file compression
  • Gain complete access over scanner functionality

Being in a remote environment doesn’t mean you have to live in a slower, more complex scanning environment. With Simplify Scanning, you can have a robust scanning environment with faster speeds and fewer headaches.
