The optimal scan solution
With the brand name “Scangaroo” Tconsult developed a sophisticated state-of-the-art Solution in close cooperation with Canon Europe, leading supplier of print and scan solutions world-wide. This application is now operational in more than thousand trucks covering multiple countries in Europe.
You can find several suppliers who offer various solutions to scan freight documents. The main challenge however is to offer a professional solution with qualitative high-end devices to achieve the best possible result; which is a readable and clear digital scan. Most of the scan devices offered in the market nowadays are only capable of low resolution and black- and white scanning. This results in illegible scans where critical information can easily get lost.
Also, many trucks are equipped with different brands of board-computers, but lack the high-end scanning hardware to produce the desired end-result. Tconsult can supply companies with both the application that runs on all board-computers, as well as the hardware. After scanning the documents will be saved as picture images or pdf-files. It is also possible to add additional information with the accompanied email, which can be sent to an unlimited amount of email-addresses.
The document can then be archived. Freight documents, CMR, Lieferschein, letter of contents and other important documents which are used during transportation of goods, can be scanned real-time at the moment of loading or unloading. Meaning that the information is instantly available in a digital format to be used by the forwarder or the customer for administration purposes. The forwarder or the customer can process the digital documents real-time and does not have to wait for the driver to hand in the documents in person.
By means of digitalization of the freight documents the information is instantly available for all parties involved in the logistic chain. This results in a logistic chain that is more transparent and a trustable. Scangaroo integrated Solution Scangaroo can be used as an integrated Solution where the application is installed on a board computer. The scanner will be connected with the board computer and the scans will be send from the board-computer. In this case, the board-computer functions as a central computer device which stores the scanned document and can send it to any given address of choice. One advantage of this Solution is that an external device like a mobile phone or tablet computer is not needed to make use of this high-end Solution to digitize and share documents. The Scangaroo can be integrated with every brand of board computer.
