BUILD SCANNING INTO YOUR APPLICATIONS

Seamlessly embed scanning directly into your software, including browser-based applications. ScanTools Plus Link SDK runs behind the scenes, allowing your end users to stay focused on the application and making the OMR data collection fast and easy. ScanTools Plus Link SDK provides a more accurate and efficient method for collecting data from paper documents.

SAMPLE PROGRAMS

The SDK includes sample programs to help you in developing your own application. The QuickStart Desktop sample shows how to find and configure a scanner.
