Up to now, we have had to circulate and ultimately store them in their hard copy form.Since the existing EDM systems were departmental and could not handle drawings, a new system was needed. The authority went to openEU tender for a pilot system. The winning solution, Anite@Work from Anite Public Sector, went live in January 2002 and has proved to behighly successful, thanks in no small measure to the Colortrac 3680e scanner.ACTion Imaging Solutions is the manufacturer of Colortrac &ANAtech LF scanners and software. We are dedicated to thedevelopment of digital image capture and image processingsolutions for colour and monochrome applications which includegraphic arts reproduction, architecture and construction,engineering (CAD), Geographical Information Systems (GIS),Electronic Document Management, and Facilities Management.Wide Format DigitalScanning SolutionsCorporateIn-house ReproAccording to Jonathan Middleton, "The make of scanner initially supplied proved to be quitetroublesome. So much so, we were starting to lose faith in wide format scanners in general andthe viability of the pilot was being questioned. We had to find a make of scanner that we couldCopyshopsrely on. And that is when Anite supplied the Colortrac scanner." He adds, "It has been veryreliable. We have had only one problem, that's all. The service response was more or lessimmediate, within three or four hours and we have not seen anyone else since. And it's beengoing all day, every day, for about a year now. In that time we've scanned about 20,000Graphic ArtsRepro BureauGIS Mappingdocuments, a mixture of black and white/full colour/16 colour in sizes ranging from A4 to A0.“People are amazed at the qualityand ease of use."Jonathan Middleton, Principal Development Control Officer"The Colortrac has restored our faithin wide format scanning."Jonathan Middleton, Principal Development Control Officermj impressions goes the (24) extra miles with a Colortrac wide-format scanner.High OpticalResolutionFine Art ReproAnimationNon DestructiveArchivingAt a very conservative estimate, mj digital's Colortrac 36" wide-format colour scanner has handled 24 miles of documents since it was installed in 1997. That must besome sort of record for a scanner! mj digital is part of mj impressions, which provides high quality creative design, print and copying for a wide range of prestigeclients, including financial institutions, architects, construction companies, government departments, and petrochemical companies, from the company's offices in theCity, West End and Clerkenwell.Luke Storey has been operating the Colortrac scanner for a number of years. He says, "At present, we use the system mainly for scanning hard copy architecturalplans. On average we scan about 200 A1 plans a week, with peaks of over 50 in a day. But we also use it for doing high resolution scans in-house using CopyWorksPlus. We have found the quality to be really very good. It is versatile enough to be used as a repro scanner." Reliability has been excellent. Luke notes, "I've used it aslong as I've been here, that's nearly three years. It has never broken down, never had to be taken away and I have never had to call an engineer to it." It has beengenuinely easy to use, too. He adds, "Just insert the drawing: everything else is controlled from the program. Just tell it to scan, that's all.""We couldn't have done itwithout the Colortrac scanner."Mark Robertson, joint founder and Director"We would choose Colortracagain, without hesitation."Mark Robertson, joint founder and DirectorUK Office • Kings Hall • St Ives Business Park • St IvesHuntingdon • Cambridgeshire • PE27 4WYT +44 (0)1480 464618 • F +44 (0)1480 464620US Office • 17301 West Colfax Avenue • Suite #165Golden •Colorado • 80401-4891 • USAT +1 (303) 973 6722 • F +1 (303) 973 7092E info@action-imaging.com • W http//www.action-imaging.comSCAN•ARCHIVE•RASTER EDIT•COPY•PRINTwww.action-imaging.com
