Elmhurst,IL, February 3, 2016—Ambir Technology, an industry leader in digital capture and document management solutions, announces all models of its latest generation sheet-fed document and card scanners are now compatible with Apple Inc.’s Macintosh OS X operating system through a driver download.

Customers simply download Image Capture Architecture (ICA) drivers for their scanner(s) at at no charge. Scanners are then compatible with any ICA-compliant Macintosh Operating System (OS) X scanning application, including the OS X built-in scanning application Image Capture and third-party applications using the ICA standard. The scanners will work with the majority of web browser-based scanning applications for scanning to cloud-hosted Electronic Medical Records and document management software.  

“We strive to broaden the inclusivity and applicability of our solutions and products,” said Mike O’Leary, CEO of Ambir Technology. “A number of professional practices and businesses are Mac OS-based. Starting today, they will have new choices to help address growing needs for information capture. Our latest generation of scanners are easy to use and maintain, sleek and compact, provide top-notch image quality, and promise increases in productivity and efficiency for both office and mobile applications.”

Introduced at HIMSS15 Annual Conference & Exhibition last April, Ambir’s latest generation scanners consist of four models: 

·         Ambir ImageScan Pro 490 ix Scanner duplex document and card scanner. It scans both sides of a document in about 10 seconds.

·         Ambir ImageScan Pro 687ix Scanner duplex card scanner for scanning two-sided identification cards, scanning both sides of a card in approximately 3 seconds.
