With the progress of digitalisation in all areas of economy and life, devices were needed increasingly to reliably and quickly turn the present mountains of paper documents into bits and bytes. On this market, document scanners quickly became established as space-saving and effective tools that are usually designed as pull-in scanners or pull-through scanners. They became established quickly, in particular in industries with a lot of conventional form and contract management, where legal security still requires a manual signature on paper. In banks, insurances, libraries and energy supplier companies (EVU), document scanners form an indispensable interface to the paper-free office.
Office employees are able to digitise dozens or hundreds of papers per minute and convert them into files automatically today after a brief familiarisation period to get used to the features of a workplace or high-performance document scanner.
This is precisely what causes use of commercial document scanners to fail in the area of self service in a self-service terminal or kiosk system: the "client" or "citizen" is rarely capable and virtually never willing to deal with operating instructions in order to scan documents.
The REINER development team worked with this basis, using its decades of experience in the area of self-service scanners. The REINER engineers have acquired comprehensive know-how in the design of pull-in scanners that must record vouchers reliably in external use. Around the world, thousands of these REINER cheque scanners are facing hard use in direct customer contact, every single day.
With the RS 980 integrated scanner module, REINER consistently takes the next step – from the "cheque" format to "up to letter format". This way, virtually any paper document – also and specifically – in the self-service area can be sent through automated voucher recording.

Why is digital archiving with the REINER RS 980 so very reliable and smart?
- Animated, lit arrows instruct the user intuitively to supply the documents correctly when scanning.
- Diagonally fed documents are aligned automatically.
- Folding edges and creases are smoothed in the best manner for an optimal scanning result.
- High-resolution colour cameras record the front and back at the same time in a single process.
- The document scanner accepts completed forms, confirms input at once and returns the paper to the client or employee.
- The scanner RS 980 recognises original purchasing contracts and certificates and keeps them.
- Incomplete forms are identified as such and returned to the user at once to be completed.
- The RS 980 scanner also accepts partial processes. If the process cannot be completed, it will keep such documents that are complete in themselves. The started process can be continued later. Double input is a thing of the past with this.
- Thanks to the electronic stamp, the scanning result supplies an automated and audit-proof documentation.
What does audit-proof archiving mean for the scanning result of a document scanner?
After scanning is complete, the file is applied with an electronic stamp. From the first working step, the multiformat scanner RS 980 supports the features of audit-proof archiving systems. Information is archived in a way that is retrievable, trackable, unchangeable and protected against falsification. Audit-proof archiving is an essential part of the compliance of information systems. The document scanner RS 980 is a seamless part of this.
What can a document scanner in a self-service terminal do for companies in industry, trade and logistics??
How can EVU (power suppliers) scan paper documents more easily with the pull-in scanner RS 980?
What advantages does digital archiving bring for the customer in the self-service area?
- determines the time and location of document handover or form submission in self-service.
- receives direct feedback concerning the completeness of his information – incomplete forms are returned.
- receives confirmation of delivery.
- profits from fee-less service.
- integrates the document scanner easily into existing systems and work flows.
- saves costs with the automated process of document recording in self-service.
- saves time due to removal of manual recording.
- uses automatic ejection of incomplete forms and reduces the effort at new input.
- achieves a better data quality by correct and complete documents, with correct data, transmitted to the correct recipients.
- optimises its internal processes due to defined and continuous processing steps.
What types of paper documents can be scanned and archived with the integrated scanner module?
The document scanner RS 980 is predestined for processing paper documents and scanning documents of all formats up to letter size:
- bank documents, money transfers, crossed cheques, cheques in payment transactions
- standardised contracts for energy supply companies (EVU) and authorities
- freight documents and delivery notes in transport management
- coupons, lotteries, product requests in trade
- bookings, registration slips in tourism and the hotel industry
- records, personal documents, ballots, etc.
