ISIS (Image and Scanner Interface Specification)

If you're transferring important printed documents to a data capture system, the quality of the scanning is crucial to getting accurate results - without it, they can take longer to process with data having to be input by hand.

ISIS (Image and Scanner Interface Specification) has become the industry standard method of digitising documents, specially developed to store hardcopy documents to electronic archives and giving clear, accurate and secure results with more control over image quality.

It offers maximum compatibility not only with leading document management software such as Documentum, eCopy, Kofax and more, but also with sophisticated IT systems using CITRIX and Terminal Services environments. By introducing a consistent interface across different platforms, ISIS reduces the costs of implementation, training and maintenance, too.

How does it work?

ISIS quality scanning is usually only available on dedicated scanners, but Brother's latest high performance mono laser all-in-one printers have ISIS technology as standard. So as well as producing quality scanning for data capture and allowing documents to be transferred securely, they save money and increase efficiency by saving space, with one machine able to scan, print, copy and fax.


A local building society was looking to update its systems and needed to scan mortgage applications to a new data capture system. With limited space available in the branch, together with the cost implications of installing a separate scanner alongside a printer, fax and copier, the society chose a Brother multifunction machine to do everything they needed efficiently in one machine.

With ISIS-accredited scanning, the quality has been significantly improved and documents can be simply and securely transferred to the data capture system at the press of a button.

And with only one machine rather than several scattered around the office, it saves time as well as space.
