IST API purchases all licenses through our contract with Perceptive Software, Inc. (PSI) for the best pricing, including scanner station licenses. Customers provide IST with a chart string that the license purchase is charged to.
Departments purchase equipment such as scanners based on IST API and vendor recommendations. Brand/model recommendations are based on the Imagine team’s experience with the product. Although other hardware might also work, alternative selections should be verified with the vendor, PSI, and with the Imagine team prior to purchase. When purchasing a scanner consider the number of documents you process per year. Please check the Getting Started section on this wiki for the current list of Recommended Scanners.
