InspiroScan is a cost effective scanning solution

There are other OMR solutions out there, but most of them need special scanners and pre-printed forms, and that is pricey. With rising costs, many organizations can't afford to maintain and replace aging equipment. This is where InspiroScan can help. InspiroScan uses off-the-shelf scanners, printers, and PCs to do the same job for less cost.

InspiroScan can be customized to fit any OMR need, and the forms can be printed from any laser printer. Forget about having to order special forms ahead of time - just print the forms you need when you need them.

Ever go to fill in a form, but you can't find a number 2 pencil? Not a problem with InspiroScan. Our cutting-edge OMR technology can read marks made with almost any writing tool. Ball points, pencils, red sharpies - it's all the same to InspiroScan

Easy to learn and easy to use

InspiroScan is designed to be easy to use, even for the non-technical. Training is fast; new users can become pro's at the system with an hour of training.

InspiroScan's easy to use interface handles all the scanning tasks for you - no separate scanning software is required. Scan all your forms at once, then use the simple interface to correct any mistakes. When you're done, simply click a button to have all your reports generated in Excel.
