The unique iFORMation PenStation™ has made deployment of digital pens and their communication to other systems as simple as hooking up a fax machine, and has allowed rapid deployment of digital pen technology to many locations in a short period of time. With the simple effort for PenStation™ setup, ongoing support costs are also greatly reduced. There are numerous organizations that are much more comfortable using the PenStation™ to transfer information to other applications and systems rather than connecting the digital pen to a computer and uploading the information. The PenStation™ results in drastically reduced support costs and this is critical for organizations that have staff in many locations and no immediate access to local technical support or cannot effectively train staff to transfer data via a computer. Many companies have realized the value of the simple to use yet advanced PenStation™ communications device. There is no requirement for a system administrator to install this foolproof device and its status can be monitored remotely.
The compact PenStation™ eliminates the need of a computer to send data from remote locations to the centralized servers. All PenStations™ are centrally managed in iFORMation™ Portal.
The popularity of the PenStation™ is largely based on its ease of use and the robust time tested software supporting it.
In order to transmit data from the Penstation™ to the server, the only action required by the user is to dock the digital pen into the pen cradle attached to the PenStation™. After the pen data is downloaded to the PenStation™, the data will then be transmitted automatically to the server and the status will be shown on the LCD display.
