- Scanning Tools
- Scanner Configurator
- This page gives a way to search for scanners are compatible with the Kofax Adrenaline and
VRS software used by ImageNow in document scanning.
First, choose the manufacturer from the drop down list provided, and then the scanners
which are produced by that company are listed in the Scanner drop down list. Choosing one
of those options will bring up a list of "certified combinations". Some scanners will work
with both Adrenaline or VRS, and some with only one or the other.
- Please note that even if the scanner is certified for Adrenaline or VRS by Kofax, it may not work
with ImageNow. ImageNow requires the use of ISIS drivers, so be sure the scanner supports ISIS
drivers. A scanner that only supports TWAIN drivers will not work with ImageNow, even if it is
certified by Kofax.
