We make documents digital.
To render your scanning, sorting and evaluation processes as efficient, secure and sustainable as possible, that is our promise to you. And the demand we place on ourselves.
Why have we been achieving that for more than 30 years now?
Because our focus is on quality. Always. And unconditionally. That applies to our scanners and OMR. That applies to our service. And that also applies to our employees.
Does that make us the best in our branch?
We don’t ask ourselves this question. What we do ask ourselves daily is this: what can we do today to make your document management more efficient, safer and still more sustainable tomorrow. For that is what quality means for us. And safety for you.
‘Made in Germany’ is more than merely a promise of quality. It is a guarantee of security for our customers and partners, a guarantee that is economic, organizational and procedural. And not leastly ethical.
Johannes Boerboom, DATAWIN CEO
Whether hardware or software, whether scanner or optical mark reader: our products are 100 percent Made in Germany.
We design and manufacture them exclusively at our company headquarters in Ergolding – many of them starting from the raw materials. We procure parts and components that we do not produce within our corporate group from certified suppliers via inner-European supply chains. Thus high-precision quality devices emerge in the best possible German engineering tradition: just document scanners and OMR Made in Germany. Our high level of vertical integration thereby enables us to maintain consistent quality control in all stages of production.
Quality development must precede the quality product: this is also carried out exclusively at our company headquarters in Ergolding. Whereby we not only concentrate here on superlative performance, robust design free of wearing parts or holding maintenance expenses to a minimum;
as innovation leader in the branch we optimize the service life of our scanners and OMR by means of intelligent development.
Our medium-sized company was founded in 1991; for more than 30 years now we have been holding our own against international corporations and setting first-class products against supposedly more reasonably priced mass-produced goods.
Why does that work out? Because we are good at what we do. Because we know more about resource-efficient and sustainable document management than most of our competitors. And because we share this knowledge unconditionally with our customers and partners.
Our employees – from development through sales – are among the most competent and experienced scanner and OMR experts in the world. We place this expertise at your disposal.
If a company purchases a production scanner, it has enormous amounts of documents to cope with. And if that is the case, it cannot afford to sustain longer downtimes. We therefore make sure that, if the case should arise, you receive competent help in the shortest possible time: be it on the phone or on site at your company.
We not only operate with helpdesks or external hotlines. With our support system, you actually talk to our technicians, developers or to our development management. And thanks to our location in the heart of Europe and to our inner-European supply chains, either one of our employees or an appropriate spare part quickly arrives at your site, as required.
DATAWIN’s development, design, manufacturing, marketing and service have all been certified since 2007 by ISO 9001. This means that the processes and work sequences we have elaborated are suited not only to guarantee the quality of our products and services, but also to continually refine and develop them further in terms of an ongoing improvement process. Our certified risk management enables us to quickly identify and cope with possible risks.
For all quality-relevant activities, this guarantees for you on the one hand, that both those responsible as well as the methods of procedure are unequivocally defined. And on the other hand, that our employees truly live quality orientation on a daily basis.
Firmly anchored in our canon of values are our aims of handling our planet with care, conserving its resources and elaborating our production processes and services in a sustainable manner: that is why our environmental management will be ISO 14001-certified in 2022. That means that we are aware of our ecological footprint and are constantly working on reducing it.
To do so, we are continually fine-tuning our parameters: we produce in Germany, adhering to the strictest environmental protection regulations. We procure raw materials by means of the shortest possible delivery routes. We construct our scanners and OMR so that they are energy-efficient, long-lasting and free of wearing parts to the greatest possible extent. And we develop smart upgrade and refurbishing concepts to additionally lengthen the service life of our scanners.
OMR special development halves counting time of votes
In the Bavarian State Parliament, more than 200 members vote on all Bavarian laws. The exact voting results must be available within a few minutes. We perform the count with an OMR special development of DATAWIN. The mark reader, which has been optimized for our processes and voting cards, and its evaluation software are user-friendly, perform reliably and reduce the processing time of a vote by up to 50% compared with earlier solutions from other manufacturers. We are also very satisfied with DATAWIN's order processing and customer proximity.
Evaluate exams and examinations fascinating fast
Munich University of Applied Sciences is one of the largest universities for applied sciences in Germany. Over 18,000 students write their exams and examinations here at the end of each semester. Evaluating and correcting them on time is a mammoth task. That's why we use DATAWIN optical mark readers and evaluation software. The devices work fascinatingly fast and contain excellent mechanics. An exam with 220 students used to take 12 hours of correction work. With the help of the DATAWIN OMR, it now takes just under 2 hours - including the import of results into our IT system.
Counting supervisory board elections, general meetings, works council elections and general meetings quickly and cost-efficiently
HVBEST Event-Service GmbH is a leading full-service provider for supervisory board elections, general meetings, works council elections and general meetings. For our customers, we count many votes and elections. In the past, this was done with mobile data capture devices, among other things. In order to become faster, less error-prone and more cost-efficient, we were looking for a user-friendly automated solution. We found this in the DATAWIN HEMERA S high-performance scanner. The scanner, which is individually adapted to our needs, processes and digitizes up to 25,000 different documents per hour. DATAWIN's high product quality, competent service and special flexibility speak for themselves, as do the people with whom we have been working successfully for years.
Custom OMR evaluates questionnaires - without the need for maintenance
With over 80,000 visitors annually, the Natural History Museum in Neuchâtel is one of the most popular museums in its region. As a special highlight and interactive element, we enrich special exhibitions with visitor quizzes. Visitors can then answer knowledge questions about the exhibition on the basis of a questionnaire during the tour. The evaluation of the questionnaires takes place via a specially designed device consisting of a simple door mailbox and a DATAWIN OMR installed on the back. Visitors see their results on a screen within seconds and can compare their results with those of previous visitors. We are very happy with this solution: it is fun for our visitors and works flawlessly - without any need for maintenance or downtime.
Express archiving of large volumes of confidential documents
As a financial services company, TELIS FINANZ AG manages millions of contracts for its clients. These must be digitally archived in defined time windows. For a particularly time-critical archiving project, we commissioned DATAWIN to scan over 80,000 documents within a few hours, archive them and deliver them to us on CD. The original documents were to be captured 100 percent loss-free and in a predefined sequence, and then destroyed. The entire process had to comply with data protection guidelines for confidential documents. Although our request was on short notice and the time frame was tight, DATAWIN left no doubt at any time that all documents would be available to us in digital form on time. The image resolution of the scans is impressive, and DATAWIN's service exemplary: technically, organizationally, and not least in terms of personal contact.
Reliable hardware for capturing and evaluating betting slips
As a supplier to Europe's most successful betting providers, we offer our customers several options for accepting bets at their outlets, including at the counter and at the terminal. For the counter, almost all of them use the DATAWIN OMR 19E. The device is considered a classic for betting slips, is used thousands of times worldwide and is valued for its high capturing and operating reliability. In order to be able to realize this capturing and evaluation quality at the terminal as well, we commissioned DATAWIN with the development of a slip reader for integration into terminals. The result is the OMR 23E built-in mark reader. It is 100% compatible with the counter device and is just as efficient and reliable. The compatibility of the devices makes handling much easier for both our customers' employees and their customers.
Special development sorts documents and prepares enveloping
rcDDM GmbH was one of Germany's market leaders in digital and classic document management. In order to be able to perform the output management of such companies resource-efficiently, whose document volume did not justify the use of large inserting lines, we were looking for a way to prepare the manual insertion of documents automated and in accordance with data protection. Since the market did not offer a standard solution, we commissioned DATAWIN with a new development that would offer maximum sorting security. In just 6 months, DATAWIN developed a prototype that processes up to 5,000 documents per hour, reliably recognizes the documents to be bundled for the respective shipment based on specifications in QR code, barcode or text, and separates them by colored separator sheets depending on the addressee. The device detects faulty documents, outputs them to a separate sorting tray and informs the user via touchscreen about the type of error and appropriate corrective measures.
