How Meescan works
Let's get technical
Not your usual self-checkout
Built on the cloud
From the ground up, Meescan is designed as a cloud-based service and is fully network-managed. This unique self-checkout solution provides High Availability with very little local infrastructure.
What does that mean for you? Meescan is easy for libraries to install and easy for patrons to use, and our equipment never requires on-site installation or repairs.
Meescan offers you a comprehensive self-checkout solution for a fraction of the cost.
About the Meescan cloud
The backbone of the Meescan cloud is our distributed data centre with servers all across the world to provide a reliable, secure, and compliant service no matter where your library is located. All components of Meescan communicate with the cloud over secured data connections.
Meescan architecture is built on High Availability standards with scaling, redundancy, and automated load balancing in place. All of our system components are monitored 24/7 and respond autonomously to unexpected events.
Rest assured that the Meescan cloud is always working hard so that your circulation desk staff don't have to.
A cloud above the rest
Prioritizing security and privacy
Libraries prioritize the security and privacy of their database and patrons, so we prioritize it too.
Meescan is built with the highest regard to security and privacy. We don't retain any personal information, as all identifying information is encrypted every step of the way.
Thanks to the high security standards we've always had in place, Meescan is used by a number of organizations and institutions with demanding security protocols.
The Original "Self-checkout in your pocket"
Meescan runs on virtually all mobile devices, allowing patrons to check out items from anywhere in the stacks. Our mobile app uses Bluetooth and geolocation technology, and is a seamless part of the Meescan cloud.
Patrons don't have to worry about queueing up for checkout and can enjoy the privacy of self-checkout from their own device.
Solutions for all security gates
Meescan security stations
Meescan is compatible with EM and RFID security, offering a self-checkout solution that easily integrates your security system with the self-checkout process. Our security stations are part of the Meescan cloud and approve items for desensitization in real-time. Patrons can use the security stations whether they are completing self-checkout from their mobile device or from a kiosk.
Our smart, cloud-connected EM stations are custom-configured to read a combination of item barcode placements across your collection and securely desensitize EM strips in books and media items.
Our smart, cloud-connected RFID stations are compatible with virtually all RFID tag formats, and securely desensitize tags in books and media items.
Meescan speaks many languages
Integrations with other systems
Modern times and a variety of library workflows call for interoperability. Our cloud architecture and talented in-house development team allow us to build custom integrations so your library can use Meescan with other systems when necessary.
User lookups, single sign-on, and interfacing with various credential readers are just a few examples of Meescan's flexibility.
