meeScan was recently showcased in the American Libraries Magazine. The article, written by Carrie Smith on July 19, 2017, features library staff time saving technologies and new labor-saving services.
"Self-checkout is an established way to save staff time, but it often comes with a large investment in hardware and software. Bintec Library Services has introduced meeScan, a mobile-based self-checkout system.
Patrons download an app (available for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry) onto their smartphone that, based on geolocation, identifies the library branch they are in. After scanning or entering their library card information, patrons scan an item’s barcode to check it out from anywhere in the library."

The American Library Association’s Annual Conference and Exhibition took place June 22–27 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Each year ALA brings together hundreds of librarians and library staff, educators, authors, publishers, and exhibitors for a chance to discuss the evolving role of libraries.
The Bintec Team was there showcasing new meeScan features to improve user experience and enhance the service to library patrons of all ages. For a "look back" on ALA Annual 2017 and a look ahead on future conferences and events, visit https://2017.alaannual.org.

Did you know? In the past, meeScan required activation after being downloaded and installed on the user’s device. The activation was done either by scanning an activation barcode or by manual entry of the 8-digit library activation code.
Now, meeScan is automatically activated based on the user's location. The new 'Automatic Activation' feature performs system activation at the beginning of each session. This means that patrons downloading the meeScan app for the first time will not need to enter or scan an activation code. They simply enter their user credentials and can start checking out items. The process is seamless for the user.
When visiting other meeScan enabled libraries users will be able to use the system without the need to re-activate. meeScan automatically knows where they are!
If you would like to learn more about this and other meeScan features please contact us or email our customer service team at email@example.com.
