Capture & IDP Conference 2023 – TWAIN Working Group

It was a great honor for me to represent the @TWAIN Working Group at the Infosource Capture & IDP Conference last week in Chicago. I provided an update to the attendees on “Monetizing TWAIN Direct” with some examples of Use Cases for Generative AI, Conversational AI and Document Processing AI with TWAIN Direct. Then I shared our success with TWAIN Direct Developers Day in Safety Harbor, Florida as well as the TWAIN Direct ISV Showcase Series webinars. Finally, I thanked our valued member companies and encouraged membership to be part of the Digital Transformation AI future with TWAIN!

At the Infosource Capture & IDP Conference last week, I shared some real Artificial Intelligence use cases for TWAIN Direct. I was having some fun with the TWAIN acronym, to get the audiences attention and to fit in with the theme of AI, but I was also very serious about incorporating various techniques of AI including Generative AI, Conversational AI, and Document Processing/Analytics AI to illustrate the strategic importance of TWAIN Direct to the AI ecosystem

One of the TWAIN Working Group highlights I shared at the Infosource Capture & IDP Conference last week, was TWAIN Direct Developers Day (TD-DD). TD-DD was a terrific and energy-filled day of seeing TWAIN Direct in action. In one day software developers were able to get a functioning TWAIN Direct document scanning application working. Some feedback included: “Integration of TWAIN Direct was simple and easy”, “There was a good vibe at Developers Day” and “The partner ecosystem and ISV solutions for TWAIN Direct are really impressive”. We will be hosting another Developers Day in Spring 2024 so please send me a message for more details.

Fitting directly in the theme of my presentation of “Monetizing TWAIN Direct” at the Infosource Capture & IDP Conference last week, was sharing the TWAIN Direct ISV Showcase Series. This ongoing webinar series, hosted by the TWAIN Working Group, included various topics such as cybersecurity, cashflow management, content management, file conversion, capture, and more, featuring our growing ecosystem of software partners and integrations. Please send me a message if you’d like to be included in future TWAIN Direct ISV Showcase Series webinars.

As a non-profit organization, the TWAIN Working Group is supported by our valued member companies. At the @Infosource Capture & IDP Conference last week, many were in attendance including Atalasoft/Kofax, Epson, Kodak Alaris, PFU, P3iD Technologies and Visioneer. Since TWAIN is an open-source specification, our organization is selling nothing and charges no commercial licensing fees. Our only motivation is to provide a solid industry-leading and accepted standard for scanning device-to-software application communication. I’m pleased to share that at the Conference, the state of document scanning with TWAIN Direct has a very bright future and each opportunity means tangible business for one, or many, of our valued member companies.
