Productivity

Greatly Reduced Development Time

It can take months for you to become familiar with the TWAIN specification and build a TWAIN plugin from scratch. With Dynamic Web TWAIN, you can implement TWAIN in days. With most applications, you can implement TWAIN support with no more than a few lines of code.

Browsers Change Often

Apple, Google, Microsoft, and other browser developers are constantly updating their browsers. You can rest assured that Dynamsoft will keep Dynamic Web TWAIN up to date so your application can continue to run smoothly.

Even Greater Time Savings
