3 Steps to Successful Mass Deployments

No matter what your deployment looks like, you want to make sure you get it done right. So, you’re looking to take all the precautions you need when getting set up. With these instructions and our support, you’ll know exactly what you need to do to successfully deploy your new Ambir scanners.


1. Understand the Scope of the Solution

The first step in implementing a mass deployment is figuring out exactly what type of hardware you are looking to deploy. Is it all one type of scanner or a mix of different models? Once you have this information, you can start looking for the proper drivers to deploy your hardware.

The next step is knowing what your users are going to do with the hardware. Will they be using the scanners exclusively with a 3rd party TWAIN compliant application like an EMR or Practice Management system? Do the end users need another scanning application in order to scan locally? Having this information will let you know what to install.

Scanning into TWAIN compliant application: If they are scanning exclusively into a TWAIN compliant application, you’ll just need to install the hardware driver.

Scanning locally: If they’re scanning locally, you may need to install a scanning application such as AmbirScan.

2. Determine the Size of Your Deployment

Are you looking to deploy one or two scanners or one or two hundred?

Smaller deployment: If you are deploying a smaller number of scanners, you’ll want to handle set up at those few workstations and go to this link to download and install your drivers and software via .exe.

Larger deployment: If you are handling a larger deployment of scanners and typically do a push install, we recommend using an MSI. MSI’s are great for doing push deployments and especially silent push deployments because they respond well to the standard msi commands like commands like msiexec/iC:\»ambirsample» .msi /qn. While this allows for greater flexibility, MSI’s don’t include all required dependencies for the software to run properly. You can find all of Ambir MSIs here. Simply fill out the form to immediately receive a login to be able to view all available MSI’s and the required dependencies.
