Ambir 2019: A Year in Review

2019 was a huge year of growth at Ambir. Not only did we expand our product line by three new products, but we grew exponentially as a workforce as well. This theme of growth is one we are looking to bring into the next decade, with the goal of continuing to innovate and find new solutions for our valued customers.

This review is just a peek at the hard work put in throughout the course of the year reflected in new products, content creation across multiple platforms and employee milestones. A number of important moments have happened in 2019, and we’ve chosen some of our most notable highlights to share.

Let’s take a more in-depth look at our year:



With our first of many product launches for the year, we had quite the busy start to 2019. On January 22, the nScan 700gt was released. With an innovative design and compact size, the nScan 700gt is durable, portable and versatile, allowing for productivity wherever you go. The included AmbirScan software makes scanning and locating documents simple and straightforward while quick scanning through both ADF feed and front and rear sheet loading sides allows for increased scanning options and flexibility.

In July, we launched the AmbirScan Business Card Reader software. With this launch, we improved the way you organize your card collection and contacts. This software is available with every model of our current line of scanners. Gone are the days of having a wallet or desk draw full of disorganized business cards. Forget shuffling through stacks when looking for a forgotten phone number; AmbirScan Business Card Reader does the data entry for you, giving you more time and less hassle.

Most recently, this month, we released our wand scanner, the TravelScan Pro 300. As our most portable scanner yet, it’s great for individuals on the go and creatives who need to scan and digitize unconventionally sized images. Instead of feeding files into the scanner, the TravelScan Pro 300 moves across the top of the document, allowing it to capture documents of a variety of shapes and sizes. The optical sensor and wheels make scanning as easy as a swipe.



This year, we made an effort to produce more blog content. As the year died down, we were posting almost once a week. You all have seemed to enjoy our increased content as well, as our numbers exceeded previous year’s total unique views. It is important to us that we continue sharing valuable information that is helpful to customers across a diverse range of industries. To see what others have found useful, check out our most loved blogs below.

This year with more office space and bandwidth, we started filming more in-house videos. We ramped up our video creation schedule and saw some exciting growth in our views. Our top two videos were “nScan 690gt Duplex ID Card Scanner with AmbirScan” and “Increase productivity with AmbirScan Business Card Software”. With the goal of educating potential customers, we hoped to make clear and informative videos that would answer any questions someone may have about our products. We will definitely be continuing our video production and can’t wait to share our full collection once its complete.

We had three employees celebrate 15 years at Ambir in 2019. These years of dedication and hard work did not go unnoticed, and these employees have been pivotal in the development of Ambir as a company. Additionally, we added seven new employees across multiple departments and grew our team at our Chicago headquarters. This mix of fresh perspectives and existing in-depth industry knowledge resulted in great collaboration and inspiration. Whether it was a website redesign or working on a product launch, our teams joined forces and created something pretty special.


Ambir in the News
