Sharp Application Integration Module (AIM)
Whether from customizable assist lists or entering information on the fly, Sharp's flexible Application Integration Module (MX-AMX1) allows you to add information or metadata to your scanned documents. This enables you to instruct selected applications how to handle your scanned document, allowing you to take control of your document workflow right from your IMAGER's touch-screen panel, thereby automating tasks that once took several steps.
AIM (Application Integration Module) is available on most of Sharp's current models. This allows data describing the image file to be entered at the MFP's touch-screen panel and sent along with the image as an XML file. It is then automatically routed to a folder or integrated with a third-party application.
Metadata can be linked with application programs such as fax servers, Document Management applications, Workflow applications and encryption servers to create an advanced document solution environment.
Note: Application Integration Module requires that scanning will be enabled
