Why charge by the page?

[shareaholic app=”share_buttons” id=”24867074″]

A question I have been asked a couple of times over the last  few weeks is “Why do Scan software vendors charge by the page when they already charge for the software? To be honest….I do not have a good answer.

I can understand the frustration that customers have with the scan or capture  software vendors. The more I thought about it the more it intrigued me and I have been looking for answers. Customers pay for Software License, they pay for support & maintenance, and then charged by the page once scanned. It seems like a lot of fees, but why? The only answer I can come up with is…because they can!

If you know why, drop me a comment….

  1. Omar, have you ever seen any free or open sourced scanning options that can compete with the commercial vendors? Wouldn’t that shake things up a bit!
