With the world digitizing paper and going virtual, remote scanning has remained business-critical in a number of organizations regardless of their vertical, be it Healthcare, Education, Manufacturing, Public Sector, or Government.

This is a big reason that Fabulatech and Citrix have joined hands to bring you a secure Scanner for Remote Desktop solution in your Citrix environments.

I am pleased to share that Fabulatech’s Scanner for Remote Desktop is now Citrix Ready with the latest versions of Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp. Fabulatech’s Scanner for Remote Desktop is a software that provides a convenient way to scan within your remote desktop session. The application allows redirecting scanners over Citrix ICA protocols to your individual remote session without any headache. The software is easy to install and simple to handle.

The application comprises of the Workstation and Server parts. The Workstation part should be installed on your local computer and the Server part goes to the remote side where you login.


As soon as both parts are installed, Scanner for Remote Desktop creates a virtual remote scanner on the server side and the system accepts it as a hardware equipment plugged into the remote computer. Now every time you login to your session you will have no problem accessing your locally plugged scanner by any remote document scanning software.
