Mobile scanning service Qipit, which launched three years ago as Click2Scan, is closing its free online copy operation. Previously it’s enabled customers to copy documents and whiteboards if they take a photo and send it to the web for storage, faxing, emailing as a PDF or publication.
Qipit now says on-device processing is enabling them to increase the speed of their service – and has led them to change their business model. In the future Qipit will be focussing on smartphone applications and technology for businesses. As a result, the free Qipit online service no longer accepts new registrations. There’ll be no further image processing from 9th November, with the entire service being taken offline on 6th December. [Qipit blog]
