Scanning Pens Opens Office In Mumbai!

We’re making a move to Mumbai! Scanning Pens is ecstatic to announce we’re opening an office in Mumbai, putting Scanning Pens employees in four continents around the world. By setting up a satellite in India we can start working towards improving literacy rates and English comprehension across the country. Our support throughout Asia will continue to improve over the coming years, bringing assistive tech to those that need it.

 

Our new employees in India are a welcome addition to the team, bringing an approach to every aspect of our company. We can’t wait to see how students respond to the reading support our pens can provide them.

 

Scanning Pens has had a huge year since winning the Exporter of the year at Bett awards. A well-earned victory gained through our talented staff’s hard work that we’ve continued to prove the right choice. Scanning Pens has brought the ReaderPen and ExamReader to south and central America for the first time ever over the past few months, while continuing to grow everywhere else. Our studies have helped us understand that early intervention is one of the best ways to improve reading difficulties, allowing Scanning Pens to develop a future strategy for young students.

 

Our CEO and co-founder, Jack Churchill, had this to say about our expansion into India:

“As we grow, Scanning Pens spreads awareness about the struggles that people with reading difficulties face and what kind of support they can get. We believe completely in the love of literacy and what reading independence can do for people’s confidence. We hope to someday show the millions of struggling readers their potential, and our Mumbai office is another great step towards that goal.”

The ExamReader highly commended in the Digital Devices category at the Bett 2019 Awards

The ExamReader was recently highly commended in the Digital Devices category at the Bett 2019 Awards after over three years of being on the market. The pen has been continuously optimised and updated and this accolade is just a confirmation of Scanning Pens’ hard work.  

The Bett awards, produced in association with Besa, are considered the leading global education technology awards. Having UK Education Minister Damian Hinds attend the ceremony reinforces the respect this accolade has.

The ExamReader is a user-friendly scanner that reads printed text aloud. It’s the perfect replacement for a human reader, helping build the confidence and independence of any student. Scanning Pens are working hard to break down the barriers in exams and around dyslexia and other reading difficulties so that students are able to reach their full potential.

At a recent conference Jack Churchill, the CEO & Co-founder of Scanning Pens, highlighted the importance of dyslexia assessments and exam accommodations to show the depth of each students’ knowledge.

He said “The point of exams is to ensure students are test on their knowledge of a given subject, not their ability to read. Assistive Technology like the ReaderPen and ExamReader can enable students to read exam questions themselves which develops independent and confident people fit for work”

Throughout 2019 Scanning Pens will continue to push against the barriers people face in their exams, with huge changes coming to the ExamReader soon.
