All Bookeye Scanners come with 12 Months Return to Base (RTB) Warranty for Parts and Labour.  This means you will need to arrange for the Scanner to be sent back to the Docuvan Office in Bayswater Victoria for any Warranty claim.

There are Optional Warranty Upgrades available for 1 to 5 Years Extended On-Site Warranty.

These cover Parts & Labour On-Site (we come to you) for the period selected and include the Extended Support below.   Please be aware these options do not cover the travel and accommodation costs associated with the On-Site Support.
We are happy to discuss the options with you, if you are interested.

There is also an Extended Support Package, available for 1 to 5 Years.   This is same day response by Phone, Email and Remote Connection Only.
We work with you to try and identify the problem.

Most issues can be diagnosed remotely and do not require a site visit.  However, if an issue can’t be sorted remotely, then the scanner will need to be returned to the Docuvan Office for further investigation and support.


Docuvan will provide a number of key environmental and IT Setup requirements prior to delivery of your scanner.  This will enable you to place the scanner in a suitable location and connect it to your network once it arrives.
It also means we will be as efficient as possible in getting you up to speed with your new scanner without typical IT delays,
once we come on site or remote connect to it for the setup, configuration and training.

Because the Bookeye has a built-in Linux PC and is managed from a simple interface on a touch screen, it very quick to get up to speed with.

There is also a web interface that can be used for setup and configuration of the scanning profiles from a PC on the same network, if you want to do it that way, using a Poweruser login.
We provide On-Site Training for multiple staff, if required.  This can be broken into Administrator and User Training, if required.

Alternatively, we offer remote training over the internet, using TeamViewer or Microsoft Teams, connected to your scanner, so we can configure the scanner to your needs as part of the training.
This can be more cost effective where travel and accommodation costs are prohibitive.  (Or we are subject to travel restriction such as during covid)

This would require the IT component to be pre-configured so it can be accessed remotely.



We offer a rental service for certain Bookeye Models.
