Service Outage

To ensure the continuous improvement of the services we are providing, there will be an number of service outages taking place over the next few weeks. This will only impact very specific areas of OUTSCAN, and disruption will be kept to a minimum.

Maintenance window OUTSCAN February 10-12 (2023-02-10 - 2023-02-12)
We will be performing a scheduled maintenance of OUTSCAN from February 10 to February 12. This affects OUTSCAN, OUTSCAN RC, SWAT, Scale, PCI and HIAB External customers.

During this time, OUTSCAN will be unreachable. Any scheduled scans will run once OUTSCAN is back online.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. For any questions or concerns, please contact us through our helpdesk at
