  • Publication number: 20200099797
    Abstract: An image reading apparatus includes a memory, a first transmission unit, a reception unit, and a second transmission unit. The memory stores a read image read by an image reading part. The first transmission unit transmits identification information identifying the image reading apparatus to a mobile terminal. The reception unit receives a transfer request for transferring the read image. The transfer request is received from an image forming apparatus receiving the identification information from the mobile terminal. The second transmission unit transmits the read image stored in the memory to the image forming apparatus. The read image is transmitted after the transfer request is received.
