No PC required
Canon has introduced a new standalone network scanner for capturing and feeding documents into business workflows.
Suitable for a variety of applications, from a back office or HR department to customer service points within retail or banking, the imageFORMULA ScanFront 400 has scan speeds of up to 45 pages per minute; supports a wide range of document sizes, including A4, A5, envelopes, business cards and passports; and features a time-saving 60-sheet feeding mechanism with ultra-sonic double feed detection.
The scanner connects directly to a network and is operated via a 10.1in touchscreen with no need for a PC or additional software. In just a few simple steps, scans can be routed to a combination of email, network folders, FTP, USB, fax, printer or to a user’s own workflows via customisable job buttons.
Customised metadata index files can be created and sent with every scan for easy document classification and integration into existing back office systems and workflows. In addition, there is a web application SDK for system integrators.
Free batch scanning software
PFU and Fujitsu are opening up the world of professional batch scanning to all businesses by offering free Paper Stream Capture Lite software to users of Fujitsu SP series documents scanners. Featuring an ergonomic, touch compatible user interface, PaperStream Capture Lite enables companies to fine-tune their document workflow and batch scanning at every stage of the process. New features include detailed scanning routine information and profile pictograms for document capture; and a ‘browse view’ that lets users confirm scanned images during scanning.
Having recently increased the scanning speed of the Xerox DocuMate 6440 to 60 pages per minute, Xerox has now enhanced the DocuMate 3125 with the addition of a 50-page automatic document feeder and faster scan speed of 40ppm and 70 images per minute in duplex. Suitable for small and medium-sized businesses and home workers, the A4 scanner enables organisations to digitise business-critical information and automatically route it to the correct department/employee. Users can save documents to a desktop or send them directly to the cloud with just one click.
