I’ve tried to tell other businesses before about the need for a great scanner. And countless times I’ve heard the response “We are fine – I have a scanner in my printer”.
Well yes, this might be true. I have a multifunction Canon printer with a scanner built in as well. Most rubbish piece of equipment I’ve ever had the misfortune to use! The printer itself – fabulous. Great quality photos, quality documents and the ability to print duplex is awesome. The scanner however, is a different story! Scan a 1 page document – the file size is unbelievable. I tried to scan a 10 page document – and the file size was so enormous it could not be emailed. Beyond frustrating!
Enter the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 Scanner! This bad boy can scan a 30 page, double sided Telstra phone bill in around 1 minute! And the file size is sensible. The files can easily be emailed straight away because the format/compression they have used is excellent. Better yet – the scanned document can be sent straight to your mobile phone or tablet!
Need to scan a business card or drivers license? No problem – stick it straight through. Same goes with those annoying fuel receipts!
So if you are like us, and scan absolutely EVERYTHING, we can highly recommend this scanner and are absolutely convinced it will save you time. For even more organisation, you can file all your scanned documents either into the ScanSnap Organiser software that it comes with, or take it to the next level with Mariner Paperless software. You are welcome.
Why are we all excited?
Fujitsu have just released the IX500’s baby brother – the iX100. It is a 400gm battery powered, portable scanner. It is beautiful!
For those of you who have multiple offices, or a mobile office – or just need to scan on the go, this is the gadget for you. Completely wireless and with the ability to scan straight to your computer, tablet or phone its definitely a must have!
