New Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 displays the ‘smarts’
Fujitsu Canada’s ScanSnap iX1500, a new flagship colour duplex model, joins the Fujitsu ScanSnap series of document scanners.
The ScanSnap Series converts most office documents into PDFs, searchable PDFs, Word and Excel documents and more.
iX1500 users can complete end-to-end processes with “one touch” of the new large, 4.3-inch colour touch screen. Basic tasks such as setup and Wi-Fi configuration, checking scanning statuses and choosing save-to destinations are easy, even for first-time users with the touch screen’s use of simple visual icons, the company notes.
Up to 30 pre-configured profiles can be made, optimized for each user’s workflow. Default profile icons come preset “out of the box,” representing popular functions such as sharing documents, managing business trip expenses and sending attachments with email, to name but a few.
A single unit can also be shared among multiple users in an office, and identified by different icon colours, saving information to specific destinations based on individual user preference.
The iX1500 features ScanSnap Cloud, which connects to your favourite cloud service – without needing a computer or mobile device – to manage your documents, receipts, business cards, and photos. You can create pre-configured shortcuts on the touch screen to send scans to a specific cloud service, or use ScanSnap Cloud’s intelligent sorting feature to deliver scans to the correct cloud service automatically. Supported cloud services include Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Expensify, Google Drive, Google Photos, Hubdoc, LedgerDocs, OneDrive, Rocket Matter, SecureDocs, shoeboxed.com and TALK.
Users can now also manage, edit, and utilize various types of scanned paper with the all-new ScanSnap Home interface. Users can import data from existing ScanSnap software to ScanSnap Home with the iX500, iX100, S1300i, S1100i and SV600.
