There are a lot of options out there for office scanners, even when you look at a single leading brand like Fujitsu. Still, if you want to get the most out of your scanner or your organization has unique needs that require high-volume document digitization, the newest and most feature-rich scanners are the ones you look to for upgrades that really help your efficiency. This is especially important in industries that rely on digital documents and secure archival.
Today’s most advanced scanners are those that embraced two key features keeping them ahead of the pack. If you are currently shopping for a new scanner, you need to be on the lookout for these efficiency multipliers while you shop.
From Desktop To Cloud
Cloud data storage has become the key to many companies’ digital archival operations because it eliminates the need for a physical data center that can cost an excessive amount while offering data indexing and search tools that make it easy to find just the records you need. The cutting-edge FI-8170 scanner is one of the first models designed for direct cloud integration, allowing you to scan documents directly to your cloud archives. It is also designed for high-volume operations, making it easy to move swiftly through document intake no matter how many pages you are handling.
These features are essential for organizations that frequently receive high-volume paper records from external sources. Make it easy to find just what you need with automated tools, and cut out the hours of sorting through paper files by hand or the trouble of dedicating administrative time to building your cloud archive manually.
To make direct-to-cloud scanning work, new scanners like the IX-1400 have to be able to work with all of today’s top tools for archival. That means they need to be able to work in common file formats ranging from .jpeg to Microsoft Word documents. High-fidelity scanning and image recognition tools make it easy to translate images of text into editable documents you can access with cloud editing tools, something that is used to take a dedicated staff member and customized conversion software.
When you can set things up to send your files right where your team needs them to be, it’s a lot easier to get work done. That’s exactly what the new generation of scanners has set out to do, and these two entries are extremely successful. All you have to do is set up your integration and you are ready for one-touch scanning with an efficient feed for high-volume projects.
Is It Time To Upgrade?
There are a lot of great reasons to get the most out of your current equipment investment, but office electronics are also known for their limited lifespan. If this year is the time for your office’s scanner upgrade, check out the new high-volume scanning options you can bring in to reduce inefficiencies in your workflow and maybe, just maybe, put an extra year or two between upgrades. There is a difference between just getting a scanner and getting one made for volume, after all.
