Document Scanners and Software
Whether you choose to purchase a desktop document scanner or to use your existing multi-function printer (MFP) to scan files, using the proper equipment for the job is essential. Desktop document scanners are cost-effective, come in a variety of sizes, and speeds and are designed for fast and efficient document scanning tasks. MFPs scan documents as a feature but tend to lack some of the advanced functionality needed for fast and productive document scanning.
Choosing a Document Scanner
Look for these feature when selecting a scanner:
- Auto-feed capability
- Duplex scanning (both sides, single pass)
- Auto deskew (straightens crooked images)
- Auto exposure control (adjusts for poor images)
- Batch scanning and barcode separation
- Warranty & Service Maintenance Options
Purchasing a New Scanner
There are a number of brands and models of document scanners available. It is important to choose a brand that is well-known and a leader in the document imaging industry. Brand names such as Canon, Fujitsu, Kodak, Bell & Howell, etc. are durable and geared toward production-scale document scanning. Choosing the right scanner to fit your particular environment and needs will serve you well for years to come.
