Canon Extends Automation to Workgroup

“The Canon imageFORMULA DR-S150 is the perfect solution for integrating paper-based information into digital workflows,” said Lee Davis, Associate Director of Software/ Scanners at Keypoint Intelligence. “Users can create and save up to 99 single-touch scanning profiles—complete with image enhancement, data extraction, file naming, and routing settings—to streamline and standardize frequently recurring scanning chores, like AP processing or adding patient information to an EHR system.”


Fujitsu Marries Fast Speeds and Automation to Accelerate Business Processes

“The Fujitsu fi-7900 helps businesses centralize document digitization with one machine, including eliminating or automating certain tasks such as data extraction, file naming, and routing,” Davis said. “The Automatic Profile Selection tool automatically applies document processing settings for a given document based on its content. The device accommodates a wide range of documents, even if they’re mixed together, and its media-handling capabilities ensure reliable throughput—in fact, the Fujitsu fi-7900 scanned over half a million pages without a single misfeed.”


Panasonic Delivers Low-Cost, PC-less Light-Production Scanning

“The Panasonic KV-S5078Y offers the same scan speeds, ADF capacity, daily duty cycle, and roller life of a low-volume production workhorse for the price of a departmental scanner,” Davis said. “The device doesn’t require a PC for operation, which you don’t see in the light-production space and it excelled during OCR accuracy and file-size testing. What’s more, the Panasonic KV-S5078Y has a wide range of workflow automation features to ensure business processes are fast and efficient.”
