Business critical documents retain their original appearance, giving businesses a professional edge when printing or viewing scans with customers, or when storing for disaster recovery.

Ideal for businesses and small corporates with a regular or batch scan requirement.

Industry Application

Government and other public offices can manage personal information efficiently by converting a wide range of paper documents into searchable, secure and compliant digital data archives. For this task, scanners must cater for high volumes and compliance with rigid security/data protection requirements while remaining cost-effective.

GP surgeries, hospitals, dental practices, and other medical and healthcare organizations have an ever-increasing need to digitize information both accurately and securely. However, office space is often limited particularly at reception desks and security is always a key concern.

Retailers can convert a wide range of daily transactional documents into digital assets quickly and accurately while sales dockets, orders and invoices can be scanned in the moment giving the business owner or manager peace of mind. Scans can be integrated with sales management platforms or shared to internal or external network folders, USB drives or cloud platforms.
