Best Document Scanners Breaking Out of the Periphery

By Erik Oehler, Global Digital Content Marketing Manager

For years considered a single-use accessory, the best document scanners are ready to make a story of their own

More Than A Box

Trends in automation have created new opportunities for many traditionally peripheral or single-purpose devices. The power of graphics cards is being used to mine Bitcoin. External hard drives are being transformed into Cloud NAS solutions. Scanners are still sitting on the outside, looking in, waiting for their turn, while humbly possessing the firepower needed to make a difference. Why should traditional computers bear the burden of post-capture processing alone?

The document scanner’s time has come. We’re aiming to redefine our expectations of what these powerful, compact devices can do to improve our businesses; reimagining the possible outputs. Scanners can, and should, be more integrated in the business, becoming more than just a box on your desk, but, rather, a co-worker, a contributor, a solution.

Smart Connected Scanning

The INfuse Smart Connected Scanning Solution marks the document scanner’s emergence as more than just a one-trick-pony peripheral, but as a fully integrated solution in your business process, able to provide and receive feedback from applications via a two-way API, initiating workflows, and speaking the language of your applications and your team. A dedicated data channel sends finished files directly to their destination, not through a PC or server, minimizing handling, time, cost, and potential points-of-compromise for hackers. Management software enables control of any device, from anywhere with an internet connection.

It’s time for scanners to start showing what they’re capable of. Learn more about INfuse today.
