Plustek Keeps on Innovating

“The Plustek eScan GlobalSearch is the ideal onramp for getting information out of paper and into GlobalSearch,” said Lee Davis, Senior Editor of Scanner Analysis & Software Evaluation at Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab. “The device is designed to work specifically with the on-premise or cloud-based versions of GlobalSearch, enabling users to add metadata directly from the control panel at the point of entry. Better yet, user profiles can be personalized to streamline and standardize frequently recurring tasks for specific workers.”


Xerox Gives Small Offices the Tools They Need to Succeed

“Versatile. Simple. Compact. These are the three words that best describe the Xerox Duplex Combo Scanner,” said Davis. “Perfect for small offices, the Xerox Duplex Combo Scanner is one of the smallest scanners with a built-in flatbed that we’ve ever evaluated. Thanks to Visioneer OneTouch and Acuity technology, you can convert virtually every paper document that you throw at it into searchable, editable files—while automatically applying image enhancement, file naming, and routing instructions—all by pressing one button.”



Stay tuned for our announcements of more prestigious awards!
