Canon Bridges the Divide Between Home and Office

“COVID19 didn’t just change how we work—it also changed where we work, creating a hybrid model where some employees work at home and others do so in the office,” said Lee Davis, Keypoint Intelligence’s Associate Director of Software/Scanners. “Among the scan-technology vendors evaluated by Keypoint Intelligence, Canon stands out for its complete portfolio of scanning technology that enables this new hybrid approach to work.”


Versatile Scanning From Epson

“The Epson WorkForce DS-32000 leverages a compact, unique design to provide customers with automated high-volume scanning,” said Davis. “It can accommodate virtually any type of office document and supports horizontal scanning, which provides flatbed-like scanning without having to dedicate additional desk space.”


Fujitsu Offers Convenient Network Scanning

“The Fujitsu fi-7300NX has impressive automation features to eliminate mistakes and accelerate business processes that intersect with a scanner,” said Davis. “For example, the automatic profile detection feature can apply specific capture/process/route settings based on the contents of the scanned document.”


Reliable HP Scanner Ideal for SOHO Environments

“The HP ScanJet Pro 2000 s2 is perfect for SOHO settings because of its low cost and how easy it is to set up,” said Davis. “The device is among the most affordable in its competitive group, and setup procedures are easy enough that even technology novices will be up and running without any help from IT.”


Kodak Alaris Shines in Many Areas

“All of the Kodak S3000 Series devices from Kodak Alaris we tested were phenomenal,” said Davis. “Each scanner was perfect during reliability testing and among the best in their respective class during OCR accuracy and file-size testing. Businesses can automate scan workflows with the bundled Smart Touch utility or distribute automated scan capabilities to the point of capture through the Info Input Solution.”


Xerox Offers Incredible Value Proposition

“The Xerox W130 offers an incredible value proposition, as it’s the only mid-volume production scanner with scan speeds over 100 ppm and supports 100,000 scans a day for under $10,000,” said Davis. “The device is also bundled with several workflow automation solutions and supports the ability to drive several W130 scanners using a single PC to boost productivity.”
