Epson offers a comprehensive range of best-in-class business scanners from the smallest and fastest A4 sheet-fed scanners on the market, right through to A3 networked ﬂatbed models
Designed to support organisations in their digital transformation journeys, Epson’s range of unique scanners is available through Exertis, Ingram Micro, Midwich and Tech Data. The range caters for all customers – from public sector bodies, including local government, education and healthcare, through key verticals such as finance, legal, accounting and logistics.
Epson is urging resellers to look at standalone scanners to enhance their customers’ document management infrastructures. Kevin Dobson, Product Manager, said: “Scanning is a vitally important part of any modern business looking to reduce their reliance on paper documentation and to help speed up business processes.”
He continued: “Having dedicated scanners, with their advanced features, high daily capacity and small footprint, is ideal for helping those areas within any business cope with the ever-increasing need to scan, store and retrieve business documents quickly and efficiently.”
Dobson argues that dedicated scanners also help to reduce the traffic going through multifunction printers, allowing departments within any business that have high scanning needs, such as finance teams, HR and legal, to efficiently process all their paper documents, without inconveniencing other teams reliant on the multifunction printer.
