Epson launches new business scanner range

July 17, 2014



The WorkForce DS-860 and DS-860N Epson has launched three new colour A4 sheet-fed business scanners, bringing increased speed and reliability to the document capture and digitisation process. The WorkForce DS-860, the WorkForce DS-860N and the WorkForce DS-560 are now available in South Africa. Supported by Epson's Document Capture Pro software and its multiple platform connectors, these new scanners can be integrated into any document management system. The software also offers functionality such as automatic de-skew, text enhancement, JPEG compression and the creation of searchable PDFs. Full zonal optical character recognition (OCR) allows for the automatic identification of pre-set document areas such as invoice numbers or barcodes to further streamline document identification, separation and processing. For high volume scanning: The WorkForce DS-860 and DS-860N The WorkForce DS-860, and its networked counterpart, the DS-860N, both offer scan speeds of 65 pages per minute, or 130 images per minute when scanning in duplex, even at 300dpi, as well as features such as Smart Feed Technology to detect and alert users if more than one page has fed through the scanner. Both are ideal for environments that require fast, high volume 'batch scan' capabilities. The networked version of the product comes with a Network Interface Unit that enables Push Scan functionality, allowing the set-up of pre-determined tasks that reduce end-user requirements and ensure that all scans associated with these pre-set jobs, such as 'invoices', 'contracts' or 'questionnaires', are stored correctly and can be automatically processed. Alternatively, simple 'scan to' options, such as 'scan to email' or 'scan to SharePoint' can be pre-set and easily selected. For on-the-go scanning: The WorkForce DS-560 The Epson WorkForce DS-560 brings Wi-Fi connectivity to the document capture process. The product is ideally suited to smaller workgroups and front-of-house environments where scanning is required in lower volumes, but where there is still a need for easy file integration into document management systems. The product features a new mobile application, allowing users to scan documents directly to mobile devices, as well as useful functions such as automatic detection of multiple sheets being fed into the scanner. Kelvin Reynolds, General Manager of Epson South Africa, says: "These new scanners bring increased speeds, reliability and functionality to our already impressive range of business scanners. Their small footprints ensure they easily fit into even the most space confined environments, while their bundled software and available connectors mean they seamlessly integrate into any document management system."."
