This blog post is the first of a 4-part series that will describe the benefits of document scanners in Ontario.

Document scanners in Ontario deliver major benefits to users and continue to grow in popularity. New models offer productivity-enhancing features at increasingly competitive prices. However, this popular technology offers solutions in many shapes and sizes. With such a large selection, how do you make the best decision?

Basic Steps in Scanner Selection

Choosing the right document scanners in Ontario can be an easy project if you follow some simple guidelines. Basically, you need to consider your application, expected volume and budget.

The first step in your analysis should consider your application. In other words, what type of documents do you expect to scan? Are you scanning financial documents like checks? Do you have extra-large documents like maps or blueprints? Or will you need to scan book pages?

The next step to evaluate is your anticipated volume. Will your scanner be used for routine tasks on a single-user’s desktop? Or, do you expect an entire department to scan documents on a regular basis?

Finally, determine your budget parameters. Just as scanners address a variety of applications and volumes, they come in a wide range of prices. Depending on the type, feature set and manufacturer, a scanner can cost less than a hundred dollars or thousands of dollars. Make sure your scanner does exactly what you need it to do and improves your work functions.
