Posted by admin on Sep 2, 2011 3:11:08 PM

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

A Wide Range of Scanner Choices

To help narrow your selection for document scanners in Ontario, the following list identifies the various types available today.

Workstation Scanners. These scanners offer an affordable solution for medium-sized applications requiring less than one thousand pages a day. Generally, workstation scanners can accommodate different paper sizes in either flatbed or sheet-fed models.

In addition, workstation features can include basic functionality to more advanced capabilities. If you need to scan documents to special formats, such as e-mail, pdf files, printers or ftp sites, you may have to select a more advanced workstation scanner or add customized technology.

Departmental Scanners. If you require higher capacity, you’ll need a departmental scanner. These scanners generally work best within larger organizations with greater scanning demands. Even with increased performance capabilities, many departmental scanners offer affordable solutions.

As with workstation scanners, departmental solutions come in flatbed and sheet-fed models. They can also scan to e-mail, pdf files, printers or ftp sites.

Production Scanners. As the name implies, production scanners address extreme capacities up to 100,000 pagers per day. In addition to volume, some of these scanners perform functions at speeds as fast as 120 pages per minute or more. Production scanners provide exceptional quality, high capacity and come with a wide selection of features.
