Canon UK, the imaging solutions provider, has introduced the imageFORMULA ScanFront 300 and imageFORMULA ScanFront 300P for users to scan and share documents securely and efficiently across multiple destinations. Launched following the success of its first networked document scanners the imageFORMULA ScanFront 220 and 220P the latest models have enhanced scanning speeds of up to 30ppm black and white and 25ppm colour. They also have upgraded features to meet a growing demand for network scanners in offices, between workgroups and customer-facing environments.
With an eye-catching ergonomic design, the imageFORMULA ScanFront 300 and 300P are ideal for retail spaces or reception areas where they will be on public view. With one of the smallest footprints in their class, an intuitive large 8.4" colour touch screen enables users to navigate menus quickly and confidently, while personalised job buttons ensure swift and accurate file distribution. Both models have enhanced network scanning options capable of sharing to a combination of email, FTP, shared folders, USB devices, fax server and USB devices and printers.
A simple web browser allows IT administrators to deploy, update, manage, and restore multiple devices easily from any remote location. The new ScanFront Administration tool further enables simultaneous updates to be applied to a fleet of devices located across various offices and departments, reducing IT costs and time.
Trevor Dodsworth, Head of Product Marketing, Business to Business, Canon UK says, "The imageFORMULA ScanFront 300 and 300P will make it easier than ever for organisations to introduce a document management solution to their business. Streamlining processes is increasingly important in the modern workplace so that employees are able to share, save and access information efficiently.
"Whether used in busy corporate offices for easy convenient scanning, in banks for processing payments securely, or the retail sector when confirming customer contract information, the new imageFORMULA ScanFront devices can support a multitude of processes and workflows."
While the standard imageFORMULA ScanFront 300 provides individual user authentication access for users, heightened security features on the professional imageFORMULA ScanFront 300P model offers additional finger swipe authentication. In addition, it also uses an ultrasonic double feed document detector to ensure more reliable operation. Both models provide access to personalised job button shortcuts and functions for quick scanning and sending.
With a robust paper handling ability to scan a wide range of media in a single batch as well as more sending options, the new models are ideal for both busy, paper intensive scanning environments and for general ad-hoc scanning requirements. With the added capability to send meta-data with each scan, information can be seamlessly classified and integrated into a company's content management system, to help reduce costs.
Both networked scanners are Energy Star and RoHS Directive compliant and incorporate a range of additional functions including auto colour detection, text orientation correction, folio mode and long document scanning mode at up to 1,000mm.
