Brother UK is launching two new compact desktop scanners to help channel partners capitalise on a workgroup scanner market which is forecast to grow 16 per cent by 2020.*
The easy-to-use ADS models, targeted at SMBs and the legal sector, help end-users to work more efficiently with fast scan speeds of up to 35ppm, a 45 per cent increase on scan speeds from Brother's previous models.
The new ADS-2200 and ADS-2700W offer simple one-touch scanning, direct scan to USB memory sticks and auto scanning via a 7.1cm LCD touchscreen**, meaning users can process paperwork quickly and efficiently. Both are compact so are well suited to smaller offices where space is at a premium.
The range enables enhanced image quality through built-in image processing and document correction tools, as well as hole punch and ruled line removal.
The scanners are ideal for collaborative office environments with functions such as scan to email facilitating file sharing. Brother's ADS-2700W also has network capabilities for multiple users scanning documents from different devices.
Models are compatible with Windows, MacOS and Linux operating systems, so are easily integrated into end-users' existing technology.
Aaron Hopkinson, assistant product manager - document scanners, at Brother UK, said: "This latest ADS launch helps to bolster our scanner range for lower-volume businesses.
"Strong growth is expected in the market over the next four years, which is why we're investing in our range. End-users are looking for solutions which allow them to work more efficiently in a business world which is gathering pace.
"Partners with the right models, coupled with the right solutions, will capitalise on revenue opportunities in the scanning sector."
The ADS models replace the ADS-2100e and ADS-2600We. Brother's 16-strong scanner portfolio includes the ADS range, portable DS scanners and PDS models for high-volume users.
