The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100i Portable Scanner is a truly portable, compact, easy to use device perfectly suited for use in the office, at home or out and about. Powered via your notebook or computer’s USB 2.0 port, the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100i mini scanner delivers extreme portability whilst at the same time seamlessly scanning your documents anywhere and anytime.
The ScanSnap S1100i can scan from business card size to A4 and with the use of optional carrier sheets can even scan A3. A4 portrait documents can be scanned at speeds of less than 8 seconds per page.
In addition to standard paper types the Fujitsu S1100i Scanner can scan plastic cards such as credit cards or membership identity cards. Multiple page documents can be effortlessly scanned thanks to the continuous document feeding function which allows you to insert pages one after another without any extra button pressing by detecting automatically when a sheet enters and exits the scanner. It is also possible to scan doubled-sided documents using this method.
To make scanning as simple as possible, ScanSnap inspects each document to decide if a document should be scanned in black and white or colour, what the size of the page being scanned is and eliminate blank pages, all of which serve to speed the scanning operation and minimise your storage requirements. In addition each document will have misaligned text corrected (Auto Deskew) and each page will have its orientation automatically adjusted.
The scanner offers two selectable paper paths, a straight path which is suitable for photos, postcards, business cards, plastic cards and the optional ScanSnap carrier sheet, and a U-turn path which is suitable for most common office paper.
The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100i is the first ScanSnap to come with a linking function to popular cloud services including Google Docs, Evernote and Salesforce CRM. It is now easy to seamlessly link and save your scanned image data virtually anywhere and anytime.
QuickMenu is an easy to use and navigate way to speedily direct scanned data to applications of your choice presenting a series of icons to choose from and direct the document whether it be to a Microsoft Office application, physical folder or machine, or to the cloud.
To minimise pre and post processing time the S1100i comes equipped with a host of intelligent automated features including automatic deskew and automatic rotation ensuring the scanned image is displayed upright and without slant. Automatic colour detection and page size detection also ensures the scanned image needs no manipulation and storage size is kept to a minimum, These functions make pre-scan work like sorting pages and changing scan settings unnecessary, so you can scan your documents with minimal effort.
Additionally the Fujitsu S1100i scanner comes with business card software allowing the user to scan business cards and import the data into packages such as Excel, Outlook, Address Book and other database programs for fast referencing and application.
