Robust Software and Networking Solutions Keep Business Moving Forward
EPSON Document Capture Pro2 software offers Windows users tremendous flexibility and simplifies the uploading and writing of information to remote network files, improving automated workflow. Document Capture Pro facilitates complex image routing and storage to multiple scan destinations, including FTP sites, folders on PCs, email, and directly to popular cloud services such as SharePoint, Google Docs and Evernote – all with one touch. Users can also take advantage of a simplified scanning process by creating and saving 29 additional user-programmable profiles1.
For added convenience, Epson also offers an optional network module compatible with each of the new scanners, allowing users to scan to any PC on the network1 with full access to Document Capture Pro features.
Epson’s new flatbed scanners include a robust feature set for high performance scanning, including scan-to-searchable PDF and a powerful software suite that includes EPSON Scan and ABBYY® FineReader® Sprint OCR. The scanners are also equipped with an ultrasonic double-feed detector, which automatically stops the scanning process if two pages are stuck together. The scanners also include a four-line CCD (RGB and Black) for excellent image quality and fast speeds in both colour and black-and-white original scan modes, and provide users with the continuously variable colour enhancement and colour dropout for great control of the scanned image regardless of the original document colour scheme. The WorkForce flatbed scanners are Windows and Mac compatible, include an ISIS driver, are TWAIN-compliant for simple implementation and customization in virtually any workplace environment, and include fast, Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connectivity for quick and easy set up.
