After a long five-year wait, Fujitsu recently announced the newest member of its ScanSnap line of scanners, the iX1500.

The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 is set to transform all the paper surrounding with valuable information and improve productivity with key features such as the One Button Simplicity, one-stop-or-all ScanSnap Home software, and other multiple functionalities for a stress-free operation.

The iX1500 builds upon the product's One Button Simplicity that takes efficiency to a new level and constantly evolves to satisfy its users with various automation functions. It has capabilities to perform basic tasks such as setting up Wi-Fi configuration, checking scanning statuses, and choosing saving destinations with the “one touch” of ScanSnap Series' first 4.3-inch touchscreen.

Users can also scan with pre-configured details that can be optimized with each user's workflow, and repetitive tasks such as sorting, saving, organizing, and connecting scanned data with other applications can now be done with more convenience. Plus, they can also save information to appropriate destination when sharing the scanner among several users.

The ScanSnap Home, which comprises of the most favored ScanSnap software functions, enables users to manage, edit, and utilize various types of scanned paper (such as documents, business cards, receipts, and photos) with ease. The device automatically creates title suggestions for your scanned paper based on its content and present naming convention, plus the scanned files can be easily managed by creating folders, tags, and keywords for effective searchability.

The iX1500 boasts a refined design which makes it blend to any space. Other features include the capability of scanning 30 sheets in color/duplex mode, Fast Startup which allows the device to boot up within seconds from opening, Receipt Guide which easily scans business cards and long receipts that have a tendency to curl, and Streak and Dust Reduction features.

PFU ASIA PACIFIC, PTE LTD., the company behind Fujitisu, said the ScanSnap iX1500 was designed for ultimate ease of use with features being upgraded from its predecessor product five years ago using the artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

“I want scanners to be something more familiar to everyone out there,” said Fujio Nishida, Managing Director of PFU Asia Pacific Pte Ltd. “It's been five years since the release of the iX500. With improvements in design, function, and software, this next-generation scanner has made an enormous evolution. It is now easier to use, keeping the basic concept of the ScanSnap: Simple, Speedy, and Compact. The ScanSnap iX1500 enables everything to be done intuitively at your fingertips.”

The Fuijitsu ScanSnap iX1500 will be available in the country soon.
