  • Paul S., Harrogate

    Love them to pieces - sliced bread is nothing compared to their functionality and usefulness. Already own one and everyone in the place uses it. Hence the purchase of two more.

  • Phil K.,

    Very Good. Easy to use. We are impressed.

  • Phil P., Richmond

    Excellent product, used previously and now getting own unit

  • Peter Lawn, Business Development Manager, James and Giles Ltd, UK

    I work constantly with plans, schematics and my own notes. Scanning them in and e-mailing them makes working so quick and easy. The quality is great and my little S300 fits perfectly on my desk. Now that I have one my colleagues have realised the benefits of scanning and shredding, less paper means more time :)

  • Michael G., Consultant, Swindon

    Very quick, reliable and a great desk space saver! Very happy.

  • Marcus Jackson, Estate Agent, Reading

    How did I work without the ScanSnap before, it sits on my desk taking up hardly any space but yet is such a large performer when required, I often need to scan batches of mixed size and mixed colour documents, with very little preparation I feed them into my ScanSnap which scans, sorts and cleans up my documents displaying them in a friendly and intuitive way on my screen, I would recommend this product to anyone.

  • Malcolm G.

    What took me five or six minutes with a flat bed scanner took seconds with the ScanSnap. Very impressed. I also appreciate the effort to produce a Mac centric product. Seen the adverts, the videos and read the reviews.

  • Justin B., HARROW ON THE HILL

    FANTASTIC ! COULDNT BE WITHOUT IT

  • Kevin C., Doncaster

    Used ScanSnap scanners for the past 5 years. Very impressed with the units and price.

  • Jim Marmion, Wood Group Gas Turbine Services, Scotland

    I work offshore and in remote sites as do many of my staff. Getting important information back and forward between office, offshore staff, and other field staff engineers working remotely offshore or in foreign parts has always been difficult. However the size and convenience of this little device is fantastic, its slips easiliy into the laptop bag, weights practically nothing (0.35kg), so no issues taking on helicopter trips where due to weight baggage restrictions we are limited to a 10kg bag that includes all our working gear, personal clothing and electronic devices. So weight and size is extremely important. Engineers can now mark up drawings, fill in inspection reporting sheets and timesheets and a whole host of other things,all of which require customer signitures on the job with ease, and get them back to us immediately without any delay. Using this device has improved job efficiency,client reporting, job completion reports, wage and expense issues quickly. This is an excellent device and I would recommend it to all in the offshore oil and gas industry where they have similar requirements to ourselves.

  • Joe Disse, caravan freizeit & handel, Germany

    the scan snap helps me to minimize the paper arise in my business. otherwise i have to copy a lot more, so i save time & space. thanx for that!!:->

  • Kathy W., Caistor, Lincolnshire

    Very impressed with the speed and general operation

  • John Edwards, home user, UK

    Possibly the best money I’ve spent in years. I’ve only had it a few days and already it has transformed my study. It will also undoubtedly save me hours of hunting down paper and it is just so fast and so easy to use. Add to that the fact it hardly takes any space and my wife will be thrilled if I get going on those boxes of paper that I have always kept "just in case" and reduce them to no more than a CD. Great product - thankyou.

  • Isabelle Boutteville, Excel Place, France

    We are specialists in service quality measure so we say 100% YES for SCANSNAP. Excel Place sends mystery clients in hotels, spas or deluxe shops. We have people based in different areas in the world, it was very difficult to manage the process of proof until I got a scansnap. We had to wait for the mail to arrive with the documents. With no exaggeration, the fact of sharing a scansnap with 3 colleagues on the same working area is really easy. We just need to activate it with 1 button. It has literally changed our day to day work. I can’t imagine my life without it as it really made us win nearly 1 hour per day... can you imagine. Now, we scan all our documents: invoices, contracts, receipt... and all the documents are then shared on a server.

  • Ian B., Preston

    Very easy to set up and use. Very good product

  • Gareth B., Sheffield

    Superb, great scanning speed, good quality - excellent buy

  • Federica Pozzi, CO.IME, Italy

    I use my ScanSnap every day to scan my employment documents. I think that it’s a necessary hardware to spend less time and less energies at work. It’s my best investment.

  • Darren C., Enfield

    Very pleased - extremely efficient - easy to use - now recommended to other colleagues

  • Dennis W., Havant

    Used the device at a previous employer and was so impressed I bought one myself.

  • David H., London

    I am very pleased. I like the size and the speed. Also the bundled software is easy to use.

Consulting

  • Richard Scott-Watson, RSWMedicoLegal Ltd

    All old invoices, scanned. All documents not required on paper, scanned. Diagrams scanned and emailed. Paid for itself in a day and continues to do so.. What did I do without this great little machine?

  • Cheryl Rucker, CARM Consulting, Inc.

    I absolutely love my ScanSnap. I receive long contracts and proposals which I need to print out, sign and return to the customer. God forbid if it had printing on two sides! It used to take me hours because of paper jams, etc. Now, I look forward to it! I needed to scan tax returns to a company. Before my ScanSnap, it would have taken forever with it being double sided and over 20 pages. Bam! It was done and a PDF to boot. I had had this product for awhile now, and never experienced a jammed piece of paper. Not one issue. I loaded it on my Mac with Parallel for the Windows side, no problems. I absolutely never write about a product. I don’t have time. But, I thought everyone should know how wonderful this product is.

  • Mike Leahy, Mike Leahy, Owner & Principal Instructor, Direct Training Services, South Yorkshire

    At the end of each day I have to scan in around 12 sides of A4. Not a lot you may think but to do it on a flat bed scanner took some time to place under the scanner, warm up time, turn the page, change page then file. With a ScanSnap all this changed, put the lot in the scanner, press to start and that’s really about all there is to it. It even remembers where I have been saving documents so I go right back to the file quickly every time. The ScanSnap is small but has the feel of being well built. There are faster scanners on the market but really this is as fast as you will really need, unless you have huge quantities to scan. The ScanSnap is saving me around 2 hours each week and is so easy to set up and use.

  • Liam Hemmings, in-house lawyer, Sinclair Investments

    We have a very small legal team and try to work as efficiently as possible.

  • Shirley Batten-Smith, Planet Wills, Hertfordshire

    Scansnap helps my small business behave like a BIG business - great little product that works like an extra pair of hands in the office taking all my paperwork and filing it away neat and tidy so I can always find it without moving from my chair and having to rummage through paperwork.

  • Ron A., Boston

    Used it at an office at which I was acting as a consultant and just had to buy one for my own business! Simple to use, small in size but powerful in output. Fast and has automatic sensor settings that save valuable time in not having to continually change settings.

Creative/Media

  • Keith B., Ely

    This device is just fantastic. The speed is incredible and it is simply revolutionising my workflow. I just wish more people knew about this device and it was more accessible to purchase (with ability to see it working)

  • Jill Clark, Credit Controller, Clark Web Development Ltd

    The accountants always want copies of our bank statements and purchases - it used to take at least two solid days of scanning the paperwork to be able to send to them. With Scansnap we can now do everything in about 1 hour. Scansnap is so brilliant we have showed our clients and on our recommendation they have or are considering purchasing a Scansnap for their office. At the moment we are purchasing another Scansnap for our satellite office. The Scansnap saves us time - ease of finding our informational and is such excellent value for money - the size of the Scansnap makes it transportable which is a further plus, we use it everyday. All we can say is thank you Scansnap for making our lives easier.

  • Howard W., Ulverston

    This is our second unit. We purchased the first one on 23rd April 2010. It scans so fast that we have purchased another.

  • Graham Humphrys, head of design,evolve creative, London

    I have been using the ScanSnap for about 3 years now and find it an excellent tool to keep my paper load down to a minimum. Love its ease of use and shear simplicity. My day to day job consists of sending a lot of scamps and visuals for mock ups. The ScanSnap provides an uncompromisable tool that allows my freehand visuals to become digital paper. From Pencil to email its unbelievably easy, Fujitsu has this market nailed!

  • Andy Wright, Carino Communications, High Wycombe

    As a busy Web design house, we bought a ScanSnap S1500 to streamline our accounts and administration. Now we can scan purchase invoices straight onto our server and email bills easily to clients. We can also scan documents to online services such as Evernote so they are available to all members of the team, anytime, anywhere. We are looking forward to getting a S1300 portable scanner that our designers and developers can use on the road and in client premises.

  • Amanda Ferrufino, account manager, evolve creative, London

    I use my ScanSnap S1500M every day! It sits neatly on my desk next to my MAC and I use it to scan remittances, invoices and copies of statements to clients and colleagues. It saves me at least an hour each day and also helps the environment as otherwise I would have to photocopy the documents and fax them.

  • Brian Carroll, Crimzn

    As a Sole Trader working in video production, online Cloud services have now allowed me to reduce the clutter of paperwork and concentrate on getting out and doing productive work. The ScanSnap S1100 is an essential tool on my desk and allows me automatically send OCR PDF’s to my Google Apps Business account - perfect for keeping searchable digital copies of incoming invoices, receipts and correspondence.

Financial Services

  • Nico Vis, financial services, Netherlands

    I wanted to digitise my archive on aerospace and travelling in space; a flatbed scanner was far too slow, so I bought your S1500. Installing was a piece of cake, the scanner started to work as soon as software was installed, without any problem. After first results I also started to digitise word, powerpoint and excel documents (backup of guidelines, documentation of presentations and spreadsheets etc) for archive purposes. Speed of ScanSnap is very good. I even intend to buy a portable ScanSnap for archive purposes being on the road.

  • John Grayshan, Accountant, Littleborough

    A marvellous piece of kit. I particularly like the speed with which ScanSnap converts data to a pdf attachment to e-mail. Saves me a lot of time and the speed with which I can respond to requests for information must impress clients.

Healthcare

  • Martin Pendry, Osteopath. London

    This Fujitsu S1300 replaces an older Fujitsu SnapScanner as the previous scanner had started to wear out and this allows me to update the software as well. The three main things that I love my scanner for is: * Keeping a record of those statements the utility companies send ~ How long should you keep the paper version? * Keeping receipts of things bought. * Keeping notes from courses that I attend for my professional development. The secret is to have a very simple naming congestion to file and rename the pdfs. I use the company/item-subject/date to name things. Keep it simple.

  • Dr. Osman Bhatti, National Health Service, UK

    Working in the NHS, great care needs to be taken with document management as patient confidentiality is paramount. The ScanSnap certainly makes scanning literally a snap and not only does it scan fast and accurately, it is so versatile and portable.

  • Adam Claridge-Chang

    Simply amazing machine. Makes handling documents almost effortless. Now I have gone nearly paperless in almost everything I do - no more rifling through filing cabinets! I can email documents in minutes. People are stunned when I show them what it can do. Miles ahead of any other office electronics I have ever used.

  • Rainer Wolf, surgeon, Kreiskrankenhaus Grünstadt, Germany

    A year ago I decided to scan all my documents and store them on my PC to reduce the papers in my rack and to find them quickly, wherever I am with my Notebook or to save them in the cloud. I used my flatscanner for this until I saw a document scanner. Now I have the ScanSnap S1300 and I save a lot of time now. I use the PaperPort Programm from NUANCE to organize my documents.

  • Jonathan Jones, Consultant Neuroradiologist, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust

    I’m a consultant neuroradiologist at a busy teaching hospital. And slightly disorganised. I have a ScanSnap S1500M at home and a S1300 on my desk at work. This enables me to capture everything that comes across my desk just about anywhere. The good thing about the scanners are they’re quick & reliable so it doesn’t matter if it’s unobtrusively scanning a request form at work whilst I’m discussing the case with the referring clinician or scanning the hefty proceedings of a conference as soon as I get back through the door at home... I no longer think about it... once it’s done I no longer have to worry about it taking up space physically or mentally and can just get on with the rest of my life!

  • Christian Dutton, ROKA International Charity

    I recently assisted with a project in Tibet to help people in need wherever necessary, regardless of religion or culture. I took with me a ScanSnap S1300 portable scanner. I chose to create a profile; this was very straightforward and allowed me to customise the settings… There is the option of setting up multiple profiles which is easy, useful and saves a lot of time. When I arrived in Tibet, my colleagues had been working at an orphanage school where they had been scanning 2-sided student data files with a flatbed scanner. It had taken them several days to scan only 30 students; with the S1300 I completed almost 100 students within just a few hours As the electricity was sporadic the option of USB power was very useful. It worked well in sub-zero temperatures, dusty environment and at up to 5000m. Overall a great product, highly recommended and excellent value.

  • Tim Husband, Owner, Tim Husband Hearing Healthcare

    I am an audiologist involved in medico-legal assessments, industrial testing and hearing aid dispensing to the public. All of which means I spend a good deal of time out and about producing reports and tests. Part of the service I offer all my clients is retention of the produced records for later comparison or production in litigation. Before I bought the ScanSnap S1300 I either had to laboriously scan in every report back at base or write them out by hand to ensure I had a duplicate. Now I can be in a remote location with my mobile audiology suite, testing kit and ScanSnap and not only can I produce an instantaneous digital copy on my hard drive but with 3G I can store in the cloud using an encrypted service. Equally in my business I get handed a large number of business cards. To ensure these contacts are retained and leveraged for further business I use the ScanSnaps almost magical ability to extract the contact details from the cards and import the data into my contacts. The ScanSnap is incredible for the money and I’d happily recommend it to anyone with similar needs

  • Kath Stott, Vision Aid Overseas

    My organisation, VAO, supports a new Optical Centre in the Eye Department of Korle-Bu Hospital, Accra, Ghana. This makes and provides low cost spectacles for the patients and staff of the hospital. The manager uses ScanSnap connected to a Netbook to scan all invoices and receipts, and downloads them onto a Cloud programme. This gives me instant information back in the UK and when I make my six-monthly visit, more time can be spent on training, and less on auditing.

  • Thant Z., Doctor, Telford

    Never seen such a nice scanner.

  • Steve Keay, field engineer, healthcare

    I use my scan snap after completing each visit and use it in my car every day to email my paperwork whilst out and about which allows me to be more efficient and keep my paperwork up to date.

IT Services

  • Philippe ASTIER, IT consultant, France

    My accountant recommended me to use a ScanSnap for all the paperwork we have day to day and also scanning business cards. Today, I’m really happy I listened to him, as my productivity just sky rocketed ! I can scan anything in seconds, and the software is just awesome. Integration is very good. I’ve used a lot of various scanners over the last 20 years, but this is the first time I have one which is so efficient.

  • Guillermo Gallego, IT Technician, Nextel, Spain

    We have more than 100 ScanSnaps in the office, and 0 problems. They are robust, compact, very fast scanners and really good money for value!. A must have in the office and at home. You need to send a copy of an important document? No problem with this scanner, in a few seconds you have the digital version of the document. Now it’s an everyday part of my life!

  • Kirsty Newland, director, Strictly Organised Solutions Ltd

    We use the ScanSnap S1500 to help our clients move towards a paperless home environment. Many of our clients are highly successful people who share their time between multiple locations so they need access to household documents where ever they are so we scan them and store them in the Cloud. Excellent quality scanner and simple to use both on Windows and Mac. Naturally the majority of my household paperwork is also stored in this way saving time and space.

  • Linda C, Hilperton, Trowbridge

    Excellent. It makes the complicated things simple

  • John F., Burton-on-Trent

    Excellent Device and software bundle has considerbly reduced the time spent in scanning documents to the computer

  • Franc Mayer, COO, Contesto GmbH, Munich

    Every piece of paper I scan everywhere. Because I’m always on tour. So I can’t take any papers with me. My favorite platform to store my documents is evernote. So I’m able to access to my documents all over the world. And sometime I can a few of them. Great thing such a mobile scanner.

  • Alex Lorenzo, IT project manager, Spain

    We have eliminated 95 % of paper in all companies who installed these scanners, and all these companies can now see their documents in the cloud.

  • Andrew Nichol, Database Administrator, Cumbria

    I use my scansnap to scan all my Bank statements and use OCR to store them on my laptop. I also scan all my receipts for work.

  • Sam Johnston, Director, Cloud & IT Services, Equinix

    I use my ScanSnap S1300 in conjunction with Evernote to put my paperwork into the cloud where I can access and search it anywhere, anytime from any device and don’t have to worry about it being lost, stolen or destroyed. The ScanSnap makes quick work of everything from letters to invoices and even thick stock like business and greeting cards, while Evernote allows me to date, index, annotate and tag them for quick reference. After a few days to work through my existing paperwork I now scan and shred documents as I received them, and can’t imagine how I coped with it before.

  • Remigiusz Franek, B2B Strategy Customer Care Director, Orange Poland

    I love to have everything in order. I hate mess when everything is not well organized. Since 3 years I am using Get Things Done Methodology in my life both at home and at work. The only problem which over and over was in my head was paper. Ton of papers: documents, agreements, tax statements, medical results, coupons, invoices. I had over 6 folders with over 1,000 paper documents. I tried to organize them in the right categories but anyway there was always two problems: changing categories was very very hard for each document and I always need the document when I was not at home (Murphy’s law :). I tried to scan them using my iPhone with a scan app and it was good for up to 10 pages, with over 1,000 it was not possible to get it quickly and with very good quality. I tried also to use a professional Xerox machine at work but then copying to usb drive, bringing home and importing Evernote was also not convenient. And then …. I’ve seen one tweet about Fujitsu ScanSnap. The guy who wrote the tweet was really excited and he was writing that he will buy one for him. So I started to dig for some piece of information about mobile scanners :), after 3 weeks I was sure that I needed one :). I was looking into the S1100 as this was the one which fitted my requirements and had very good reviews. After a week I’ve got it at home. During the weekend I scanned all my 1,000 pages into Evernote with backup on Google Drive. Now I feel like a newborn baby :) because anywhere I go my documents are with me. My wife was recently with my 2 year daughter at the doctors. It was the first time she had not to carry a backup with all medical exams, usg scans :). All she needed was an Ipad with Evernote :). She was so happy that the next day she asked whether she can use our scanner to handle her work documents :). So we did :). So thanks to ScanSnap … so small device … so much can be achieved :). Thanks !!! For Everything Your VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER
