South Africa Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 Facilitates Mobile Scan-to-Cloud

New, ultra-portable document capture solution for the information age nomad

PFU Imaging Solutions Europe

January 12, 2011

PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Ltd., a subsidiary of Fujitsu Ltd, today announced the launch of the new ScanSnap S1100, the most compact, mobile and affordable Fujitsu scanning solution ever. The new, ultra-portable USB document scanner transfers printed, drawn, or written information to a PC or Mac computer and also supports direct interface to Google Docs, Evernote and other cloud applications. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 thus enables customers to easily manage documents on their desktop, in popular offsite offerings or both. Users can facilitate access for themselves or others anytime, anyplace via a device platform of their choice – be it PC, Mac, iPhone/iPad, Blackberry, or Windows and Android Smartphones. ScanSnap S1100 provides an intuitive mobile document-capture concept that is consistent with every member of the ScanSnap family: Simply insert the document, press a single button, select the destination and you're done! The intelligent ScanSnap software (included) ensures a seamless electronic workflow by generating searchable PDFs, images, e-mail or contact data, as well as editable Microsoft Office files for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 captures up to eight A4 pages per minute and can also scan embossed plastic cards, ID cards, business cards or A3 documents without a hitch.


The new mobile Fujitsu document-capture solution appeals to anyone who wants to take advantage of the full range of functions afforded by a normal office setting while traveling – without compromises in quality or functionality. This ultra mobility is useful for freelancers, sales staff and business travelers as well as in a meeting, in a hotel or at home. Numerous intelligent functions assure easy, error-free operation and the seamless connection to cloud storage, cloud based services and local applications:

  • Intelligent Indexing: Converts highlighted words in a document into PDF keywords for faster, easier search
  • Intelligent Cropping and Rotation: The device will automatically align and crop documents even if they are inserted skewed, upside down or if they are of an odd size.
  • Intelligent Contact Management: The CardMinder business-card software for PC or Cardiris for Mac (included) generates contact data directly for address books or CRM systems.
  • Continuous Document Feeding (CDF): The document feed accepts up to eight A4 pages per minute non-stop (7.5 seconds per page), one after the other, without extra steps or complicated procedures. The intelligent ScanSnap software combines pages automatically and in the correct order into a multi-page file.
  • Ultimate Productivity: The Abbyy FineReader character-recognition software for ScanSnap converts documents into editable Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files at the touch of a button.

“ScanSnap S1100 expands the intuitive ScanSnap concept from an office environment to the mobile workspace. Instead of forcing yet another work concept on the mobile worker, the S1100 allows the information worker on the move to capture paper documents just like he would in the office. This solution delivers a full featured productivity suite for Windows and Mac OS users that enables consistent access to information from anywhere,” said Klaus Schulz, Manager Product Marketing EMEA, PFU Imaging Solutions.


Perfect mobility

The ScanSnap S1100 smart design allows for quick processing of documents on a conference table, at a client's desk, or forwarding notes to the team from a train or plane. Two intelligently designed flaps offer the option of straight feed or automatic reverse for scanning both sides. Closed, they protect the robust device during transport as does its hard finish casing.

Users on the go need not worry about power cords and international plug adapters because the device does not require any – one USB cable is all that's needed. The smallest and lightest member of the Fujitsu ScanSnap family weighs a mere 350 grams and measures just 273 x 47 x 34 mm, making it compact enough to fit in almost any notebook bag.


Features, Price and Availability

The S1100 package includes a complete mobile solution containing everything you need to get right down to work: scanner, USB cable, an extensive software package consisting of ScanSnap Manager, Abbyy FineReader for ScanSnap, Evernote, CardMinder, Scan to Microsoft SharePoint and OfficeLive, and Cardiris for Mac OS users. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 is available effective immediately at authorized dealers at a manufacturer's suggested price of 175€/150GBP/238USD (net of value-added tax and without copyright charge).
