One push, speedy PDF generation has been the trademark of the ScanSnap series line of personal document scanners. The ScanSnap series was first introduced on July 10, 2001 with the launch of the fi-4110EOX in Japan. Over the next 10 years, ScanSnap scanners have been revolutionizing the business style of the customer by making it easier to share information and manage paper and digital data. Fujitsu thanks all its valued customers around the world for helping ScanSnap surpass 1 million in unit sales in December 2009 and for making this 10th anniversary milestone possible.

Since the fi-4110EOX, Fujitsu has endeavored to improve the versatility and usability of ScanSnap, implementing features often requested by users. ScanSnap made its global debut in 2002 with the launch of the fi-4110EOX2, and in 2005 the world got its first Mac compatible ADF scanner with the release of the fi-5110EOXM. The S500 was introduced the following year, bringing a new feature that combined the industry's best OCR (optical character recognition) and color image processing technologies to create searchable PDF files with incredible accuracy. More useful features were added to ScanSnap in the following years, including the series' first ultrasonic sensor in the S1500/S1500M, which was launched in 2009. Searching for and utilizing digitized documents, business cards and more became easier with each generation of ScanSnap scanners.

The S1500 emerged as one of Fujitsu's best selling scanner models and was made the centerpiece of an expanded ScanSnap lineup consisting of the S300 and the S1100. When it was introduced in 2007, the S300 was the smallest and lightest A4 ADF scanner in its class, and the A4 ultra-portable scanner S1100, launched in 2010, brought a newly added cloud-linking feature to the ScanSnap series. This feature and other hot tech trends are making their way into all current ScanSnap series products, offering customers more uses than before.

In addition to thanking ScanSnap customers around the world for their support over the past 10 years, Fujitsu shall strive to surpass market expectations in the years ahead with even more exciting ScanSnap features and products that are sure to enrich the business and lifestyle of the customer.
