Fujitsu Canada Introduces World's Smallest Cross-Platform Document Scanner

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 Provides Business Professionals New Productivity Features and Increased Versatility for PC and Mac

Fujitsu Canada, Inc.

Mississauga, ON, March 04, 2010

Fujitsu Canada, Inc., the market leader in document imaging scanners and services, today introduced the newest addition to its portable ScanSnap product lineup. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 is the company’s next generation mobile multi-page scanner that provides the same easy-to-use one-button scanning and reliable operation as its predecessors. With enhanced productivity features and added versatility, it is also the first ScanSnap scanner designed for full cross-platform functionality for PC and Mac.

Optimized for operation with a PC or Mac and small enough to digitize paperwork easily and efficiently from the road, the ScanSnap S1300 is engineered to provide the most productive scanning experience at home or on the go.

"ScanSnap has become well known for its simplicity and user friendliness. With the ScanSnap S1300, we have added even more scanning functionality and platform flexibility while maintaining its ease of use." said Steve Oblin, product marketing manager, Fujitsu Canada, Inc. "Business professionals with a Windows system in the office and a Mac system at home can now scan their contracts, receipts, bills and business cards with the same scanner in both environments."

New Productivity Features

Fujitsu was the first to introduce multi-sheet, duplex performance in a USB powered mobile scanner with the ScanSnap S300 series and now the next generation ScanSnap S1300 provides even more intelligence, productivity features and flexibility. Key features that are new to the ScanSnap S1300 include:

  • Automatic Quality: When Auto is selected under Image Quality, ScanSnap increases the resolution on small documents (A6 or smaller), helping ensure the fine-print on small documents remains legible and searchable.
  • Mark Text Function: Users can utilize a standard highlighter pen on a black & white document to automatically create searchable keywords of the highlighted text, such as an invoice number or last name.
  • ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap: ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap allows users to be productive by quickly transforming their paperwork into editable Word and Excel files at the push of a button.
  • Grayscale Support: In addition to automatically detecting colour and monochrome, users can now scan images or text in grayscale. This is especially important for small images or text within business cards and small receipts that typically includes fine print.
  • Long Document Support: Users are able to scan a document up to 34 inches long, allowing ScanSnap S1300 to support a wider range of documents, such as long grocery receipts or lengthy rental agreements.

Increased Versatility on the Go

ScanSnap S1300 comes with software for PC and software for Mac so users who use both can optimize their ScanSnap for either platform with equal ease, making the scanner even more portable and versatile. In-box software includes:

  • ScanSnap Organizer 4.1 (PC): Offers PC users a convenient way to store, manage and view PDF and JPEG files as well as perform post-scan editing, keyword entry and searchable PDF conversion.
  • CardMinder 4.1 (PC): Provides PC users a fast way to capture both sides of a business card, extract the information automatically and export it to Outlook, Excel, Act! and other contact management software.
  • Quick Menu Functions (PC): Offers PC users an easy way to scan to a folder, attach scans to an email, send scans to a printer, or scan to Microsoft SharePoint for ad-hoc efficiency.
  • ScanSnap Manager (Mac and PC): Provides Mac and PC users one button searchable PDF creation, access to intelligent features and custom scan settings (profiles) for simple operation with sophisticated results.
  • Quick Menu Functions (Mac): Offers Mac users a flexible way to manage their PDF, searchable PDF and JPEG files. Users can save content to a folder, a network folder, iPhoto, and even directly to their iDisk account.
  • Cardiris 3.6 (Mac): Provides Mac users a convenient way to scan their business cards and export the contact information directly to Address Book or Entourage.

Additional ScanSnap S1300 features that continue to deliver on the ScanSnap legacy of intelligence, quality and ease-of-use include:

  • Scanning speeds of up to 8 double-sided color pages per minute (ppm)
  • Automatic document feeder (ADF) holding up to 10 pages (letter size)
  • One button searchable PDF: Converts scanned data into searchable PDF files that let users quickly and easily find the documents they have scanned
  • Scan to Email, Scan to Folder & Scan to Print functions
  • Automatic paper size detection: From 2x2 inches to Legal
  • Automatic de-skew & orientation
  • Automatic blank page detection & deletion
  • Small footprint (compact and 3.1 lbs)
  • Can be powered by USB (USB cables and AC power adaptor included)
  • ENERGY STAR® and Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant

For Windows users who require additional functionality for managing their documents, a special ScanSnap S1300 Deluxe version is also available. ScanSnap S1300 Deluxe provides all of the functionality of the ScanSnap S1300 plus Rack2-Filer software which provides the look and feel of paper in an electronic environment.
