The challenge

The work of defense attorneys like Marc Kaulfuss is often quite paper intensive. It is not unusual for files in complicated criminal proceedings to comprise tens of thousands of pages. That is why district attorneys and courts are increasingly turning to electronic media in place of mailing cartons of documents by post. However, this approach may still result in some information being available partly on paper and partly in digital form. What is even worse is that combing through piles of paper documents and transferring the salient information to Word or Excel is extremely time-consuming.

The solution

Today, Kaulfuss works exclusively with electronic files, using the ScanSnap S1500M and S1300i document scanners to digitise documents in his office. Kaulfuss has tested the newest member of the family, the ScanSnap iX500 extensively as an efficient means to manage large quantities of paperwork.
