Kuala Lumpur, September 09, 2013

Fujitsu, a leading provider of ICT-based business solutions today announced the launch of SV600, a new lineup in the ScanSnap series, which delivers simple and speedy paper-to-PDF digitization in a compact design. The very first of its kind, SV600 pioneers a design unrivaled that of others yet has the prowess of conventional book scanning with optimum sophistication.
