Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 scanner with new functionality

PFU Imaging Solutions Europe

London, July 29, 2013
Fujitsu’s ScanSnap iX500 now comes with enhanced Wi-Fi functionality, offering not only Wi-Fi connectivity between scanner and mobile Android- and Apple iOS-based devices, but also enabling the scanner to connect to a PC or Mac via Wi-Fi. The new feature makes the award winning ScanSnap iX500 even more user-friendly.

This update offers enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity. Now users can transfer scanned documents via Wi-Fi also to their PC or Mac, as well as to Android- or iOS-based tablets and smartphones – all at the touch of a button.

Other key features of the ScanSnap iX500 include the ability to link to many applications and cloud services, as well as enhanced user productivity through automated image optimisation.

This latest enhancement is yet another example of how Fujitsu, the leading brand in professional document scanners in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region, is continuously striving to add user-friendly functions and innovation to its document imaging solutions.
