Europe’s next top model’s Mom

PFU Imaging Solutions Europe

December 21, 2009

PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Limited, a market leader in document imaging scanners, today announced that it is launching a competition in Germany, UK, France, Italy and Netherlands through its distribution and reseller channels to identify the oldest Fujitsu fi-6800-class predecessor scanner in the field, which is still in productive use. The competition will run from Christmas 2009 until Valentine’s Day 2010.

To coincide with the launch of the new fi-6800 scanner, the best performing A3 image scanner within its price range, PFU is celebrating by offering the winners of the oldest scanner competition a free fi-6800 scanner as a replacement for their old model. The competition is open to any Fujitsu customer who is using an aged model, which in itself highlights the ability and durability of Fujitsu’s scanners.

The fi-6800 offers businesses improvements on automation, productivity and reduction of costs. The device supports new automatic functions that make scanner operating tasks easy, fast and energy efficient. With the accurate, high speed scanning on offer, businesses will see their work productivity jump leaps and bounds.

The fi-6800 also achieves incredibly fast scanning at a rate of 130ppm and 260ipm, as well as allowing users to undertake A3 and A4 landscape size colour scanning even while in a sitting position. The scanner has a completely new, compact design which incorporates advances in paper feed technology to ensure hassle-free, optimum-performance results time after time.

“PFU has a long track record of providing document scanners of the highest quality. We have a broad variety of scanner models suitable for use in office environments as well as production volume devices for back office and service bureau deployment”, said Klaus Schulz, Manager Product Marketing EMEA, PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Limited Group. “To celebrate the arrival of the Fujitsu fi-6800 mid volume production scanner, this quest for the oldest Fujitsu production level scanner model in use is really exciting. It makes the durability and quality of Fujitsu scanners so visible and allows us to honour and reward our loyal customers who have continued using our scanners through the ages.”

The competition will ask for resellers and end users to identify the oldest fi-6800 predecessor model in the field still being used. The predecessor model options include:

  • M3099 A/G
  • M3099EH/GH/EX/GX
  • M4099D
  • fi-4990C / fi-4860C
  • fi-4860C2

Application forms for the competition can be downloaded from the following website:

The competition will run from mid-December until 14th February. The owner of the oldest model in each of the defined five countries (Germany, UK, Italy, France, Netherlands) will each receive a fi-6800 scanner free of charge as a replacement for their old unit. PFU Imaging Solutions Europe will publish details of the winner in each market.

The fi-6800 has an RRP of €15.995 and is available now.
