Direct connection to the cloud

A ScanSnap scanner and a Wi-Fi environment are all you need. You can take advantage of convenient cloud services in the office or at home without using a computer or a smart device. A direct connection to cloud services can be made with a ScanSnap scanner which executes Wi-Fi and image processing operations using our in-house developed “GI processor”.  *

ScanSnap Cloud

* ScanSnap Cloud is based on the Wi-Fi environment services available in the office or at home. Public wireless LAN services are not supported.
You can use the device outside by tethering it to a mobile router or smart device.

Easy “one touch” operation

ScanSnap Cloud's “one touch” operation allows you to just set papers and scan. With useful features to reduce time and effort, unnecessary operations can be eliminated before and after a scan.

Intelligent sort: It automatically identifies the scanned document as one of the following four file types; “receipt”, “business card”, “document” and “photo”. Then it files the scanned document in the appropriate cloud service folder.

Intelligent sort

Intelligent name assist: It automatically produces a file name that combines the date and the document title extracted from the original file. This makes document management and information use easier and more efficient.
* The document title can be extracted only from “document” type files. For other file types, the scanned date will be used as the file name.

Intelligent name assist

Full text OCR (docs): Making PDF files searchable at the point of scanning is a great way to keep them instantly accessible and now you can create a searchable PDF at nearly the same speed as a standard PDF.

Automatic file naming business cards

Intelligent image optimization: ScanSnap Cloud performs an intelligent image optimization process which has been only available for computers. The optimization process inherits outstanding ScanSnap features that save time and effort.
