Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., the market leader in document imaging scanners and services, is delighted to announce the company has been honored with the first ever "Scanner Line of the Year" award by Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI), the leading independent office equipment testing lab. In addition to recognizing the company’s "outstanding" scanner product line, BLI has chosen ABBYY TouchTo on the Fujitsu fi-6010N network scanner as a Fall 2009 "Pick" award winner for the "Outstanding Achievement in Integrated Scan Solutions" category.

In order to determine the company receiving the first "Scanner Line of the Year" award, BLI examined past years of scanner testing and concluded that scanners across Fujitsu’s product line have received more "Highly Recommended" and "Highly Reliable" ratings than any other scanner manufacturer. The scanners have also been highlighted as having “better” reliability, productivity and media handling. "Fujitsu scanners offer virtually anything for every user… [and] in a variety of versions to better fit a customer’s scanning environments," said Lisa Reider, research editor, BLI.

"Fujitsu has maintained a rich legacy as the leader in the document imaging market and a steadfast commitment to providing our customers and partners with the latest document imaging solutions and services," said Scott Francis, vice president of marketing, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "Being selected as the first ever 'Scanner Line of the Year' award winner by BLI is an honor and it further endorses the great milestones we’ve achieved across our scanner product line and overall strength of our dedicated organization."

Additionally, ABBYY TouchTo on the Fujitsu fi-6010N network scanner was chosen as a Fall 2009 "Pick" award winner. The "Pick" awards are given to products that perform best in BLI’s proprietary tests, which evaluate a wide range of the most critical performance factors for buyers, including reliability, ease of use, productivity, and value. The integrated solution from Fujitsu and ABBYY was highlighted as a compelling business value to companies looking to easily and efficiently share scanned documents across the entire network.

"We’re also pleased that BLI has chosen ABBYY TouchTo on the Fujitsu fi-6010N network scanner as a Fall 2009 'Pick' award winner for the ‘Outstanding Achievement in Integrated Scan Solutions’ category," continued Francis. "More and more organizations are extending their workforces across dispersed networks, and we’ve worked closely with ABBYY on the TouchTo OCR technology integration to address the business needs of companies looking to expand their capture deployment."

The two BLI awards are a testament to Fujitsu’s commitment to providing superior scanning at competitive prices as well as its work with valued partners to meet the evolving market landscape and changing needs of the industry. "Looking ahead, Fujitsu fully expects the new scanners unveiled in the future will further define our industry leading market share," said Francis.
