Last updated on December 6th, 2023 at 09:29 pm

Document digitization is a critical part of running and managing your business. Converting this data into digital formats frees up physical space and lets you store it in more secure formats. As both powerful scanning software and a series of powerful, easy-to-use scanners, Fujitsu ScanSnap delivers unparalleled convenience, functionality, and value. In this short guide, you’ll learn how ScanSnap can benefit your small business. 

One-Touch Scanning

Fujitsu’s ScanSnap series models like the ScanSnap-iX 1400 let you scan your documents with just the touch of a button. With an optical resolution of 600 dpi, its one-button scanning uses intelligent image processing to produce the most accurate scans possible. The iX1400 offers both single- and double-sided scanning and comes with a convenient 50-sheet automatic document feeder. How does the iX1400 deliver so much value? Let’s take a look at some of its key features:

  • Single- and double-sided scanning: up to 40 ppm
  • Ultrasonic sensor with overlap detection
  • Advanced paper separation
  • Paper length detection
  • Instant file creation 

Fujitsu offers several different ScanSnap software versions for use with the iX1400. ScanSnap Manager supports standard features including image correction plus file creation in several different formats: JPEG and searchable PDF plus MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint. 

More ScanSnap Models

Besides the iX1400, Fujitsu’s ScanSnap line includes a large selection of powerful one-touch scanners. As the series’ flagship model, the ScanSnap iX1600 scans up to 40 pages per minute and boasts a 50-sheet ADF. In addition to USB connectivity, the iX1600 also connects via Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz. 

Smaller compact models include the ScanSnap iX1300 and iX100. The iX1300 is a space-conscious model that takes up less surface area than a sheet of paper: It measures 11.7 x 4.5 x 3.3 inches. Supporting both USB and Wi-Fi connections, this model comes equipped with a 20-page automatic document feeder and scans up to 30 pages per minute. The iX100 is a mobile, wireless battery-powered scanner that scans a single-sided color document in about five seconds. 

Simplifying Everyday Scanning

For small businesses that need more out of their scanning equipment, Fujitsu offers some additional options. The FI-7160 is a popular choice, equipped with intelligent image processing and multi-feed detection to completely capture images and text from every scan. The FI-7160 offers both single- and double-sided scanning up to 60 pages per minute and comes with an 80-page automatic document feeder. Manual feed mode lets you scan cards, photos and other specialty items. It connects via USB 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0 and can scan up to 9,000 pages per day.

The FI-8170 offers similar functionality to the FI-7160 but scans up to 70 pages per minute and boasts a 100-page automatic document feeder. Besides USB, the 8170 supports Ethernet connectivity and includes a front color LCD panel for easy operation. 

A Wide Range of Scanning Options

Fujitsu offers an extensive lineup of feature-packed scanners for home office and small business users. From the one-touch ScanSnap models to the robust FI series scanners, entrepreneurs and remote workers have a full range of options to choose from.
