Fujitsu launches ScanSnap Cloud in A/NZ

Fujitsu has announced the expansion of ScanSnap Cloud, a service that was previously available in other regions, and is now available in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Indonesia. ScanSnap Cloud enables ScanSnap users to streamline workflow by delivering one-button scanned data directly to their favourite cloud services such as Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, Google Photo, and OneDrive, without a computer or mobile device.

The service has the potential to transform scanning workflow with one-touch scanning and automatic classification of documents in up to four categories: documents, receipts, business cards, and photos. With the ability to set a profile for each category in ScanSnap Cloud, the service can automatically sort and deliver each category of document to the right cloud services, enabling a ‘work-anywhere’ approach.

ScanSnap Cloud is compatible with online accounting systems SAP Concur, Expensify, Hubdoc, QuickBooks Online, shoeboxed, Talk Accounting and Xero.

It is available in Australia and New Zealand with ScanSnap iX1500, iX500 and iX100 scanners.

Without the need to access corporate networks, computers or mobile devices, this enables convenient, device-less scanning by eliminating the need for document sorting and selection of output destination.

ScanSnap Cloud also includes automatic and intelligent functions designed to simplify workflow by eliminating the need to adjust scan settings or provide file names.

The image optimisation functionality optimises scanned images and applies functionality such as Automatic Colour Detection, Automatic Size Detection, Automatic Rotation and Blank Page Removal. The Name Assist capability reduces manual intervention by automatically naming files using extracted keywords and dates from scanned documents.

The service, which utilises Microsoft Azure, also supports the creation of Searchable PDF files, so that users can perform keyword searches on documents from various document management and cloud services.

Note: Searchable PDF generation is limited to 500 pages per month. All pages after the 500th page will be generated as normal PDFs. If number of scanned pages exceed 500 while scanning multiples pages in the same document file, these pages will be generated as a single searchable PDF.
