Brother’s new ADS4 range of A4 desktop document scanners deliver scan speeds of up to 60 pages per minute – claimed to be one of the fastest speeds on the market. Other key features include the capacity to scan up to 100 sheets at a time and a daily duty cycle of up to 9,000 pages, up from 5,000 a day from the previous range.
The new scanners are compatible with Kofax document and data capture software.
The devices range from the standard ADS-4100 to the high-end ADS-4900W.
Sara Diggle, SMB business unit manager at Brother UK, said: “The launch of these new models creates the opportunity to provide high-end scan and print devices from the same vendor.
“Our ADS4 range is designed to create more efficient and secure workflows and better functionality for IT leads. And our Kofax partnership means they can provide customers with the technology to convert scanned pages to searchable or editable text, create and edit PDFs and manage documents securely at a fraction of the cost other document and data capture software providers.”
Features include USB 3.0 and ethernet connectivity to improve security, an inbuilt touchscreen display for simple scanning, and scan to net capabilities. Meanwhile, a new ultrasonic multi-feed detector ensures users can also avoid missing pages.
Each model is fitted with adaptive TWAIN print drivers, enabling the hardware to be incorporated seamlessly across most existing print and scan infrastructure within an organisation.
More than half of the range is also compatible with Barcode Utility software, allowing users to scan documents that are earmarked with barcodes, to automatically route scanned files to secure folders, increasing efficiency across document processing.
Sara added: “The importance and sensitivity of the information being handled in areas such as healthcare means speed and attention to detail are paramount, which is where our new ADS4 models can make a significant impact. This range has the capability to help resellers with tackling the challenges their customers face in digitising documents, while strengthening our position as one of the UK’s leading vendors.”
