Fujitsu Unveils ScanSnap Cloud

New Feature Enables ScanSnap iX-Series Customers To Deliver Scans Automatically To Their Favorite Cloud Service, Without The Need For A Computer or Mobile Device

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu, the market leader in document imaging scanners, today unveiled ScanSnap Cloud, a new service that enables ScanSnap customers to streamline workflows by delivering scanned data directly to their favorite cloud service without the need for a computer or mobile device. ScanSnap Cloud eliminates the old multi-step process to scan and save important information. With the push of a button, customers can now simply send data directly from their ScanSnap iX500 or iX100 scanners to popular cloud-based services such as Dropbox, Evernote, Expensify, Google, and OneDrive.

Transform Scanning Workflows with ScanSnap Cloud
With a quick push of the Scan button, ScanSnap Cloud automatically classifies scanned data into four categories: documents, receipts, business cards and photos. Customers can simply set profiles for each category by selecting the cloud service of their choice in the free, dedicated app, and ScanSnap Cloud automatically sorts and delivers the data to the predetermined cloud service to provide convenient, device-less scanning. View the ScanSnap Cloud concept video to learn more about the new service.

Intelligent and Innovative features of ScanSnap Cloud:

  • Automatic Image Processing: Before delivering scanned documents to customer-selected cloud services, ScanSnap Cloud optimizes scanned images with automatic paper-size and color detection, automatic page rotation and blank-page removal.
  • Increased Productivity: Simplify your workflow by delivering scans automatically and intelligently to your favorite cloud providers.
  • Smart Naming: Files are automatically named using extracted keywords and dates from the scanned documents.
  • Security: ScanSnap Cloud utilizes Microsoft Azure™ which has extensive operational experience protecting cloud data with its robust security platform.

"Combining the ease-of-use of ScanSnap scanners with ScanSnap Cloud's seamless integration to a variety of popular cloud services further validates our commitment to providing the industry's most comprehensive scanning solutions."
