Epson America, Inc., a leading provider of digital imaging solutions, unveiled two business solutions in October: the DS-530 and DS-1630 commercial document scanners. Editor Stacy Henderson had the privilege of testing out the DS-530, and was impressed by the greater efficiency achieved with the sleek and high-functioning scanner. She believes Epson should be a top choice for home-based business owners to consider when deciding on equipment for their home office spaces.
The DS-530 and the DS-1630 offer a complete set of software tools, allowing entrepreneurs to make a seamless transition to a paperless office. Both models feature a 50-page auto document feeder (ADF) for versatile scanning and come fully equipped with TWAIN and ISIS drivers for seamless integration with existing document management systems. The DS-530 offers scan speeds up to 35 ppm/70 ipm with enhanced paper feeding technology, making it one of the fastest, most accurate scanners in its class. The DS-1630 is a versatile auto-duplex, flatbed document scanner ideal for virtually any task, including documents up to 8.5” x 14, offering speeds up to 25 ppm. Users can also take advantage of the flatbed to scan IDs, passports, fragile items and bulky items such as booklets and textbooks.
Epson makes it easy for business owners to incorporate high quality hardware into their existing infrastructure to streamline operations. The new document management solutions include TWAIN and ISIS drivers for simple integration with document management systems, enabling users to save time and money by directly scanning files into their existing workflow.
Both models offer easy one-touch scanning for users to directly save their files to folders, email and with Epson Document Capture software installed on a connected Windows PC or Mac, to online storage accounts including Dropbox, SharePoint, FileBound, Evernote and Google Drive. In addition, both scanners are equipped with a robust software package including Epson Document Capture, ABBYY FineReader and Presto! BizCard Reader. Both models also feature Epson Image Processing Technology for text and image enhancements such as auto crop, blank page and background removal. The OCR software can be used to either create searchable PDFs or editable files with Word and Excel. The DS-530 and DS-1630 can be connected to the network with Epson’s Network Interface Unit.
