documents and make them a part of an individual’s permanent memory. We are excited that ScanSnap is bringing this useful functionality to its customers,” said Phil Libin, CEO, Evernote Corporation.

The key features of the new Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 include:

Smallest and lightest ScanSnap to date: The features of an A4 document scanner have been condensed into the smallest form factor possible for the S1100 (Approximately 1/4 the size and approximately 1/4 weight of the ScanSnap S1300).

Add to that support for bus-powered operation through a single USB cable, and you have a handy digitising tool that you can use virtually anywhere.

Automated features for near effortless scanning: The ScanSnap S1100 features a powerful set of automated image processing functions, which includes Auto deskew, Auto orientation and Auto colour detection. These functions make pre-scan work like sorting out pages and changing scan settings unnecessary. With just a touch of the button, documents will be digitised to ensure the quality output including paper size detection, de-skewing, image orientation correction and blank page removal.

Seamless link to Cloud services: The S1100 is the first ScanSnap to come with a linking function to popular cloud survives including Google docs, Evernote and Salesforce CRM. Users can seamlessly link and save their scanned data virtually anywhere and anytime with ease.

ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap: ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap allows users to be productive by quickly transforming documents into editable Word and Excel files at the push of a button.

Intelligent Indexing: This S1100 feature automatically takes highlighted words or sections of documents and converts them into searchable keywords after Optical Character Recognition (OCR) processing in order to make your PDF file searches easier and faster.

Scans plastic cards and other various document types: In addition to standard paper types, the S1100 can also scan plastic cards, similar to the ones used for membership IDs.

Continuous Document Feeding (CDF Function): The S1100 delivers a snappy 7.5 seconds/page (approximately 8ppm) scanning for A4 size documents and uses the same automated functions found in the other ScanSnap models to make sorting pages and changing scan settings every time you make a scan unnecessary. Pushing the Scan button to starts the nearly effortless scanning process, and with the Continuous Document Feeding function multiple page documents can be speedily digitised like a full Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) scanner.
