Panasonic announced the KV-S1026C and KV-S1015C personal workgroup document scanners, ideal for small and medium businesses looking to achieve a paperless office or digital filing system. The new, high-performance scanners feature a modern, compact body, and offer extraordinary versatility, simple operation, and advanced features optimized for businesses looking to organize, sync and share documents or protect important physical records with digital archives.
The KV-S1026C and KV-S1015C scanners require minimal desktop space, and look the same except for a color variation. Specifications are identical, except the KV-S1026C models scans at 30ppm/60ipm versus 20ppm/40ipm for the $100 cheaper KV-S1015C. Both are equipped with advanced enterprise-grade paper feed mechanisms that maximize usability. The Active Double-Feed Prevention Roller System, together with an Ultrasonic Double-Feed Detection sensor, detect and prevent double feeding, even with high volume documents or a mixed batch. Additionally, a right and left independent feed roller, combined with Straight Paper Path prevent document jams.
Both scanners are easy to use, featuring three buttons on the top panel, which allow the user to send scanned data easily and directly to pre-registered addresses on a PC or even in the cloud with a single touch. For smaller scanning jobs, touch free scanning is convenient, allowing users to skip the auto document feeder (ADF) and simply manually feed their documents.
The KV-S1015C (pictured above) comes bundled with software that allows SMBs to easily scan and store data in the cloud. Presto! PageManager 9 software streamlines document management and filing, featuring the ability to convert documents to searchable PDF files while providing access to cloud-based services. Presto! BizCard 6 software enables end users to organize business cards, with the ability to extract contact data and export it to major email clients. The KV-S1026C comes bundled with the Panasonic Image Capture Plus software suite, allowing users to easily scan and preview images before exporting them to searchable PDF, TIFF or JPEG documents. The Image Capture Plus software also offers blank page removal, Zone OCR and automatic cropping, among a many other convenient features.
Both models scan plastic cards, including embossed cards, continuously through the ADF. Additionally, the end user can combine paper documents along with a hard ID card, such as a driver’s license or insurance card, in a single batch through the ADF by using the mixed card batch guide.
