PlanOn today announced ScanStik (model SK600), a pen-sized full page color scanner that scans the whole page at once just like a flat-bed scanner, but without the bulk. Fast and easy to use, ScanStik features a 'click and scan' fast function, that scans a full page in just 4 seconds. After scanning, just plug ScanStik into the USB port of your computer to transfer, recognize, organize, and edit scans with the included ABBYY FineReader SE and PaperPort OCR Software and PlanOn's CLC (Crystal Line Contact) image technology with superior image quality for better presentations and OCR accuracy.
ScanStik also includes a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery, which charges ScanStik via the computer's USB slot, so you never have to worry about needing new batteries or buying a charger. Its MicroSD memory slot holds thousands of image scans from 150 to 600 dpi resolution in color or black and white.
“ScanStik allows you to bring your office with you, letting you scan contracts, receipts, invoices, business cards — everything you would do at work — while on the road,” said Doug Verkaik, CEO of Planon.
For the Mobile Professional: Smaller then full page scanners, ScanStik fits in your bag or purse and saves time by having your office tools with you at all times. Agents, (Real Estate, Investment, and Insurance) or salespeople gather important documents on the road instead of taking them back to the office to copy and return. Just scan the info: driver's license, property tax bill, survey, life insurance, application, etc. on the spot. Also ScanStik eliminates the hassle and cost of using hotel business services by scanning and emailing right in your hotel room.
At the Office: Use ScanStik right at your desk. Avoid the inconvenience of looking for a scanner in the office and then retrieving the file on the network. Makes it fast and easy to receive documents from co-workers or customers, then lets you print, sign, scan and email back.
At Home: Use ScanStik for capturing expense receipts for taxes, pictures, and important personal documents (insurance, wills, report cards, warranty info, etc.). Organize scans with the included software.
For the Student: Scan the pages you need from a book or article in the library or classroom without having to borrow it for days. Collaborate with other students on projects and scan and share info quickly — scan lecture notes from missed days.
