EPSON SCANNER LAUNCH
MFPs, scanning a wide variety of different documents and optimising space.” The scanners are also ideal for those in hybrid working arrangements, Kevin adds. “As the market’s most compact in-use scanner range, these devices offer the optimal solution for homes and agile offices with limited desk space that require dedicated scan functions for secure document digitisation. “These products are Epson’s first U-turn media path scanners, and are more compact, more energy efficient, more versatile and more sustainable than any other document scanner launched by Epson.” Kevin adds that the range is compatible with Epson’s proprietary Document Capture Pro software. “This enables it to detect the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) of a passport or travel document, extract this data and create a file index. This provides those working in transport, hospitality and other relevant sectors faster processing of documents, greater data accuracy and quicker data entry than equivalent scanning solutions. It also enables mixed batch scanning that can switch between U-turn media path and straight-path scanning to accommodate different document thicknesses and formats, all within one uninterrupted scan job. “Despite its compact design, this range shares numerous functions found in other product categories including glass dirt detection, an ultrasonic sensor (DS-C490 only), and robust scan speeds.” The devices are also secure, Kevin adds. “None of the scanners in this range save information to on-board physical hard drives,”
he says. “This ensures that no data is ever stored on the devices meaning it is not susceptible to any data breaches.” Sustainability As you might expect, the scanners have been manufactured with a focus on sustainability. Epson states that the company has committed to using up to 30% recycled plastic content within these products, which is an incremental step towards its strategic goal of being underground resource free by 2050. “Every business resource should be scrutinised for its environmental credentials, and technology is just one component in this,” says Kevin. “Epson’s latest Compact Desktop Series is the most compact in-use scanner in its class, and as well as being made of 30% recycled materials, it has a competitively low energy consumption, taking Epson and its customers one step closer to adopting a circular economy.” Get involved The range was launched with a webinar, which was well attended by customers and resellers alike. Since then subsequent meetings with channel partners have verified Epson’s optimistic outlook for this range, Kevin says. “Epson is an indirect sales business, meaning we rely heavily on our channel partners to share our vision for improving business workflows using Epson technology. “Businesses are always looking for smaller, faster, more sustainable, more high-spec solutions with customer-centric features. With the new Compact Desktop Series, we’ve hit the nail on the head in addressing these needs. “It can be sold independently or as part
