Brother launches new scanners to increase efficiency

The new Brother ADS scanner range

Information, communication and technology services provider Brother UK has launched four new models in its ADS scanner range, designed to improve productivity and efficiency of document capture for office professionals with high-volume scanning needs.

The new range has network capabilities, meaning multiple users can scan documents such as contracts or extensive paper files, without the need for a direct link to a central PC. This allows scanned documents to be easily shared across teams and departments.

The scanners are compatible with software that enables keyword search, helping users to trace and access documents quickly and easily and helping to reduce the cost and space taken up by large filing cabinets.

The models offer two-sided scanning and features include near field communication, (NFC) one-touch programmable scanning and advanced image processing to improve quality. The scanners also enable wireless printing, ideal for offices operating a BYOD scheme, as users can scan directly to their mobile phone or tablet using Brother’s free iPrint&Scan app.

In addition, the range easily integrates with existing document management software with TWAIN drivers and KOFAX compatibility. The scanners are also equipped with Brother’s Solutions Interface, (BSI) allowing third-party developers to build or integrate with standing solutions.

The launch follows Brother’s new PDS-Flatbed range, (PDS-5000F and PDS-6000F) which it introduced at the end of last year. The models combine ADF scanning with a flatbed component for organisations that demand high-volume and quick scanning, while also enabling them to scan a range of media including brochures, magazines and bound documents.
