We’ve bandied the term ‘paperless office’ for a long time now. But that has yet to be achieved. But more offices are digitising their backlog of documents and keeping them online for easier and speedier referencing.

Epson has introduced five new WorkForce scanners to help meet high-volume scanning requirements of SMBs to enterprises in the legal, financial, healthcare, corporate, and government sectors.

The five scanners come with features that help ensure high-quality scanning.

The Detect Glass Dirt feature alerts users when dirt is detected on the scanner glass. When an alert message is displayed, users can easily clean the glass surface using a cleaning kit or a microfibre cloth.

The Paper Protection function enables automatic stop upon the detection of abnormal paper feeding like folded and/or stapled papers. This helps to prevent damage to users’ documents fed into the scanner.

The WorkForce DS-530II, DS-570WII and ES-580W operate at speeds of up to 35ppm, the DS-730N is at 40ppm, and the DS-770II at 45ppm respectively.

Two of them, the DS-730N and the ES-580W also come with LCDs at 1.4-inches and 4.7-inches respectively for easier scanning and PC-less operation. Both the DS-730N and ES-580W can also transfer files directly to the cloud without software.

The four DS scanners have Epson’s Document Capture Pro that can optically recognise the difference between barcodes, characters, and blank pages in scanned documents to separate them into different folders. It allows users to create up to 30 customised job settings, making it easy to handle multiple scan jobs.

The ES-580W uses Epson’s ScanSmart Software, designed to simplify and streamline the workflow for basic scan and save operation.
