To make scanning as simple as possible, ScanSnap inspects each document to decide if a document should be scanned in black and white or colour, what the size of the page being scanned is and eliminate blank pages, all of which serve to speed the scanning operation and minimise your storage requirements.
In addition each document will have misaligned text corrected (Auto Deskew) and each page will be have its orientation automatically adjusted.
ScanSnap also includes CardMinder ver 3.1, an application which can intelligently capture the information from business cards. Cardminder now includes IntelliSync which enables the data to be exported to a number of PM applications.
The information captured is available across the range of Windows applications, simply highlight a person or company name within your document or application, press Alt-F3 on the PC keyboard and the related business card images will pop onto your screen as an instant aide memoire of that persons job function, address, contact details etc.
The underling database can be stored and exported to a variety of PIM software such as OutLook, ACT and Goldmine via the IntelliSync.
Using the supplied carrier sheet provides A3 scanning capability, A3 pages are folded and placed in the carrier sheet, when scanned, Scansnap will automatically stitch the 2 (front & back) images together to recreate the full A3 image.
The carrier sheet can also be used for scanning photos/documents which might be easily scratched or irregular shaped documents which are difficult to feed
otherwise and may cause paper jams.
