Cloud-Enabled Desktop Scanner Enhances Mobile Collaboration

— October 16, 2012

Brother introduced a new desktop scanner — the ImageCenter ADS-2500W. The product features wireless scanning and scan-to-web cloud capabilities, while also supporting today’s operating systems.

With the workforce now functioning across multiple offices, off-site locations and workgroups, the scanner offers a suite of features to help workers collaborate, update and access documents while implementing cloud technology.

Scanned documents can be sent directly from the machine to a variety of business and professional destinations, including cloud storage destinations such as Google Docs, Evernote, Dropbox, Facebook, Flickr and Picasa web albums, and Microsoft SharePoint through the included Nuance PaperPort software. The device also scans to local destinations, such as email servers, FTP sites, USB flash memory drives and Android phones and tablets.

The device also offers wireless and Ethernet network connectivity with a 3.7-inch, intuitive color touchscreen display with shortcuts and one-touch settings. The scanner contains high-speed, single-pass duplex scanning to encourage efficiency in the office and features such as continuous scanning, automatic image rotation, multi-feed detection, the ability to skip blank pages, two-in-one scanning, auto deskew and searchable PDF capabilities.

A suite of software apps adds further functionality to the machine. The software bundle includes Nuance PDF Converter Professional 7 for Windows, Nuance PaperPort 12 SE for Windows, Presto! PageManager 9 for Mac OS, Presto! BizCard for Windows and Mac OS, and Control Center for Windows and Mac OS.

This combination of software gives users a range of professional functions, such as converting paper and PDFs into Microsoft Office documents, searching PDFs, adding watermarks and electronic signatures and the ability to scan and export business card information directly to contact management systems.
