If your business has decided to implement a document management system, you’ll need a high quality scanner. Keep in mind that you’ll need a more powerful scanner than what you could purchase for home use.
Document scanners offer a wide range of scanning speeds, document handling capacities and special features. One of the most important considerations in selecting a scanner is the volume of documents you’ll be scanning. You’ll also need to consider the size of the biggest documents and the smallest documents, as well as their condition.
Documents that are conventionally sized can usually go through a feeder. But if they’re oversized, unusually small, or old, you’ll need a flatbed scanner.
Another factor to weigh before purchasing is how reliable and serviceable a scanner is – for example, is it easy to replace the rollers on the scanner?
The scanner you purchase for your business’ document management needs should be durable enough to scan a high volume of documents reliably, and have a reasonably long life. Don’t make the mistake of buying a scanner based on price alone, which could leave you short handed if it burns out immediately.
