Using Network Scanners with SharePoint
So, you want to scan to SharePoint from a network device, and make it easy for your end users? You have some network connected copiers, but want a simple, powerful network device that can be utilized in a small space or a cubicle? Meet the Canon ScanFront 300 Network Scanner.
The 300 is the latest in the ScanFront series from Canon that allows users to share a network connected scanning device. Below is a quick look at the features:
- 50 sheet automatic document feeder
- Color, grayscale and black and white scanning up to 600 dpi
- Up to 30 pages per minute scanning speed
- Touch panel display
- Scan to print, email, fax, ftp, network folder
This is a great scanning device for departmental scanning through a shared device. It has basic scanning features to scan to a folder, and for advanced processes you can add an advanced capture package (like PSIGEN PSI:Capture for SharePoint) to provide advanced processing and routing. Here is a great case study where the ScanFront was used to provide a simple to use scanning solution to Bonneville County Idaho: SharePoint Network Scanning Case Study.
