[Features of ScanSnap Cloud]
ScanSnap Cloud functionality for the iX500(*1) and iX100 provides users an easy way to scan directly to their favorite cloud services without the need for a computer or mobile device. After quick configuration, ScanSnap Cloud works intelligently behind the scenes to automatically sort scans into four categories: documents, receipts, business cards and photos, to make scanning easier than ever before.
ScanSnap Cloud optimises scanned images with automatic size and color detection, automatic page rotation and blank-page removal
Ability to create searchable PDFs for easy keyword searches up to 500 pages / 250 sheets(*2)
Automatic file naming for documents, business cards and receipts
Receive automatic notifications when your scanned images reach their destination
Change settings or correct a mis-file without having to re-scan(*3)
Use your smart device’s camera to capture images, route data through the ScanSnap Cloud app and send optimised images to your chosen cloud service(*4)
(*1) Depending on when you purchased the iX500 model, the SSID and SECURITY KEY label may or may not be installed. If the label is not attached, configure the initial settings from a computer. After you configure the initial settings from a computer, you can use ScanSnap Cloud functions.
(*2) Character recognition is dependent upon the condition of the scanned document.
(*3) ScanSnap Cloud is a contemporary high technology solution. However, the quality and the contents of the document can impact on the cloud destination. We recommend that you check your chosen cloud services regularly for misrouted documents.
(*4) The camera function is for ScanSnap iX500/iX100 owners only.
