Forefront Technologies has chosen GITEX to launch its self-proclaimed world record scanners.

The Scansnap S300 from Fujitsu is powered through a USB and can scan at a pace of six pages per minute, reportedly the world's smallest scanner. Similarly, the Kodak I1860 is marketed as the world's fast scanner, capable of operating at a rate of 200 pages a minute and producing 800 images per min.

"We believe our range of scanners are certain to attract the crowd's attention, in particular the world record beating Fujitsu and Kodak models," says Johni Jabbor, regional sales manager, Forefront Technologies.

The range of products from Forefront Technologies features large format scanners from Germany and graphic scanners from Japan.

It also includes the launch of the Bookeye 3 A2 overhead scanner, which is capable of scanning historic or valuable manuscripts through highly developed lenses, CCD images sensors and white LED light without causing damage.

The company, which is based in Dubai's Jebel Ali Freezone and has a branch in Saudi Arabia, is also targeting the transfer and storage sector with these products.

"With regards to our storage business, we are targeting small-to-medium businesses and will offer value-added services such as complete installation and solutions," says Jabbor.

Most notably, Forefront Technologies has begun offering products from Qstar, an American company which specialises in storage management software. This includes the Sntry ML, an email archive appliance that automatically captures, indexes and archives email messages from the email sever and is capable of managing up to 250,000 messages per hour.

Identifying GITEX as a valuable platform for attracting more partners and potential clients, Forefront has a clear business strategy set ahead.

"The reaction so far has been very promising. We have seen interest from companies in Kuwait, Syria and Sudan," tells Jabbor. "I think the Gulf is starting to reach saturation level so we are targeting potential clients from the upper side of the Middle East and North Africa such as Sudan and Yemen," he adds.
