HP targets heavy business scanners with new models

HP has bolstered its document management product line with the launch of its new Scanjet 7800, 8350 and 8390 scanners.

HP has bolstered its document management product line with the launch of its new Scanjet 7800, 8350 and 8390 scanners.

Aimed at both small and medium businesses (SMBs) and enterprise workgroups, the machines offer quoted scan speeds of between 35- and 70ppm and can operate in fully automated mode, which HP claims makes them perfect for businesses that scan a large number of documents each day.

“HP has witnessed strong demand from businesses of all sizes and representing a number of industries throughout the Middle East for more sophisticated document management systems,” said Amr Hassan, the general manager of HP Middle East’s Imaging and Printing Group. “With a growing number of businesses relying on scanners to organise and manage documents, HP’s new scanners provide more document management options for SMBs and enterprise workgroups that are looking to accelerate workflows, reduce the cost of operations and control risk while managing business-critical documents.”

The new Scanjets include automatic document feeders, which allows 50-100 pages to be scanned unattended, and dual scan heads for automatic duplex (double-sided) scanning.

The scanners are also shipped with HP’s proprietary Smart Document Scan Software, a bundle of programs that automates the scanning process, recognises double-feed, and also offers bar-code recognition and colour drop out functions. Using this software, scanner users can also assign common procedures to particular scanner buttons for ongoing ease-of-use. Captiva TWAIN and ISIS drivers are also included, to help ensure compatibility with large-scale content management systems such as Documentum, FileNet and Microsoft SharePoint Portal.
