For most organisations, scanning is a crucial part of day-to-day operations. This A4 desktop scanner meets the demand for improved collaboration across multiple working locations, facilitating rapid file sharing and keeping document-heavy workflows moving.
Flexible and versatile connectivity
The imageFORMULA DR-S250N provides a user-friendly and straightforward approach to document sharing with flexible connectivity options, allowing users to connect seamlessly via Local Area Network (LAN) environments or directly through USB. Equipped with powerful web scanning functionality, it removes lengthy set-up times caused by driver or software installations, reducing workflow delays.
The device is easy to get started as users simply scan the QR code displayed on the scanner using their mobile device – this offers instant connection to the scanner’s browser-based application, CaptureOnTouch LITE Web. The imageFORMULA DR-S250N is also compatible with a variety of devices, including tablets, PCs, MacBooks and Chromebooks - bringing flexibility and convenience to those looking to access powerful scanning capabilities within an office or shared co-working environment.
The device also features a direct scanning function, enabling users to directly set-up routine scan workflows, without the need for a PC or additional scanning software. As a result, employees across the workforce can scan documents directly to email, shared folders, and collaborative platforms such as Teams or Slack with the press of a button.
Packaging up productivity and quality
The latest imageFORMULA scanner does not compromise on quality despite its high productivity, offering users market-leading image processing capabilities that deliver high-quality scanning outputs. Through Contact Image Sensors (CIS), users benefit from sharper images, less distortion, and improved text readability.
Once a user scans a document, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) can be used to create editable and searchable files, for effective collaboration and document sharing across the workforce. Compatible with a wide range of document types including legal sized documents, receipts, businesses cards, and passports, the scanner supports a broad range of office tasks.
Making document security easier
As businesses of all sizes continue to scrutinise their IT security, IT managers are tasked with gaining a better understanding of their own organisation’s perimeters and where there are potential weak spots. The imageFORMULA DR-S250N device bolsters security at the network edge by making sure scanned documents do not remain in the scanner, minimising risks of leaked confidential data, regardless of how many individuals share the device.
In addition, IT teams can easily manage users, set restrictions, and customise user preference scanning settings through the active directory or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) address - ensuring strict document security.
Designed with sustainability in mind
The imageFORMULA DR-S250N has been designed with sustainability in mind – renewable solar energy is used during production and its packaging can be reused and is biodegradable. Recycled plastics are also used to build the device as well as durable components, which are designed to last longer. Additionally, its low weight of 3.4kg, helps to minimise the environmental impact associated with transportation.
