Scanning Tips

If you work at a business that relies heavily on scanning then you need to make sure you have the right equipment for the job. Scanning is just like copier and printing when it comes to efficiency. There are a lot of different levels of capacity for different demands in scanners. You need to make sure you have the right options for your business.

The first thing you need to consider is your realistic scanning needs. A regular desktop scanner can handle about 10 scans every minute. However, large capacity scanners can rip out over 1000 scans an hour. There are models in between but you need to make a smart choice about what you think you need.

If you are on the higher end of the spectrum then you should also consider getting an automatic document feeder. Sometimes called at ADF, these additions will take out the need for you to load each piece of paper. This will drastically increase the amount of scans you can do. It will also free you up to focus on other problems.

Finally, you should consider getting some kind of metal detector for your scanning device. This will help you find things like staples and paper clips that might still be attached. Those metal pieces can do costly damage to your machine if you aren’t careful.
