Truly the best scanner I’ve ever owned. It has transformed my business by enabling me to go ‘paperless’ saving enormous time in the process.

By BobHW on 16 February 2015

The iX500 should be a staple piece of equipment for the office desk…

What I found particularly clever about the software was the option to import any internal business applications you may need to use. If your business application recognises PDFs, you will be able to import your scanned item straight into it.

Additionally, you can use the settings to make the device as independent as possible. For instance, when using Gmail, if you select to attach a document and then open the software and scan an item, it will attach automatically and can also be selected to delete from your computer locally, avoiding a build-up of unnecessary files.

iX500 review article. Great deal of effort has gone into integrating ScanSnap software with popular third-party tools. You can scan to mobile in seconds. Does a respectable job scanning photos. Simplex and duplex scans take the same amount of time. The document management features make the iX500 a great buy. If you need a dedicated scanners the iX500 is a natural choice.
