This A4 document scanner addresses the needs of companies who require reliable and versatile document capture conversion, for electronic document archiving and distribution.
Scanning up to 25 pages per minute, the Epson WorkForce DS-6500 provides efficient and trouble-free scanning thanks to its 100-page ADF, one-pass duplex scanning, and double feed detection. Additionally, the 'scan to' functions*1 offered by Document Capture Pro enable even greater productivity.
Epson Document Capture Pro makes it easy to integrate high-speed scanning into your document management system, speeding up workflow and enabling users to capture, convert and distribute scanned information in virtually any document repository or document management system.
The scanner and its features can be shared between multiple users using the optional Network Interface Panel. Combined with Document Capture Pro, the Network Interface Panel allows users to benefit from Push Scan features and customise ‘scan to’ job functions, such as ‘scan to email’ or ‘scan to Microsoft SharePoint®’, among others*3. These features enable complicated tasks to be carried out effortlessly, increasing users' acceptance and eliminating training requirements.
Epson ReadyScan LED technology eradicates warm-up time, guarantees an absence of mercury, and lowers power consumption. These elements, combined with ENERGY STAR qualification*2, help create an environment friendly device for your office workspace.
