Performing basic tasks, such as setup and Wi-Fi configuration, checking scanning status, and choosing save-to destinations, with the touch screen is easy - even for first-time users. Users can scan with pre-configured profiles optimized for each user’s workflow. With the iX1500, repetitive tasks such as sorting, saving, organizing, and connecting scanned data with other applications are made as simple as possible.
・Create unique user profiles
You can save information to specific destinations based on individual user preference when sharing the scanner among multiple*(1) users, such as family members.
・Connect to popular cloud services with ScanSnap Cloud
The iX1500 features ScanSnap Cloud, which connects to your favorite cloud service to manage your documents, receipts, business cards, and photos. You can create preconfigured shortcuts right on the touch screen to send scans to a specific cloud, or use ScanSnap Cloud’s intelligent sorting feature to deliver scans to the correct cloud service automatically.
