Hello, Mac users!
We are excited to introduce some of the new ScanSnap Home updates for your ScanSnap iX1500 document scanner. There are several new features that’ll make you even more productive when scanning business-critical documents.
Better business card processing
First up: ScanSnap Home now lets you use Zonal OCR when processing business cards.
We know that not all business cards are alike. They vary wildly in terms of design and size, as well as the types of contact information displayed. Sometimes, traditional scanning technologies fail to identify these important details.
Zonal OCR lets you highlight specific areas within the business card, which ScanSnap Home then processes using our tried-and-tested automatic text recognition.
What does this mean for you? In short, should ScanSnap fail to extract the relevant information from a business card in the first attempt, you’ll be able to correct it post scan without having to type anything, saving you time and effort.
Faster Cloud setup
The standout feature of the ScanSnap iX1500 is the ability to automatically send documents to several popular cloud services. Now, with the latest software update, this process is even easier, as ScanSnap Home now comes with a collection of cloud templates.
For the most common ScanSnap use-cases, configuring a scanner to upload files to a preferred cloud service is merely a matter of filling in the blanks.
This is an exciting feature. Compared to configuring a ScanSnap scanner from scratch, using a template is far simpler, and saves users a lot of time.
Legacy Profile Migration
Fujitsu introduced ScanSnap Manager in the early 2000s. We’re proud of our history, and in the years since, our product has continued to evolve, particularly when it comes to the way people digitize and manage their crucial paperwork
To get the most out of their scanners, we encourage users to upgrade to ScanSnap Home, which is the most cutting-edge, feature-rich way to use the ScanSnap iX1500.
It’s now possible to migrate existing user profiles from ScanSnap Manager to ScanSnap Home with just a few clicks.
Profiles define how ScanSnap behaves when presented with a particular type of document. It bypasses the quick menu, and lets you control the color settings, layout, and more. They’re fundamental to how ScanSnap works.
And there’s more
We’re just scratching the surface. The latest software update for the ScanSnap iX1500 also includes several UI tweaks that make it easier to make your way through the application. And if you get stuck, reaching customer support is closer than ever. Also, please visit our website to see the latest updates.
We’re looking forward to seeing how this update makes your working life easier. As always, if you have any questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
