Xerox Duplex Portable Scanner Helps Businesses Large and Small Cross the Analog-to-Digital Divide

PLEASANTON, Calif. —  January 18, 2017 — Xerox today introduced a smart portable scanner that captures, stores and organizes up to 1,000 pages a day. It has advanced features such as algorithms that correct visual clarity and optical character recognition (OCR) that reads documents accurately in 179 languages.

The Xerox Duplex Portable Scanner is designed to streamline paper-ridden processes that bog down employee productivity. Engineered for the worker at home, at the office or in the field, it can scan 15 pages per minute at 300 DPI, and can scan documents as small as a business card, or documents up to 8.5 inches wide and 118 inches long. The small footprint enables the device to sit comfortably on any desk, a convenience that makes it simple for employees to digitize and share information. At a suggested retail price of $339.99, the scanner is affordable to a wide range of businesses.

Under a trademark licensing agreement with Xerox Corporation, the scanners will be manufactured and marketed by Visioneer pursuant to Xerox’s quality control standards.

“The Duplex Portable Scanner meets demands for personal and portable scanning productivity, and helps our customers achieve their digital transformation goals,” said Walt Thinfen, president and CEO at Visioneer. “By transitioning paper-laden processes to digital, organizations can focus on growing and better serving customers.”
