Regional expansion of ScanSnap Cloud – the service enabling PC-less scanning for increased efficiency at work and in the house.

Singapore, February 26, 2019 – PFU Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd., the headquarter for Fujitsu scanner business in Southeast Asia, today announced the regional expansion of ScanSnap Cloud, a service that enables ScanSnap users to streamline workflow by delivering scanned data directly to their favorite cloud services such as Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, Google Photo, and OneDrive1, without a computer or mobile device. This service has been available in Japan since 2015 as well as in North America and Europe since 2016, and is now expanding to Asia-Pacific regions to meet growing demands.

“We are constantly developing new ways to increase the value, functionality, and simplicity of our ScanSnap products to make life at the office and home more productive. Combining the ease-of-use of ScanSnap scanners with ScanSnap Cloud’s ability to integrate seamlessly with a variety of popular cloud services, we are committed to provide the best scanning solutions in the industry,” said Managing Director, Fujio Nishida, PFU Asia Pacific Pte Ltd. “We are excited to partner with Microsoft Azure and popular cloud services to expand this innovative service. This technology makes it easier than ever for our customers and our partners’ customers worldwide to upload and manage digitized data in one space.”

Key features:

Transform scanning workflow

With one touch of the Scan button, ScanSnap Cloud automatically classifies scanned data into four categories: documents, receipts, business cards, and photos. You can simply set profiles for each category by selecting the cloud service of your choice in ScanSnap Cloud, so that it automatically sorts and delivers each piece to its predetermined cloud service. This enables convenient, device-less scanning by eliminating the need for document sorting and selection of output destination.

Automatic and intelligent functions

Simplify your workflow by eliminating the need to adjust scan settings or provide file names thanks to various innovative features. Since ScanSnap Cloud is highly secured, there is no need to worry about security for your data.

  • Image optimization

    Before delivering scanned documents to selected cloud services, ScanSnap Cloud optimizes scanned images with its advanced functions: Automatic Color Detection, Automatic Size Detection, Automatic Rotation and Blank Page Removal.

  • Name assist

    Files are automatically named using extracted keywords and dates from scanned documents.

  • Searchable PDF Creation

    Searchable PDF files can be produced on ScanSnap Cloud2. Perform keyword searches on your documents using all of your favorite document management cloud services.

  • Security

    ScanSnap Cloud utilizes Microsoft Azure™, known throughout the world to provide protection for cloud data with its robust security platform.

Capture and access data anywhere anytime

The smart device capture functionality3 allows you to scan important documents on-the-go, or even when your ScanSnap scanner is out of reach. This function maximizes the convenience and flexibility that one-button scanning delivers.

Because data can be accessed from cloud services, you can easily check and edit data on your smart device such as on the tablet and smartphone, allowing you to access important information wherever you are, whenever you need.
