My boss recently has asked me to find a networked document scanner. I'll be honest and say i've never in my life used or seen one lol. I've been looking around and doing some shopping for one tho. I've turned up a promising one, but its a very pricey one. I need one that can scan multiple pages from a remote location to a file located on a server. of course this will all be done over a local network and though a VPN. Apparently this should not be a problem, the problem comes in where I need this machine to have some form of option per user. I need the machine to be able to (once selected to) send to a specific file per user. Maybe something like how a fax machine has an address book that you select with place to send it to, the users will be able to select an option and that option will print the document to their specific file on the server. the Fujitsu fi-6010N is the machine i've found , it looks like a good one and will possibly do all that my boss wants it to do. Has anyone here had any experience with this machine or my specific problem and may offer any help please do. THANKS!!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In my previous position we used scanners quite a bit. The best and they have some very reasonable ones are from Fujitsu. Go to their web site and there are specs and some pictures. They have all the way from a small desktop to a big fast machine…the 5900 model. We used the small, med size and the 5900 ones. They are great. I hope this helps.

    the Fujitsu fi-6010N is a great networked scanner and is pleasure with a price. The problem I face with it is that it gets jammed for a while after scanning five to six copies and one has to wait for two minutes to get the scanning signals cleared. I don't know if Fujitsu can increase its cache memory!

    Many of the med level or higher Multi-Function Printers can perform this capability. They have the ability to scan to user box (on the system), network location or e-mail the scan. One item to consider is how you will add access control in our SOX world. With that in mind, where I work uses scan to e-mail with the user having to authenticate with their AD ID to send the e-mail.

    You can also look into using a network copier. If you lease your copier they may have a multi-function models that you can change to. You can scan multiple pages at a time and you can send it to a desktop or an email address which can be programmed into the machine. We use a Panasonic copier and have scanned 20 to 30 pages at a time to different pc's. If you need color scans you will need to verify that the copier will scan in color.

    thanks for all your input guys! We do lease our copiers and have many network canon copiers. I have not looked into doing this on some of the canons but it may be possible. also we are trying to find the best solution to do this, but with out the scanner, copier, ect hooked directly to a computer.

    Just to clarify my post, the copier isn't connected to just one computer (although it can be). The copier is connected to the network and is given a ip address. You can then send scans to any computer on the network. You load the document management software for the copier on any computer you want to be able to receive scans and enter the ip address for those computers into the copier.

    If you are going to store some images. (invoices etc) then you can use a system called ALCHEMY. We use this lots for filling etc. This way we have it scanned into the netowork and we can scan on customers etc. Its expensive but well worth the price.
