Fujitsu has announced a new feature for its line of ScanSnap document imaging scanners. The new feature allows the ScanSnap S1500, S1500M, S1300 and S1100 to send documents directly to the iPhone or iPad. The uploading to the iOS devices is thanks to a new app called ScanSnap Connect. The scanners also got the ability to scan files directly to Salesforce Chatter and SugarSync as well.
Before the scanners will support any of the new features, they will need to be updated. Once the scanners are updated they will have icons for “Scan-to” that will allow the scanner user to choose where the documents are scanned. The user will be able to Scan to Mobile from that point. The ScanSnap Connect app will work with devices running iOS 4.2.1 or later.
Other new options will include Scan to Salesforce Chatter, Scan to SugarSync, Scan to Evernote, and Scan to Google docs. These new options will be great for the mobile worker that needs access to the documents in different places.
