KODAK SCANMATE i9200 Scanner

The Scan Man believes this scanner will be a big winner for Kodak.  The Kodak i920 is a compact desktop scanner that preserves your precious desk space with a small footprint.  It will make you more efficient as you are able to automate repetitive tasks.  The scanner also includes Presto Bizcard software to scan your business cards into a database or your contact management system.

With Kodak’s Smart Touch functionality, the KODAK SCANMATE i920 gets important business documents into your information network in an instant. That’s because Smart Touch automates multiple-step scanning operations by capturing, processing, and sending information for you. At the touch of a button, Smart Touch helps you make e-mail attachments, picture files, searchable PDFs, and more. Plus it files documents or sends them to “the cloud.” For example, if a business configured its ID card scanning process as Option 2, an employee could simply select “2” on the scanner display. The ID card would be scanned, processed, and sent to its proper destination — automatically.
