ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The KODAK SCANMATE i940 Scanner, designed to help the average office worker take control of paper-based processes, has earned a pair of Editors' Choice Awards-one from PCMag and the other from Better Buys for Business (BBB). Easier to use than a shared multifunction device and more durable than other entry-level scanners, the i940 puts the needs of users first with high-performance features that enable them to quickly capture information from paper documents and send it to a digital destination.
"The balance of portability and performance is just right to make the i940 Editors' Choice," said M. David Stone, PCMag's Lead Analyst for Printers, Scanners & Projectors. "If you need a heavy-duty portable scanner, it's the obvious choice."
Equipped with an automatic document feeder, the SCANMATE i940 Scanner can hold up to 20 pages. It is rated at up to 20 pages per minute (ppm) in black and white and up to 15 ppm in color at 200 dots per inch (dpi). "Quite simply, that's the fastest speed I've ever seen for a portable scanner," said Stone.
The SCANMATE i940 Scanner (http://bit.ly/ScanMatei940) converts scanned images into commonly used document formats such as JPEG, TIFF, MS WORD documents and single- or multi-page PDFs. Kodak's Smart Touch functionality allows users to use one button to quickly send digital files to desired locations or recipients. Available file destinations include Evernote, Box, Go-Docs, Microsoft SharePoint, email recipients, networked folders and other software applications. The SCANMATE i940 Scanner easily integrates with businesses' existing systems and software.
"These honors mark an important milestone for the i940 Scanner," said Budd Webster, Kodak's Worldwide Business and Category Director for Document Imaging. "They demonstrate that the i940 is a reliable tool for any business professional to more easily share and distribute paper-based documents using cloud-based or traditional applications." The BBB Editors' Choice Award is reserved for products that deliver only the highest level of performance and offer the greatest value within an individual category. The i940 was selected for its compact design and cloud connectivity, which enables business professionals to remotely send information from paper documents to various file destinations.
"Kodak has come up with another scanner with robust features for its price. It is portable, which allows for scanning to be done and sent from anywhere," said Melissa Pardo Bunte, Editor of Better Buys for Business. "Another strong advantage with this scanner is the three-year limited warranty."
The i940 is also equipped with Kodak's Perfect Page Technology, an advanced image enhancement feature that improves the quality of scanned images. Its built-in capabilities apply automatic adjustments including brightness and contrast, image deskewing, image cropping, page rotation, and color drop-out of shaded forms or applications.
