• ScanSnap celebrates 20 years and marks shipment of 6 million units

        • PFU (EMEA) Limited is celebrating 20 years of the ScanSnap brand and reaching the six million devices shipped milestone. Launched in 2001, ScanSnap devices were designed to deliver a smarter way to work through simple and intuitive technology. The easy one-touch operation enables business and personal users to quickly digitise documents and improve their personal productivity.

          The first model, the ScanSnap fi-411EOX was initially sold in July 2001, since then over 20 different devices have been developed, evolving from the ScanSnap SV600 overhead scanner, providing contactless image capture for books, magazines, and artwork, to the ultimate in personal productivity, ScanSnap iX1600. 

          Hiroaki Kashiwagi, President and CEO of PFU (EMEA) Limited said, “we’ve seen a lot of changes in the last 20 years, from technology through to how we meet and do business. The way we use paper, as both businesses and individuals, has also evolved over time. We have seen traditional filing systems replaced with Cloud data storage services. Nevertheless, the need to capture and digitise information has been constant; from scanning business cards to processing invoices and even digitising watercolour paintings. We are forever committed to supporting the goal of making paperwork for you and your business, and we are proud to do so.”

          To celebrate the last 20 years, ScanSnap has created a limited edition ScanSnap iX1600, with only 22 available in the world. The limited-edition ScanSnap is made with the historic foil processing of 'Kanazawa leaf'. This method is a traditional Japanese craft developed over 450 years ago in the city of Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture, where the ScanSnap brand was founded. The specially designed foil covers are designed to represent the four seasons, reflecting ScanSnap’s commitment to providing regular ongoing support to customers as their needs change over time.

          To mark 20 years of supporting users on their digital transformation journeys, PFU (EMEA) will be giving away several exclusive special edition ScanSnap iX1600 ‘Kanazawa’ models. ScanSnap partners will have the opportunity to win a model by registering their sales on the Imaging Rewards programme or by submitting their best-case study on the PFU EMEA Partner Portal. Throughout the year there will be more opportunities for customers to win a limited edition ScanSnap iX1600, individual customers and users can keep an eye on the dedicated ScanSnap 20th Anniversary webpage here.

          ScanSnap has also announced that they are extending its current, ScanSnap iX1400 promotion until 30th September 2021. The promotion offers customers a free 12-month subscription for Adobe Acrobat Pro DC when you purchase the ScanSnap iX1400. For the month of July, exclusively via its e-commerce partners, the free 12-month subscription for Adobe Acrobat Pro DC will be extended to the ScanSnap iX1600 also.
