Organisations are coming to realise that digitising their paper processes can have hugely beneficial impacts. More efficient processes lead to lower costs and higher productivity while extracting maximum value from the information they have access to - increasing their Organisational Intelligence - can be the catalyst for wider, deeper business transformation.
The 2nd generation SP Series scanners are designed to meet the essential scanning needs of budget-conscious organisations, or those taking their first steps towards a structured scanning approach:
PaperStream software allows SP Series users to enjoy a premium capture experience, while Ricoh’s heritage and market-leading technology give assurance of quality and dependable reliability.
The SP Series comes with a number of key features that help streamline work processes, support digital transformation and leverage Organisational Intelligence.
TWAIN or ISIS compatibility means users can integrate scanned data into their workflows directly, or via PaperStream Capture’s process automation. Setting up routines to scan, extract and release with just the click of a profile can streamline processes and improve efficiency.
When a known document format is recognised the system will automatically name, sort and distribute the scanned images and extracted metadata in the relevant pre-defined way – e.g. invoices will always go into Finance Systems, with supplier name and invoice number included as part of the filename.
PaperStream IP’s market-leading image processing automatically cleans up images for downstream processes such as OCR, delivering dependable quality output even from documents that are soiled, creased or patterned.
The compact design makes the SP Series perfect for any office space with limited space, and its quiet design means it won’t disturb others who are busy at work.
The ABBYY Finereader software embedded within PaperStream Capture recognizes the texts in scanned images and converts them to searchable PDFs or other formats such as editable Word, PowerPoint or Excel files.
Thanks to PaperStream IPNet, users can quickly connect to any scanner on the network, from any computer – liberating them from the limitations of short USB cables.
Profile-driven operation means the SP Series requires minimal user training and reduces both scanning procedure and user error. The quick scan button also allows immediate scanning using the default scan profile.
Market-leading technology, over 50-years experience and a reputation for quality and reliability have made Ricoh the world’s most trusted scanner brand.
This TWAIN/ISIS compatible driver supports downstream processes such as OCR by automatically cleaning up images without the need for complicated setting adjustments. Its PaperStream IPNet capability can liberate users from needing to be directly physically connected to the scanner by utilising LAN connection. Organisations can now be more flexible in how they deploy their scanning architecture.
The full version of our Capture software offers users the same powerful, automated scanning experience as our premium scanner range.
