Sydney, Australia – 2 May 2016 – Brother International Australia today announced the launch of a new generation of feature-rich network scanners, designed to improve employee productivity and business efficiency. Durability and network capabilities are key benefits of Brother’s new document scanner range, which comprises three models - ADS-2800W, ADS-3000N and ADS-3600W. Developed for the heavy-duty scanning demands of the SMB market in Australia, all offer full network functionality, which allows the machine to work harder for multiple users on various devices, without the need for a link to a central PC.

Other features designed to speed-up task delivery and improve productivity include Near Field Communication (NFC), one-touch programmable scanning and advanced image processing.

Luke Howard, Commercial Market Development Channel Manager at Brother International Australia, said: “Since entering the single-function scanner market in 2012, we have expanded our line-up and built on the success of our first-generation ADS scanners."

“Network capability without having to log-on to a central PC results in better workflow efficiency and of course, eliminates the costs associated with having to install software at multiple location points – important factors to consider when calculating Total Cost of Ownership.”

For an improved user experience and to meet the need for ‘information on the move’, network scanning allows users to scan directly from the machine to multiple devices – with one simple press of a button, documents can be easily scanned to share across teams and departments.

The 9.3cm programmable colour touchscreen (ADS-2800W and ADS-3600W only) enables users to pre-configure routine scan functions more quickly and with fewer steps, improving workflow efficiency. Programmable keys on the ADS-3000N give users similar options to pre-configure network scan functions.

While still desktop-friendly, these powerful departmental scanners can handle a range of media capacities from 40 to 413 gsm paper weights and embossed plastic card up to 1.4mm thick, making the new ADS range ideal for scanning ID cards.

Advanced image processing produces clean scanned documents, ensuring important information is captured accurately. This results in reduced file sizes for sharing and generates a clearly legible article when reading.

All models from the new range are compatible with Brother’s free iPrint&Scan app, for direct scanning to mobile devices.

The new range is also equipped with support for Brother Solutions Interface (BSI) which enables third-party developers to build, or integrate with, custom solutions.

Brother printers have also been recognised with both PC Magazine’s Business Choice and Readers’ Choice Awards for 2016 for their reliability and customer satisfaction. Brother has been honored with the Business Choice Award four years in a row; this is the eigth straight annual Readers’ Choice recognition.
