Sydney, Australia – 3 September 2018: The world is going digital, and your document management should be no different; that’s why Brother has launched the new ADS-1700W compact scanner, for seamless scanning no matter where you are. This small and powerful device is designed to create a unified flow between paper and digital documents across devices, allowing users to make document scanning simple.

With connectivity at the heart of the design, the built-in wireless network function speaks to all of your devices, allowing easy scanning to your PC, email server, USB host, network, and mobile device. In true Brother fashion, the scanner has been engineered with user interaction in mind, taking into consideration space-saving and time-saving design features. The ADS-1700W has a sleek exterior that is only slightly wider than an A4 sheet of paper, and has been created with intuitive software that is designed to pair with document editing and management programs, Nuance Power PDF and PaperPort. Both programs are available as a standard on the device, and provide users with the flexibility of easily converting, editing and sharing scanned documents.

In addition to this, the ADS-1700W scans up to 25 sheets per minute and allows users to create as many as 25 shortcuts on the easy colour touch screen; reducing the amount of time spent on repetitive tasks. This is complimented by a 20 sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) that manages paper up to 128gsm with ease, whilst a dedicated card slot comfortably handles plastic ID cards up to 1.24mm with emboss. All of these features make this compact scanner an efficient addition to any small office space, reducing desktop clutter, and enhancing user workflows for a more seamless interaction between paper and digital documentation.

“There is no denying that technology has become more prominent in user workflows, particularly when it comes to document management. However, it is important to note that paper documents still hold a valued place in business administration,” said Stefanie Dixon, Marketing Manager SMB, Brother Australia.

“Brother acknowledges that these file forms need to be complimentary for a business to work coherently. Creating a device that is compact, easy-to-use, and allows users to translate paper files to screen, promotes workflow efficiency and creates a synthesis in document management.”

Brother’s ADS-1700W wireless desktop scanner delivers incredible speeds and connectivity across devices, allowing for flexible use both in and out of the office. Further to its compact size and practicality, the ADS-1700W improves document security by allowing for the digitisation of confidential documents, which can then be secured on business servers. More than just a scanner, it’s a clever and necessary addition to any home office or small to medium sized business, minimising the use of space, and maximising productivity for business administration and document management.
