Epson Unveils Four Mobile Document Scanners Designed to Easily Organize Documents and Receipts

The latest scanners in the WorkForce line are part of Epson's ongoing effort to offer advanced features in new products and document management software for business and home users on-the-go. By ChannelPro

Epson America today expanded its portable scanning portfolio with the WorkForce ES-50 and Es-60W document scanners, as well as the WorkForce ES-55R and ES-65WR receipt scanners equipped with accounting management tools. Engineered for high-speed operation, both the ES-50 and ES-55R scan a single page in as fast as 5.5 seconds, while the ES-60W and ES-65WR scan a single page in as fast as four seconds.

The new ES-50, ES-55R, ES-60W, and ES-65WR, which come bundled with Epson ScanSmart Software, are designed to help users scan, organize, email, and upload important documents to popular cloud services easily. With automatic file and folder naming functionality and an intuitive user interface, Epson ScanSmart Software is optimized to save users time and simplify workflow by offering simple scanning, editing, and integration tools.

According to Epson, the ES-55R is the fastest and lightest mobile single-sheet-fed document scanner in its class, while the flagship ES-65WR is the fastest, smallest, and lightest wireless mobile single-sheet-fed document scanner in its class. Both devices come with Epson ScanSmart Accounting Edition Software, which features receipt management functionality. Accounting document management tools allow users to preview, email, upload, and organize receipts, invoices, financial documents, and more. Equipped with smart receipt scanning capabilities, the system's smart algorithm learns expense entries to automatically improve vendor name recognition. The receipt manager function can also automatically extract data from receipts and invoices, and export to QuickBooks Online or Excel, saving users time and eliminating the need for manual entry.

“Epson designed these new small, powerful, and portable performers with business and home applications in mind, ensuring a scanning solution to specifically suit every on-the-go scanning need,” said David Hawkes, product manager for scanners at Epson America, in a prepared remark. “Users have been in search of a subscription-free, portable solution that also provides advanced accounting functionality, and the new receipt scanners fulfill all the needs for this market. The ES-55R and ES-65WR are the perfect fit for users that need a fast and lightweight receipt scanner that can easily fit into any briefcase or backpack.”

All four scanners include TWAIN drivers for simple integration with virtually any document management software. Nuance OCR is integrated within Epson ScanSmart Software to help users create searchable PDFs and editable Word and Excel files. Featuring an automatic feeding mode, the scanners automatically accept each new sheet as it’s inserted, making it easier to combine multi-page scans into one file.

With the ES-60W and ES-65WR, users can wirelessly scan documents to a PC or Mac, as well as iOS and Android devices. Both scanners switch between USB and battery-powered wireless without any user intervention, and the LCD display shows wireless and battery status. The ES-50 and ES-55R are powered by USB and require no batteries or external power when connected to a computer via the USB port.

The Epson WorkForce ES-50 (MSRP $119.99) and ES-60W (MSRP $159.99) mobile document scanners are now available online at major computer, office, and electronic superstores and online at www.epson.com. The Epson WorkForce ES-55R (MSRP $219.99) and ES-65WR (MSRP $259.99) mobile receipt scanners are now available online at major computer, office, and electronic superstores and online at www.epson.com. All scanners feature a one-year limited warranty and optional extended service plans featuring next business day exchange programs.
