Re: Is this the Scan Tipping Point?
@jastroff, I think that we've hit the point at which there's no excuse for someone who could benefit from a scanner to work without one. It all depends on how much you need to scan.
If you need to scan one receipt a month, then you already have the best tool: A smart phone with scanner software will work perfectly. If your job requires a lot of scanning, though, then we've got a number of choices available -- I just like the combination of size, functionality, and software that Fujitsu presents in the ScanSnap.
I have to say that the ScanSnap made all the traveling I've been doing this year much more productive -- and I'm now finding new ways to use it. For example, I like making notes on 3 x 5 index cards. With the ScanSnap, I can scan images of those into Evernote at the end of the day and capture the information while getting the cards out of my pocket. It's a win-win.
Put it all together and I think that a lot of IT departments should be looking into portable scanners like this for both executives and field professionals. The error rate on remote transactions would go down dramatically and companies would be able to capture much, much more of the information they say they need.
