The paperless office is still a thing of the future since it is estimated that the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year*.  More and more companies, offices and even home offices need to convert the page to a digital format.  Digital format allows for archiving, collaborating and easy distribution.  If you still have or generate a lot of paper documents look into getting one of the new Xerox DocuMate Scanners to help you convert your paper to digital.

The Xerox DocuMate 6460 and 6480 are desktop scanners up to the task of scanning your documents into usable and searchable digital documents.  The DocuMates can scan mixed size originals and many different types of paper, from regular letter size paper to dot matrix paper.  The scanners can handle up to 10,000 double sided pages a day.  By handle I mean scan, store and organize.  The document feeder can accept 120 double sided, mixed size originals at as time.  The DocuMates scans the documents at 300DPI color at speeds up to 130 double-sided pages per minute for the 6460 and 170 per minute for the 6480. At 200 DPI, those speeds increase to 140 and 176 double-sided pages per minute respectively.

The DocuMate 6460 and 6480 feature tools beyond just scanning.  Check out these features as detailed in the Xerox product announcement:

  • Visioneer Acuity with DriverPLUS TWAIN uses advanced algorithms to intelligently and instantly correct and improve the visual clarity of scanned documents or images containing imperfections.
