“Office in a Pocket”

PlanOn System Solutions has announced the ScanStik, a pen-sized scanner that is able to scan a full colour page in four seconds.

PlanOn System Solutions, a company specialising in scanning and printing solutions for the mobile professional, yesterday announced ScanStik, the world’s smallest full-page color scanner. ScanStik is a pen-sized compact and sleek scanner. It’s perfect for scanning on the go, at work, home, or school. Unlike other pen-sized scanners that only scan a line at a time, the ScanStik scans the whole page at once just like a flat-bed scanner. For even more convenience, ScanStik also features a microSD memory slot.

‚Click and Scan’ function scans a full page in 4 seconds

ScanStik features a ‚click and scan’ function that scans a full page in just 4 seconds. After scanning, just plug ScanStik into the USB port of your computer to transfer and edit scans with the included ABBYY FineReader SE and PaperPort OCR Software and PlanOn’s CLC (Crystal Line Contact) image technology. ScanStik also includes a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery, which charges via the computer’s USB slot.

Makes it easy to work from home or on the road

‚With more employees working from home or on the road, people need to take their office with them wherever they go. ScanStik allows for this by letting you scan contracts, receipts, invoices, business cards while on the road,‚ said Doug Verkaik, CEO of Planon.

ScanStik uses:

For the mobile professional: Smaller then full-page scanners, ScanStik fits in your bag or purse and saves time by having your office tools with you at all times. It also eliminates the hassle and cost of using hotel business services by scanning and emailing right in your hotel room.

At the office: Use ScanStik right at your desk. Avoid the inconvenience of looking for a scanner in the office and then retrieving the file on the network.
