Direct connect scanners are a vital part of your document capture strategy, but network scanners, like the DocuMate 3920, are the perfect solution for an office that has shared scanner needs. Network accessible scanning achieves two major goals for your document workflow and capture with great efficiency and ease of use. First, a network scanner can be conveniently located in common areas and does not require a PC connection. Second, the scanner can easily access broad network connections to file servers, email servers, FTP locations and printers and fax servers. The DocuMate 3920 is designed with convenience and ease to support small to medium workgroups and offices through a standard Ethernet connection and provides a secure multi-user access, with easy administration, through an embedded form-based web page configuration. No expensive IT department or network contractor is needed to begin scanning documents to local servers or FTP locations. Email can now be delivered anywhere on the Internet (or simple fax sending and receiving) through standard phone line.
