Fujitsu launches new partner programme
Fujitsu subsidiary PFU (EMEA) Limited has launched a new partner program to equip resellers to take advantage of the document capture market.
The Imaging Channel Program includes sales and marketing support and an education and certification program designed to give resellers detailed knowledge of the Fujitsu scanner product range and a greater understanding of market drivers, such as collaboration, document management, mobility and cloud solutions.
Partners who become certified can earn points for Fujitsu’s Imaging Rewards incentive scheme, which also offers rewards for selling Fujitsu imaging products or services or participating in Fujitsu events and promotions.
To accompany the partner programme, Fujitsu has launched the Imaging Channel Essentials App, giving channel partners quick access to PFU product and pricing information and their Imaging Rewards points balance.
No PC required
Canon has introduced a new standalone network scanner for capturing and feeding documents into business workflows.
Suitable for a variety of applications, from a back office or HR department to customer service points within retail or banking, the imageFORMULA ScanFront 400 has scan speeds of up to 45 pages per minute; supports a wide range of document sizes, including A4, A5, envelopes, business cards and passports; and features a time-saving 60-sheet feeding mechanism with ultra-sonic double feed detection.
The scanner connects directly to a network and is operated via a 10.1in touchscreen with no need for a PC or additional software. In just a few simple steps, scans can be routed to a combination of email, network folders, FTP, USB, fax, printer or to a user’s own workflows via customisable job buttons.
Customised metadata index files can be created and sent with every scan for easy document classification and integration into existing back office systems and workflows. In addition, there is a web application SDK for system integrators.
