Spend less time on naming files

ScanSnap Home uses the text, such as shop and company names, found on your scanned documents to recommend file names. Not only does accuracy of information extraction increase the more you scan, but edits made to file names are learned for later naming suggestions.

Spend less time on correcting files

Corrections made to company names attributed to scanned business cards, for instance, are reflected on successive scans with the same attributed company, allowing you to bypass the hassle of repetitive post-scan operations.

Spend less time on finding files

Scanned data is automatically recognized and grouped into four categories: documents, receipts, business cards and photos. No need to be concerned about spending time on sorting data by yourself.

The software helps you quickly search through large volumes of data with keyword search. Recognition of information in both PDF and JPEG formats as well as creation of folders and tags enables you to find information you need easier than before.

Optimized workflow for your usage with profile icons

Since you can create a profile of frequently used preferences on the ScanSnap Home, scanning process can be done just by choosing a profile and clicking "Scan" button.
The ability to rotate and edit scanned images prior to sending to "ScanSnap to Folder", "ScanSnap to Email", "ScanSnap to Print", further enhances efficiency.

In addition, with "Quick Menu" profile, you can choose destination and operation after scanning.
The ScanSnap Home provides optimized scanning workflow depending on your preferences.

    In addition, red eye correction coupled with the automatic face detection feature allows the removal of red eye from flash photography while rotating photos in their correct orientations.

Text re-recognition without rescanning

Flexible access to Cloud

  • Use scanning profiles to save to Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, OneDrive even when scanning from scanners connected over USB.

Easy profile editing from task/menu bar

  • Add new scanning profiles or edit existing profile settings from the icon displayed in the task tray (Win) and menu bar (Mac).

    If you are using models without touch panel, you can select the profile to use from the ScanSnap Home icon on the task tray and menu bar so that you can switch to your favorite scan setting easily and start scanning quickly.

  • *Displayed screens may vary depending on your environment.

Temporary switch settings quickly from Scan window / Touch panel

  • Customized scanning profiles will not always address immediate scanning needs and you may want to make minor adjustments from time to time. In times like this, make temporary setting adjustments from the 4 small buttons next to the big Scan button. These settings will only apply for a single batch so that there is no need to worry about these minor changes impacting future scans.

    What's more, with iX1600 and iX1500 equipped with its big touch screen, you can temporarily switch to Manual Feed mode by pressing the Scan button for 3 seconds. Ability to quickly switch between scanning mode enables flexible scanning of mixed batches.

    *With latest version of the ScanSnap Home software and firmware.
