Scan, Share and Recycle with the New Visioneer Strobe™ 400 | Visioneer

PLEASANTON, Calif., May 4, 2010 – Visioneer, a leader in intelligent document imaging solutions, today announced the Strobe 400, a new duplex color scanner designed for busy people who need a fast and reliable scanning solution that can be used anywhere. The Strobe 400 is slim and lightweight, measuring only 11.6” x 2.5” x 2” and weighs a mere 22 ounces and when used in duplex mode, the Strobe 400 scans both sides of the page in only 6 seconds. Priced at $299.99, the Strobe 400 is one of the most affordable “green” scanning solutions available for PC or Mac®.  

“While we may never become truly paperless, we believe you can have a ‘less paper’ office,” said John Capurso, vice president of marketing at Visioneer. “The Strobe 400 is a great, low cost solution for anyone looking to reduce the amount of paper in their life and Visioneer will plant a tree on behalf of every customer who registers a new scanner through our partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation.”  

Make a Commitment to Sustainability

Scanning is a highly effective green technology. By digitizing documents, they can be shared in electronic form rather than sharing via fax, reprinting or copying, saving the user time, money and valuable resources. Any business that handles paper can benefit from using a scanner. Whether scanning contracts, forms, receipts, photos, ID cards, handwritten notes or virtually any document of varying size or complexity, the Strobe 400 meets the changing needs of users in many paper-intensive markets.  

  • Healthcare - By scanning patient documents, insurance cards and driver’s license at patient registration and creating a digital image accessible to the patient’s authorized care providers, hospitals can reduce registration time, solve data inaccuracy problems and improve customer relationships.    
  • Banking - The Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act (Check 21) allows banks to replace original paper checks with "substitute checks" that are scanned digital copies of the originals. Check 21 reduces the time, risks and costs associated with paper check processing and accelerates cash flow for retail merchants, small/medium businesses and civic organizations.  
  • Insurance/Financial Services - From Sarbanes-Oxley to the PATRIOT act, records management has become an important part of doing business. A document scanner is therefore essential to first digitize paper records into electronic files that can be securely and accurately stored, transmitted and retrieved.    
  • Traveling Professionals - Road warriors looking to maximize productivity can quickly capture the day's contracts, business cards, briefing papers, and expense receipts.
