Double sided and auto feed makes scanning simple.
We are a small farm with a lot of federal information that needs to be kept for a number of years relating to our livestock. For every sheep, I need to record all the ear tag data, keep detailed records of when each butcher animal is sent to slaughter and track all sales. I have to keep records of the breeding and lambing dates and all pasture usage. We use our ScanSnap S510M to scan the grazing reports each year, to scan and save necropsy reports, sales records, lambing sheets and so on.
I am also the registrar for the American Black Welsh Mountain Sheep Association. I use the scanner to archive the documentation on all lambs born in the US and Canada each year, all the transfers and deaths that are sent to me as registration certificates for cancellation as well as all of our normal business reporting documents required by the US federal government because we are a non-profit association. \\Lastly I am the treasurer for our ditch company which is where we get all of our irrigation water from. I am slowly using the scanner to scan all the historical documents about our water rights. We lost many documents during a fire so scanning what is left so I can easily make copies for our safe deposit box is critical.
Upon transitioning from a PC to a MacBook Pro recently, I found my old fi-4120c wouldn’t work with the Mac so I ordered a brand new ScanSnap S1500M to go with my new laptop. Installation was a snap (pun intended). The Mac recognized the ScanSnap easily and I was up and running in no time. The S1500M recognizes every document’s characteristics automatically and adjusts for single or double sided scans, paper color and paper length. It’s just a joy to use and even superior to the 4120c’s older technology. – David, Albuquerque, NM
