It’s summertime and everyone is busy and on the GO! Whether you are rushing out the door for work, meetings, travel or summer activities, there always seems to be a whirlwind of things to do. What happens when these events collide and you have paper you need to take with you?

That’s where ScanSnap iX500 comes in. With the iX500 you can quickly scan a stack of papers with your iOS or Android mobile device and be on your way out the door. All you have to have is the ScanSnap app (Android app) installed and be connected to your wifi network and you can magically scan those documents right into your device. It’s that simple.

With the built-in GI microprocessor and 25 ppm double-sided color scanning, you can be out the door in no time. Let’s use an iPad for example. You have some contracts you need to review, but you have to head to the airport for a business trip. Simply scan them directly into your iPad and review them later. With the Scan Snap app you can open these documents in your Evernote or Dropbox accounts.

Best of all, the iX500 Scanner can work with your Mac or PC desktop too. The dual-platform software that comes with this device also includes Cardminder. This program allows you to scan business cards right in and allows you to add them to any contact program. No more hours of work retyping all those cards you collected at events.

So whether you are on the go or at a desk, it really is as simple as Ready, Set, Go!

Are you ready to get an iX500 yet? Need one more incentive to purchase? ScanSnap just released a firmware update that now makes this scanner scan wirelessly to your desktop. That’s right! You can now be completely disconnected and scan wirelessly to your Mac or PC. It does not get much better then this.
