Visioneer Patriot 430 duplex scanner : The Visioneer Patriot 430, a GSA/TAA compliant duplex scanner, has received Buyer’s Laboratory Inc.’s (BLI) “Pick of the Year” award in the entry-level sheet-fed workgroup scanner segment and was also rated as a 'Highly Recommended' scanner for 'offering high reliability, along with excellent ease of setup, superior user maintenance and very good overall productivity.' Bill Kouzi, senior vice president of sales and service at Visioneer says; “The Visioneer Patriot 430 makes it very easy for government agencies to bring scanning into their business workflows in terms of its incredibly low price, excellent ease-of-use and powerful software suite.”|

Visioneer OneTouch technology eliminates multiple steps in sending scanned documents to predetermined applications or devices and provides unmatched ease-of-use in the desktop scanner category. Visioneer OneTouch technology allows users to easily set the “destination” of their scanned documents by pressing a button and selecting one of 9 pre programmed (or user customizable) duplex scan settings. “Destination” examples include scan to searchable PDF, scan to e-mail, scan to print, scan to archive, scan to network, and scan to OCR.

“In addition to being highly reliable, the Patriot 430 enables users to scan with the touch of a button on the control panel instead of having to make selections using software. While many of the workgroup scanners we tested have only one or a few such buttons, this model has nine,” said BLI Associate Editor George Mikolay.

Presented twice annually, the “Picks” acknowledge the best products tested in their respective categories in a wide range of performance areas. In the case of scanners, these include reliability, image processing features, ease of use, productivity, file sizes, media handling, among others.
BLI - Laboratory tests on document scanners
BLI is the office equipment industry’s leading independent authority and provider of competitive intelligence, testing and reviews on multifunction (MFP), copier, printer and fax products. This is the first time, in its 46 years of evaluating business products, that BLI has subjected document scanners to its comprehensive laboratory tests.

“The increasing volume of paper and electronic information within various departments is a difficult task for the public sector to manage,” added Kouzi. “We designed the Visioneer Patriot product line to address regulatory compliance while providing a trade (TAA) compliant product available on a GSA schedule. We are very pleased that Buyer’s Laboratory has recognized the value, reliability and robust imaging solutions bundle that we have created.”
Visioneer OneTouch with Kofax VRS technology
The Patriot 430 scanner incorporates Visioneer OneTouch with Kofax Virtual ReScan (VRS) technology that automatically improves the image quality of faded or degraded original documents at the press of a single button. This technology combines the ease of Visioneer OneTouch scanning, with the superior image enhancement of Kofax VRS software. The Patriot 430 is the only duplex scanner under $600 and designed for government use to include Kofax VRS, which is directly integrated into the OneTouch scanner driver rather than bundled as a separate utility.
