DocuMate 152 - Duplex scanner|
In the review, published on July 21, PC Magazine's lead analyst for printers and scanners, M. David Stone, said, "Document scanners like the DocuMate 152 are small enough to fit easily on a desktop and fast enough for a small office to use them for document management as well. But most scanners in this group don't come with the software you need. And it's on the software side of the package that this scanner shines."
Xerox DocuMate scanners - PDF file
"For two years in a row, PC Magazine's stringent reviews have shown that Xerox DocuMate scanners offer superior engineering and top performance," said Murray L. Dennis, president of Visioneer, a Xerox licensing partner and developer of the DocuMate product line. "With the press of a single button, the Xerox DocuMate 152 can scan a document into a searchable PDF file 30 percent faster than its nearest competitor. The scanner is also easy to use, yet has the sophisticated features usually found on more expensive systems."
Xerox scanner - OCR scan & Organize
Stone also wrote in his review that thanks to the bundled software, "you can scan, OCR scan, organize, and index your files, then find them as quickly as you can type the text you're looking for. In addition, he wrote, it is easy to "pick where to scan to e-mail, a fax program, a printer, a searchable PDF file, and more."
