Panasonic has announced that its KV-S1045C high-speed workgroup scanner has been awarded the desirable 2010 Better Buys For Business Editor’s Choice Award. This makes it the fourth time a Panasonic scanner has won the BBB workgroup scanner ratings. The KV-S1045C additionally got the Better Buys For Business Scan-to-File Award in April of this year.
Following a thorough assessment of models from every major office machine vendor, Better Buys For Business researchers and editors confirmed the KV-S1045C the 2010 standard bearer based upon criterion including quality, performance, value and positive user feedback in the areas of real-world functionality, ease of use and brand satisfaction.
“Winning a Better Buys For Business Editor’s Choice Award is one of the most coveted honors in our industry and is a validation of Panasonic’s engineering, production and marketing vision for its scanners,” commented Bill Taylor, President of Panasonic System Networks Company of America. “Unlike other publications, Better Buys For Business tests office machines head-to-head and consults the most important ‘evaluators’ of all, customers who are using them to improve their office efficiency and workflow on a daily basis.”
The 26 page-per-minute KV-S1045C features Panasonic’s “Double-Exposure” expertise for automatically scanning and combining the content of both sides of a document or ID card into a single electronic image, as well as mixed-batch scanning of paper documents and hard-plastic ID cards.
It is lightweight at 9.9 pounds, quiet, and has a low-profile/small-footprint design which makes it appropriate for service in crowded front offices and reception areas in healthcare, transportation, law, insurance, financial services and other industries where data from a wide variety of documents must be captured at its point of entry.
It is currently available at Amazon for 30% off list price.
