To maximize efficiency, these new scanners offer enhanced productivity with reliable performance, easy integration into existing processes and systems with wide driver compatibility, versatile connectivity options, advanced image optimization features, and Triple Layer Security to help limit document and device access and protect against network intrusions.

For higher volume scanning needs, the Brother ADS-4300N, ADS-4700W, and ADS-4900W professional desktop scanners are ideal for business workgroups looking for added functionality and features, including users in the healthcare, education, government, court systems, financial services, and legal space.

According to Forrester research1, less than 50% of survey respondents reported that their organizations’ current document management infrastructure meets employees’ current needs, and their preparedness drops below one-fifth when they consider what their employees will need in the future. As organizations evaluate the tools needed to power their document management strategies with print volumes continuing to decline, facilitating digital transformation initiatives is a top priority. With the introduction of the new Brother desktop scanners, users can streamline how documents are captured and converted into electronic images and files. Documents can be scanned to email, folders, or other applications for easy archiving, organization, and retrieval. These can then be shared between employees, departments, clients, remote office locations, work from home employees, and other organizations.

The ADS-3300W also features a 2.8″ color touchscreen  for user-friendly one-touch control, wireless connectivity and mobile device scanning5.

Jacquie Hunter, Director, Product Marketing, Labeling and Scanners, Brother International Corporation noted, “document management and de-cluttering can be stressful for the home office professional, especially when running an independent business from a small or home office. With our newest series of scanners, Brother is addressing our customer needs where they are to simplify their work life so they can focus on what truly matters to them, regardless of their business or workspace size.”
