Just because you want to have enterprise level functionality doesn’t mean that your equipment needs to be monumental in stature. Taking the scale down a notch or three is the new Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300. It’s touted as the world’s smallest cross-platform document scanner.

Now available from Fujitsu Canada, the ScanSnap S1300 represents the company’s next generation in mobile multi-page scanning, but in a package that is easily portable for business professionals on the go. It is fully compatible with both PC and Mac environments too.

Taking the strengths behind the original ScanSnap S300 series, the ScanSnap S1300 offers automatic quality selection, a “mark text” function, ABBYY FineRader for ScanSnap, grayscale support, and long document support (up to 34-inches long). It comes with a large suite of software to boot.

For speeds, you can expect to get up to eight double-sided color pages per minute and an automatic document feeder that’ll hold up to 10 pages at a time. The one-button searchable PDF converts scanned data into searchable PDF files and the automatic de-skew minimizes “tilted” documents.

“ScanSnap has become well known for its simplicity and user friendliness. With the ScanSnap S1300, we have added even more scanning functionality and platform flexibility while maintaining its ease of use.” said Steve Oblin, product marketing manager at Fujitsu Canada. “Business professionals with a Windows system in the office and a Mac system at home can now scan their contracts, receipts, bills and business cards with the same scanner in both environments.”

The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 is available now for $325. You can bump up to the “Deluxe” model for $50 more, gaining access to the Rack-2-Filer software.
