Scanner

A scanner is a piece of office equipment used to scan documents, meaning it takes a 2D image and transfers it to a computer. This is also called digitization. Most office scanners are flatbed scanners, which means the user lays the document flat on the scanner, which then uses light, lenses, and mirrors to record and upload the document.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Scanner

Scanners are essential for businesses in storing, organizing, and managing files. Digital files are easier to transmit as well. They can be shared via cloud drives or easily inserted into other documents. The digitization process also helps a business achieve consistency in its data storage procedures.
