Fujitsu America dominated the market this year, with Canon and Hewlett-Packard jockeying for position. Said Scott Francis, senior director of product marketing at Fujitsu: "At Fujitsu we have a very core philosophy behind our document imaging scanners. They focus on three core things: the quality of the image that we capture, the paper handling itself and overall reliability so that the scanner simply will not break down."
Jack Roberts, co-founder of Cutting Edge Solutions, Kansas City, Mo., is a Fujitsu fan. "The value you get for the cost of the scanner and the quality is very good, and their actual scanner line works," Roberts said.
Dan Rotelli, president of Business Imaging Systems, Oklahoma City, Okla., is on board with Canon. "They're very feature-rich and, being an authorized support partner for them, they provide us with really good training and good parts resources to be able to provide good service," he said.
HP, meanwhile, wins for Ed Greenberg, vice president of sales at IT Access, Westford, Mass. "The low-end scanners, they're all about the same in terms of quality, but the quality is excellent on their high-ends. And the cost is very competitive." [READ MORE]
