Recommendations for document scanning / letter folder-inserter machines?

  • 1.  Recommendations for document scanning / letter folder-inserter machines?

    Posted 6 days ago
    Hi,

    We're in the market for some new equipment and I'm seeking recommendations.  We're not happy with our Xerox Workcentre copier/scanner for scanning checks, gift letters and envelopes.  It's fine with 8.5" x 11" but does not handle smaller documents and checks very well.   Does anyone have a reliable device for that purpose?  I'd estimate we have 400 sets of checks/docs per day.

    We are also not happy with our Pitney Bowes folder-inserter, which is incredibly temperamental and jams constantly.   We use it for basic paper tax receipt stock and for glossy/thicker stewardship collateral.   Maybe a total of 300 pieces a day?

    Any suggestions (or even what to avoid) would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Hi Matt, we are very happy with our Fujitsu fi-7700 scanner system. It will scan any size document, even all different sized documents piled on top of each other. It scans front and back (if there is data on the back of a document like a check endorsement) and creates a searchable PDF. It is a game-changer on high volume processing days.
    Good luck!
