NEWARK, N.J. – January 10, 2019 – Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America, Division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, announced today that Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab (BLI), the world’s leading independent provider of testing services and analytical information for the document imaging industry, selected Panasonic as its Scanner Line of the Year winner. The award comes on the heels of Panasonic’s recent BLI 2018 Summer andWinter Scanner Pick Awards.
To determine the Scanner Line of the Year award recipient, Buyers Lab analysts consider current scanners in the OEM’s line that have been submitted for lab testing. To judge the overall quality of the line, analysts look at the overall rating a scanner received after testing, as well as the ratings in key categories such as Reliability, Productivity, Media Handling, Image Quality, Ease of Setup, Drivers/Utilities, OCR Performance, and Value. Panasonic’s innovative line of document scanners was named Line of the Year for their ease of use, impressive media handling capabilities, reliable performance and Image Capture Plus and Image Capture Plus Express software.
“We are thrilled that our document scanners have been selected as Buyers Lab’s 2019 Scanner Line of the Year,” said Joseph Odore, product manager of document and imaging products at Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America. “To streamline business-critical processes, companies are looking for technology that is intuitive, reliable and efficient. Winning this award for our document scanner technology stands as a testament to Panasonic’s innovation and legacy as a technology leader.”
“No one wants to spend a lot of time scanning documents—especially talented professionals who have bigger fish to fry. They want to drop their documents in to the feeder, hit a button or two, and then get back to the task at hand,” said Lee Davis, Editor of Scanner and Software Evaluation for Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab. “Panasonic’s portfolio of scanners—from their little desktop scanners all the way up to their big production units—make scanning as simple as possible. Users don’t have to spend a lot of time configuring jobs, or cleaning up scanned images, or organizing batches, or moving scans from their desktop to the application they use to get the job done. All of these things and more are just a button away. It’s fast. It’s easy. It’s convenient. And it’s why Panasonic has won Buyers Lab’s 2019 Scanner Line of the Year.”
