Want to be more productive and efficient at work? We all do! There is one piece of technology that has been out for a few years that saves me time and helps me make more money. For some reason, I still don’t see it on everyone’s desk at work. Since we are all e-filing now, you should have a scanner on your desk, within arm’s reach of your keyboard.  Want paperless files? The secret is to have a scanner on your desk. In my opinion, there’s only one scanner that you should consider purchasing. The Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 does everything you need it to and most importantly, doesn’t do anything you don’t need it to.

Unlike the big commercial copiers most of us use with multiple buttons, functions, and settings that none of us will ever use, the Fujitsu ScanSnap has one button. The Fujitsu ScanSnap will scan 25 docs per minute. It will scan both sides automatically. It will scan in color. It will scan multiple sizes of documents. Again, it will do everything you need it to do.  It collapses down so you can even take it on the road with you for depositions and hearings.

At my firm, every person that e-files pleadings has one on their desk. The amount of time we all save by not getting up to go to the copy room to scan documents for e-filing adds up very quickly. Do you really need another reason to purchase a Fujitsu ScanSnap? Alright, my Fujitsu ScanSnap came with Adobe Acrobat! Still need additional reasons to purchase the Fujitsu ScanSnap? Check out this in-depth review by The Lawyerist.
