There's a lot to like about the DocuMate 272 – the faster, better, easier-to-use workgroup scanner solution for vertical markets that need to scan plastic ID cards as well as mixed sized documents. 30% faster than the leading brand workgroup scanner in duplex mode, the DocuMate 272 is the price and performance leader in its category. It also includes a powerful suite of applications that improve image quality, OCR accuracy, and document management. And its revolutionary One Touch scanning and small compact size make it easy to use on any desktop or in any department.

Healthcare and Medical Markets
When a patient is admitted to the hospital, the registration staff makes a copy of the patient’s driver’s license and insurance card to put with the file. The insurance information is then keyed into the database. In healthcare, about 20% of the claims submitted by hospitals are denied by the insurance companies. Ninety percent of those are due to typographical errors. By scanning patient documents, insurance cards and driver’s licenses at patient registration and creating a digital image accessible to the patient’s authorized care providers; hospitals can reduce registration time, solve data inaccuracy problems and improve customer relationships.

Work Faster
The DocuMate 272 quickly handles many different tasks at hand – right at the desktop. It has a 50-page automatic document feeder that scans up to 66 images per minute using dual CCDs – doubling your speed and productivity for two-sided documents.

Work Better

A searchable PDF feature lets you send, copy, paste, re-use, and highlight text while maintaining the integrity of the original document image.

The bundled Kofax VRS software provides such capabilities as autoexposure and wide angle de-skew. VRS also helps improve the accuracy of recognition software, thereby reducing the need for manual correction of intelligent character recognition and OCR results.
And document size is not an issue for the DocuMate 272. It scans everything from business cards and photos up to legal-size documents, with superior image quality.

Work Easier
