Canon Expands Partner Opportunity With A New Ultra-Compact, Network-Connected Scanner For Small Businesses


Today, we’re announcing a new and easy-to-use desktop scanner, designed with flexible USB and WiFi connectivity, to help you give even more support to small businesses, wherever their workspace is set up. Building on the successful format of our imageFORMULA DR-S150, the new imageFORMULA DR-S130 answers the call for a robust and high-performance digitisation solution for any small or home office.

Meeting evolving customer needs for flexible connectivity

With the compact imageFORMULA DR-S130 desktop scanner, our partners will benefit from additional opportunities to support small businesses and office teams as they continue adapting to new working environments. The device provides much needed flexibility, offering both WiFi and USB connectivity alongside, the native CaptureOnTouch Pro software, which boasts a user-friendly interface with a simple icon-based operation. Effective shortcuts can be configured for frequently performed tasks to save and send documents to different destinations, including cloud services, such as OneDrive and Dropbox.

Perfect for on-the-go, at-home and small-office usage, the new device can be activated from a smartphone or directly from a PC or MacBook. Files can then be automatically scanned and sorted using zonal OCR, barcode and 2D code recognition, helping your customers process information and sort it into existing workflows and document management systems. This supports easier collaboration between their teams and relieves administrative burden on employees, saving on valuable business time and resource. The compact desktop footprint offers flexibility for their office environments, without compromising on space – or productivity.

Enhance customer performance with a device they can depend on

The DR-S130 works out-of-the-box, without the need for additional resources or an IT team. Its robust design ensures reliable, productive performance for busy workloads of up to 3,500 scans a day and scanning 60 images per minute. PUSH scan functionality means customers can send scanned files directly from the device to an output destination and avoid rerouting via a PC, further saving resources and time.

Versatile document processing to meet your customers every need

Resellers know that even small businesses still require easy document filing, editing and distribution. That is why the imageFORMULA DR-S130 is equipped with reliable, versatile feeding, to allow customers to scan a variety of documents from thin to thick, including plastic ID cards, embossed cards and passports. Its heavy-duty feed and separation rollers make batch scanning of mixed documents simple and intuitive. With ultrasonic double-feed detection, businesses can be assured that all documents are scanned and no information goes missing. Using Active Threshold mode, features like auto colour detection, text orientation recognition, automatic paper size detection and deskew can save your customers valuable time without the need to adjust settings, while delivering consistently high-quality results.

Tim Brosnihan, European Product Manager, Canon Europe says

“We are very proud of our imageFORMULA series, which allows our partners to make scanning accessible and easy-to-use for all businesses, no matter their setup. As digital transformation is fast becoming a matter of survival for businesses around the world, we wanted to open up opportunities with smaller business customers by creating a tailored product to suit their needs, without compromising on quality of design, performance or productivity. The compact footprint, PUSH scan functionality and connectivity options make it a flexible addition to any small or remote office, whether at home or in a shared building. With a range of document scanning options, whatever the customer need, the imageFORMULA DR-S130 delivers quick, high quality results keeping their daily work flowing as a priority.”
