Fujitsu document scanners are the gold standard in both instances.

Fujitsu reputable for outstanding reliability

As a channel-centric organisation, PFU have made a significant investment to offer their partners a range of sales enablement tools to help them better understand and position the scan opportunity to their bases and adapt to the challenges of digitalisation.
Their award-winning Imaging Channel Program allows access to evaluation and discounted demonstration models, product toolkits, the ability to co-brand material, vertically aligned and solution focussed webinars, latest details on promotions as well as scanner configurator tools and training modules to help upskill staff.

Digital transformation brings new opportunities for document imaging and handling. This together with the compliance requirements of the POPI Act means that there is now a clear distinction in (and demand for) high-end, everyday scanning – in which much more complex scanning and capture scenarios are involved.
High volumes of sensitive documents, need to be captured at significantly higher speeds and need to be handled and stored correctly for future recall, data extraction and processing, in a safe and efficient manner without any loss or distortion of critical data.
This process can only be achieved with a dedicated document scanner with specialised software. This is where PFU – a Fujitsu company – has a clear advantage with over 36 years’ experience in the scanner business and still the market leader.
“Anyone can make a scanner but only Fujitsu scanners offers reliability, quality, efficiency and low total cost of ownership with the best capture technology available, combine this with our impressive enablement platforms, this is why we still remain the world’s number 1 document scanner manufacturer,” said Fujitsu.
