The system also integrates with the Panasonic UC Pro unified communications solution for video communication, optional built-in call centre functionality and call monitoring.

Compact scanner

Fujitsu image scanner
Fujitsu image scanner

The fi-800R is a new Fujitsu image scanner designed for the front desk environment, combining passport, ID and document scanning. Fujitsu claims the fi-800R is the first scanner of its kind that doesn’t require a carrier sheet to protect passports, incorporating a return path mechanism that can process thicker items such as ID cards and passports including the MRZ (Machine-Readable Zone) alongside A4 documents.

Taking up half the space of alternative solutions, the fi-800R is ideal for the front desk, or any other place where space is tight. A U-turn path mechanism with automatic stacking technology ejects papers back up through the scanner, removing the need for a front output tray. Drastically reducing the machine’s footprint means the fi-800R can be used in spaces half the size of an A4 sheet.

Featuring an ADF with Fujitsu’s active separation technology, the fi-800R makes input smoother than ever, while automatic skew correction eliminates feed errors. Bundled PaperStream software optimises images for downstream processes, as well as extracting information to enrich customer profiles. Automatic Profile Selection, where staff no longer have to spend time sorting documents by format, and 40ppm/80ipm scan speed means customers can get on with their day in record time.
