Epson launches new, fast document scanner with auto data extraction

Epson has launched the WorkForce ES-500WR document scanner bundled with two feature-rich software packages, Epson’s ScanSmart Accounting Edition Software and Nuance® Power PDF software. Designed for small business and home users, the ES-500WR scanner has been specifically designed to streamline the processes of organising and sharing financial documents.

The new, intuitive Epson ScanSmart Accounting Edition Software1 delivers advanced accounting document management tools to easily preview, email, upload and organise receipts, invoices, financial documents and more. The receipt manager function can automatically extract data from receipts and invoices, and export to QuickBooks® Online or Excel, saving users time and eliminating the need for manual entry or possible human error. The automatic file naming and receipt recognition tool, with machine-learning capabilities, identifies important data such as vendor names and logos, and streamlines the process of storing and finding critical data and documents2.

With versatile scanning features, the ES-500WR scanner allow users to wirelessly scan two-sided reports, business cards and receipts to laptops (PC or Mac), tablets and smartphones and easily scan to cloud storage accounts or to searchable PDFs and editable Word and Excel® files3.

In addition, Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection is included to prevent missing pages as well as features such as Dynamic Skew Correction.

Also included with the WorkForce WorkForce ES-500WR scanner is Nuance® Power PDF software for Windows® and PDF Converter for Mac, which allows users to create, convert and assemble searchable PDFs, as well as annotate, highlight and redact.
