Epson Expands Scanner Portfolio with WorkForce ES-580W, ES-500W II and ES-400 II Document Scanners for Busy Workgroups

Epson, the best-selling retail scanner brand in North America,1 is continuing its commitment to meeting the needs of small businesses and consumers with the expansion of its document scanner portfolio. Epson today announced three new document scanning solutions – the WorkForce ES-580WES-500W II and ES-400 II duplex desktop document scanners for efficient document management and seamless organization.

“From managing operations to interfacing with clients, small business professionals are often juggling multiple job roles. Paperwork can be an easy thing to put off, but eventually can pile up and become difficult to manage,” said Carrie Fox, director, Scanner Product Management, Epson America. “With the expanded Epson WorkForce desktop scanner portfolio, users have more options to quickly and easily digitize documents, allowing them to save valuable time and focus on what’s most important – running their business.”

Ideal for any business or home office workspace, the wireless WorkForce ES-580W and ES-500W II scanners help maximize productivity and allow users to easily scan to a smartphone, tablet or cloud storage accounts,2 including Dropbox®, Evernote®, Google Drive™ and OneDrive, from a desktop or mobile device using the Epson Smart Panel app.3 With the WorkForce ES-580W, users can scan directly to a USB memory drive without using a computer. The ES-580W features an intuitive 4.3” touchscreen for quick, effortless navigation, and a 100-sheet auto document feeder so users can breeze through stacks of documents with varying paper types and sizes in one batch.

All three high-performance document scanners boast fast scan speeds of up to 35 ppm/70 ipm4 and include intuitive Epson ScanSmart® Software5 so users can easily preview, email and upload scans. Offering efficient scanning, they capture both sides of each sheet in one pass. They feature TWAIN drivers for seamless integration with most document management software, and intelligent color and image adjustment features such as auto crop, staple protection, dirt detection, and paper-skew correction for remarkable image quality. With the versatile scanners, users can scan extra-long pages up to 240”, business/ID cards and more.
