Brother is enabling legal professionals to streamline document management and sharing with a range of single function scanners. Based on Brother’s scanning expertise in multifunction machines, the range consists of high speed, compact desktop scanners, designed to turn hard-copy documents into searchable, shareable digital information.

The scanner has a unique feature that enables users to scan directly to a USB host and users can also scan directly into Microsoft Office software, in order to edit documents. The ADS-2100’s TWAIN and ISIS scan drivers, which are available via free download, enable effortless integration into legal systems.

The ADS-2100 is ideal for fast scanning of high quality documents up to A3 and is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux. The scanner is designed to overcome the difficulties of digitalising a wide range of materials, as it is able to scan various different types of documents at once with multipage detection, as well as offering double sided scanning, making it ideal for scanning in contracts. Its bundled software enables users to create searchable PDFs, making it easy to find archived files using key words. This helps legal professionals quickly organise paper documents into a digital database.

Brother’s new products target the personal and desktop scanner market which is expected to double in size over the next three years* as businesses look to digitalise document workstreams and make paper archives more manageable.
