Features
  • ScanSnap Cloud can be used to automatically detect a type of image ("Documents", "Business Cards", "Receipts" or "Photos") created from a document that you scan, and sort and save the scanned images to a cloud service that you specified for each document type.

    For details about a cloud service that you can establish a link with, refer to the following:

  • An image of the document that you scanned is saved in a desired cloud service via the ScanSnap Cloud server. The ScanSnap Cloud server is a cloud server used exclusively with the ScanSnap.

    For regions where ScanSnap Cloud can be used, refer to here.

  • The ScanSnap and the ScanSnap Cloud server can be connected with each other via Wi-Fi. So, you can scan documents and save images with the ScanSnap alone. You do not need to start up a computer.

  • To use ScanSnap Cloud, you need to obtain a ScanSnap account in advance.

    Register a ScanSnap account in the ScanSnap account registration page.
