Well ladies and gentlemen its official, we have successfully put another AIIM Expo under our collective belts.
For those new to the document / content management space, AIIM is the acronym for the Association for Information and Image Management.
This international association holds a yearly event in the US that pulls together major players in the hardware and software ECM space to inform, educate and allow attendees time to network amongst peers.
Several established Ingram Micro vendors such as Microsoft, HP, Oracle, EMC and Canon (to name a few) had a presence at this year’s event that clearly demonstrated a collective commitment to draw continued awareness to the legitimacy of ECM as not only a “want to have”, but a “got to have” solution for all levels of business.
Some of the quick specifications hardware highlights from a few of our partners included:
Fujitsu showcasing the FI-6800
Resolution: 50-600 dpi (600 optical)
Simplex and Duplex
Scanning speeds up to 130 ppm (260 in duplex)
ADF capacity 500 Sheets
Triple Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection
Intelligent MultiFeed Function and retain image feature
All this in an unbelievable footprint and the MSRP breaks the $20k price point.
It was also a pleasant surprise to see partners highlighted not only the tree eating monster scanners we are all use to, but they also took time to mention the practical side of the imaging world as well:
HP spotlighted a cool mobile imaging unit, the Scanjet 1000.
Quick specifications are:

Well, that’s it for now, see you next round.
