Visioneer Mobility Receives Multiple Awards and Recognition | Visioneer

New cordless mobile scanner recognized for being “revolutionary”, “intuitive” and “awesome” by editors of top IT publications.

PLEASANTON, Calif., May 18, 2011 – Visioneer, Inc., a leader in intelligent document imaging solutions, today announced that the Visioneer Mobility is the recipient of the PC Magazine Editors’ Choice Award, received a perfect 5 out of 5 star rating from Network World Magazine, an 8 out of 10 rating from Mobile Magazine, and Editors Choice award from Businessinfo Magazine and extremely positive reviews from CRN Magazine and Inventor Spot.

According to the PC Magazine review, published on March 31, 2011, “the Mobility is way out in front of everyone else. Being able to see your scans on the spot, as long as you have a smartphone, is a big plus for scanning without a PC, and the high scores (for a portable scanner) for optical character recognition, document management, and business card management puts the Mobility in a class of its own in any case. If you need a portable document scanner, make sure this one winds up on your short list.”

The Network World review stated, “The cordless nature of the scanner and its ability to scan directly to memory cards without needing a connected PC opens up opportunities for scanning where they didn't exist before (mobile workers, field workers). On the consumer side, the scanner is an awesome way to take the shoe box or photo album filled with pre-digital camera photos and digitize them (for posting on social networks or just to store them in the cloud).

In addition to Network World, the CRN Test Center and Mobile Magazine had high praise for Mobility.

  • “Visioneer’s revolutionary mobile scanner is straightforward, intuitive, and can scan a full color document in three seconds flat. The device is positioned well to revolutionize mobile document imaging for several reasons, according to an evaluation by the CRN Test Center.”
  • “For the first truly portable scanner to hit the market, Visioneer did a fantastic job. Speed and accuracy are what you would expect from a portable scanner,” stated the review in Mobile Magazine.
