Three Simple Steps to Manage the Paper in Your Life | Visioneer

PLEASANTON, Calif., July 10, 2015 – It is time to change the way we manage paper. If you have stacks on your desk, in your briefcase or on the floor, your current method is not working. The secret to managing the paper in your life is easier than you think; simply Sort, Scan and Share. The goal of achieving a paperless life is to make the process of finding and sharing the information you need easier. After all, users don’t want the paper; they want the information that is on the paper.

Organize and Share Anywhere
Visioneer today announces such a solution to this dilemma, the Visioneer RoadWarrior 4D for Windows® and Mac®. This small, duplex document scanner is the only tool you need for daily document management. The RoadWarrior 4D is about the size of a rolled up magazine and weighs a little more than a small bottle of water, so it takes up very little space on a desk and packs easily in a laptop bag. Perfect for the busy professional who needs a fast (one page takes only 8 seconds to scan) and reliable mobile scanner. It is powered through your computer’s USB port so it can work anywhere, even when AC power is unavailable or incompatible. The RoadWarrior 4D scans paper or hard plastic cards as small as 1.5” (38mm) and documents up to 8.5” (216mm) wide and 32” (813mm) long.

By combining the RoadWarrior 4D and this simple 3 step process, you will be on your way to a more organized you.

  1. Start with just 10 documents and SORT them into two piles: 1) Documents you need to keep and 2) Documents you want to share.
  2. SCAN all of the documents you need to keep (financial statements, medical records and insurance policies) into searchable PDF files and store the originals in a safe place. Saving to searchable PDF allows the information to be incorporated into document management systems and easy find later when you have a question.
  3. Documents that you want to SHARE (business cards, magazine articles or recipes) should also be scanned to PDF but set your destination to your email program or the cloud so the digital files can be easily shared. PDF format ensures that anyone will be able to open it the file and see it displayed exactly like the original.

Once scanned, you can shred all those miscellaneous pieces of paper that were cluttering your life. Of course, valuable originals like legal documents, birth certificates, etc., should be saved in a safe storage location. The result paper that once cluttered your space is now digital and your physical space is no longer stressing you out.

“Managing the volume of paper you encounter in your personal and business life is not just about reducing clutter, it is a state of mind allowing the brain to focus on the tasks at hand and release you from the memorization and worry of finding that paper you saw six months ago,” said Walt Thinfen, President & CEO at Visioneer. “The Visioneer RoadWarrior 4D is the optimal solution for mobile or space-saving document scanning with robust PC and Mac TWAIN drivers. It is a versatile mobile scanner that requires no AC power, which makes scanning possible anywhere.”
