Visioneer RoadWarrior Receives LAPTOP Magazine Editors’ Choice Award for Best Portable Scanner | Visioneer

PLEASANTON, Calif., October 7, 2008 – Visioneer, Inc., a leader in intelligent document imaging solutions, today announced that the Visioneer RoadWarrior is the recipient of the LAPTOP Editors’ Choice Award for best portable scanner. LAPTOP Magazine Editors award this honor annually to a few select technology products, which they deem to be the best in the field.


The LAPTOP Editors’ Choice Award is only bestowed on a product after it has been tested and evaluated based upon five criteria: design, ease of use, features, performance, and overall value. LAPTOP Magazine Editors awarded the Visioneer RoadWarrior their top choice because the scanner demonstrated superiority to the competition both in terms of utility and innovation.


“The Visioneer team constantly strives to provide the best document management solutions and awards like these stand out as an acknowledgement of the contributions of everyone at Visioneer,” said John Capurso, vice president of marketing at Visioneer.


Paperwork Done Before You Get Home

Users on the go encounter contracts, receipts, business cards, and many other documents while away from their office. The Visioneer RoadWarrior empowers them to capture and manage this paper while it is still timely to their travels, not days later when they return home. Expense reports and receipts can be submitted promptly, business cards get captured and sync’d with Outlook or Blackberry devices or other smartphones and PDAs.


The RoadWarrior is a fast, portable scanner that measures only 2” x 1.5” x 11.4” and weighs a mere 10 ounces. It has a color resolution of 600 x 1200 dpi and users can scan regardless of location because it is powered through the USB port. It includes Nuance PaperPort, Nuance Omni Page and NewSoft Presto! BizCard software that enables scanned documents, business cards and receipts to be easily organized, shared and searched. Utilizing patented Visioneer AutoLaunch technology, scanning begins by simply inserting a document into the scanner.


Unlike other receipt scanners, the RoadWarrior includes Visioneer OneTouch® with Kofax® VRS™ technology that automatically improves the image quality of poor original documents, such as receipts that are hardly legible, handwritten notes, highly stylized business cards, multi-part shipping forms that have smudge marks, and reports highlighted with markers.


Price and Availability

The RoadWarrior is priced at $199.99 and is available through retail and online channel partners and major resellers.
