ScanSnap Expands Offering with iX1500

One button scanning delivers the smarter way to work 

Hayes, UK, October 2nd, 2018 – PFU (EMEA) Limited, a Fujitsu company, the world's leading scanner manufacturer, today announced the launch of the ScanSnap iX1500 , a new personal document scanner designed to offer businesses, home users and small teams, the smarter way to work. The latest model in the ScanSnap line comes with one touch technology enabling users to carry out pre-programmed scans with the touch of a button. 

The iX1500 combines smart technology and intuitive design that promotes collaboration, revolutionises personal productivity, and lets users focus on what really matters. It turns the old way of scanning on its head; instead of scanning a document and choosing what you want to do with it each time, now, after your first simple set-up, one-touch does it all. 

The iX1500 stays true to the ScanSnap brand proposition of improving personal productivity – helping people to automate time-consuming tasks with market-leading technology that has simplicity at its core. This approach has seen ScanSnap sell over 4 million units. 

“New technologies have had a profound impact on the way we work, supporting small businesses and consumers in the changing office environment,” explains Mike Nelson, Senior Vice President, PFU (EMEA) Limited. “Fast, always-on computing has increased demand for technology that is simple, collaborative and enables users to take control and focus on getting things done. The iX1500 has been designed to help small businesses and individual users find a smarter way to work. From the easy-to-use touchscreen to the intuitive software that automatically sorts and processes documents, the ScanSnap iX1500 helps to make paper work.” 

Key features include: 


  • Just one touch: Documents can be scanned and saved with the press of a single large colour coded button on the iX1500’s 4.3-inch touchscreen, making scanning fast and fuss-free.
  • A home to everyone: Using just one screen, the iX1500 enables multiple users to pre-programme and automate repetitive tasks, such as scanning a receipt into a spreadsheet or saving a scan into a folder. Multiple software licenses mean users can share their iX1500 with family members and colleagues1.
  • New levels of control: The all-new ScanSnap Home combines your favorite ScanSnap software*4 functions into a single application. In addition to organising and managing their documents, users can now also preview, tag, search and retrieve documents in a few clicks2,3. The built in Wi-Fi and Direct Connect Mode also means users can scan anywhere they want – with and without Wi-Fi.
  • Adapts to you: The intuitive device automatically names files and recognises photos, receipts, business cards and other documents, scanning and sending them to a preferred destination without the user needing to adjust settings. It can also scan unconventional documents such as envelopes, plastic cards, and documents that have been folded or have sticky notes on them.
  • Outstanding design: The iX1500 delivers beautiful form as well as function. Styled to fit into the modern office or home, it can handle documents up to A3 in size, while the handy Receipt Guide also enables seamless scanning of smaller items or even mixed document sizes. 
  • Fast scanning: The iX1500 scans up to 30 double sided colour sheets per minute and is ready to go as soon as you lift the cover.
