Over the course of a two-week testing period, Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI), a provider of critical intelligence on the imaging industry, determined that the Panasonic (News - Alert) KV-S1046C scanner was a “highly recommended” product – a highly coveted rating.
The rating was concluded by a team of highly-experienced technicians who tested the scanner based on its reliability, optical character recognition, ease of use, productivity and efficiency and value and connectivity concerns, such as administrative utilities and drivers.
After the two-week testing period, BLI determined that the KV-S1046C scanner had many differentiating strengths, including:
- High reliability
- Faster than average scan speeds at 200 dpi
- Higher than average OCR accuracy for all documents tested
- Larger than average ADF capacity
- Scans long documents up to 100-inches, which is ideal for healthcare facilities
- No slowdown when duplex scanning
- Up to 50 scan profiles provide users with flexibility
- Easy to install and simple user maintenance procedures
“The Panasonic KV-S1046C proved to be a strong overall competitor against similarly equipped A4 scanners in this speed range,” explained the Comprehensive BLI Laboratory Evaluation, released in September 2012. “Based on its very good overall performance, BLI highly recommends the KV-S1046C for workgroups and departments looking for a fast and robust digital capture system at a reasonable price.”
"As a leading provider of analytical information to the digital imaging and document management industry, BLI provides small and medium businesses critical product information and recommendations," said Justin Tomasz Sadkowski, product marketing specialist, Small and Medium Business, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, in a statement. "This acknowledgement is further validation of Panasonic's commitment to deliver high quality, reliable products that meet the needs of today's business professionals."
This “highly recommended” rating displays outstanding overall performance during its testing. Needless to say, the KV-S1046C has proven itself to be a highly reliable product, especially after having been subjected to BLI’s rigorous 10,000 sheet durability test.
