Unlimited usage scenarios
The Wi-Fi connectivity and built-in lithium-ion battery provide users with the ultimate portable scanning experience. With the ScanSnap iX100, mobile workers have the freedom to carry out tasks from any location.

This makes the ScanSnap iX100 the capturing solution of choice for insurance agents, sales people, auditors, lawyers or any other professional who needs to scan documents in an environment outside his office. Users in small offices or students also benefit from the compact format and versatility of the device.
Adapts automatically to the network environment

New features for new efficiency
