CMP’s VARBusiness Magazine Named Fujitsu fi-5110C Scanner a Midmarket ‘Product of the Year’

SAN JOSE , Calif.
May 2, 2005

Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a market leader in document imaging scanners and services, today announced that the Fujitsu fi-5110C compact desktop scanner was named a midmarket “Product of the Year” by CMP Media’s VARBusiness magazine. The Fujitsu fi-5110C scanner leverages the industry-leading technology found in departmental and production-level scanners at an affordable price of $895 (U.S. list) and is ideal for decentralized or workgroup scanning applications.

The Fujitsu fi-5110C scanner is featured and profiled in the special May 2 VARBusiness “State of the Midmarket” issue. VARBusiness, a biweekly magazine that provides strategic insight to technology integrators solicited input from information-technology (IT) vendors and solution providers to determine which products and services were best suited for midmarket customers – companies with between 100 and 999 employees. Entries were considered and reviewed by VARBusiness editors who selected only 100 of the more than 400 nominated products.

“Our readers tell us that the middle market is one of the fastest-growing IT categories today,” says VARBusiness Publisher Robert C. DeMarzo. “The Fujitsu fi-5110C scanner is one that best meets that segment’s needs.”

The Fujitsu fi-5110C scanner features reliable paper-handling from business cards and checks to legal-sized and other long documents, as well as high-speed USB 2.0 connectivity, a 50-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF), and double feed detection. The scanner has fast scan speeds up to 15 ppm (simplex) / 30 ipm (duplex) and excellent image quality with 600 dpi optical resolution and dual-CCD scanning arrays to capture fine details in color or monochrome.

“Fujitsu provides its partners with award-winning, reliable, robust, and cost-effective document imaging solutions and services,” said Victor Kan, vice president, sales and marketing, Imaging Products Group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America. “The Fujitsu fi-5110C scanner is a simple, compact desktop scanner that assists our midmarket customers with simplifying their business process with outstanding paper handling features, scanning functionality and service offerings. We are thrilled to receive this acknowledgement from the VAR community.”

The Fujitsu fi-5110C scanner comes standard with Adobe® Acrobat® 6.0 Standard and ScandAll 21 which allow users to quickly and easily integrate the scanner into existing workflows. The scanner also comes with TWAIN and ISIS driver support included. It can be purchased through authorized resellers, VARs, and distributors including Compucenter de Mexico, Cranel Imaging, Ingram Micro, NewWave Technology, and Tech Data.
