LONG BEACH, Calif. – July 18, 2019 – Epson America, a leading scanner brand, today announced Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Laboratory (BLI), the leading independent evaluator of document imaging software, hardware and services, has named the Epson® DS-80W as its pick for “Outstanding Mobile Scanner” in the Scanner category of BLI’s Summer 2019 Pick awards.

The products and solutions that stand out from the competition, providing the most outstanding performance with the highest evaluation scores, are awarded a Pick award within their respective industry category. Buyers Lab credited Epson’s DS-80W for its powerful scanning capabilities, exceptional software bundle, flexible media handling – from business cards to receipts, convenient automatic feeding mode, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

“The Epson DS-80W mobile scanner helps on-the-go-workers be productive no matter where they go,” said Lee Davis, editor of scanner/software evaluation at Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab. “Rare for mobile scanners, the DS-80W comes with a built-in lithium-ion battery so you can scan even if there isn’t a power outlet available.

Users can convert hardcopy documents into fully searchable, editable file types, clean up and edit scanned images, and integrate them directly into workflows, cloud services, business applications, and more.”
