LONG BEACH, Calif. – Dec. 4, 2018 – Epson America, a leading provider of digital imaging solutions, today expanded its portable scanning portfolio with the WorkForce® ES-50 and 60W document scanners, as well as the WorkForce ES-55R and ES-65WR receipt scanners equipped with advanced accounting management tools. Boasting extraordinary speeds, both the ES-50 and ES-55R scan a single page in as fast as 5.5 seconds1, while the ES-60W and ES-65WR scan a single page in as fast as 4 seconds2.
The new, extremely fast and lightweight ES-50, ES-55R, ES-60W and ES-65WR, bundled with Epson ScanSmart Software3, make it easy for users to scan, organize, email, and upload important documents to popular cloud services4. With automatic file and folder naming functionality, and an intuitive user interface, Epson ScanSmart Software3 saves users time and simplifies workflow by offering easy scanning options, editing and integration tools.
The ES-55R is the fastest and lightest mobile single-sheet-fed document scanner in its class5, while the flagship ES-65WR is the fastest, smallest and lightest wireless mobile single-sheet-fed document scanner in its class6.
