Recommended Scanners

Scan123 requires a TWAIN compliant document scanner. Not all TWAIN compliant scanners are recommended due to various reasons. This is our list of ones we’ve had most success with and ones we did not.

Certified Scanners

We recommend the Fujitsu-fi series scanners because we’ve found them to be extremely reliable and long-lasting.  Fujitsu-fi scanners are currently the only scanner's that are compliant with VelocityFile.

Fujitsu:

All fi-7000 series
fi-7180
fi-7160
fi-7140
fi-7030
Any fi-8000 series (higher priced)
Any fi-6000 series (can be difficult to find)

Other Recommendations (Not Certified)

Our software has worked with most other desktop scanners that use a TWAIN compliant driver. These are not certified with Scan123 but will work. We do warn that depending on the Scanner, some settings require additional configuration and some issues can occur due to the Scanner's Manufacturer software and not Scan123.
