Keypoint Intelligence, the leading market research firm and independent evaluator of print and smart workplace technology and services, announces that Brother has won two Buyers Lab (BLI) 2023 Scanner Pick Awards, based on how well the devices performed during Keypoint Intelligence lab testing.

“The Brother ADS-4700W and ADS-4900W tout many of the features that you would want from a shared workgroup scanner, including support for a wide range of media types and easy integration with business applications that underpin your business,” said Lee Davis, Senior Analyst in Keypoint Intelligence’s Office Group. “The devices are lightweight and do not require a lot of desk or counter space, and each unit can also be deployed as a wireless standalone scanner so there is no need for a connected PC—simply place either device where it’s convenient for the team to use and start scanning. For these reasons and many others, it was plain to see that the Brother ADS-4700W was deserving of a BLI Pick Award.”

Making repeatable processes simple on users is a critical facet of technology in the present day, especially in the post-COVID, hybrid business world, and here the Brother ADS-4700W once again shines. It enables organizations to accelerate and standardize recurring scanning workflows, as users can store up to 56 shortcuts on the touchscreen, with available document handling, image processing, and data extraction settings. What could be easier than kicking off entire scan processes with the press of a button? The Brother ADS-4700W does just that—and way more.

“This recognition from Keypoint Intelligence reflects Brother’s commitment to providing customers with imaging devices that meet evolving customer and business document management needs for how work now works,” said Fernando Maroniene, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Brother USA. “The ADS-4700W and ADS-4900W Professional Desktop Scanners help streamline workflows while providing advanced security features and easy integration into existing processes and systems.”
