Inc., a leader in intelligent imaging solutions, today announced the
Visioneer RoadWarrior, an easy-to-use, yet powerful mobile scanner
for handling all the document needs of the business traveler, from
expense receipts to business cards and documents for only $199.99. The
RoadWarrior software enables scanned receipts to be combined with
virtually any expense report form. Business card software provides
capture, recognition and exporting to leading contact managers, PDAs
and smart phones. The RoadWarrior is also an ideal solution for
scanning and converting documents into searchable Adobe Portable
Document Format (PDF) files that are easily organized, shared and
better protected. Visioneer also signed a distribution agreement to
bundle Google Search Tools that allow road warriors to quickly find
documents and maps for important business meetings.

“Today’s road warriors demand that every item in their bag do
double or triple duty and it needs to integrate with their existing
tools. We designed the RoadWarrior to handle business cards, receipts,
expense reports and business documents; as well as provide search and
retrieval of all files on your PC,” said John Capurso, vice president
of marketing at Visioneer. “We constantly survey mobile professionals
for their wish list.”

The Visioneer RoadWarrior, based on Visioneer’s award-winning
Strobe design, measures only 2″ x 1.5″ x 11.4″ and weighs a mere 10
ounces. The mobile scanner is powered through the USB port and
incorporates Visioneer’s patented AutoLaunch technology that
automatically begins the scanning process when a document is inserted
into the scanner. The combination of size, mobility and software allow
the Visioneer RoadWarrior to be the perfect traveling companion for
mobile professionals. It comes bundled with the full-versions of
leading software to scan receipts, business cards and documents for
only $199.99.

Visioneer also announced today that they have signed a
distribution agreement with Google Inc. to bundle Google Desktop
and Google Earth with Visioneer scanners. Google Desktop is a
client application that allows users to easily search their computer,
providing full text search over email, files, music, photos, chats,
viewed web pages, and more.

Combined with Nuance OmniPage Indexer, scanned document images are
OCR’d in the background and indexed to Google Desktop making both
paper and “born digital” files on a PC, searchable by content. Google
Earth is the only program that can deliver a 3D digital map and
directions of the entire earth via the Internet, “because every road
warrior needs to know where they are and where they’re going.” Users
can point and zoom to anyplace on the planet. Satellite images and
local facts zoom into view, enhanced by Google search to show local
points of interest and facts. “Visioneer recognizes the profound
impact that Google has had on the industry and has added these
powerful search, indexing and mapping solutions to enhance its product
line,” said Capurso.

Visioneer RoadWarrior – The Solution for a Paperless Road

Business professionals want the best easy-to-use products and full
function solutions whether on the go or in the office. Unlike other
receipt scanners, the RoadWarrior is compatible with virtually any
company’s expense report form whether in Excel-format, a customized
application or web-applet. With Nuance PaperPort, receipts and expense
reports are “stacked” as searchable PDF files, ready for digital
signature and retrievable later by simply searching on keywords such
as city, airline, hotel or restaurant name. Now any document
encountered by the business traveler (receipts, business cards, notes,
office documents, or directions) can be scanned, organized and shared.

— SCAN – Users can scan receipts, business cards, articles,
newspaper clippings, handwritten notes and photographs. The
RoadWarrior can scan documents up to 8 1/2″ wide and 14″ long.

— ORGANIZE – The RoadWarrior software bundle allows users to
stack their scanned receipts and expense report to make
submissions and approvals fast and paperless. In fact, when
combined with digital signatures and electronic reimbursement,
the receipt may be the last piece of paper touched by the
business traveler.

— SHARE – Because documents are scanned into a searchable PDF
format, users can easily send and share information that is
accurate and secure. Scanned receipts are now accepted by the
IRS and most corporate accounting departments.
