    PlanOn System Solutions Inc., the world leader in scanning and printing solutions for the mobile professional, introduced today SlimScan, the world’s first credit card-sized portable full color scanner that lets you scan and organize receipts and business cards on the road. A full-featured, powerful, tiny high resolution color scanner so small (dimensions: 2” x 3.1” x .12”) and light that it easily fits into your wallet or credit card holder -- SlimScan goes everywhere you go for scanning as fast and easy as pulling out your wallet. With its convenient size and advanced scanning technology, SlimScan is perfect for capturing crisp clear full-color digital images of small, easily misplaced items, like receipts, business cards, handwritten notes, as well as photos, articles and other printed materials, anywhere, any time.


    Features Preview Screen – Connects to Windows through USB
    Crafted in classy, durable stainless steel, SlimScan features a convenient preview screen that lets you instantly view, zoom-in and pan scanned images on the fly. Its elegant compact design sets a new standard for professional-class portable scanners with unprecedented convenience and powerful scanning functionality. The only portable scanner that puts instant, one-touch scanning in the palm of your hand, SlimScan connects directly to Windows PCs through USB to quickly upload and edit scanned items.

    Get Reimbursed Faster for Business Expenses - Track Expenditures
    Busy business pros (especially those who travel) deal with a blizzard of receipts. With SlimScan, organizing them is a snap. Whenever you take out your wallet to pay, just take out your SlimScan and scan the receipt at the same time, or scan while you’re waiting on the plane, train, or in the hotel. Creating digital images ensures that you will never lose an expense receipt on the road again. You can create folders to organize receipts by business trip, client, travel date, location, week, or month, and create reports to expedite expense reimbursements. SlimScan also helps business professionals, small business owners, and homeowners track expenditures by purchase type, expense category, month, or year to see where the money goes. SlimScan is also ideal for creating and managing digital copies of receipts and purchase records for returns, warrantees and insurance purposes. It makes it easy to return purchases without the hassle of searching for lost receipts. And unlike paper originals that can be easily lost, SlimScan’s copies can be digitally stored for re-printing whenever you need them.

    Receipt Management System (RMS) Software Included - Import Business Cards into Outlook, Word, Excel, & Databases
    With PlanOn’s included powerful, yet straightforward Receipt Management System (RMS) software, you can easily scan, edit and organize receipts, import them to a computer for viewing, transfer them into an expense database, and create Excel reports which can be easily emailed. RMS’ business card capture module also lets you easily organize scanned business card contacts by meeting, trade show, conference, or business event. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software can convert scanned images into editable form so you can import the contact information into Outlook, Microsoft Word or Excel spreadsheets to facilitate your follow up

    SlimScan Features:
    • Receipts: Organizes receipts and business expenses. Creates digital copies of receipts for returns, which you can re-print whenever you need them.

    • Promotional Gifts: SlimScan can be given out as promotional gifts imprinted with a company logo.
    • Dimensions: 2” x 3.1” x .12”.
    • Resolution: 300 dpi, 24 bit color.
    • Memory: Stores 600 images.
    “We know that almost everyone can benefit from capturing receipt, business card and other info – but then, why doesn’t everyone do it?” said Doug Verkaik, CEO of Planon. “Our research indicates it was mainly a matter of convenience. So we set out to design a scanner everyone can easily carry – that fits in their wallet!”

    SlimScan is also great for sales people as a promotional item. It can be imprinted with a company logo as a gift to show appreciation to clients. A company’s corporate logo and message can be placed on the unit or on the LCD screen and marketing files can be stored in SlimScan’s memory for customers or staff to view.

    Availability & Pricing
    The SlimScan scanner with special software bundle (SS100-RMS) is available immediately from PlanOn here and leading retailers, priced at $139.99 MSRP.
