Well it's Fujitsu of course. You're not surprised are you? They're the UK's biggest scanning brand and a major global brand with over 50 years of credibility and have a great reputation within the public sector arena. With customers in education, healthcare and local government facing increasingly public demand for instant access to information, the benefits of document digitalisation has never been more relevant.
One of the biggest regulatory change in the last 20 years is the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Superseding national laws such as the UK Data Protection Act, it affects any organisation which processes personal data. In less than a year, all companies need to be compliant or run the risk of facing fines of up to 4% of their annual global turnover or £20 Million - whichever is greater.With new requirements for rights to access data, data erasure, portability and more, GDPR means that the capture, handling and housekeeping of personal data needs to be water-tight. This is where Fujitsu scanners can help.
It's not only the current Data Protection Act, Freedom of Information Act and Safeguarding Laws (and approaching GDPR) that require schools to be on top of their game when it comes to data storage and retrieval. Paper-based systems take up office space, hinder admin staff efficiency and back-up copies may not even exist. Fujitsu document scanners can provide effective and efficient solutions for village primary schools through to university campuses.

Recording student progress
Fujitsu document scanners are also being used within schools to help capture evidence of students' work and progress through the various key stages too. This white paper by NAACE in 2017 illustrates how Fujitsu document scanners could streamline the process. The A8 to A3 overhead Scansnap SV600 model is just one model popular with schools, coping with both delicate documents and the scanning of art work to ensure a complete digital trail of student progress.

More than ever before, the UK's healthcare industry is under scrutiny. Reducing budgets and staffing levels place even greater pressure on organisations and forces them to look at streamlining processes and saving costs.
Irrespective of GDPR, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt's vision is for the NHS to better utilise technologies in the coming years to address changing demands and to replace outdated processes. This video shows the immediate benefits digitalisation can bring.
Many of Fujitsu scanners are already certified and meet existing healthcare guidelines with all devices compliant with the EN60601-1-2 regulations which cover the use of technology in healthcare environments and electromagnetic capability. This John Radcliffe Hospital case study demonstrates how Fujitsu digitised large A3 Flow-Charts by using the predecessor of the fi-6750S, to help capture patient data.
