Choosing a scanner

Looking for a scanner to use with DoxCycle? 

Most scanners work with DoxCycle. If you’re buying new and want the easiest process look for a scanners with the following specifications.

What to look for...

We recommend buying a scanner with the following specs:

  • TWAIN-compliant. This means DoxCycle can directly control the scanner. Most scanners on the market are TWAIN compliant, but a few popular scanners (like the Fujitsu ScanSnap) are not. 
  • Document feeder. Pick a scanner with a document feeder so you can stack papers and let it do the work of feeding them in. (A flatbed scanner means you'll need to swap each page out one at a time. 

DoxCycle supports Fujitsu ScanSnap via an alternate workflow, but if you're going to buy a new one, we suggest the TWAIN-compliant models for the most efficient processing.

What to avoid...

Avoid scanners set-ups that are:

  • Multi-function. We've found that the configuration of multi-function machines can be more challenging.
  • Not directly connected to the computer running DoxCycle.  While it seems like a great idea to have one scanner accessible to everyone in the office, it adds extra work for your staff if they need to walk over and feed in the receipts.
