I love my new ScanSnap iX500 scanner. It is fast, about 25 pages per minute and very easy to use. I use it to:
The best part: I can actually find a document now whenever I need it. Say I get a call from a property owner, asking for a copy of his lease on a rental property from 4 years ago. In about 20 seconds, I have the lease in front of me on my computer. With about 3 clicks, I can email the lease directly to the owner. Now, that is impressive!
Or lets say an owner asks for a copy of a paid bill for his accountant – same story. I can find it in about 20 seconds or less. Clearly, this scanner is a real time saver.
With cloud services like Dropbox and iCloud Drive, you can have all of your files with you anywhere. Access them on the go from your iPad, iPhone, Android, etc. without lugging a 3 inch thick file to a closing. I can access everything online and it’s very impressive to clients. Who could ask for more!
The ScanSnap iX500 will actually pay for itself in a short period of time. The amount of time you will save in having all of your most important documents readily available, adds up quickly. As a Realtor, I need to be spending time with my clients, not looking for paperwork!
