ScanSnap Cloud – PC-less scanning directly to your cloud

With the introduction of the ScanSnap Cloud, we are launching a new free service that enables ScanSnap iX100 and ScanSnap iX500 customers to streamline document scanning workflows by transmitting data directly from ScanSnap to popular cloud services. ScanSnap Cloud speeds up and simplifies the process to scan and save important information by eliminating the need for PCs or smart devices for the scanning process. Taking one-button scanning one step further, ScanSnap Cloud automatically sorts and routes data directly to cloud-based services like Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive and other popular cloud services.

Streamlining workflows with ScanSnap Cloud

ScanSnap Cloud automatically classifies scanned documents into four categories: documents, receipts, business cards and photos. You simply define once which target system should automatically be addressed for each document category by selecting your favourite cloud services per category. ScanSnap Cloud then automatically sorts and delivers the data to the designated cloud service. View the ScanSnap Cloud video to learn more.


Innovative features                  

  • Automatic image processing: Before routing scanned documents to selected cloud services, ScanSnap Cloud optimises scanned images with automatic paper-size and colour detection, automatic page rotation and blank page removal.
  • Automatic file naming: Documents are automatically named using extracted keywords and dates.
  • Cloud service integration: ScanSnap Cloud supports integration with Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, OneDrive, and Box. In addition a ScanSnap Cloud SDK (Software Development Kit) is available and local cloud service providers are invited to collaborate with us and create a dedicated connector to their service that will empower taking paper directly to their cloud service offering.
  • Security: ScanSnap Cloud utilises Microsoft Azure servers, which are hosted in the European Union and protect cloud data with its robust security platform.


ScanSnap Cloud enables users of any operating system environment including Linux to step up to the ScanSnap platform and take full advantage of single touch paper-to-cloud perfection without installing a driver. All you need is a connection to your cloud service. For first time setup and control of ScanSnap Cloud, we provide apps which are available free of charge for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.
