Space-saving design

The ScanFront 300/300P is simple to use, easy to manage and offers the smallest footprint in its class allowing it to be positioned almost anywhere in the office. With a stylish robust design they fit well in customer service points for easy point of capture.

Increase productivity

The ScanFront 300/300P helps streamline workflows and reduce costs with productive scanning speeds of up to 30ppm/60ipm. Office workers can quickly send documents securely to various destinations across the network, including sending to multiple destinations at once - saving time and costs.

User-friendly operation

The ScanFront 300/300P offers users a simple and convenient experience. A large high-definition colour touch screen lets teams navigate menus quickly and confidently, while personalised job buttons ensure swift and accurate file distribution.

Robust security

Advanced security features help you maintain control of your critical information. Secure user authentication and fingerprint recognition (ScanFront 300P only) prevent unauthorised access to the corporate network. For added protection, you can restrict access to certain scanner features for individual users.

Convenient remote management

The ScanFront 300/300P network scanners are simple to deploy and manage and help reduce IT costs. Adding a scanner to the network requires no additional hardware or software. IT managers can remotely update, backup, and restore multiple devices through a simple web browser, or simultaneously with the ScanFront Administration Tool.

Seamless integration

Integration with document management systems is simple thanks to customised index file and image file naming, enabling easier file classification and retrieval.

Reliability you can depend on

With a straight-through paper path and robust feeder, scan reliably mixed document weights and sizes at the same time. On the ScanFront 300P an ultrasonic double feed sensor prevents any overlapped documents from going undetected.

Environmentally positive

With up to 70% lower energy consumption than similar products, the ScanFront 300/300P can help fulfil your company's energy reduction objectives.

Unique and Easy Customisation

A Software Development Kit is available to integrators to develop unique scanning capture solutions with the ScanFront Network Scanner. Further information is available through Canon’s Business Solutions Developer Programme (BSDP).
