Best Network ready document scanner for the lowest price

I have a client that needs to have a scanner available to everyone in the organization, but it is used for sensitive documents.

I am thinking that if people could scan to their email or to their user folder, this would be a perfect solution.

Anyone have any recommendations for how I can achieve this for the lowest cost?

You do realist that "best" and "cheapest" are almost 100% mutually exclusive.

You don't say how big the organization is.

The *best* network scanning solution I've seen for smaller operations is to use a Canon MX series multi-function printer. Once set up, when you scan a document, the scanner asks you which PC to send the scans to, and that's where they go - up to you to make sure they stay safe after that.

For larger systems, the option may still be Canon - their big printer/copier/scanner systems have all sorts of options. THe only one I use is configured to dump all scans in a single network folder which all users have access to (so they can get their own scans) but I believe it can be set up with individual user accounts. Check with your local Canon photocopier supplier (these are sold/rented through that chain rather than through PC peripheral channels.)

Thanks for the answer. I was hoping that someone would either tell me about something I hadn't found or confirm what I had already learned.
Thanks again!
