I am trying to deploy a enterprise remote document scanning solution. I will be putting scanners on loan officers desks all over the contry, so the transmittal must be secure (ideally via SFTP) to a centralized loan processing center. There are only a handful of scanners that support SFTP and they are rather costly. The requirements are:
1) secure transmittal of scanned docs (ideally SFTP). This could be done with built in SFTP or an attachable USB to Ethernet device with an SFTP client built in. I don't want to have a seperate attached computer for numerous reasons.
2) ability to scan large files (i.e. 500 pages) quickly and as one document. The ADF can be smaller than 500 but it must be able to do continuous feed so one PDF is built.
3) Low cost so the scanning system can be replaced when they break (rather than paying for ans waiting on expensive parts)
Any input on the above would be greatly appreciated.
