There are several scanner options for your business to think about. Make sure that the correct scanner is inline with what your business needs. 

Portable scanner- these can be especially useful for small businesses that have small amounts of scanning to do. They’re handheld and can fit in small desk space and even used for business trips 

Sheet-feed scanners- These scanners are fed into the scanner via the feed. These are bigger than the portables but still don’t take up a large amount of desk space. These are good for a steady stream of documents scanned throughout the day. 

Flatbed Scanners- This scanner is your best bet for a large about of scanned documents per day. These are often heavy duty and have the capactiy to handle large amounts of paper. Of the three scanners, this takes up the most room.
