my ScanSnap ix500 has a box too…

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/03/04

So my ScanSnap ix500 has a box too (actually a Leitz Rotho Profiline 10 Schübe drawer). The ix500 scans double sided and takes like 2 seconds per sheet. Works through WiFi (or USB) on both PC and Mac.

This is the process:

  1. I scan and roughly sort the document by destination in a drawer.
  2. A Windows VM creates OCR PDF and puts them into the cloud.
  3. It gets synced to my Macs, where spotlight indexes them by content.
  4. Once a month I split off the parts for my bookkeeper, file important non bookkeeping stuff and shred the rest.
  5. I name files on a selective base (as spotlight is very good at finding the rest).

This is why I like it over scanning with your mobile phone any time:

My ix500 setup just works.

Now I need to optimise the S510 scanned files. Maybe linux – optimize PDF files (with Ghostscript or other) – Stack Overflow (from the same thread) works.
