Tami Henry has been an accountant for 15 years, currently working at the offices of Terry M. Rabe, CPA. Tami’s responsibilities include prepping the accounting documents for various small businesses during tax season, as well as handling tax returns and archiving all of the original documents filed. The job role requires her to ensure that all documents and records are saved and filed for review in an ongoing and timely manner. Her scanning duties become even more sensitive (and time intensive) when it is tax season (January 1st-April 15th).

“Our offices recently implemented going paperless with all accounting services for several clients,” explained Tami. “We use the Plustek SmartOffice PS286 Plus on a daily basis to scan supporting documentation for tax returns and forms like W-2s and 10-99s. We no longer keep any paper files on the tax clients.”

Tami uses the SmartOffice PS286 Plus with eFileCabinet software that offers solutions to store, share, and protect their valuable and confidential business data assets.

Tami finds relief in a dedicated document scanning solution that is convenient, efficient, and produces quality images. The Plustek SmartOffice PS286 Plus is a 25-page-per-minute, color duplex document scanner that features an integrated, flip out 50-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF). The PS286 Plus can scan batches of mixed sized documents from business card-sized up to 8.5″ x 17”, including embossed ID cards and driver’s licenses.

Tami appreciates how technologically advanced her office has become.“Right after I scan my pages, they are immediately displayed right up on my computer screen,” said Tami. “The Plustek SmartOffice PS286 Plus and eFileCabinet software save me time not having to go pull physical files, when I can pull it up with just a few clicks of my mouse.”

Although Tami’s office also has a competitive brand scanner, she is happy with the Plustek scanner because of the quality and price. “The quality is comparable in the job both scanners do, no paper jams or mis-feeds, but the price of the competitive scanner is twice as much,” said Tami. “I would recommend the Plustek SmartOffice PS286 Plus scanner to CPA’s, accountants, and small businesses that have a need for wanting to save any documents electronically.”

The Plustek SmartOffice PS286 Plus is an ideal solution for accountants, financial institutions, hospitals, law firms, and small businesses. The Plustek SmartOffice PS286 Plus is a compact, high-speed desktop scanning solution that effortlessly converts paper into digital files. The SmartOffice PS286 Plus offers industry standard TWAIN and Windows® WIA drivers so you can be assured of compatibility with virtually any imaging software or accounting software. The convenient, programmable Single-Touch function button permits users to preset 9 customized functions for different scanning jobs. Users can create searchable PDFs, scan to emails, OCRs, or file documents by simply pressing a button. The SmartOffice PS286 Plus is bundled with a powerful suite of software applications and includes advanced features such as blank page deletion, color dropout for forms, auto-crop and de-skew to enhance image quality, increase OCR accuracy, and reduce re-scans.
