If you are a small business owner, then you know what it is like to always be on the go. You are probably never home and never in your office, so you will need mobile devices that can keep up with you, such as smart phones and portable scanners. Another great investment is software that will help you to sync all of your devices, including mobile and stationary devices, with one another so that you will not have to go through and update each document on each device separately. You will also automatically be able to back-up anything that you change, add, edit, or update; so something that you have documented with portable scanners will be saved on every mobile device and computer that you have. This way, if you lose one of your portable scanners, the document will already have been saved in multiple places and all you need to do is access one of those places to get to your saved information. You can call one of your employees to do this, since they will all automatically be updated as well, or you can locate your information directly from one of your other business devices.
Portable scanners themselves are extremely useful for the traveling businessman. Portable scanners enable you to take any piece of a document and scan it into an electronic database so that you will not need to hang on to the piece of paper for all of eternity. Also, in case you lose that tiny piece of paper, you will have an exact copy of it saved on your portable scanners and whatever other devices that you have synced with your portable scanners. You can have your smart phone, your stationary desktop computer, your entire office’s laptops and other mobile devices all synced together with your scanner to keep everyone updated with real-time information.
Running a business can be very overwhelming and difficult at times. You will want to keep everything as up to date as possible so that you will not miss any information. By using something like ActiveSync with your mobile and stationary devices, you can make the most of your travels and scanned documents.
An excellent tool specifically used on portable scanners is the memory added to the device. The moment you scan something into the device, if will save a copy of the document to its own hard drive. Then, if you did want to use software to sync all of your work and documents together, this copy will be saved to every other device that you have on your network, thus simplifying business.
