New Scanner Combines Leading Technologies from Evernote and PFU, a Fujitsu Company, to Eliminate Paper Distraction and Get Organized with Evernote

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 26, 2013 – PFU, a Fujitsu company and makers of top-selling home scanning solutions, and Evernote, the company whose products are helping people work smarter and live better, today introduced the ScanSnap Evernote Edition, a scanning experience that’s been reimagined from start to finish. The result of a months-long engineering and design collaboration, the ScanSnap Evernote Edition marries the speed and precision of the ScanSnap line with Evernote’s rich organization and sync features for the most refined scanner-to-service integration on the market.

The ScanSnap Evernote Edition elegantly handles all manner of paper clutter from receipts and business cards to personal documents and photos. With the press of a button, the ScanSnap Evernote Edition takes just one minute to transform a pile of up to 25 double sided documents of any type into crisp, clear scans that are sent to Evernote. Those notes are then automatically organized by type in Evernote, making them searchable and accessible from just about any device.

“Evernote gives people a simple yet powerful way to organize their ideas and information digitally. We thought paper deserved an equally elegant solution. Through our collaboration with PFU and their leading ScanSnap technologies, the ScanSnap Evernote Edition finally delivers one,” said Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote.

The ScanSnap Evernote Edition ($495 MSRP) ships with a year of Evernote Premium (a $45 value) and will be available in the United States, Canada and Japan in late October 2013 via www.evernote.com/market.

"We truly share Evernote's idea of continuing to innovate like a start-up for 100-years," said Kiyoshi Hasegawa, president of PFU Limited (Japan). "Today, we used that philosophy to create our best scanning experience in every aspect for ScanSnap and Evernote users both."

The one-year of Evernote Premium included with the ScanSnap Evernote Edition lets consumers enjoy advanced features of Evernote including a larger monthly limit upload limit (up to 1GB), the ability to read notes offline, more security and encryption features for sensitive documents, additional sharing options and faster customer support.

The ScanSnap Evernote Edition comes in a custom gray color with elegant soft-touch finish that is exclusive to the model. Product shots and further technical details are available at www.evernote.com/market.
