Fairfield, NJ – Keypoint Intelligence, the leading market research firm and independent evaluator of print and smart workplace technology and services, announces that the Epson DS-C480W Scanner has won a Buyers Lab (BLI) 2024 Pick Award.


“Keypoint Intelligence is well aware of the excellent DS scanner lineup from Epson, having tested a range of the devices along with many others, and we are always impressed by the exceptional quality and standard of Epson scanners,” said Mark Davis, Analyst in Keypoint Intelligence’s Workplace Group. “The Epson DS-C480W Scanner is no exception. It is a compact desktop solution with seamless integration that guarantees excellent image quality and intuitive bundled software.”


The Epson DS-C480W Scanner is an excellent choice for offices needing a compact network device for daily scanning needs. The device accommodates a range of paper types through its ADF, as well as the ability to scan in batches to increase efficiency. A large 2.4" color LCD touchscreen provides an intuitive user experience and customizable jobs means workflows are adaptable to user needs. Epson’s ScanWay PC-free feature also enables users to save scanned images directly to a USB flash drive, email, or a range of popular Cloud services, and bundled software such as Epson Document Capture Pro adds greater versatility to the device.  


“Epson engineers set out to design products that are comparable in performance, reliability, and features to traditional desktop document scanners, but take up much less desk space,” said Haol Yao, Product Manager at Epson America, Inc. “This recognition from Keypoint Intelligence gives us confidence that we’ve hit the mark with this exciting new lineup.”
