2014 Innovation Award Nominee:

Epson WorkForce DS-510 Color Document Scanner


The Epson WorkForce DS-510 color document scanner is the ultimate digital imaging solution ideal for tax and accounting professionals, offering advanced features such as scan-to-cloud capabilities with an intuitive one-touch button, fast scan speeds and innovative, advanced color and image adjustment capabilities. Moreover the DS-510 provides considerable flexibility to businesses with valuable software packages including Epson Document Capture Pro and OCR software as well as TWAIN and ISIS drivers for compatibility with third-party software programs, to easily integrate into existing workplace infrastructures. 

Developed with features based on customers’ requests, the Epson WorkForce DS-510 is a robust sheetfed scanner designed to meet the needs of an active workplace that requires automated workflow, remote accessibility to access network files, and easy access to record management systems. Tax and accounting professionals can increase productivity and efficiency with features such as one-touch scan-to-cloud capabilities, to services including Google Docs™, MS OneNote®, and Evernote®1.  

The WorkForce DS-510 offers blazingly fast scan speeds: 26 ppm (pages per minute) and 52 ipm (images per minute) and features and automatic document feeder for fast two-sided, one-pass scanning as well as ultrasonic double-feed technology to avoid missing pages or jamming. The scanner is also compact yet built for power – at 6.1” tall, 11.7” wide and 6” deep, the scanner fits easily on virtually any surface.

The DS-510 offers versatile paper handling– from rigid ID cards and stacks of business cards to documents up to 36 inches long. It’s capable of scanning folded pages without using a carrier sheet – both sides can be scanned, stitched together and saved digitally, for increased flexibility.   One of the most notable features offered by the WorkForce DS-510 is its innovative advanced color and image adjustment capabilities. When saving documents in black-and-white, it is often useful to manipulate how the software captures or removes information in color from the original page, such as when a client highlights line items in a form. 

Color Enhance captures specific and continuously variable colors from the original document before converting to black-and-white; and Color Dropout removes any color from the scanned image. Users can save up to six different colors to capture or drop for each scan profile, which can be saved for repeat use, ultimately allowing for a wide range of options for simplifying the capture and maintenance of data. 

Additional features of the WorkForce DS-510 include: 

  • One-Touch Scanning – Front control panel with up to 30 user-definable scan jobs including scan-to-PDF and scan-to-cloud
  • Robust Duty Cycle – Up to 3,000 sheets per day -Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Software – Converts scanned documents to editable text 
  • Eco Features – Scanner is both RoHS compliant and recyclable 

The WorkForce DS-510 is a robust and reliable sheetfed scanner that will help increase productivity and efficiency in tax and accounting firms; its innovative features, high image quality and intuitive user-interface help businesses take document management to the next level.
