BOTTOM LINEThe Epson WorkForce ES-300WR is a fast, accurate, and feature-rich portable scanner with powerful software that can save your business hours of time each month.

The highly portable Epson WorkForce ES-300WR Wireless Document Scanner — Accounting Edition ($399.99) is an enhanced version of the Editors’ Choice WorkForce ES-300W we reviewed last year. This latest iteration of Epson’s flagship portable document scanner lists for only $100 more, but its business-centric software, as well an overhauled and renamed document-capture interface, make it more accurate and bookkeeping-friendly, thereby increasing its overall value. If collecting financial data on the road and exporting it for use in your accounting application—eliminating the need to enter it manually—sounds attractive, you should consider the ES-300WR.
