Image Scanning Software
What exactly is Image Scanning Software
The powerful image scanning features in a document management system like GLOBODOX make it an excellent Image Scanning Software. Image Scanning Software helps you use an image scanner to convert paper documents into digital files such as PDF and TIFF. The digital files that are produced as a result are easy to store as well as easy to find and share with others.
Why do you need an Image Scanning Software:
Desktop scanners more or less ship with basic scanning software, but more powerful scanning software helps to make the scanning process simple and less prone to errors. Also, since such software is better designed, steps are removed from the scanning process and the whole process becomes much faster.
Most desktop scanners come with unintuitive scanning software. Better image scanning software integrates cleanly with the scanner and streamlines the scanning process, removing unnecessary mouse-clicks and taking away the speed bumps. Scanning is well-known to be slow and labor-intensive. But good document scanning software can automate scanning and make it efficient.
Image Scanning Software ships with several advanced features such as support for duplex scanners and a virtual duplex mode for scanners, which do not have a built-in duplexing feature. It also supports batch scanning in which multiple multi-page documents can be scanned at once with documents being separated from one another by a blank page or a barcoded separator page.
Image scanning software also helps by letting you set up different scan profiles for different types of documents. So you could have one profile for scanning A4 sized documents in black & white and another profile for scanning photos in color. Scan profiles can also store information such as the resolution to use for scanning and whether the scan should be color or black & white.
Together with the aforementioned reasons, there are many more advantages you gain by using the image scanning software:
- Get the most of your scanner
- Spend less time on your scanning efforts
- Dedicate fewer people to the scanning process
- Produce better quality scanned documents
Scanning documents to reduce the use of paper in your business is a great plan. To get the most out of your efforts make sure you use great document management software like GLOBODOX with built-in image scanning software feature. You will not only be able to scan documents efficiently but you will also be able to manage and organize the scanned documents with ease.
