Since SharePoint is mostly used for creating shared collections of documents and active collaboration, a possibility to scan documents directly into SharePoint can save corporate users a great deal of time when converting archives to the digital form. Unfortunately, SharePoint does not have this functionality «out of the box» and it can only be added via third-party extensions, such as, for instance, SharePoint Scanner Plug-in 2010 Professional.
SharePoint Scanner Plug-in 2010 Professional is an advanced scanning tool with OCR functionality that can import documents from your scanner or compose documents from images on your hard drive and save them to your SharePoint document library. The software is extremely easy to install and use, so you and your colleagues can start adding documents to your corporate portal right away and without having to spend a few hours studying the manual. The OCR functionality of the product allows you to quickly create copies of printed documents and save them as searchable PDF files for extra convenience. Other supported formats include TIFF, JPEG, PNG, BMP and GIF. Not only can the software scan and compose documents, but also compress them to ensure minimal file size and optimal quality. The client end of this plug-in, Websio eDocStation, can be used both for saving documents to SharePoint and for saving them to any location on your PC.
SharePoint Scanner Plug-in 2010 Professional is a uniquely powerful scanning extension for SharePoint that dramatically reduces the time needed for transferring large document archives to your corporate portal.
