Scan App (Office 365)
One-click Scan & OCR!
Easily scan papers into a single or multiple documents, configure property-values & upload the scanned docs – all in a single click!
Without leaving your SharePoint interface, you can easily scan documents into a library, or attach them to a list item by using integrated scanning menus. With the multi-lingual OCR feature, you can easily save your scanned files as searchable PDF files – all designed for non-technical business users!
Integrated in the most natural way to make it simple and easy for SharePoint end-users to scan files into libraries and list attachments.
As this is a SharePoint-hosted app, none of the customer’s data/documents is transmitted to other cloud servers!
Paper scanning is done on the user’s desktop, using a client-component, which is part of KWizCom’s Scan app.
Need to scan multiple pages and have them saved as separate files?
No problem! Easily configure the way you want to separate the scanned pages into files.
Create searchable PDF documents using the multi-lingual OCR feature (Pro. edition).
Many organizations which already decided on moving to paperless information management still find themselves having to manage large amounts of papers on a daily basis. Scanning documents and uploading them to SharePoint is a time consuming process (scan to local folder, upload each scanned document and tag it), thus making it very difficult to store information originated from papers, into SharePoint Online.
KWizCom’s Scan app solves the SharePoint scanning challenge by adding the missing “Scan” menus for libraries and lists, and by enabling batch scanning and tagging of documents – all in a single click!
