Key Features

  • Fast and Reliable Access to Paper Documents
    Once a paper document is filed in PaperPort, it is instantly accessible and will never be lost under a desk or left at home. Digital documents are always there waiting for you and, unlike paper files, they can be used by several people at the same time.
  • Communicate Clearly
    E-mail documents as PDF files to clients, vendors or colleagues with a simple drag and drop. With PDF, you’ll be sure they can view and print your documents without additional software. Add electronic sticky notes to enhance collaboration.
  • Save Space and Money
    Reduce expenses involved with filing, copying, finding and storing paper documents.

    Convert scanned paper forms into electronic forms you can fill out on your computer. PaperPort prints your completed form neatly and automatically saves a copy for you.

    Use a single application to run all the scanners in your office – desktop scanners, multifunction printers, departmental scanners and even networked digital copiers. This means less training and easier support.
