Scanning to the Cloud Opens Up Possibility

Scanning documents

Put your scanner to work today and see the difference digitizing your office can make.

Digitization doesn’t have to be scary. In fact, it can be partial, or even minimal. If you still rely heavily on paper and don’t foresee a fully paperless office in your future, that’s okay. You can still take advantage of scan to cloud applications.

Using built-in options such as Xerox ConnectKey is one simplified way to harness the possibility. Scanning to the cloud, to email, or to a file is easy, and you can do as much or as little as you’d like.

Let’s look at an example. Say your organization requires paper documents for archival purposes, or for sharing with clients or other stakeholders. There are still other documents that can be converted to digital and stored in the cloud. These might be proprietary business documents or future plans, HR records, or even old files that don’t need to be kept in paper form. Reducing your paper load and storage will still give you the benefits of scanning without compromising on the requirements or habits of your business.

One area that this works beautifully is scan to email. When you need to share something with someone off site, previously the only option was fax or snail mail. But now you can quickly scan it directly to email and send it to the recipient with a touch of a button.

OCR software ensures that your documents are correctly converted without reducing the quality or readability. Additionally, you can scan to numerous formats, such as PDFs or Excel spreadsheets, so you’re not limited to just one or two formats. This ensures that anything you want to scan can be scanned, hassle-free.

There are so many possibilities with scan to cloud applications, and any business can take advantage of this. To learn more, contact EDGE Business Systems today!
