Why and when to use document imaging?

Document imaging brings the two worlds of online and paper together in a way that can help make you more productive. With WeScanFiles.com Document Imaging, you can not only scan a document (eliminating the need for the paper copy), but you can also work with a scanned document or a fax as easily as other documents on your computer.

Use Document Imaging when you want to:

  • Scan both single- and multi-page documents. For example, you can scan paper documents for archiving and recycle the paper copies.
  • Read a scanned document or fax quickly and easily on your computer screen. For example, you can read through a multi-page fax online.
  • Fill out a simple form online that has been scanned or faxed. For example, scan a paper form or open a faxed form, fill in the requested information including check boxes, and return the form in email.
  • Perform optical character recognition (OCR) in a scanned document or a fax. For example, after recognizing text in a scanned document or a fax, you can search for specific text, or copy text to another program.
  • Copy text and images from a scanned document or a fax and paste in any Office program. Or, export text and images from a scanned document or a fax to Microsoft Word. For example, copy important data from a fax or scanned document to a Microsoft Excel worksheet.
  • Search for text within a scanned document or a fax.
  • Reorganize the page order in a multi-page-scanned document or fax as easily as rearranging papers in a folder. For example, remove the cover page from a fax, or add additional pages before sending it on to another person.
  • Send scanned documents to others in e-mail or as a fax over the Internet.
  • Annotate a scanned document or fax and share it with another person. For example, add comments to a fax and return it to the sender.
