A new cloud-based service from Nuance enables users to easily organize, access and share documents from nearly any PC and mobile device. Known as PaperPort Anywhere, the new offering allows users to manage and access their documents in the cloud using web browsers.
In addition, it enables using free apps from Nuance for Apple and Google Android mobile devices. What makes the solution work effectively is the Nuance OmniPage OCR (optical character recognition) engine that has been designed to automatically create searchable documents from scanned and camera-captured documents, as well as faxes.
Thanks to this technology, users can easily organize, access and share all of their document content on PaperPort Anywhere. Nuance is offering PaperPort Anywhere with up to one gigabyte of searchable storage free of cost to its users. Users have to pay $9.99 per month for PaperPort Anywhere Premium with up to 10 gigabytes of storage and $24.99 a month for 50 gigabytes of storage.
“There is a reason that recent surveys show over 51% of people still use paper files — it is in large part because current cloud services treat paper content as an afterthought,” said Robert Weideman, vice president and general manager for the Nuance Document Imaging Division.
“PaperPort Anywhere goes further than other services by closing the content gap between paper and digital documents — making it easy to scan to the cloud, improving the way users manage both their scanned and digital documents, and by making cloud access easy and convenient.”
PaperPort Anywhere includes several features and benefits such as allowing users to organize all their documents in the cloud and ability to search and find both paper and digital documents. The solution can be accessed and used, anywhere and anytime. It simplifies sharing and collaborating and enables one click scan to cloud.
