What is batch scanning software?
Batch scanning software can help you scan documents in large volumes instead of processing them one by one. This is a very useful tool in many offices, where dozens of paper documents may need to be scanned and processed quickly. As businesses transfer for hard copies of documents to digital files, batch scanning software can ease this transition.
Modifying files after scanning
After a batch of files has been scanned, it is not yet ready to work with. Most scanners output files in a very inconvenient and bulky format, usually TIFF, which cannot be compressed very well, and which wastes a great deal of disk space. In addition, it is impossible to work with the text within the scanned document. As a result, many people find it helpful to convert scanned files into PDF format and then compress them, making them more manageable. Afterwards, OCR software can be used the make the files text-searchable.
