'Paperless Office' Apps
Several companies, including Fujitsu, were at Macworld/iWorld showcasing new scanner solutions with companion software, designed to help consumers and business users alike live in a more paperless world. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100, for example, is an extremely small and portable scanner that allows papers, postcards, photos, greeting cards, and even plastic ID cards to be scanned and transferred into editable documents or graphic files in a handful of formats.
Designed to work with a variety of different scanners, Presto! PageManager 9 was showcased by NewSoft at MacWorld/iWorld. Designed for personal or business use, this software allows users to find and organize scanned images or documents, create multiple-page PDFs in one process, working toward achieving a paper-free work environment. The software now works seamlessly with Google Docs and Evernote.
Also from NewSoft, the latest version of Presto! BizCard Xpress allows users to utilize any scanner to scan business card data into their Mac, and then export the contact information into the Mac's Address Book software (or another contact-management application), without having to enter contact data manually.
