Organizations with an electronic document management system in place operate at a vastly superior level of efficiency compared to those that still rely on paper files and folders. If you’re still managing documents in paper format, it’s time to stop using bulky file cabinets and impossible-to-search image scans and start capturing the real content of your documents with M-Files.
With M-Files, you can turn paper documents into searchable electronic files by scanning your paper records and creating full-text searchable PDF files. Converting paper files to electronic format by scanning provides a more compact means of storage, universal access for retrieval, and higher levels of data security and privacy.
M-Files works with any scanner type, is compatible with the most popular file formats (including TIFF, JPEG, BMP, PNG and GIF), and enables you to scan directly to your M-Files vault. M-Files integrates seamlessly with a variety of capture, scanning and OCR solutions from vendors such as Kofax, PSIGEN and Nuance eCopy to give you maximum flexibility to implement the capture solution of your choice.
M-Files also offers advanced OCR (optical character recognition) extensions that make it easy and efficient to transform paper documents into fully searchable PDF files. When your content is searchable, you’re not limited to searching on just the file name — you can find information by searching on any text in the document.
Watch the new M-Files video to learn more about how desktop scanning and OCR capabilities are powerful and efficient components of the M-Files document management system.
