While warm sunshine and the vacation air gladden our mood and spirit, summer still remains the perfect time to increase productivity. If you regularly deal with documents in your work, have ever heard about OCR and PDF technology, and are not afraid to delegate your daily tasks to the software, don’t hesitate to read this article, which will tell you 3 ways in which our ABBYY FineReader OCR PDF product can help you to increase your productivity dramatically.
1. Digitize Your Documents
Even though our world has become increasingly digital, paper documents are still indispensable for any office environment. But what benefit do you gain from the pile of paper that keeps growing on your desk? The higher it gets, the more difficult it is to find what you need and the more time you have to waste to do so. The solution is easy and obvious: with ABBYY FineReader you can simply scan your documents and immediately convert them into searchable PDFs.
The result: you declutter your desk, find documents or information contained in them with a simple search on your computer and are ready to get organized.
2. Stop Retyping Text
Information is everywhere; you never know when something interesting is going to surprise you. While commuting, in the magazine you are reading, in an old scan. Most of us would snap a picture with a smartphone or start retyping, especially when you want to re-use the information. Isn’t this a waste of time? Sure – but with ABBYY FineReader you can leave this in the past. No matter if you took a picture of some text with your smartphone or scan a paper document, ABBYY FineReader can convert it to text you can copy and paste someplace else in literally seconds.
The result: you collect information on the go, invest your time in the actual work you have to do instead of retyping, and are able to re-use any information you need in seconds.
3. Organize Your Documents
Digitizing your documents is a good start, but it’s not always enough. Many of your documents will need to be available for a longer period of time. Your scanner will produce a TIFF, a JPG, or even a PDF, but none of them will be searchable, just a “photograph” of your original document. Therefore, if you do not have an impeccable naming system you will probably never find your document again, or will need just as long to do so as when you had that pile of paper on your desk. With ABBYY FineReader you can turn these scans immediately into a searchable PDF file, add metadata, improve their visual quality and reduce the file size.
The result: your documents are ready to enter your digital archive – easily searchable and retrievable, and you save valuable storage space.
