What is it?
With Light Touch Scanning you can scan a physical document on one of our devices and have a PDF of it sent to your personal (H:) Drive. It digitises you r documents into high resolution digital images.
The function is free to use and has a number of benefits:-
Better organisation overall - document scanning gives you much better organisation. With digitised documents, files are simple and easy to access and are much less likely to be lost or deleted.
Saves space - it allows you to free up storage space. You can easily turn a filing cabinet worth of information into digital files.
Ability to edit text – you have the option to edit text in the document as it, something you cannot do when you use the scan to email function.
Faster searches – you can quickly search for documents using a keyword or phrase without having to trawl through extensive files.
Improved security – a great way to store any confidential or sensitive files.
Improved document distribution - scanning makes it easy to share documents electronically with colleagues and clients over a network, by email or via the Web in a controlled manner.
