Create searchable documents on-the-fly with the click of a button.

Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Rumanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Norwegian.

Auto rotation

The auto-rotation feature allows ExactScan Pro to determine the orientation of each scanned sheet automatically, therefore avoiding the need to manually pre-sort a stack before the scan. Because the auto-rotation works independantly of the OCR, the feature also helps to improve OCR results.

All automatic

Everything in the Pro version is automatic. Color and source detection avoids the need to manually switch between ADF, Flatbed, color, or black & white scans, as the optimal storage format for each page is automatically chosen.

Content de-skew

The content de-skew allows to correct page skew based on the page's content. Further improving visual appearance, storage size as well as OCR results.

Barcode Recognition

The barcode engine embeds the barcode parameters into the PDF document - through this the barcode parameters can be found e.g. with Spotlight and it even recognizes difficult images with colored background, overlapping and distortion.

Imprinter

The Imprinter allows ExactScan Pro to print flexible text into the scan. For example the scanned date, or watermarks such as "APPROVED", "VOID", "PRELIMINARY", "CONFIDENTIAL" or anything else.

Batch Processing
