One of those tools to keep around

2020-06-28

Works seamlessly on any PC, great app integrations, PDF management is a breeze.

Pros

One of those rare tools that always gets installed on my laptop -- favorite feature is probably the ease with which we can stack and unstack PDFs, delete pages, etc.

Cons

better OCR is probably the only real issue, or perhaps command-line / API bulk mode for same the ability to alternatively make command-line call to extract and stack pages would also be great.

Paperport does not live up to expectations

2018-09-07

As a tax accountant, I manage alot of documents and I wanted a software program to help me scan, file, and save documents.

Pros

PaperPort is designed to help you manage files, primarily documents.

Cons

PaperPort would get hung up after clicking on a third sub-directory.

I use this all the time! It is the best doc scanning/handling/sorting software!

2018-02-08

It replaces two or three other programs that I used to use for this functionality.

Pros

The "send to" function is a great feature when working with many documents.

Cons

The ribbon looks very dated although it is very functional. The scan function is complicated because it offers some options.

Amazing and wonderful product

2018-05-07

Pros

At my job we would create report and we needed to suppress the pdfs into one document and paperport was the perfect software to use for that.

Cons

Everything is automatically saved so it wasn't a big issue but if you were rushing it was a bit irritating.

Been using this for scanning for the last few years, very few issues

2018-04-02

Multifunction scanning software with lots of options included

Pros

I like its wide range of options and functionality. You can choose where to scan files, set up different scan profiles, choose output options, etc.

Cons

As a result, I sometimes get multipage documents that will only scan and save one page at a time, which is problematic.

Good way to manage pdf and other documents

Pros

Great desktop program to create pdf files and organize documents into one cohesive spot.

A good tool for managing paper documents.

2018-02-08

This program allows you to scan documents to your computer, separate or combine them, then export to your desktop.

Pros

What I like most about Paperport is that when you scan documents to your computer, it allows you to stack them together, or separate them into separate files if you so choose.

Cons

For instance when I am scanning a multi-page file there is a status bar that shows something like "Scanning Page 3 of 18" and as each new page scans the status bar updates and takes you to the paperport program.

Une fois bien paramétrée, la fonction pour scanner les document permet de créer rapidement des documents PDF de plusieurs pages.

Pros

Très pratique pour scanner rapidement des documents et pour gérer les fichiers PDF.

Les fonctionnalités de conversions des PDF vers d'autres formats posent souvent des problèmes et n'aboutissent que rarement à un résultat correct.

Helps me to be better organized!

Pros

It is very easy to use, helps to keep our business organized, easy to use interface, ability to split desktop.

I wish that it had a longer history for undo options and an easy way to look back at your hiostory (what you scanned, when, where it was moved, etc.)

Paper Port is so helpful!

2019-08-27

I need to create boiler plates and the ease of converting .pdf files to word docs and back, also to unstack and stack .pdf's makes my life much easier.

Pros

I I also like how I can save the documents in both forms right in the Desktop tab under Scan settings and go back if I need to to make changes.

Cons

I don't think there is anything I don't like about it. It is perfect for what I need it for, I never have a problem with it.
