Digitize and share your paperwork at home

PaperPort is an application for organizing and sharing your documents, and helping you to digitize your paperwork.

PaperPort has a very visual approach to organizing documents, which sit in the main window with large easily identifiable thumbnails. Like a real desktop, you can stack documents that belong together in this virtual space. There is a Microsoft Office-style ribbon interface which is almost entirely devoted to different ways of organizing and viewing your documents.

One of our favorite features of PaperPort is that it allows you to flick through documents without opening them. When selected, a little triangle fold appears on the thumbnail preview, and clicking it will leaf through the document. For digitizing, along with your scanner, PaperPort will convert them into readable and fully searchable PDF documents, so you can start to rid your office of paper clutter.

The scanning and organizational parts of PaperPort are great, and while there are other programs that do the same, few are as easy to use. To begin with PaperPort can be a little intimidating because it has lots of features and buttons. However, using the Office-style ribbon interface means many users will at least be used to the style.

If you want a way to digitize paper media, PaperPort is a complete solution for organizing, scanning and indexing documents.
