Scan to SharePoint with Kofax Desktop

Kofax announced the launch of a new scanning application Kofax Desktop, a tool that I have been waiting for a long time. This is a simple tool that integrates in to Microsoft Office desktop applications providing users with one touch scanning capability from office applications. As I mentioned in a previous post, it also supports direct scanning in to SharePoint. Kofax desktop supports scanners using Twain drivers and can scan in either TIFF or PDF formats.
Anyone can download the fully functional trial version and work for 14 days (or 50 saves). And the best part is this costs only $ 29. Winking.  As Kofax says I am sure this will make scanning as easy as printing.
Below are the main features;

Scan directly from Office applications

office add-on

office add-on2


  Scan directly to SharePoint



   Scan as an attachment in one step



   Scan to SharePoint and send the link on email



   View scanned images as thumbnails for easy drag & drop



  1. It is interesting all the different markets Kofax is trying to tap:
