PaperScan Professional Edition version 4

The new version of the PaperScan Professional edition benefits from new enterprise features to ease document management processes.

SharePoint support

PaperScan can use conventional username and password to authenticate to the SharePoint On-Premises server or use Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) to provide single sign-on access.

The software can also use username and password or Modern Authentication (OAuth2) to authenticate to SharePoint Online (Office365) servers.

Barcode reading

PaperScan v4 now supports 1D (18 linear symbologies) and 2D (QR code, DataMatrix, PDF417, Aztec code) barcode reading features.
Barcodes can be read to provide a part of the name for the output file or to split the set of documents (TIF, JPEG, PDF, and many other formats) into groups of files according to their value.

Dramatically enhanced OCR engine

Version 4 uses the recently updated GdPicture.NET OCR engine and offers the capability to simultaneously OCR images in multiple languages. English, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish are the default languages. Users can add additional languages from a total selection of 130 languages.
