Organizational tools – Name your document prior to upload and pick cloud destination folders/notebooks and apply labels and tags. Your scanner’s software can’t do this!
Use the power of the cloud – If you cloud service has folder or notebooks then ScanDrop is the easiest way to get paper scanned into the right destination. Using Tags in Evernote, Labels in OfficeDrop’s cloud filing system or labels in your gmail account? ScanDrop looks them up so you can add them at the time of scanning.
Evernote, OfficeDrop users – and now Google Docs users also – can use the OCR (optical character recognition) that comes with your online storage account to make your files searchable.
Scan to Email – Scan and attach a PDF to your Gmail or local desktop email program. Look up email addresses in your Gmail’s contacts. Add subject lines and messages to your emails at the time of scan.

** Note that Evernote provides OCR for Evernote Premium users; free Evernote users may not get text searchable PDFs in their Evernote account **
**-- Important Limitations on Google Docs OCR: The OCR that Google supplies has certain limitations. It is different than Evernote Premium’s and OfficeDrop digital filing system’s OCR – Evernote and OfficeDrop’s filing system create text-searchable PDFs; Google limits the amount of data that it will accept during the OCR process and rejects documents that are more than 2 mb in size if you have opted for Google’s OCR – this is usually one or two pages. Google’s OCR happens at the time of upload and will increase the amount of time required to upload the document. If you have problems with Google’s OCR please contact Google’s customer service, not OfficeDrop’s as OfficeDrop has no control over the quality, consistency, latency or reliability of Google’s service. ScanDrop cannot use Google’s OCR when scanning to Gmail, only when scanning and uploading to Google Docs.**
