DEVONthink in Men’s Vogue

Mens VogueMen’s Vogue has published a nice little article about the Fujitsu ScanSnap 500 for digitizing documents — and does not forget to mention DEVONthink Pro Office!

If you own a Mac, you can plunge even further into the digital abyss: ScanSnap syncs with DEVONthink, perhaps the most successful artificial intelligence software for home users. DEVONthink, by itself, can open, organize, assess, and store any document that passes through the scanner. Just create and name a database — Coffee, for example — and the program will take any scanned document, read it, and file it in a fully searchable form. You can find all the lattes you ever bought at Starbucks and arrange them by size or the date you bought them. It’s actually a little freaky.

    Great solution.
    I Think my Brother MFC-7820 N could also be a good solution if it would seamless work with Devonthink pro Office. I does not know know why it is so complicated. It is about Brother?

  2. It’s all about the software that the scanner uses. Most auto-feeder scanner use a proprietary scan software, and if it permits to send finished scans (e.g. PDFs) directly to DEVONthink Pro Office, that should work. Maybe we need to add your scanner software’s application signature to DEVONthink Pro Office so that we can run OCR automatically on files coming in from the scanner.
