ExactScan Pro offers high-speed document scanning for Mac.
ExactScan Pro is a popular, easy-to-use OS X scanning software that utilizes built-in drivers for over 200 document scanners, including devices from Avision, Kodak, Oki, Visioneer, and Xerox.
ExactScan's built-in scanner drivers cover the whole range, from Visioneer's portable RoadWarrior to dependable workgroup scanners from Xerox, Visioneer, Kodak, and Avision. ExactScan allows for easy scanning of business cards, bills, and receipts, and ExactScan Pro's built-in OCR can directly save them as searchable PDFs.
With built-in OCR, ExactScan Pro recognizes the text in images and transform scans to editable and searchable documents, faster and more accurate than before. Together with the OS X Spotlight indexing system ExactScan Pro allows you to quickly find and retrieve archived documents.
ExactScan Pro's barcode recognition brings even more professional AutoID features to the Mac. During the scan process it can automatically recognize common barcodes and embed their content into the document, or use it for the filing destination.
All versions of ExactScan include advanced image-processing algorithms. For example, the intelligent black-and-white thresholding and blank-page detection can help to decrease storage space required for the archive, while the auto-crop and de-skew can recognize the page and skew for a perfect image representation of the original page.
ExactScan Pro includes various other facilities to help organize the office workflow: it can scan directly to any attached printer, and comes with smart profile presets, such as: Scan 2 PDF, Scan 2 Print (Copy), Scan 2 Email - the user can start right away.
Thanks to the TWAIN compatibility, ExactScan supports even more scanners, thereby enabling more users to take advantage of the advanced ExactScan features on top of the basic vendor drivers.
The support of AppleScript allows professionals to create dedicated solutions for specific, even difficult workflows, and to scan directly into a database.
ExactScan comes with support for many languages (English, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Chinese (simplified) and Chinese (traditional).) and is compatible with OS X 10.8.
