For Sage users the preferred invoice scanning technology is the one offered by Sage Developer, PaperLess Europe. PaperLess document scanning manages all your paperwork from scanning and adding electronic documents to processing them in your existing accounting applications.
PaperLess uses the latest methodology Capture>Process>Archive to capture data at the start of the document workflow process so that all your paper documents can be digitised and handled more efficiently online.

Businesses can scan paper directly into PaperLess or drag and drop multiple file types from emails and your computer. The PaperLess edit TIF functions enable businesses to merge, split and re-organise documents electronically so working through a batch of paper documents is quick and easy.

When businesses add a document to PaperLess, the document also has a unique number, which means your colleagues can easily locate a document at a later stage by entering this document’s unique number. Businesses can use the Scanning menu to add one or more documents at a time and control the scanner from PaperLess. Any twain compatible standard scanner at 300 DPI will work with PaperLess.

Not only document scanning software, PaperLess is also a piece of document storage software. PaperLess stores all your documents, both accounting and business documents, in separate folders in the PaperLess workspace so companies can keep their data secure.
