Bulk OCR Software Features

The following features are available in all editions of FileConvert:

Discover Easy OCR Software

Who said that powerful software has to be complex? FileConvert is the easiest bulk OCR software around, especially considering its feature set. A clean user interface and wizards designed for the lay person make FileConvert simple to set up and even easier to use. No hand-editing XML configuration files or studying 2-inch thick manuals. Just easy, wizard-driven OCR.

Convert to Other Formats Too

FileConvert doesn't just do PDF. If all you need is OCR text, use FileConvert to create plain-text files from your PDF or TIFF files, leaving the originals intact. Maybe you want to leave your files in TIFF format, but take advantage of FileConvert's automatic document separation and routing. Or maybe you want to go backwards from PDF to TIFF. FileConvert lets you choose the output format that works best for you.

Convert Your Existing Files

Document image formats like TIFF have been around for two decades. You may have a hard drive full of them. While a TIFF file is a true copy of the original, it's not searchable. One reason that PDF has become so popular is that it's a true, uneditable copy of the original that can also hold real text. FileConvert will take all of your existing TIFF files (and even image-only PDF files) and safely convert them into searchable PDF files.

Monitor a Network Scanner or Fax

Is your network scanner gathering dust? Do you only use one function of your multi-function machine? Put it to use with FileConvert. FileConvert will watch for new scans from your network scanner and turn them into searchable PDF files. It will also send them anywhere on the network that you want them to go.

Convert a Single Folder or an Entire Drive

FileConvert excels at looking for new files to convert. It can inspect a single folder, a whole branch of folders, or an entire drive. And it will do it as often as you want. FileConvert will look for new scans and ignore everything else. It can convert files in-place or deposit them out on the network. It's entirely up to you.

Make Your Scans Desktop Search Friendly

Many scanners can produce PDF files. But these scans are not searchable. FileConvert makes existing PDFs and new scans searchable by exposing the actual text in the document. Search through your scanned documents as easily as you search the web. Use FileCenter's integrated FileFind or any other popular desktop search engine like Google Desktop Search, Windows Desktop Search, or Copernic.

Automate File Separation and Routing

FileConvert provides document separators for true bulk scanning. Place a separator on top of each document, then put a stack of documents on your sheet-fed scanner. FileConvert will automatically separate the documents into individual files for you.

Many products offer some sort of separator, but FileConvert goes to the next level by also including document routing information in the separators. A separator not only marks the beginning of a document, it can also tell FileConvert how to save the document – conversion type, network location, dynamic file name, etc. With separators, it is possible to scan, convert, and route even large volumes of documents with the touch of a button.

Schedule However You'd Like

FileConvert provides flexible scheduling options. Run a conversion job on demand, at a specific time each day, on specific days of the week, or even every minute. Different kinds of conversion jobs have different time requirements. FileConvert is designed to accommodate them all.

Not many things bog down a computer like text recognition (OCR). OCR slow-down may be the biggest reason people are reluctant to scan. FileConvert solves this by letting you schedule your jobs after-hours, like during the night or over a weekend. Get the benefits of searchable documents without having to stare at an hourglass.

Prioritize Your Jobs

Some conversion jobs may be more important than others. That's why FileConvert lets you assign a priority to your jobs. If a high-priority job runs, its files will go immediately to the front of the queue, potentially bypassing hundreds of other files and hours of wait time.

Automate Your Document Scanning

Our OCR software makes for convenient and automatic document scanning. FileConvert will help you move large volumes of paper documents onto the computer. Intelligent separator and watch folder technology can completely automate bulk document scanning, OCR, OCR, and routing. Leave your documents on the network scanner and walk away. Automated document scanning will do the rest.
