Scan / Upload Paper Documents Directly Into Google Docs

Scan Your Documents and Upload Them Directly to Google Docs?

google_docs_logo1I couldn’t believe my ears the other day when IT blurted it out – “configure your multifunctional device to scan directly to an account on Google docs”. Up until now, I hadn’t been too excited about cloud computing, but Google docs is something I use almost every day to share and manage documents with clients and colleagues. Everyone these days seems to have a Google account, so this kind of solution will likely appeal to at least some of those users.

How does it work?

With a simple piece of middle ware, and by configuring the machine correctly, your multifunctional device can be set up to link directly to Google Docs. You simply select the appropriate path or designated folder on your device, and if the script is working correctly, it should appear in your Google doc account in no time (depending on the size of the document).

Why is this relevant?

For some customers this will be a very simple document management solution, where files can be uploaded and managed using a secure online account (Google Docs). For others it can be a cost effective innovation for their business into cloud computing. The ability to store documents (for free) and share them with whomever you like (by email address) could prove very convenient for some customers.
