Scan Documents to PDF

As part of our document scanning service at Pearl Scan, we can scan documents to PDF format.


Why do I need to scan to PDF?

PDF is Adobe's flagship document publishing format. It has become the most widely used format for distributing documents within organisations as it is portable and can be easily electronically distributed.

In a world with many standardised formats, Adobe PDF is the most compatible and widely used. This makes it a tremendously powerful archiving tool. If you want to ensure your documents will be viewable by the largest amount of people at low cost, our PDF conversion service is highly recommended.

How do you scan documents to PDF?

Scanning documents to PDF is part of our main document scanning service. Simply tell us the file format that you wish to receive your digitised files in, and we can make this happen.

OCR searchable PDF

An additional feature that can be applied to conventional PDFs is adding text search functionality. This retains the look of the original page while enabling the document to be searched by its contents. This is done by using an OCR application that reads the text on each page.

Many organisations have millions of pages of invaluable information sitting on storage shelves with limited accessibility. When faced with the challenge of converting these pages to digital format, the two most important factors are ease of distribution and an ability to search for documents.

We also use PDF (Portable Document Format) which are designed for easy printing and sharing., the two most important factors are, ease of distribution and an ability to search for documents.
