A digital file cabinet for your PC. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. It's a software package that's been around for more than a decade...designed to help consumers and businesses organize digital documents of all kinds. PaperPort...now in version 12 and owned by Nuance Communications...works especially well with scanners and in fact has been bundled with some models over the years. At Nuance, Director of Imaging Product Management Jeff Segarra says...for instance...
"I do my income taxes digitally and throughout the year I receive various statements from my town or from my company. And I used to keep all that stuff in a file cabinet and often things would get lost. Now at the end of the year when it's ready for me to do my taxes, everything is in one neat place, all scanned as PDF files so I can quickly get to the information I need."
Same is true for medical records for families and even photos. You can find the basic version of PaperPort online for under fifty dollars. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
