One popular study estimates a single sheet of paper is copied 19 times while it's in use. The same study estimates that this translates to a saving of $20 per document when comparing paper and electronic filing methods! So, if your organization's documents are digital, you'll eliminate the need to physically store, manage or transport them. You'll dramatically reduce your costs associated with copying, printing and faxing too!
OmniPage unlocks the potential of the data in your documents. Once you've scanned a document or opened an image file -- from any scanner -- you can do limitless things with it; save it to the format of your choice; archive it to your network for universal access; extract the information automatically and repurpose it.

OmniPage 17 is the world's most accurate document conversion application; it has 99%+ character accuracy so it can turn paper and PDF files into electronic files you can edit, search and share in the format of your choice. You can turn documents that would take hours to re-type into perfectly formatted documents in seconds.
- Accuracy - Accuracy is the single most important feature of an OCR program because greater accuracy translates directly into time savings. PC Magazine's independent lab tests have confirmed OmniPage to be the most accurate, and the only OCR product to successfully process all of their test documents. The newest version makes it easier than ever for you to re-use content from existing documents. A 27% increase in overall document accuracy translates directly into fewer word errors and less editing - resulting in greater processing efficiency and additional time-savings. With an accuracy level up to 50% greater than most alternatives, you'll spend dramatically less time converting documents.
- Formatting - What good is OCR if you need to spend additional time reformatting the results? This can be a very time consuming process especially if there are columns, tables or graphics involved. Because formatting is so crucial to automatically reconstructing the layout of a document we built superior page layout algorithms to ensure converted documents are as exact to the original as possible. OmniPage Professional 17's precise layout retention maintains the look and text flow of the original page. Whether you've got a single page from a book or a 1,000 page report, OmniPage can handle them with both speed and accuracy.

Better still, OmniPage can be used to convert a document from one format to another (TIF to PDF for example,) and to make static image documents searchable on your PC and within content management applications.
- Document output - The ability to turn paper or PDF documents into your favorite program format is what makes OmniPage Professional 17 so versatile. Whether you want to edit a document, create a searchable archive, share information on the Web, or integrate information into other applications, OmniPage allows you to make the conversion quickly and accurately.
