Let's consider an instance - you are working remotely from an unknown location where you do have access to the internet. You are prepared with the your 'remote work setup kit' consisting of:

  • Laptop

  • Headphones

  • Mouse

  • Work-related documents

Your team lead calls you and asks you to share a copy of the agreement that you had taken home for signing. You do have the signed copy of this agreement, but do not have a scanner or a printer at the location. What would you do? Probably one of the two things below:

  • Click a photo and share it, to which the response from your manager would possibly be -'Not Acceptable!' 😢

  • Request your manager that you would share the signed copy when you return back

This is a typical situation when scanner apps come to your rescue 🤘

Every document scanner app comes with a specific set of features which mainly revolve around the following:

  1. Compatibility: Either with Android, MacOS or iOS

  2. OCR and language support: OCR refers to Optical Character Recognition and helps the application recognize text from a scanned image. Apps such as Prizmo can recognize text in as many as 23 languages.

  3. Storage: As the document might be confidential or sensitive, apps such as Scannable do offer secure cloud storage options.

  4. Cost: With apps such as CamScanner, which has a 'Scanned with Camscanner' watermark below every scanned document, the premium version removes this watermark.

Check below our handpicked list of best document scanner apps for remote work.
