Exceptional Quality Images

Consistently high-quality images for faster, lower-cost operations

Industry-leading OCR accuracy rates
iDTC – a unique method of distinguishing and augmenting black & white characters from the background of documents, enabling industry-leading OCR accuracy rates.

Powerful automatic image clean up
Advanced Cleanup Technology maximises image quality by removing noise, stains, watermarks, and red stamps.

Automatic image correction
Combined auto-rotation, auto de-skew/auto crop & blank page detection deliver the ideal image.

Hole punch removal and edge repair
Hole-punches are filled in – in both colour and black and white – and rough document edges are corrected with small tears removed.


Simple Operation

Easy to implement, easy to operate for immediate productivity

Step-by-step profile creation
Intuitive admin menus and interfaces save time creating scanning profiles.

Assisted Scan
Visual, results based profile configuration means organisations don’t have to learn and manipulate advanced driver settings for on-the-fly scanning requirements. Assisted Scan is also useful for quick new profile creation.

Automatic Profile Selection
Configure to automatically select correct scan profile for pre-defined form types.

Automatic Front Side Detection
When scanning ID cards, PaperStream’s Automatic Front Side Detection ensures these types of documents are scanned accurately without the need for additional configuration.

Seamless integration
PaperStream IP can be paired effortlessly with other PaperStream software such as PaperStream Capture. An SDK is also available for custom integrations.
