Our conversation with Joe Kissell about his new Take Control of Your Paperless Office, 4th edition starts off with how much have changed since the last edition, the accessibility of OCR technology, and how it has become easier to use. Scanner manufacturers now offer built-in OCR software, eliminating the need for extra apps. We also highlight the improved affordability and accessibility of OCR software. Joe emphasizes the importance of exploring new hardware and software options to simplify workflows in the paperless office, and some of the newest features that you may want to consider. (Part 1)
