SCAN TO COMPUTER

People scan documents or images or for virus into their computers for a variety of purposes. One of the most common explanations is that you need to get papers to someone around the country right away, and using the mail or other delivery methods isn’t quick enough. Even if a person is going paperless, they will want to keep important documents on hand. They may even have scanned images that they want to digitize.
