The best scan software: how do you know?
This question is not that easy to answer, because its all about what you think is important. The different programs offer different options and settings. To get the best results – from scan2ocr – you sometimes even have to switch between programs.
But we have a solution for you: BIQE.
10 reasons to choose BIQE:
1. Scanning and editing
It all starts with a scan. Therefor, you want the documents you scanned to be imported in the same scanning program where you edit the documents. After all, it would be annoying when you have to use another program for editing, every time you used a document. With BIQE you never have to switch programm or screen and you don’t need any additional software.
2. Importing images
What if you already have a lot of scanned images that you want to edit? In that case you want a scan software that can import these images effortless. Sometimes previous scanned images have less quality though and you might want to re-scan these images. In that case you want a program that can replace the wrongly scanned image easily with a correct scanned image. BIQE has all these options available.
3. Splitting and cropping images
When you have scanned your images, you don’t want wrongly cut off images during the splitting process, since correcting these usually involves extra work. You do want a program though, that offers you the option to correct wrongly cropped images, so you don’t have to scan that image again. You also want to be able to set options and features the way it suits you best. For example, you want a tool where double scanned pages can be adjusted separately. After all, not all left and right pages have the same sizes. BIQE offers all these features – and more.
4. An easy User Interface
The layout of the screen and the buttons in the User Interface must be clear and easy to understand. You want an intuitive program, without having to re-think the functions of particular buttons or symbols, every time you use them. This also goes for the way your screen is divided. You want to be able to adjust the sizes of the windows, to make them larger or smaller, as you please, without being limited by fixed default settings! But also: how easy is it, to check the process afterwards? Can you make the thumbnails bigger or smaller? With BIQE this is all possible.
5. The capacity of the scanning program
I have bought some very expensive software packages in the past. As I then wanted to import like a 1000 big pictures, the program I had bought crashed in the middle of the importing process. It turned out I paid a lot of money for a program that could only do like 10 times 100 pages. Obviously a very time consuming procedure. Examples like this are the many reason why I believe BIQE truly is the best scan software available. Because… BIQE can handle a 1000 pictures anytime.
6. The possibilities of the scan software
There is nothing as annoying to find the tool you wanted to use is just not available in your scan software. For example: Some people work with JPEG2000. So, what to do when this file type is missing in your scan software? All your scanned pictures would be worthless. That can’t be true… right? Or what if when you want to export your files for Alto-xml? You could search to find another program, to solve these issues, but that might bring unwanted extra costs, or at least be a time-consuming process. Why bother with these issues when there is BIQE? 😉
7. The speed of the program
If you are scanning 300dpi or even 600dpi color-images, your images will have at least a size of 100 mb per picture. This will slow down the speed and process of most scan software for sure. At moments like this, it would be great to be able to speed up the entire process. You could spend money on a system with many cores or threads, but that might not be enough, because you would also need a program that has been developed to use that cores – else it won’t work. It is important for you to know that Windows 10 divides the threads in two groups, when your computer exceeds a restricted number. For example: If you have more then 64 treads in your system, Windows will divide it in 2 times 32. This means that you can’t use your 64 threads, but ‘only’ 32 threads! In that case it is better to buy a computer with less then 64 threads. I myself have a system with 56 threads and therefor my computer system processes 56 pictures at once.
8. The price of the best scansoftware
There are a lot of scan software programs available. Some are free, others cost a fortune, and some lay somewhere in between. When you buy a professional scan software, you might have to pay a price between 5000 and 10.000 euros. Not to mention the expensive contracts, that mostly come along with those programs. An alternative would be to pay a lot of money for periodical updates. The balance between price and quality is a big issue when it comes to buying scan software. Not just for you, but for us too! BIQE does what the 5000+ euro software promises you to do… but BIQE does it for a little price and without expensive contracts or updates.
9. Have a say about your scan software
Which scan software actually gives you the opportunity to bring in ideas to improve your scan software? Right, none. Although… wouldn’t it be great to be able to think along and help developers make the right decisions about the scan software you use? Yes, it would be and that is what BIQE offers you!
