Couple most likely to succeed
in taking you paperless:
ScanSnap s1100 + Evernote

It’s not always the biggest or the fastest that wins you over. Sometimes you just want the one that’s easiest to get along with. Or the one that makes you smile.

That’s why, when it comes to the couple most likely to succeed in taking you paperless, the winner is…
ScanSnap s1100 + Evernote.

It may not be the most sophisticated solution, but going paperless with ScanSnap s1100 + Evernote is easy, easy. easy. So easy, in fact, you could delegate your scanning to a munchkin. Here’s how it works:

- INSERT paper into front of scanner and watch scanner grab it firmly
- PUSH cool blue illuminated button to SCAN
- WATCH paper move through scanner
- PUSH cool blue illuminated button to STOP scanning
- CLICK Evernote PDF icon on ScanSnap pop-up Quick Menu
- WATCH as text recognition (OCR) is performed on scanned page
- MARVEL as Evernote opens and displays a searchable PDF of your scanned page

That’s it. One insert. One click. Two pushes.

Now toss your no-longer-need-to-keep-this paper in the trash and dance around your desk to celebrate how smart you are. You have discovered to secret to going paperless. Paper no longer controls you.

You can find anything you want. Anytime you want. Anywhere you want. Evernote stores all your information until you need it again. When you do, you can view it from your computer, your smartphone, or any other computer connected to the Web.

You don’t have to name your scans. You don’t have to put them in folders. You don’t even have to remember keywords. Evernote has a very powerful search box. Simply type in any word you remember from your scanned page and Evernote’s photographic memory will display the pages that contain that word.

Told you it was easy.
