Our review of Paperport

Purchasing Paperport was simple. Through the coupon, we got a discount from Scan Soft (now Nuance).

Paperport came up easily, and the install went smoothly on my Windows 7 machine. Once I opened Paperport, it had already found both my scanner and printer and started the synching process.

Getting everything into the new version of Paperport was quite simple.

I know that some reviews I’ve read about Paperport say that it’s not a solid piece of software. I don’t know if those are old reviews, but I can only assume that the other negative reviews from others were due to not understanding basic computer stuff. If you can use Skype or open Microsoft programs, Paperport should work very well for you.

In my experience for this review, Paperport 12 worked quickly, creating professional scans, and worked without any additional help from me.

Potential negatives for Paperport (though we had to look to find these… Paperport is pretty solid as a program for electronic filing or document sharing):

1 – A scanner, or a very good camera, is necessary for using Paperport. It seems like this should be obvious, but apparently from some reviews I’ve read, people want to use scanning software without having scanned anything. (Who are these people?)
2 – Using Paperport to scan and backup documents, bills, statements, etc. (especially if you plan to throw those documents away once they have been scanned), you will want good mirroring software, AND a duplicate backup somewhere off-site, in case of theft or fire.

Things we really like about Paperport include:
– Paperport has a great auto-cropping and trim features. These help to take care of that extra space around the pictures/scans
– Will work with the old files from old versions of Paperport (.max).
– You can scan directly to a PDF
– Set your own thumbnails on many file types
– There are some great features in the software. One oy my favourites lets you scan in any form and turn it into an electronic form that someone can type in.

Reviewing the overall look of the newest version of Paperport, we’ve been pleased.

Also, from older reviews, we’ve understood that Paperport used to take a long time to load information. However, Paperport’s recent advances show the program to be much quicker.

Final review:
If you’re looking for good software for scanning and backing up documents, we think you’ll be pleased with Nuance/Scan Soft Paperport.

If you’re going to get Paperport anyway, you might as well save money:

It is possible to get a trial download of Paperport.

Paperport was originally a scan soft program, but today is part of the Nuance suite of products.

Of course, you can still access information about Paperport by looking for it under the Scan soft name. Through the trial it’s easy to see why Paperport has continued to be a favorite among users.

It is a strong program which gives you a platform-free way to securely manage documents on your local computer and make them easy to share. With our trial, when we downloaded the most recent version of PaperPort Professional, we found it to be a great tool for managing lots of different types of information. It worked to provide easy access to files on the local PC, and also functioned extremely well with both document archiving and sharing across a network.

The Paperport application worked well with existing programs we had running, and worked well on the computers we use. Additionally, PaperPort had a strong and simple integration into Microsoft Windows.

We found it easy to download the program and install it.  And during our trial of Paperport we saw that it was a straightforward integration of scanning and creation of PDFs. Paperport also adds some nice document management functions to the existing options with the folders and files structures in Microsoft Windows.

We didn’t have to do anything additional as far as installation, adding more software, or adding other hardware, in order to make Paperport work well.

We’ll be back with our in-depth review of Paperport next week.  However, today we wanted to let you know about the trial download of ScanSoft Paperport.

Paper Shredders Will NOT Protect Your Identity


Warning: Use of undefined constant user_level - assumed 'user_level' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/secretidentity/public_html/wp-content/plugins/ultimate-google-analytics/ultimate_ga.php on line 524

I just read (skimmed) this article from the head of a company called MyBinding. While he offers some useful advice in his article, he implies that purchasing a paper shredder will protect you from Identity Theft.
Is it time to beat this dead horse again?
Okay.
Here’s the deal.
Identity Theft is so easily committed because all of our information is so easily accessible, and also so easy to falsify. (The real issue is that our social security numbers are so valuable, and until we get that changed, Identity Theft will continue to be a problem.)
It’s not that shredding your stuff isn’t a good idea, but to suggest that having a paper shredder will somehow protect you is not only misleading, it’s just wrong.
(Aside: I’m not talking about corporations here. Corporations which have any personal information on customers or employees, and don’t have some sort of shredding plan in place, are just asking for trouble. It’s a lot of information collected in one place, which identity thieves thrive on. Why steal one identity and use it once when you can steal 10,000 identities and resell them over and over again? So companies, whether you’re small, medium, or large, you must put together a plan that encompasses not only shredding, but information security as well.)
On a personal level, however, the only studies I’ve ever seen that suggest that (personal, at-home) shredding reduces Identity Theft, were ultimately financed by people who own or are tied to companies that sell personal paper shredders.
Conflict of interest much?
So, shred if you want. It’s a good idea.
But realistically, it’s not going to reduce your chances of becoming a victim of Identity Theft very much, if at all.
Anyone who tells you otherwise is probably trying to sell you a paper shredder.
