Recommendations for office scanning software?

Specs: Windows XP, 256 MB
I work in a law office, and there's a LOT of scanning. Currently using PaperPort Professional 11, but constantly having problems with it, so wondering if anyone has any recommendations for other scanning software.

I found one at ecopy.com - eCopy Desktop, but I'm unable to find any reviews about it.

Thanks.

I've used PixEdit and found it very easy and comprehensive.
Not sure what your requirements are but you can look here:

Should give you an idea of what it can do.

Thank you, Mike. I will research PixEdit. Do you do a lot of scanning? In my office, everything is scanned.

At the time I was using it, once a month or so I would scan a couple of thousand pages.
Usually a few hundred pages per day.
Forget the scanner type we used, but it had a sheet feeder so it made life a bit easier.

It was mostly hand written pages with a few typed pages now and again,
Unfortunately not all the pages were normal 11 by 7
But Pixedit allowed you to change paper size for a fairly wide assortment of sizes.
We normally scanned in grayscale.

Each scanned page was individually numbered and the file name (we saved as TIF) had to be the same as the page number, plus there was a path name that had to be prepended to the filename.
With Pixedit I was able to set it up so the file name and the path all came together.

Sounds like you haven't had any problems with it, Mike. The program we're currently using, Paperport Professional 11, crashes quite a bit, which is very frustrating.

Thanks, again.

You can download a demo version from the Techsoft home page.

I found another one that has a 45-day free trial, too. Can't remember the name of it, but I've got it at work. I'll check with my employer first, and see what he wants to do. Thanks.

I am consulting for a law firm and am using PixEdit with the SearchablePDF plug-in. We are scanning, editing and saving out to a Searable PDF. No problems with the sftwr so we did not need support. The people we called before we bought said support was great. It is not expensive at all.
