CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/10 -- OfficeDrop, a leader in cloud storage and document scanning services , is excited to announce release of a new free desktop scanning software that connects most scanners directly with Google Docs. This free scanning software, called "ScanDrop,"  makes most any scanner a "Google scanner" or a "cloud scanner."
From a simple and comprehensive interface, ScanDrop users will be able to scan, verify, organize, re-order, and upload paper documents as PDFs and, from the same interface, upload these PDFs directly to their Google Docs accounts. The ScanDrop software also lets users pick a specific Google Docs folder into which the scanned document will be uploaded and can also name the PDF prior to upload. Scanners supported include the popular Fujitsu ScanSnap, as well as TWAIN standard scanners like the Epson Perfection, Xerox DocuMate, HP ScanJet, Canon LiDE, Visioneer OneTouch, and Fujitsu fi along with many others.
"We've created some powerful tools that we use internally to digitize and upload hundreds of thousands of pages of paper into our own cloud content management  system," said Prasad Thammineni, OfficeDrop CEO. "The ScanDrop scanning software is based on these features, and includes time-saving tools such as scan preview, document rotation, page deletion and PDF creation. With ScanDrop, users will finally have a fast, easy way to bring paper documents to Google Docs."
ScanDrop is available for download in both the Google Apps Marketplace  and also off of OfficeDrop's website at: http://www.officedrop.com/scandrop-scanning-software/scan-google-docs/ . This beta version of the desktop scanner software will run on Windows operating systems, such as Windows 7, XP or Vista (sorry, not on the Mac.)
