The SmartThru Office utility offered by Samsung is a helpful utility to help digitize your files. Dealing with physical files and documentation can be a huge drag on any office. It denies you the ability to make use of the ability of quick and automatic categorization, search, delivery, replication and collaboration abilities afforded by computers. The Samsung SmarThru Office can help you deal with the issue. It is a great tool to scan and digitize all your physical office records.
The user interface of SmarThru is relatively straightforward. You need to press the Scan button, which opens up the Scan Options dialog. Then select your scanner or multifunction printer from the drop-down list. Then select the paper source from the drop-down list. Then you can click the Advanced button. This will open another dialogue. Here you can set the details such as dpi and bit depth for colour. Then set the file format and then select the output directory in Scan To option. You can select OCR language if the document is in other supported languages. Then type a file name for the output file. Then press Scan button and the image will be scanned and stored at the desired location. The software also has the ability to save custom templates so that you can save your most commonly used settings and save time. You can scan the file to DOC, XLS, PDF, PPT, TXT, HTML or JPG files. The software has OCR functionality which converts the text in the image to scannable and computer readable text in the output file. It also has the ability to search for a keyword among the filenames as well as inside the files’ contents since it can read the text and convert it to machine-readable form.
The SmarThru Office utility was included with certain Samsung printers and scanners. Now Samsung’s printers division has been sold to HP, and you can download the tool from HP Support website. Though this tool is still functional, it has mostly fallen out of common use and is superseded by many other utilities in common use. Though it is to be noted that the OCR functionality offered by SmarThru is not common and is available only in some expensive software suites.
