OfficeDrop Announces Major Image Quality Update for Android

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 7, 2012) - Today, OfficeDrop is announcing a brand new version of its Android scanner app that makes scanning documents to the cloud much simpler. It's always been easy to snap a photo of a document and upload it to OfficeDrop's online cloud storage system, but now the Android app's scanning function is even more powerful.

The updated Android phone and tablet app includes a major image quality upgrade to make documents more searchable, plus automatic cropping to save time and keep documents nice and neat within OfficeDrop cloud storage accounts. In addition, users can save documents into their "Favorites" folder and they will be backed up to the cloud plus saved locally on all of their devices for offline access.

"It's critically important for OfficeDrop to have as high of an image quality on a mobile phone as you would on a scanner," said Prasad Thammineni, CEO, OfficeDrop. "Many of our small business customers are capturing paper on the go and do not have access to a scanner as often as they'd have a tablet or a phone handy. OfficeDrop's updated Android app lets them capture documents wherever they are and still get the same searchability as they would from a PDF they capture from a desktop scanner."

For example, if an OfficeDrop for Android user wanted to snap a picture of a contract on the go, the new version of the app would automatically detect the edges within the document, cropping it and making the uploading process much faster and easier for the user.

The automatic image quality enhancement would then make the image sharp and clear (not to mention much more searchable within the system). Once the document is uploaded into OfficeDrop's cloud, a user can search for it quickly using OfficeDrop's file search engine and cloud OCR technology, and the document is ready for file sharing as a PDF.

OfficeDrop is a complete cloud solution for small businesses, from digitizing documents for the cloud to storage accounts that are sharable with teams. OfficeDrop's smartphone scanner apps make digitization and sharing on the go fast and easy.
