Scan to Gmail and Apple Mail With OfficeDrop's ScanDrop for Mac

Upgrade Lets Users Quickly Scan and Email Documents, Look Up Addresses, and Use Gmail for Document Storage

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Jun 16, 2011) - OfficeDrop's ScanDrop for Mac scanner software now lets users scan and send documents using their Gmail and Apple Mail accounts. It is easier than ever to share scanned documents via email without any additional steps required. ScanDrop Scanner Software for Mac automatically pulls up the user's Gmail address book or opens Mac desktop email programs with the scanned PDF already attached, making scanning and sharing simple, fast and efficient.

"This new upgrade gives people the option to automatically attach, add a message, and send a scanned document to anyone on their contact list without having to think twice about it," said OfficeDrop CEO Prasad Thammineni. "Some of our early-adopter customers are using Gmail as a document storage platform. ScanDrop will now let them self-scan documents into their own Gmail account and add Gmail labels to the email at the time of scanning for easier organization."

With over 7593.522222 megabytes [and counting] of free storage according to Google, Gmail is becoming a viable cloud storage alternative. OfficeDrop simplifies this process by linking the scanner directly to Gmail and giving users access to all of its organizational features. When a user emails a scan to their own Gmail account, they can now add Gmail labels and add an email message and subject line within the ScanDrop app. This allows for better and faster sorting and searching for documents within Gmail.

ScanDrop for Mac, released in the Mac App Store earlier this year, lets businesses de-clutter office paperwork by creating digital copies through its easy-to-use scanning software. Users can organize scanned files locally or within many popular cloud services, including Dropbox, Evernote and OfficeDrop's own digital filing cabinet, OfficeDrop Online. OfficeDrop makes it easy to get a document to the cloud, and then share and collaborate on documents with others.

ScanDrop works with the majority of Mac-compatible scanner models sold within the last year. Visit the OfficeDrop website for a full list of compatible scanners. The software can be installed and connected in minutes. Download ScanDrop for Mac at the Mac App Store. OfficeDrop expects to add this functionality to the popular ScanDrop for Windows scanning software later this year.
