To create technology that enables conversion of different documents types, such as paper files, Adobe PDFs, or even images, into searchable data. A scanner alone is not enough to make this data editable and searchable.

Typically, scanned documents can be saved in a variety of formats such as DOC, RTF, XLS, PDF, HTML, and TXT.
