Licencing & Versions

  • Having downloaded and installed the software the system watermarks all PDFs with an unobtrusive banner. With the exception of the watermark, the free download version is exactly the same as the licenced version. You therefore ensure that the software meets your requirements before buying. After payment of the licence fee you simply email us your serial number (in Scan to PDF look at the Help menu / About ScanToPDF option) and we reply with your licence number. Entering the licence number removes the watermark from all future PDFs.

  • The home user version scans only a page at a time and is ideal for use with a flatbed scanner or multi-function device. It is not intended for use by the business user.
    Please note that multi-page PDFs can be created with this version.

  • Licences are issued on a 'per seat' basis. Licences can be transferred on payment of an administration fee. Corporate licence details are available on request. Please contact us for details.

  • We endeavour to respond with your licence number within the shortest time possible but please note that international time differences, weekends and UK public holidays may sometimes cause a delay. 

Customisation & Branding

  • We will be pleased to consider the modification or tailoring of Scan to PDF to meet your specific requirements. Please contact us with an outline of your requirement and we will respond with an indication of cost and timescale.

  • We also offer a branding service such that ScanToPDF can be seemlessly incorporated into third party products. The branding service includes changing the product name and logos to reflect your product's identity. Contact us for further information.

Application Integration

  • The simplest method of integration is for your application to launch Scan To PDF passing the PDF filename and path as a switch. For example, in C# this would be achieved with the following code:

    //contractId will have been assigned by your application
    string pdfPath=@"//docserver/pdfarchive/contracts/" + contractId + ".pdf";
    System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo psInfo =new
    System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo();
    psInfo.FileName=@"C:\Program Files\O Imaging Corporation\ScanToPDF\scantopdf.exe";
    psInfo.Arguments="/autoscan /pdfpath=" + pdfPath + "/terminateaftersave";
    System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(psInfo);

    And here's some example code for scanning a supplier invoice document to PDF from within an Access Database application:

    Dim pdfpath As Variant
    Dim pdfname As Variant
    Dim progpath As Variant
    Dim progswitches As Variant
    Dim x%

    pdfname = "SI123456" '//set by your application
    pdfpath = "//server/works order pdfs/" & pdfname & ".pdf"
    progpath = "C:\Program Files\O Imaging Corporation\ScanToPDF\scantopdf.exe"
    progswitches = " /autoscan /terminateaftersave /pdfpath=""" & pdfpath & """"
    x% = Shell(progpath & progswitches, vbNormalFocus)

  • Scan to PDF can be integrated with your application software via a number of methods. These methods include:
     
    • Active X dll
    • COM Objects
    • .NET Assemblies
    • SQL script database updates
    • XML file write/read

  • Integration enables Scan To PDF to automatically attach a PDF to a record in your database. For example a supplier's invoice to the bought ledger record, a CV to a candidates record, a POD to a despatch record, etc.
