[prMac.com] Anaheim, California - The Apple iPhone development platform makes it possible to extend the use of the iPhone by downloading applications to the device. Most applications developed to date have been focused on entertainment, games or personal use, but the iPhone also has tremendous potential for becoming a part of traditional business processes and applications.
Doc2email is one of the first iPhone applications that is designed to integrate the iPhone into paper intensive business systems such as submitting copies of receipts for expense reporting or adding hand written notes to insurance claims or medical records. Doc2email allows the iPhone to operate much like a fax machine with no wires attached! Workers who travel frequently or work remotely will be able to submit images of documents at any time rather than only when a fax machine or network attachment is available.
Doc2email is a document capture application that increases the efficiency and speed of operations by using the iPhone to take a photograph of a paper document, convert it into the appropriate format and email it to:
* Store in an archive
* Share with a colleague
* Send to a company who wants a document with a wet signature
* Start a workflow or business process
* Use in any other, typically fax or scanner, document imaging application
The electronic document is sent as an email attachment that is easy to extract and can be in any of the following formats:
* Black and white, which is like a fax
* Grayscale, which is like a black and white photograph
Doc2email can also be used as part of a distributed document imaging solution to add the extra dimension of mobile capture to conventional scanning software. It can thereby truncate paper by moving document capture to the place where paper first enters an organization.
Pricing and Availability
Doc2email is now available on Apple iTunes for immediate purchase worldwide.
