PageManager 6: digitise your paper trail

In any small office, it’s a never-ending task to manage the waves of paper documents that wash in each day as regularly and irresistibly as the tide. NewSoft’s $US80 Presto PageManager 6 helps you keep your head above water, and has tools to digitise papers you want to keep. The software can’t quite equal its more popular competitor, ScanSoft’s PaperPort Deluxe 9.

PageManager works with your scanner’s existing driver software; in my tests, it performed well with an Epson scanner and an HP multifunction printer. After scanning your data, you can save it as is or you can use the app’s tools to transform it. The image editing feature and OCR worked reasonably well, but the software’s PDF generator proved useless, producing unacceptably blurry text time after time ( see here for a screenshot).

PageManager offers a customisable Application Bar for launching programs. Unfortunately, although you can edit which applications show up on it, you can’t add folder shortcuts. In addition, the program always saves documents to a single default folder.

Beyond this annoying trait, and its poor PDF generator, PageManager rates as a less-costly alternative to the better PaperPort Deluxe 9. Either program will help you deal with daily paper pile-ups.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
