If the amount of information you’ve collected in the office or at home has reached critical mass (like mine has), here is a quick overview for using your ScanSnap for Mac with DEVONthink Pro Office to get organized.

DEVONthink Pro Office is a free-form database that stores and indexes everything from scanned documents to emails and PDFs, anywhere from your Mac to the web.  You can scan your papers with ScanSnap for Mac, archive your email directly from any popular Mac email application and share your archive using the built-in interactive web interface with Macs, Windows PCs and iPhones.

When you open DEVONthink Pro Office for the first time with ScanSnap, it automatically recognizes your ScanSnap for Mac and gives you the option to scan directly to the database.

With every scan, DEVONthink Pro Office makes the digitized document searchable (through ABBYY FineReader OCR) and adds it to its inbox.  The built-in Artificial Intelligence (AI) helps you collect and organize your work by giving you suggestions for where to file each document in the archive.
