GlobalScan NX efficiently converts scanned paper documents into electronic files in multiple file formats and routes them to network folders, email addresses, fax servers and directly into Microsoft SharePoint and other business systems.

With load- balancing and failover support, users across the entire company can reliably scan and route documents to predefined workflows using a simple interface.
