Scanner Power Tools (SPT)

A new dimension of scanning processes

The Scanner Power Tools are the basic module of Drivve | Image and offer you the key components for fully integrated work processes in your company.

Border crop

Eliminate any unwanted borders before sharing and storing your scanned documents.


Use the de-skew function to straighten the image of an imperfectly scanned document.

Name your document

With the intelligent Filename Generation feature, you can get your company info perfectly organized for every future search and retrieval. Define your file-naming convention in advance, including using variables. Tap automated names when filing your scanned documents or manually type in values at the display (or use a combination of both). Use any input field that the user can fill out at the scanner or multifunctional device display as part of the file name (for example, «department-company-document-document number-date & time.pdf>>).

Image cleaning

Get your scans to come out cleaner and more readable than ever by removing blobs and punch-hole marks. Delete undesired lines from any scanned image, such as those that often appear on fax documents.

Create searchable PDF documents

Generate readable and searchable PDF documents, and generate PDF/A output format for the long-term archiving of your electronic documents. PDF encryption ensures that confidential information remains private.

Autorotation of documents

Not only use Drivve | Image to straighten imperfect scans but also to autorotate documents which have been scanned the wrong way.

User authentication

Enhance the security of the scan process with intelligent user authentication, integrated in your Microsoft® Active Directory, by logging in at the device.

Blank-page deletion

Speed up and streamline your scanning process (and save money) by eliminating empty pages. Default your scans to duplex mode (two-sided), even for single-sided documents, and blank sides will be deleted from the job.

Bates stamping

Annotate and paginate documents using predefined variables, generic text and image stamping, and enter or choose a Bates profile at the scanner or multifunctional device control panel. You can stamp any kind of text or image on your scanned document, such as a date, current-user information (requires log in), and even a signature image of the current user that resides in his/her home directory.

Search function for network folders

Search for folders by initial letter or letter combination (such as “in” for “invoices” or “Jan” for “January”). This facilitates scanning documents directly to a network folder, particularly if there are hundreds of folders available.

Browse to folder

Open your folder tree, including root folder and subdirectories, right at the scanner or multifunctional device display (admin can limit access to secure directory lists).


Use your organization’s existing data as metadata to index incoming documents or to intelligently generate file and folder names. This makes not only quick retrieval but true organization a reality. Mastery of this metadata information defines the difference between entirely unstructured and perfectly structured data, the difference between losing or using your most precious asset.

Print documents

If your scanning device has print capability, use the Browse to Print feature to browse your entire network from the display panel and immediately print out documents in most popular formats. And use the Printback feature to process your scanned documents with whatever SPT functions are needed and print them out simultaneously

Separate documents

Separate your documents with a blank page or with a 1- or 2- dimensional bar code and you’ll get separate files at the computer.

OCR Module (for SPT)

Transform scanned documents into editable and searchable data

The Drivve | Image OCR (Optical Character Recognition) makes it possible to read and search your scanned documents and to use the contained information. That way, you can convert your scans into searchable PDFs, transform paper documents into editable data or filter a contract or customer number from a scanned contract.

Create searchable PDF documents

Generate readable and searchable PDF documents, and generate PDF/A output format for the long-term archiving of your electronic documents. PDF encryption ensures that confidential information remains private.

. X L S . DO C

Create editable documents in Microsoft® Word or Microsoft® Excel

Need to generate documents that can be edited later with your preferred Microsoft® Office application? Store and send your scanned documents in such editable formats as Microsoft® Word, Microsoft® Excel, RTF or Text.

Autorotate documents

Not only use Drivve | Image to straighten imperfect scans, but also to autorotate documents which have been scanned the wrong way.

Definine zones and read text only within these zones

Use Drivve | Image Zonal OCR to process information within defined sections of your scanned document. Enhanced string manipulation even allows you to analyze functions on any type of data generated from OCR zones. Search for an invoice number within an OCR zone or search and replace certain characters in a zone. Zone OCR is a great way to automate the data entry associated with imaging tasks: it instantly processes gathered metadata to your third-party app or database.

Database Connector (for SPT)

Direct access to your database

With the Drivve | Image Database Connector you can specifically access relevant, in your information infrastructure available, information and use it for your scan process. Directly on the device you can choose the required information from the available data of your data source – that way you speed up input processes and avoid mistakes.

Connect to existing data sources

Drivve | Image provides an integrated information management solution, with powerful tools for connecting to your existing resources. The Database Connector seamlessly connects your scanner or multifunctional device with databases/filing structures, fax-group profiles for broadcasts, email lists, etc., which gives you full control of input to efficiently index and distribute your documents.


Full-text search

The intuitive Full-Text Search feature makes it easy to locate a name, an address, or any other value within your data source.

Barcode Module (for SPT)

One code – many options

Barcodes automate various work processes and serve as clearly assignable DNA of a document. Also, especially 2-dimensional barcodes can contain comprehensive information about the document. The Drivve | Image Barcode Module analyses barcode values and uses the contained data for process optimization.

Bar code reading

Index and autoroute your scanned documents by using the content stored in highly efficient bar codes. Drivve | Image analyzes bar code values and extracts specific data. You can split bar code data based on separator characters, extract parts of a bar code, use several bar codes on one page and much more.

Type and position detection

The Barcode Module reads more than 20 industry-standard 1D and 2D bar codes and detects a bar code anywhere in an image. You can also specify a bar code location.

Recognition confidence level

Sometimes a bar code isn’t easy to read: it’s blurry or smudged. The Barcode Module lets you configure a minimum confidence level, reports the confidence level of every bar code, and sends you a notification if a bar code is below the minimum.

Bar code orientations

The Barcode Module reads almost all bar code orientations: horizontal, vertical, and skewed 45º. And it lets you indicate a default orientation.

Separate documents with bar codes

The Barcode Module reads almost all bar code orientations: horizontal, vertical, and skewed 45º. And it lets you indicate a default orientation.
