A New Way to Connect Physical Documents with Digital Work Environments

We introduced Box Capture at BoxWorks to change the way people collaborate by connecting their mobile device's camera with everyday work processes. Just snap a quick photo to instantly and securely circulate it with the right people - coworkers, contractors or customers without having to save the photo on your phone. Today, we're updating Box Capture with one of the most requested features we've heard from our customers – document scanning!

Document scanning provides an easy way to connect physical documents with digital work environments. Simply scan a document with your iPhone's camera and you'll be able to share and collaborate on the file just like you would with any other document in Box. In fact, the file will benefit from all of Box's features like granular access-permissions, commenting, tasks and deep integrations with the services you use most, like DocuSign and Salesforce.

Box Capture now scans documents directly to the cloud

Document scanning is easy to use with Box Capture and will save time, resources and local device storage.

Here's an overview of all the new features baked into this version of Box Capture:

  • Automatic: The app automatically detects, crops, aligns and filters the document.
  • Easy-to-edit: After the scan is complete, users can easily crop, grayscale, rotate and re-size the document.
  • Save to PDF: Capture can stitch multiple scans into one document and save it as a PDF.
  • Collaborative: Save the file to the right folder so that the right teams see it, leave comments and @mention other users to notify them that the item has been added.
  • Secure: Photos, videos, audio recordings and scanned documents captured with the app are saved to Box instead of the user's personal camera roll, so business information is always secure.

Matt Clark of Heidelberg Distributing Company explains why Box Capture is a game changer for his company

We've transformed the way businesses and individuals can manage their document scanning experience.  The previous process – which required people to photo copy, manually scan and email attached documents to all of the right people – was not only inefficient and time consuming, but also extremely insecure considering the sensitive nature of so many work documents. And even using third-party apps required multiple steps and services to scan a document before enabling secure collaboration and sharing from Box.

Whether you're a nurse who needs to scan health forms so that a physician can instantly review, or a retail store inspector auditing a new location, Box Capture streamlines and simplifies the way you work.
