PaperPort is a desktop document management system. Its main use is for organizing scanned documents. Users can use the scanner profile to rename the files for easier organization on the computer. One of the features of PaperPort is optical character recognition. With this feature, PDF files become searchable so that they are easier to index. Another feature of the application is ‘stack’ and ‘unstack’. This allows documents to be separated into pages and re-assembled into PDF files. Editing tools are available if changes need to be made on the files before they are stacked back together again.

PaperPort comes with free programs to support mobile devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and Android. Users can view, edit, and search the documents they use with PaperPort. Users can manage all their files and organize them according to color. The program allows users to choose from 29 different colors for folders. The folder directories also help in searching for the right documents. Folder notes can also be added to important documents.

Another feature of PaperPort is form filling. Users do not need to fill out documents all the time. The FormTyper feature recognizes fields. Similar fields will be automatically filled out by the program. Aside from that, there are also transparent stamps that can be used whenever scanned signatures are needed for the documents.
