Hand held scanners
Capshare by Hewlett PackardThe undisputed first choice in hand held scanners for professional abstractors and courthouse researchers is the Hewlett Packard Capshare. Unfortunately, HP stopped producing this model in 2000. But you can still occasionally find them online. We found ours on eBay. If you find one  -  grab it quick. We paid $700 for our first and it paid for itself in less than two weeks.


Scanning / Image Management
For as little as $99, scanning and image management systems quickly pay for themselves  in saved paper and ink costs alone - plus- you won't spend hours searching for old paper files.

At $199 PaperPort Professional 11 by Nuance is probably the best choice to scan, organize and share documents for most growing abstract businesses.  But if your budget is tight or your just starting out,  you may want to consider the home office version for $99.
