ScanCafe Integrates with Google Drive and Dropbox

Digital-scanning industry leader ScanCafe announced today it now offers the option of integrating and uploading scanned images directly to Google Drive and Dropbox, two of the most popular cloud storage providers.

Effective immediately, ScanCafe customers will have a one-click selection option for cloud integration and upload during the checkout process on all scanning orders. Customers who do not have a Google Drive or Dropbox accounts can sign up for a free account as part of the new feature.

Google and Dropbox provides ScanCafe’s customers with failsafe backup protection for both their scanned and digital photos, removing the risk of images being lost due to failure, damage, or loss of a personal storage device. In the past, scanning service customers have had to download scanned images to their computers and then manually upload the images to a cloud service themselves. However, ScanCafe’s direct upload option now allows consumers to have this done for them instantly and automatically, for as many photos as they wish.

ScanCafe currently serves customers throughout the United States and Canada. For more information on products and features, please visit http://www.scancafe.com, or follow at http://twitter.com/scancafe.
