Globodox uses Scan Profile to simplify the process of scanning documents. Scan Profile is a collection of frequently used settings which can be saved and reused to scan a document. Instead of specifying these settings every time you scan and save a document, you can specify these settings once and save them as a Scan Profile. Documents can be of several types (e.g. Color photographs, Black & White text etc.). The settings required to scan and save a black and white text document are very different from the settings required to scan and save a color photograph. Therefore, different Scan Profiles are required to correctly scan and save different types of documents.

For example:
Let's say on a daily basis you scan all the Invoices you receive, as Black & White PDF and all the Agreements as Color Tiff. You can create two Scan Profiles - one for scanning your Invoices and another for scanning the Agreements. Now, all you need to do is select the appropriate Scan Profile and click the Start Scan button to begin the scan process.

You can create as many Scan Profiles as you want.
