OfficeDrop Android, iOS Cloud Apps Help SMBs Improve Workflow

By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — July 06, 2012

OfficeDrop announces major updates to its iOS and Android cloud scanning and storage apps, beginning with its first Android tablet app.

OfficeDrop's newest mobile apps turn any iOS or Android tablet or phone into a scanner, giving users the ability to scan multiple pages as one document simply by snapping a few photos. With just a few taps, users can instantly turn these photos into searchable PDFs, upload them to the cloud, and share them with others. A simple, streamlined user interface and faster search and sharing functions make the mobile workflow quicker and easier than ever before.

For example, a small business could use OfficeDrop's mobile apps to manage its paper on the go. When an employee is on a business trip, she can snap photos of a multi-page contract with her phone, upload the entire PDF as a single document to the cloud and collaborate on it with her coworkers in minutes.

"Small businesses still use paper for up to 70 percent of day-to-day business tasks," said CEO Prasad Thammineni. "This update will make it possible for these users to quickly upload paper to the cloud with just a few taps. Our small business customers appreciate the speed and efficiency that OfficeDrop helps them achieve, and now even Android tablet users will be able to realize the benefits of the paperless office."

Small businesses are increasingly turning to tablets to speed up their workflows while on the go. OfficeDrop is bringing its scan-to-cloud apps to Android tablets, after seeing significant growth since its iPad app release in September 2011. The new Android tablet and improved iPad apps will allow small business tablet users to quickly scan documents to the cloud and easily search or browse files within OfficeDrop's cloud filing cabinet.

Additionally, OfficeDrop's iOS and Android updates make its apps much faster for users. The new and improved multi-page scanning capability makes getting paper documents to the cloud three times faster than before. Simplified public sharing and the ability to share entire folders the same way users share documents makes for speedier collaboration. Users can also copy public file links to their mobile clipboards, making it easy to distribute files through email, text or mobile browsers. OfficeDrop has also improved the user experience with stylistic and performance upgrades that make using the service easier than ever.

OfficeDrop is a complete cloud solution for small businesses, from digitizing documents for the cloud to storage accounts that are sharable with teams. To learn how OfficeDrop makes digital life simple with its scan-and-capture apps and services, visit
