➤ Convert Captured Print jobs to searchable PDF files, and send PDF files to cloud database
The HookPrinter SDK provides a function to convert captured print jobs to searchable PDF files. This feature can be very useful for businesses that need to save and manage large amounts of printed documents. The searchable PDF files are created by running the captured print job through a conversion process that utilizes optical character recognition (OCR) technology. This allows the resulting PDF file to be searchable and editable, making it easier to find and work with specific information within the document.
In addition to the conversion to searchable PDF files, the HookPrinter SDK can also send these files directly to a cloud database. This can be a useful feature for companies that need to store and share documents across multiple locations or with remote teams. The cloud database provides a secure and easily accessible repository for these files, which can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. Overall, these features of the HookPrinter SDK can help businesses streamline their document management processes and improve efficiency.
