This means that you enter the images of the hard copied of your documents and, as a result, get a piece of text. This text contains all the information that is present in the hard copy.

You face no problem when it comes to collaborating with your peers and discussing different professional decisions. So, you can say that Canto streamlines your digital workflow.

The AI aspect of this tool is another thing to know about. This platform’s AI has taken document digitization to another level. It doesn’t only digitize but also analyzes your image.
