Smarter indexing and other enhancements in Scan to Next®

Enhanced feature for those who use Scan to Next® to scan and capture documents for their Next® archive.

Until now, classifying (selecting document type), and indexing (adding metadata), has been two separate tasks in Scan to Next®.

With this update, you are able to do both actions in one task, and thereby save time and effort.

Before - two steps

Step #1: Classify Step #2: Index and archive

Now - one step

When you select a new document type (classify), you can now immediately provide the index values (index and archive) in one and the same task.

For the techies

Scan to Next®has been totally rewritten and is now based on the technology from Next® Mailroom. This means that future enhancements in our flagship product Next® Mailroom will also benefit users of Scan to Next®. It also makes it much easier for customers to upgrade from Scan to Next® to Next® Mailroom - light edition, or full edition.

Additional information

Please refer to the online product guide for additional information on this feature, once it is released.

Commercial terms and conditions

This new feature is available, at no additional cost, to users with an active service plan and a license for Scan to Next®. Any consultancy assistance will be invoiced.

Even if Scan to Next® is now based on the Next® Mailroom technology, you need an upgraded license to utilize the many advanced features in Next® Mailroom.


Despite our best efforts, we may be forced to change both content and expected delivery of future product updates without notice.
