I’ve been browsing this forum the past few days and wanted to pick the brains of all you smart people here. I’m searching for an online alternative to DevonThink. Fees are a non-issue. I’m looking for an alternative to DevonThink because being hosted locally and only on MAC it can’t be imported to our work environment which is made entirely of Windows machines and since we’re often on the road.

Requirements are that a software:

-Be accessible across multiple platforms
-Be capable of OCR conversion
-Categorize and group images based on their contents

You’ve sold me if the software does:

-Automatic grouping based on OCR generated files

-Can generate visible relationship maps

My organization is looking to streamline vendor outreach and our staff are on the road a lot. Having a software to convert static images into OCR files to organize *hundreds* of business-cards would help to help in ways that perhaps need not be mentioned. I’ve come to the conclusion that my best bet is to subscribe to DropBox Business. I am hoping someone can challenge my stated solution with better alternatives?

There are several roundups of cloud-based document management solutions that you might want to consult.


and more…

I’m interested as well, as I’m not really comfortable with Evernote as a DevonThink replacement. But price *is* an object, and I don’t think I can afford the cloud services that could compete with DevonThink. I upgraded from DevonThink Office to DevonThink 3, and I’m not smitten with new version.

What are some more options you would recommend personally? I simply ask because most of these utilities within the list don’t host OCR capabilities? I will look into EFileCabinet for its full capabilities later before comparing it to DropBox. Thanks!

I still use Nimbus Note Pro and STILL don’t understand why more don’t.
A great all-platform approach with OCR (only in PRO).
iOS, Android, MAC, PC, Web
