Sharpdesk is an easy to use desktop-based, personal document management application that lets users browse, edit, search, compose, process, and forward both scanned and native electronic documents. It enables the creation and distribution of proposals, reports and more with the ease of drag and drop operation.

Simply drag and drop your files onto Sharpdesk's Work Area, and you'll be able to browse through them within a single window. Each file type can be displayed as a thumbnail to enable quick visual location and identification of a document. Over 200 types of files such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, TIFF, JPEG and BMP are supported.

Sharpdesk's powerful search function lets you quickly find the documents you need by full text search, utilizing metadata fields including image PDF and TIF files. The full text search utility yields results in thumbnail view with a summary for faster recognition of the correct file. With Sharpdesk Composer, you can combine different file types (image, PDF, MS Office files, etc.) into a single document through simple drag-and-drop operation. The Convert by OCR function on the Sharpdesk Output Zone provides the ability to convert image files and image PDFs into searchable PDFs and various MS Office file formats so the content can be edited.

An annotation function in Sharpdesk Imaging provides a range of useful editing tools, including text, labels and stamps, allowing network users to review and proofread documents without overwriting the original files and without having to print hard copies. Sharpdesk is included with the embedded Network Scanning in Sharp Digital IMAGERs™ and FO-DC series devices, allowing you to scan paper documents, forward them or even convert them into editable digital files.
