Scan to PDF for Web

Use the Scan to PDF tool to digitalize your paper documents

Head to the Scan PDF tool to scan documents on iPhone and Android and convert them into PDF format. This new tool for Web makes your physical documents directly available on your computer by scanning with a mobile device. 

This can be useful for creating digital copies of important documents, such as contracts, invoices, and forms. 

Need to sign and send a physical document online? The tool can also be used to help sign your documents. 

First, use Scan to PDF to convert your paper documents to PDF. Next, upload them to the eSign tool to add legally binding digital signatures to your document.
