Microsoft Office Lens: A Handheld Super-Tool to Change the Way You Work

Trying to keep track of important notes from meetings and organize all those post-it notes on your desk can be tedious and annoying. Fear not. Microsoft has a solution that quickly captures and centralizes important information for easy reference, edit, and access. The best part? It fits on the smartphone in your pocket.

How Microsoft Office Lens Will Help You Bring Your Business Visions to Life

Imagine this. You go to a brainstorming meeting with colleagues or clients and as ideas are firing off, they get scribbled down on whiteboards or notepads. When the meeting is finished, you want to capture everything on the whiteboard before it’s wiped away or upload your handwritten notes to share with team members. Chances are you can relate to this tedious everyday business challenge.

This problem doesn’t just come up in business meetings either. Perhaps you’re on an important phone call and take down some critical information on a post-it note that you don’t want to forget or lose. Maybe you want to edit a paper document digitally in Microsoft Word. In all of these situations, business leaders are looking for a strategic tool that will allow them to not only capture important information, but centralize it for easy access, editing, reference, and sharing. Luckily, such a solution already exists!

Microsoft Office Lens: Build on Ideas and Capitalize on Opportunities

There’s nothing we love more than discovering a simple but powerful tech tool that will help countless business professionals address a common problem. Microsoft Office Lens allows you and your team members to take a photo of important notes or documents and then store, share, and edit those documents digitally. The application is so useful because it’s basically like carrying around a handheld, automatic scanner in your back pocket.

Think of all the different moments in a day this app might come in handy. Want to save a phone number you took down on a post-it note? Need to edit a paper document that you don’t have a digital version of? Want to preserve the brainstorming session from your meeting room whiteboard? Microsoft Office Lens works like magic to digitize any important notes and reminders in the blink of an eye.

There really are unlimited possibilities here. Never lose a business card or post-it note reminder again. Streamline access, sharing, and editing of important business documents. Quickly brainstorm and sketch out big plans and capture them for later use and development. Easily capture and store quickly scribbled ideas so you’re never left scratching your head trying to remember. The best part? The app is easily downloadable from the Apple, Android, and Microsoft app stores.
