Dell Document Hub

Many small businesses have come to rely on cloud storage and collaboration services such as Dropbox and Box.net to house important documents. And while getting electronic documents into those services from a PC or smartphone is pretty easy, uploading paper documents is a multi-step affair involving a scanner and the associated PC.

The Dell Document Hub service streamlines that process by letting workers scan documents directly from a supported Dell multifunction printer to the desired cloud service, with no PC intervention required. You and your employees will also be able to search for files stored in the associated cloud services and print them at the MFP using just the control panel on the MFP (again, no PC required).

What’s more, the service offers OCR (optical character recognition) processing that takes place in the cloud, so you can scan paper documents and create editable files in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint formats. Dell Document Hub is currently supported on the Dell C2665dnf Multifunction Color Laser Printer ($600), and it supports scanning to and printing from Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, SharePoint Online and SkyDrive.

It's time to pick a gift for your favorite small business owner (even if it's you). You could go the office superstore gift card route (boring!), but this holiday season why not give the entrepreneur in your life a gift that lasts longer than a lunchtime errand?

Small Business Computing.com has collected a list of some favorite technology gift ideas in the hardware, software and services areas that are perfect for small business owners — gifts that will make their lives easier and their organizations more productive.
