Kaagaz Scanner wants to become India’s document scanner app of choice
A group of Indian entrepreneurs have come together to offer an alternative to Camscanner, the popular document scanning platform which was among the Chinese apps banned by the Indian government.
Kaagaz Scanner has now been acknowledged by the Government of India as part of the Atma Nirbhar App Challenge and has also been recognised by the Ministry of Education.
Currently, the app has over 70,000 daily unique users with more than 10 million pages scanned in about 1.5 months. The app, now available in Hindi and English, will soon support many other Indian languages. The app also comes with an app lock feature to secure documents. It allows users to scan as many pages as needed with direct sharing to email, WhatsApp and more.
In the days to come, Kaagaz Scanner will support AI-based cloud storage where the documents will be auto organised into buckets like Personal ID, Insurance, Invoices, Employment, Medical and various different categories.
Gaurav Shrishrimal (IIT Kanpur alumni) said “the ban on Camscanner helped the app grow at fast speed”
