Paperless-NGX is a free document management software with text recognition (OCR). It provides an elegant solution for digitizing paper documents and consolidating their digital counterparts in PDF or image formats. There are apps available, making it a truly helpful tool for managing paperwork. I now scan everything that comes in directly and simply place it in a box. In theory, I could even burn the paper (but I don't have a fireplace). I also directly import PDF files, keeping everything in one place. Therefore, Paperless-NGX is an integral part of my SmartHome script.
