How does it benefit assistants?

This app is really handy for assistants for a number of tasks; including expenses, minute taking, emailing documents and anything else that needs to be scanned and converted to PDF. The app saves time and it is handy being able to scan documents at your desk.

I really like the convenience of the Camscanner app. It is definitely worth having an app that you can use to quickly scan documents and convert them to a PDF, particularly if you do not have access to a scanner or you are working from home.
