ORPALIS is pleased to introduce the brand new Labs section of its website. Labs are a creative space dedicated to freeware and experimental projects designed by the ORPALIS team. ORPALIS Virtual Barcode Reader is the first Labs freeware to be released.

Muret, France, July 04, 2013.


ORPALIS Labs marks the start of a new chapter in the story of the French Document Imaging company: the team members now have their own space to develop new ideas as well as personal projects. The philosophy behind Labs is to share innovative products with the public, that’s why the first application developed – ORPALIS Virtual Barcode Reader – is a freeware utility.

Currently the Labs section also contains the preview of PaperLight, an innovative document management application (for image and PDF files), developed as an extension of Windows Operating System.
The ORPALIS Labs are located on the ORPALIS website.
A section is dedicated to the different Labs projects on the ORPALIS public forum.
