Exactly. The "scanners" in an office environment are usually large copy/fax/scanner machines put on the network and housed in the central offices. These are not flatbed, desktop scanners. You "scan" the document just like you'd send a fax or make a copy, but then you have the machine email a .pdf of the document to yourself to forward on to whoever else needs a copy of the document. I do this pretty much on a weekly basis, and I'm a freaking school teacher, not even an office clerk.
