Can Paperport scan to a searchable PDF?

I have a Xerox 6115MFP printer/scanner. I want to be able to scan all incoming post (letters, invoices, etc.)  and later be able to find what I want by using a desktop search tool such as X1.
So if I wanted to find all invoices from Joe Bloggs, I could search for
content= invoice joe bloggs
file type= .pdf
and the search would return all pdf's with those 3 words in the body text.

I've got Paperport 10 SE that came as part of the Scan to Desktop suite with the Xerox. It works okay but does not seem to make pdf's that are searchable in the above way. I think there is a higher spec version of this suite (made by Nuance and distributed by Xerox) but is difficult to get hold of and of course I could simply purchase an up to date version of just Paperport, either the light version that I've got or the professional version. I'm concerned that the Pro version of the Xerox suite will be overkill for my requirements with the 6115MFP which is only a cheap device.

Can someone recommend the simplest solution that covers my requirements?
