MAXIMUM Lead Capture. At Trade shows we use "any" means available to capture leads and Cardscan gives us one more reliable way to do the job. Small shows don't have commercial lead capture services and Cardscan is a requirement for efficiency. I don't want my customers wasting time filling out forms when I can just scan their card as I use valuable "facetime" to pitch my products and answer questions. At large shows people are three deep at the booth and we have to be able to accomodate everyone quickly or we lose them....Cardscan gives us that extra lead capture ability. This system has paid for itself many times over in just three shows.
Very pleased with its performance. The product is very easy to set up and once you start using it, you wonder how you did without it. It makes making address lables and lists very easy and helps organize all the information. Unless you need to track detailed info for each contact, this can serve as a self-contained contact software as well. Scanning software is very accurate and needs very few corrections. It also produces address labels accurately. It is great for printing single labels. One small drawback - when you produce a page with address labels, you cannot edit it. This presents a problem when you have an address label sheet which is partially used. You can't drag and drop the addresses to match the positions available on your address label sheet. It would be a big advantage to also have a single address label printer with this product and I am thinking of buying one.
Great Card Scanning Solution. Cardscan is a great way to manage my contacts in my business. The world has gone electronic yet we still pass around these antiquated little pieces of paper. Until such time that we exchange electronic business cards on a regular basis, CardScan is the best way to manage them. I have used CardScan for many years, dating back to the parallel port models. Unfortunately, those models were slow and the software somewhat difficult to use efficiently on a regular basis. As such, I returned to manually typing in my business cards. However, now that I have been using the CardScan Executive for a year, that is the only way I manage my contacts. The updated software is easy to use and syncs nicely with Outlook. As I have my Outlook Contacts synced to my PDA via Verizon Wireless' Wireless Sync feature, whenever I add business cards via CardScan, my Outlook Contacts and Phone Contacts are all updated instantly. Now, instead of the stacks of business cards I used to have on my desk, I now only have a CardScan Executive, allowing me to recycle those little pieces of paper.
