Key piece of gear for trade shows. Great product. Makes it easy to share contact data from trade shows throughout company. Great tool for the Manufacturer's Rep. Allows transmittal of card info. Makes it a snap to make business card data available and easily searchable. Sorting by Zip Code and by State would be a big plus. Need to create easy interface with IPOD units.
A complete product that does the job. Cardscan is a nice compact product that does one job really well -- it scans business cards and tries really hard to bring contact information into your contact product. It presents them nicely for verification. No OCR is as good as the human eye, but CardScan has done a great job. I would like CardScan not to try so hard to get my contact information on the net since they will contact my contacts for "verification" purposes. I strongly prefer not to have this happen. I would gladly recommend CardScan to my contacts myself, however. Also, it would be great if CardScan had some fuzzy logic to allow merging of contact databases while removing duplicates from Outlook and other PIMs. Support is great and personal over email in this day and age of virtually no support. They allow you to contact them without wading through a number of screens.
Data input. I left a Chamber of Commerce networking lunch with a mitt full of cards and shuddered at the thought of the time it would take to input each card. I stopped at a Staples, hoping there was something that could help me. [...] BEST ever piece of equipment I have ever bought. It synchronizes with Outlook, my Palm and updates via email all of my contacts. I even found a friend that I had lost track of when he updated Cardscan. I would never be without it.
Very handy, web access handy! I like it, and after every event I have all my cards upload.when I was in between computers (one holy day setting up) it was really handy that I was able to access others people computers. Also is great travelling, at a hotel or an event kiosk computer. Just go to the web and be able to retrieve my contats. That is great.
