A must have tool for sales. Networking is part of my routine. Cardscan is a better, faster way of getting contact information into outlook and out to my Blackberry. I've been using Cardscan since the scanners had parallel ports. I can't imagine entering contact info by hand anymore. For me the pros are: color, power from the USB port, good software, up to date interfaces for Outlook & Blackberry & Windows Mobile. The cons are: accuracy (sometime). In fairness, this is a problem only with unusual artwork and typefaces.[...]. Suggestion: I would like to run credit card and gas receipts thru the scanner.
The Web Cardscan Account Saved Me! What I like about the CardScan Executive is that it comes with Web-based account. If you aren't near your own PC and you need contact info quickly. lust logon to www.Cardscan.com, you can retrieve your contacts quickly. I've used three earlier models of CardScan and I am really impressed with the improvement in quality that you now get with the CardScan Executive. All my sales reps have gone out and gotten their own after seeing mine. I wouldn't work without it!
Just what I was looking for... Great gadget. Finally I managed to get rid of all those business cards!!. Now I have all my supplier's information at hand in Outlook and my smartphone. The scanning is fast and accurate (90%), even for non-english charaters. On the down side, the PC software probably needs some re-work to make it more intuitive and easier to add additional information that is not present on the cards. All in all an excellent product!.
CardScan is great, but I would like more. I use CardScan to consolidate several data sets under one database.Before I used to have to enter my contacts manually and had hundreds of business cards laying out around; now that's all gone and I am more productive.After using CardScan for some some time, I have realized that there are some things that could be better. For instance, at times I would like to add a new category that I didn't have before. In order to so, I have to scroll through all the other categories. It would be a whole lot better if there was text box where I can enter the name of the category. The box would display all categories that match what I entered - sort of how tags work.[...]
