From the Manufacturer
Saving time capturing business cards is only the beginning.
Designed for the power user and those with more advanced contact management needs, CardScan Executive allows you to scan, drag and drop or import contacts, and manage them with ease. Synchronize your data with Outlook®, Lotus® Notes, ACT!* ®, GoldMine®*, Palm® and Windows® Mobile devices. Batch scan a trade show’s worth of cards - the Executive can handle it - it comes with a faster, more powerful scanner that adds color to your contacts.
Scanning business cards is only half the story. You’re likely getting as many contacts in email these days. We make quick work of that, too.
Simply highlight the contact information in an email signature, web page or other text file and drag it over to the CardScan software. It’s instantly placed into the correct fields. It can’t be much easier than that!
If you’re sync’ing to Outlook, you now have your contact data there too, all with one click of the mouse. CardScan is also the only leading business card reader with online back-up, web access and an updating service. We keep your data safe so you can access it anytime.
How’s it different from other CardScan products?
If you use a PC: Only solution in the industry to include free, secure online backup and updating service.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How long will it take me to set up the product and get my cards scanned in?
You can set up your CardScan system in about five-ten minutes for individual users, or a few minutes more if you are using one of our solutions for CRM systems. Between 20-40 cards can be scanned per minute, depending on your system and whether you scan in color or black and white.
Can the product read hand written notes?
The product will scan hand written notes, but will not be able to interpret them. An image will be saved of the notes for you to refer to or type in later.
Can it scan insurance cards/receipts/driver’s licenses?
The card will scan most anything that fits within the dimensions of the width of a business card, but the software is not set up to put the information on cards other than business cards into special fields. The image of these cards will be saved, however.
What PDAs does CardScan work with?
Currently, CardScan works with Palm, Handspring, Sony CLI É and Windows Mobile devices.
How accurate is your product?
CardScan can accurately scan most business cards. If you can read the card, CardScan can also. The product will also highlight any fields it feels might be wrong so you can verify the information and correct it if necessary.

My only quibble is with the free online backup that they offer: the fine print tells you that they will email everyone on your contact list periodically to encourage them to join up. This sounds like a great way to lose all your friends, so I didn't do it.
In the past, coworkers have argued that the accuracy of such products is so low (<90% that they offer little value beyond the manual entry process. While the OCR accuracy of scanning complicated multicolored business cards is in fact only 85% to 90%, the CardScan software facilitates very rapid manual correction of the data. Not only are all of the relevant fields laid out in a consistent tabular form regardless of the original order, but the CardScan software highlights questionable data. At the same time, it allows the user to compare this data to the saved scanned image of the card. This juxtaposition is an important element of the value proposition of CardScan Executive solution. Regardless of the accuracy, the scanned images can be flipped through while inspecting the estimated OCR text. It is important to note that the user can scan hundreds of business cards, rapidly one at a time, before any of the time consuming manual correction takes place.
This automated process capability is one element of the software that I didn't fully understand before purchase. Assume you have 500 business cards that have elaborate graphics, which leads you to correctly guess there may be a high error rate. This isn't necessarily a problem as you can 1) scan all of the cards then 2) process (i.e.Read more ›
Unfortunately it won't work with Win 7 x64. The scanner doesn't have a driver for x64 and the software becomes inoperative in a Win 7 x64 environment.
Too bad because it was a 5 star device in a 32 bit environment.
Apparently it doesn't generate enough profit for Dymo for them to keep it current.
