Summary: If you are a mobile professional, an accountant, a receptionist, a secretary, a business owner, or really anyone with a need to enter data from contact and business cards, there is simply no better way we’ve found than the CardScan Executive.
Excerpt: For those of us without assistants, manually entering business cards into our address books is a task so torturous that we might start thinking about hiring someone-you know, maybe just part-time. Or we could drop two Benjamins on a machine to ease the task.
Pros: Supremely easy to use-just stick in a card and push enter. Idiot-proof transferring wizard. It’ll even scan your own card and export it to Outlook or Lotus Notes to use as your email signature. Pulls power from your USB jack, so there’s no cord jungle.
Cons: PC-only (come on!), and commonly misreads, of all characters, the @ symbol. Also has a problem with “W,” but then, who doesn’t?
