Easy to use business card / contact management system

Summary: Being in sales, I collect a lot (hundreds) of business cards through the year. I really like the ease of use with this card management system. As soon as I have a business card, I insert it into the reader, verify the scanned data, and then toss the business card in the trash.
Summary: Just spent about one hour on tech support with Dymo support. Apparently there is a know issue with the scanner not working well/at all on USB 3 ports. Unfortunately, the Microsoft Surface I use has only one USB port, which happens to be USB 3.0. Even utilizing a port expander (which is USB 1 & 2), the scanner is never recognized. It worked well on a Windows 7 Pro x64 PC. The only issue I had was an annoyance with the scanning output to MS Outlook 2010.
Difficult to use, outdated piece of office equipment

Summary: This was a difficult, time-consuming and inefficient piece of office equipment, both inputting the data and in using it. I know other people who did use it, but there was nothing better at the time and I'm sure that the manufacturer updated it.
Only unusual cards, or cards of poor quality are not completely recognised

Summary: This piece of equipment is a time saver as most cards are scanned and categorised in one scan. Even if the card is not fully legible, the scanned image remains available for correction or retrieval
Summary: I had been using Cardscan for years with my Mac. I was highly reliable and better than any other contact management system, and I looked at them all. But since being acquired by DYMO, the product has eroded and now no longer works with the latest OSX version. I only found this out when the program stopped working. After numerous interactions with their customer support, they admitted that it no longer works and that they don't expect a fix.
Summary: I was extremely disappointed to discover after my purchase that this unit does not support Outlook 2013. The Outlook integration was the differentiating feature that lead to my purchase. I find it quite dishonest by Dymo to highlight the Outlook support in the product description, but not be clear about this very important limitation.
Excerpt: I have used a Business Card Scanner for at least 10 years. The new Executive Scanner is faster and scans both front & Back sides of each card and all information is placed in fields for easy exporting. I own a Travel Company and we collect 2200 Business cards at Virtuoso's Travel Mart each August. Now, We can access an unlimited number of cards efficiently. This is Dyno-Myte as JJ walker once said!
Pros: Easy To Transport, Easy To Use, Good Resolution, Scans Quickly
