CardScan Executive desktop business card scanner: bringing order to the busy businessman



OK, so organising your business cards (you have business cards, right?) isn’t the most exciting thing ever, but is necessary and a perfect excuse for a piece of technology to help.

Mini desktop scanners aren’t particularly new but version 8 of the CardScan Executive, released last week, is compact and versatile.

It features a sleekly designed desktop scanner with contemporary styling and silver finish. It makes colour scans of business cards in three seconds, and synchronises with Outlook/Outlook Express as well as ACT!, Lotus Notes, GoldMine, PDAs and smart phones.

It comes with CardScan software that can consolidate contact data using drag-and-drop and import, eliminate duplicate records, categorise contacts in multiple ways, and keep data synchronised across devices.

CardScan Executive costs £199. There’s also a CardScan Personal version that scans in monochrome (£139)
