Business Card Reader automatically scans and “reads” paper business cards and sends the contact data to an external database – or saves it to an electronic format of your choice. Based on ABBYY’s intelligent data capture technology, it accurately identifies information according to its type (First Name, Last Name, Phone Numbers, Address, etc.) and sends it to the corresponding fields in a database.
Multiple business card scanning
The application allows you to scan and read up to 10 business cards simultaneously in a session when working with flatbed scanners. All contacts will be separated from each other and allocated to the corresponding fields of the database.
Flexible export and sharing options
ABBYY Business Card Reader 2.0 offers various options for exporting contact data to your preferred contact management system:
Direct export to Microsoft® Outlook®, to an already existing contacts folder or a new one, created from within the application
Direct export to Salesforce®
Saving data to CSV format for export to Microsoft Excel® or any other contact management system
Saving contacts as vCard files for easy sharing with Google® contacts and Google Calendar™, Apple® iPad®and Mac®.
Comprehensive language support
ABBYY BCR technology reads business cards in 25 popular languages which include both European and some Asian languages. In addition, it can easily process data from multilingual business cards.
Duplicate contacts detection
To make sure that your contacts are always well-tended ABBYY Business Card Reader will automatically checks new data against the existing information in the database when exporting contacts to Microsoft Outlook® or Salesforce®. If a similar contact is already stored in the database, the software automatically alerts you and provides the options of replacing the old contact with the new one, updating it or keeping them both.
Quick scan function
You can scan business cards while previously scanned cards are still being recognized, simply by clicking the “Scan Next” button and letting the program work for you.
Dual side scanning support
You can scan both sides of a business card in one operation by using a scanner with dual-side mode. The second side of a business card will be saved as a picture (without recognition) with all the important contact information captured and allocated.
Compatibility with virtually any scanner
ABBYY Business Card Reader works with any TWAIN or WIA compatible scanner, multifunction peripheral (MFP) or any business card scanner. The product can also process card images captured by digital cameras or mobile devices.
