CardScan Executive


The Cost of Doing Business Cards

Scans business cards and saves contact info as editable text quickly and (mostly) reliably. Syncs with Address Book. Quiet, solid scanner

Expensive. Scans only one card at a time. Intel-only software

The CardScan Executive takes some of the drudgery out of getting the information on business cards into your Mac, but not quite enough to recommend to most users.

Cardscan Executive


Turning that stack of business cards you have sitting around into usable contact information has always been a challenge. The traditional solution is to get a business-card scanner such as the CardScan Executive ($259.99 direct). If you're already...

Small size. Powered through USB cable. Highly accurate text recognition and parsing of text on business cards

No automatic document feeder. Pricey

The CardScan Executive's strength lies in the CardScan software, which is still among the best available for reading business cards and parsing text.

Business card scanner and contact manager system in one

CardScan Executive


Here at PCA Towers we're drowning in business cards - it's our only perk (apart from booze and groupies, obviously). But not being organised, we find it difficult to keep track of these useful contacts.

If you're cursed with piles of random business cards - and using a Rolodex makes you feel a bit too JR Ewing - the CardScan Executive is for you. It's smart, effective and easy to use. But not cheap.

CardScan Executive V8


It probably won't revolutionise the office, but if you're looking for a fast, easy and safe way to store your business card collection, the CardScan Executive V8 is certainly worth considering

Fast in operation, Easy to use, Lightweight and portable

Not 100% accurate, Expensive, Doesn't support Office 2007

A useful bit of kit for anyone who exchanges a high volume of business cards

I bought a Cardscan. After I could not get it to work I started emailing for help. I was ignored for over 2 years! Finally a rep answered and told me that it could not be installed on a 64 bit system. NOTHING on the box, in the description or in the...

Product Specifications

CardScan makes managing, finding and reaching contacts a snap. Assign contacts to any of the scores of business categories provided, or create custom categories of your own. Find contacts as you type your search criteria with CardScan's QuickSearch feature. Use the de-duping wizard to eliminate duplicate records. Print labels to any DYMO LabelWriter, to most every other label format - or print directly on envelopes. Just click to call any contact, to send email to single or multiple contacts, or to generate a MapQuest map for any contact location. Use a PDA or handheld? CardScan's ability to synchronize with these and other devices makes it the ideal contact management hub. In addition to all these great features that CardScan has offered for years, there are a number of new features in CardScan version 8 that make managing contacts even easier.
