Review: Plustek OptiCard 821 Scanner

 

Every time I go to a trade show or other event I always come away with stacks of business cards. Trying to manage all those cards can be quite a task. Having a Business card scanner can really make managing contacts a lot easier. Plustek recently...

rang into customer service to sort through software usage... hope to hear soon.

easy software load

but no clear instructions on actual use. And why 4 different software programs when I just want a rolodex of the cards? not intuitive

We just needed a little scanner for scanning applicants driver's licenses. This little scanner does the trick nicely.

Product Specifications

The Plustek OptiCard 821, a palm-size mobile A6 scanner, is packed with more advanced functions. Aside from scanning photo documents and business cards, it also scans all types of checks, as well as plastic embossed cards such as insurance cards, membership cards, social security cards and credit cards. The OptiCard 821 is bundled with the BCR (Business Card Reader) which provides automatic recognition of company name, job title, person's name, address, telephone and fax number as shown on the pre-scanned business cards. Users then have the flexibility of saving the files to Excel or sending the files to Outlook for further categorization. Of course, any further change or addition of information can be arranged directly through the BCR software. Beside the business card management, the OptiCard 821 features a scanning area of 105mm x 148mm and supports a maximum of 500mm through TWAIN. Based on the bundled image-processing software, the OptiCard 821 is able to process multi-image such as the conversion of photographs to digital image in terms of providing users the options to save, edit, print or recover the integrity of the original images. The combination of OptiCard 821 and image-processing software generates all-around and sophisticated functions of image editing, categorizing and searching.
