Business cards remain one of the best networking tools in any professional’s arsenal. Unfortunately, they’re usually still printed on paper. Even with heavyweight card stock, paper business cards are easily lost or wind up wet and ruined. Why lose contact information if you don’t have to? Enter the Penpower WorldCardColor Business Card Scanner. This quick and portable business card scanner makes it easy to stay professional, by keeping colleague’s contact info at your fingertips.
Besides paper’s flimsy nature, the other problem with business cards is their clutter. If you’ve attended a convention or large-scale networking event recently, you might even have a shoebox full of them stashed away somewhere. It’s time-consuming to input all that contact information into Outlook and other programs, even with the help of a personal assistant. The Penpower WorldCardColor Business Card Scanner is perfect for getting rid of all those paper scraps. Just feed a business card into the scanner, and you’re done. The Penpower WorldCardColor is also USB-powered, making it perfect for portable use with your laptop.
Though just having somewhere to scan your business cards is great for business travelers, the Penpower WorldCardColor ups the ante even further. For international travelers, this business card scanner recognizes and translates text in up to 14 languages. Your scanned data can easily be exported to your smartphone, letting you stay in touch no matter where you are. The WorldCard software also allows you to organize contacts your own way, making it easy to organize contacts by language or by area. For conventioneers, this also makes remembering where you met someone simple – a must for reconnecting.
The one drawback worth mentioning is from potentially misleading advertising. The Penpower WorldCardColor is billed as a double-sided scanner, also known as a “duplex scanner.” Unfortunately, that’s not completely true. What makes duplex scanners special is their ability to scan both sides of an item in a single pass. While the Penpower WorldCardColor Business Card Scanner will save both sides of a card as a single item at your request, it still requires two separate scans. So, for those of you hoping to save some manual scanning time, this may not be the card scanner for you.
The Penpower WorldCardColor Business Card Scanner is a smart, fast way to scan and organize all those business cards. Save and export information for all your contacts digitally, without ever searching for a scrap of paper again.
