ABBYY, the provider of document recognition, capture, and linguistic technologies and services, has announced the availability of Business Card Reader 2.0 for Windows, an application for transforming paper business cards into electronic contacts.

The reader scans business cards, extracts and identifies contact data by type. The extracted data can then be exported into a contact management system such as MS Outlook and Salesforce, or saved to electronic formats.

Business Card Reader is based on ABBYY’s optical character recognition technology delivering up to 99,8 percen accuracy of text recognition. “Accuracy and reliability are the top priorities when working with contact data”, said Sergey Popov, director of FineReader Products Department at ABBYY. “As opposed to manual re-typing of contacts, Business Card Reader helps users both save time and avoid possible errors and information loss, yet providing full control over processing results.”

ABBYY Business Card Reader identifies all contact data types including name, phone numbers, address, e-mail, title, company information, and other information. After detection, the data can be automatically allocated to the appropriate fields in a database or alternatively, saved as an electronic file for further use. The export options include direct export to Microsoft Outlook and Salesforce, saving data to CSV format for export to Microsoft Excel or another contact management system, saving contacts as vCard files for easy sharing with Google contacts and Google Calendar TM, Apple iPad and Mac.

ABBYY Business Card Reader can process up to 10 business cards all at once when working with flatbed scanners. The app provides automatic card splitting and orientation adjustment, and features a smart scan function to allow users to start the next scan while processing a current task.
