The ABBYY Business Card Reader 2.0 for Windows automatically extracts contacts from paper business cards and transforms them into actionable electronic data. It is designed to help professionals boost their productivity, raise the effectiveness of their business communications, save time and eliminate tedious retyping. The application works with virtually any scanning device.

This version of ABBYY Business Card Reader 2.0 for Windows is a software download.

Automated Capture Of Contact Information

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

Flexible Export & 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

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

Duplicate Contacts Detection

To make sure that your contacts are always well-tended ABBYY Business Card Reader 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

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

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

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

Business Card Reader 2.0 for Windows (Software Download) is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Try before you buy If you plan to use this software download the evaluation version to test it out. I bought the software download and I have been unable to install the program. Technical support from ABBYY has been poor and have not been able to solve the issue. Many examples of this issue on the web related to microsoft security updates not allowing the program to install. Can get your money back once you purchase a software download from B&H which is simply a code to apply to the evaluation version
