On-the-fly scan technology and background recognition processing enable users to continue scanning successive cards without data processing interruption using the included, trade-show-portable, 600 dpi gray-scale scanner. The intuitive software automatically recognizes the contacts first and last name, city and state, telephone, fax number, email, website address, and more, filing each in their own, searchable category.
