Holiday Gift Guide | DYMO® CardScan Personal Review

If you are anything like me then your home office desk and purse is jam packed with lots of business cards. In an effort to become more organized and less cluttered, I have started using the DYMO® CardScan® for personal use. It has made a big difference and even my husband was complimentary that our home office space is much more organized since using this personal business card scanner.

The DYMO® CardScan® Personal is a portable, palm sized scanner that would be the perfect gift idea for those who travel a lot on business or who simply have a lot of clutter in the home office! This handy device is affordably priced and very easy to use to “capture, organize and manage your contacts faster than ever.” I love that I can simply scan the information directly from the business card and even drag from emails or web pages making the CardScan® very versatile.

This portable contact management system for PC use includes everything that you will need including the DYMO® CardScan® Personal Scanner, travel pouch, CardScan® Software DVD, USB 2.0 cable and the helpful Quick Start Guide. The software is user friendly and synchs with Outlook® as well as other leading software or handheld devices. I love that I can quickly edit, sort, search and even put the information into designated categories. Organizing all of my contacts, information and data has never been easier since using the CardScan®!

Additional Feature of the DYMO® CardScan® includes:

• Synchronise or export to Outlook, Outlook Express, smart phones, Palm, Windows Mobile devices.

• Easily categorise contacts, search, sort, de-dupe, print labels, map addresses and much more.

• Consolidate all your contact data using drag-and-drop from email and web sites.

• Accurately scan and read business cards in seconds and create a digital address book.

You can head over to the DYMO® website to learn more about the CardScan® or find a store nearest you. While you are visiting you can also browse the entire selection of home and office solutions.
