Does anybody know of a good business card scanning software that will work with any existing scanner (flatbed, etc.) to scan cards directly to Outlook?  I'd like to avoid the export/import process.  This is for our sales team, so I don't want to give them another piece of hardware to carry around.

CardScan seems to be the popular choice for this,  and the software does in fact with work third party scanners.  (or at least it used to ) I know it also works well with outlook.

It seems like CardScan will 'sync' with Outlook.  I was hoping to find something that works directly with Outlook & third-party scanners.  The other one seems to be only for iPhone.

Commented:
That one is iPhone only, but I know there are other apps for android windows and BB's out there that will do what you are looking for, I just happen to have used this app at a previous employer.

CardScan has one that will work with BBs, but how well does a phone camera work compared to an actual scanner?

Commented:
depends on the phone, but quality does not really matter as it is just using OCR to extract the information.
