I.R.I.S biz card scanners
I.R.I.S today rolled out its IRISCard 4 family of A6 color business card readers, which it claims are the smallest and fastest available. The device is compact and light, powered by USB to quickly scan business cards and store the information for later. Smart tools allow efficient contact management via search, sort, and export functionality. The device takes just six seconds to scan a business card in its standard configuration (400 dpi), while a fast scanning mode (300 dpi grayscale) scans at speeds of up to 3 seconds per card. The latest revision of the IRISCard brings USB 2 connectivity alongside support for 600 dpi color scanning and enhanced software. The IRISCard 4 works with Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows systems, recognizing business cards from 217 countries. The IRISCard 4 Mini is priced at $130, while the IRISCard 4 Pro is available for $200. The IRISCard 4 Corporate and Corporate for Microsoft Dynamics CRM are priced at $300 and $350, respectively.
