Macintosh Users Have Intelligent, Helpful and Easy-to-Use Productivity Tool to Encode Business Cards.

I.R.I.S. Group today announced the availability of a new version of its unique business card reading solution, the IRIS Business Card Reader II, for use on Mac OS X.

The IRIS Business Card Reader II (IBCR II) is the ideal tool for Macintosh users to scan and encode business cards into their favorite contact manager. This time-saving device was designed specifically for busy users such as managers, salespeople, executives, etc., who regularly collect business cards and need to update their electronic contact managers.

“With its totally redesigned interface and new software architecture, the IBCR II is the fastest, easiest and most reliable tool for saving, organizing and updating contact information on the Mac environment”, said Catherine Rochigneux, Marketing Manager.

The complete IBCR II for Mac solution comprises both the dedicated I.R.I.S. business card scanner hardware and Cardiris 3.0 for Mac OS, a significantly upgraded version of Cardiris, I.R.I.S.’ business card reading software, featuring a new OCR engine, new field analysis and field parsing technology, powerful saving and export and a new user interface.

The solution works by simply inserting business cards into the scanner. Both the scanning and recognition are promptly executed. Scanned business cards are displayed in color in the Cardiris interface and the recognized data is immediately available. Equipped with an advanced “Send to” function, Cardiris exports contacts to the most popular Mac OS contact managers. The new Cardiris software can also use Apple iSync to send contacts to an iPod, PDA or mobile phone.
