How our business card scanning service works at Pearl Scan
Fast and secure collection service
We can collect the business cards from anywhere in the UK the same or the next day.
Scanning and data capture
We will scan your business cards using our high-resolution business card scanners in full colour format, which allow us to capture the data with much greater accuracy than traditional scanners. We utilise automatic, semi-automatic or manual scanning and data capture methods depending upon the type and condition of the original cards. We typically scan both sides of the business card in colour to produce 2 x pages PDF file and capture and export the following data;
- Company Name
- First Name
- Telephone Number
- Fax Number
- Mobile Number
- Email Address
- Website Address
- Address Lin 1
- Address Lin 2
- Address Lin 3
- Address Lin 4
- Postal Code
The extracted business card data is fully checked before it is compiled into the final data delivery format.
We can convert your captured data to a range of formats including CSV, Excel spread sheets and Outlook databases.
We can then deliver your data to you via email, CD, DVD, USB or secure FTP. All files can be fully encrypted for data protection.
Once you are happy with your digital data, we can return your business cards to you, store them for a further period or shred and destroy them for you.
