business card


With our service, we can collect your business cards from anywhere in the UK and Europe. If you want, we can return the originals to you as well.


Before we capture the data from your business cards, we scan both sides in colour. For this, we use state-of-the-art specialist scanners.

Data Capture

We use double-pass processing to ensure data capture is as accurate as possible. We process the scanned cards using our advanced data capture system. This is followed by manual checks and reformatting.

data delivery


Once scanned, we’ll provide the images to you in PDF/JPEG formats. We return your captured data in Exel, CSV or an Outlook address book, provided via CD, USB or secure download link.

Easy Access & Retrieval

Business cards are usually stored in boxes and accessed when needed. But, problems can occur when you’re looking for specific ones. With a digital library of business cards, you can find the ones you need quickly and conveniently.

Time Saving

While some businesses and individuals can scan and digitise their business cards independently, it can be costly and time-consuming. You can cut this out by outsourcing your business card scanning to us.


After we’ve extracted the data from your business cards, we present it in a format that ensures compatibility with any third-party CRM system including Salesforce and Oracle.
