Goodbye Rolodex - get the most out of your PDA

Presto! BizCard reader makes perfect sense for the businessperson on the go

Fremont, CA. Aug. 29, 2001 - A leading provider of innovative software solutions for imaging and video devices, NewSoft is proud to announce that its new product Presto! BizCard Reader has already received an initial order of 5000 units. They are due to hit the retail channels this September. This highly portable package combines all you need to do away with the business card clutter. "Those days of shuffling through the Rolodex are gone," said James Li, President of NewSoft Technology Corporation.

By digitizing your cards and importing them to your Personal Digital Assistants (PDA), you can take your contacts anywhere you go. At around 32k on your PDA, that is space you can afford. BizCard Reader is a complete package including software and lightweight one-touch A8 size scanner that enables you to turn those business cards into a digital database.

Presto! BizCard Reader, developed with ABBYY's award-winning OCR technology, won the Editor's Choice from CNET web for its amazing accuracy. Featuring smart field recognition, Presto! BizCard Reader can assign the name to the correct column in your database - all you need to do is put the card in the scanner, it does not even matter how colorful the background is or the layout of the card. "We have excellent algorithms to determine the field, which means that the package can scan and read the card no matter which way it is fed into the scanner. We plan to apply for the patent in this field," said Li.

Besides, its recognition speed is just a few seconds - from image scanning to being recognized and then being assigned to the correct column. Furthermore, using Palm system, Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Lotus Organizer or Symantec Act! you can synchronize Presto! BizCard Reader with your PDA without a complicated set up.

Presto! BizCard Reader is a very affordable yet powerful tool for those running a SOHO business or someone who is on the road much of the time. "This product is suitable for executives and business professionals who meet a lot of people and exchange business cards on a regular basis," continued Li. After attending a trade show or conference just scan those cards into your computer and you are ready to store, search or even print labels for bulk mailing purposes.
