NewSoft Debuts Presto! BizCard Xpress at MacWorld
New scan-to-address book, synch to iCloud offering joins company’s Mac products demoed at show
Fremont, CA – January 25, 2012 MacWorld Booth #309 - (Virtual Press Office) – NewSoft, a leading provider of productivity-enhancing software, today announced Presto! BizCard Xpress for Mac, a new business card scanning solution that scans business cards directly into Apple’s Address Book for Mac OS X, and also synchs to Apple’s iCloud. Presto! Biz Card Xpress, which will be demonstrated for the first time at MacWorld, joins the line-up of NewSoft’s Mac products that will also be demonstrated at the show: Presto! BizCard iPhone, and Presto! PageManager 9 for Mac and PageManager for iPad. MacWorld 2012 will be held January 26-28 in San Francisco.
“Presto! BizCard Xpress enhances Apple’s Address Book with drag and drop-to-scan-direct or scan with any TWAIN scanner to convert business card images into contacts,” says Johnson Yang, general manager of NewSoft America. “And with iCloud automatic synch feature, those contacts can then be shared with other iOS devices. It’s an essential tool for Mac users to import all of their business cards.”
Keeping Your Business Card Information Connected and in the Correct Contact Fields
Presto! BizCard Xpress allows users to keep their contacts connected via Apple Address Book and iCloud. Simply dragging and dropping business card images to the menu bar enables the immediate recognition process, or scan directly through TWAIN scanners. Using NewSoft’s Smart Field Identification Technology (SFIT), BizCard Xpress identifies the first and last names, company, phone numbers, email, street, city and zip code information from the business card.
From there, all of the recognized contact information is then distributed to the correct fields within Apple Address Book. Users can then share this contact information with a host of Mac and PC devices as a result of the automatic synching of iCloud and Apple Address Book. The business card information can also be transferred to Microsoft Outlook 2011 Contacts. And since all of the scanned business card information can be saved in a specific, standard MacOS folder, users can retrieve the original business cards when needed.
Presto! BizCard Xpress provides automatic language detection of more than 20 languages. The User Interface (UI) is available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
