Ambir Technology, Inc. (http://www.ambir.com), a manufacturer and marketer of digital capture products today announced the release of the TravelScan Pro ME, a software and scanner combination that scans data from business cards and stores it in a searchable database. The software’s powerful OCR engine takes contact information like phone number and address and stores it in separate editable fields. This information can be synchronized with Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook® Express, Windows® Mail, Lotus Notes®, ACT!, Palm Computing Platform, or Windows Mobile devices. Data files can also be exported in CSV or vCard format.

“This is the perfect pairing of hardware and software,” said Mike O’Leary, CEO of Ambir Technology, “together they deliver a powerful contact management system to the consumer.”

The TravelScan Pro ME also includes AmbirScan and PageManager 7 software. This software allows the scanner to act as a document scanner as well as a business card scanner. The AmbirScan image scanning software supports PDF, JPEG and TIFF file formats and media sizes from business cards up to legal-sized documents. PageManager 7 is a document management program that includes drag and drop file management, a preview mode and the ability to convert files into PDF format.
