CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 29, 2000

Award-winning business card scanning system now scans most

international business cards and provides pass-thru parallel and USB

ports so multiple users can choose their connection method

Corex Technologies Corporation today introduced CardScan(TM) Office, the business card management system for workgroups. CardScan Office is comprised of one scanner and six software licenses, so multiple users can take advantage of the award-winning business card scanning system's time-saving and productivity benefits. At less than $85 per seat, new CardScan Office is a cost-effective and essential office tool, which enables workgroups to transform business card clutter into powerful, shared electronic data, without typing.

With an increasing number of businesses from small offices to large corporations using less administrative assistance than ever, CardScan is an ideal solution to help minimize the burden of data entry. CardScan Office enables teams to share access to important contact information department or company wide, with a centralized scanner and software on each desktop, which further leverages CardScan's cost effectiveness. Additional software licenses can be purchased as the need arises.

"CardScan is a valuable office tool, especially for professionals who want to make the most of administrative resources," said Rob Shavell, technology analyst for Datamonitor. "CardScan Office is the answer for professionals who don't collect enough business cards to justify investing in CardScan individually. By using the workgroup solution, multiple professionals with a small, yet important number of business cards can all benefit from CardScan."

Corex learned through extensive end-user research that sixty-five percent of its customers do not have a centralized database. CardScan software can be shared across a network, so colleagues can swiftly and easily access important contact information located in a CardScan database. CardScan databases also can be password protected, so any proprietary or personal information can be kept private.

"Corex recognized the need for an affordable, shared CardScan solution, so we are introducing CardScan Office for our customers who want to share accurate contact information effortlessly, whether they are down the hall or working remotely thousands of miles away," said Jonathan Stern, president and CEO of Corex. "CardScan's versatile, easy to use features make it simple for users with limited technical knowledge to leverage its benefits, while it also provides technological intricacies that are attractive to more sophisticated users. For professionals who want to clean up the clutter taking over their desks, organize an unmanageable paper Rolodex, or want to eliminate the hassle of combing through their colleagues desks looking for important contact information, CardScan Office is the answer."

CardScan enables busy professionals to quickly scan business cards into a PC and accurately categorize, search and act upon vital contact information. Users increase productivity, save time, get organized and eliminate clutter, all without the drudgery of manual data entry. CardScan also provides the fastest and most accurate way to get business card information into personal digital assistants, popular desktop personal information managers and digital mobile phones such as the PalmPilot, Lotus Notes, Microsoft Outlook, Symantec ACT!, Nokia phones and many others.
