Business Cards, the short profile of a person that reflects his talents are very important to express the professionalism one has. But one disadvantage business cards have is that all of them get lost in the pocket of a rugged wallet or in the business card holder. But thanks to technology and the digitization of everything that we are now leaving the paper trails behind us and moving forward to the virtual world. You can scan business cards by using business card scanner apps. In this article, I will tell you about some of the best business card scanner apps. Below is the list.

Microsoft Office Lens can be used for many things, one of them is the Business Card Scanner mode. It uses the OCR to format and save the business card’s information in OneNote, so you can access all the information later.

The Business card scanner on Evernote is just amazing. You have to just keep the camera on the card and the application will cut alongside the edges automatically.
