How to Scan Your Contacts into Salesforce

Take your business to the next level. With one device, eliminate manual data entry error and automate your contact list management process. An Ambir scanner paired with our AmbirScan Business Card Software enables you to scan and digitize both business cards and documents for a quick and efficient upload to third party marketing and sales CRMs, like Salesforce.

You want your contacts readily available at the click of a button. Using OCR technology, AmbirScan Business Card Software reads all of the information off of your scanned card and creates a CSV file to conveniently store and backup your data. From here, you can directly upload into Saleforce for maximum convenience. With AmbirScan, you are also able to search previous scans by keyword to effortlessly locate the file you need. It has never been easier to organize and keep track of your contact information.
