My clients have a ton of business cards....is there a scanner that will let them mass scan these and place them in outlook or something of that nature.

Pretty much all scanners with a feed tray have the ability to scan business cards.
This one has a 50 page feed tray and can do cards:

The problem comes in that most scanners are just going to shoot out a PDF, so getting them into outlook is still the problem. The ones that I have seen that will do the conversion to v-cards by "reading" the text have all been single feed items designed for business cards. There may be software available for this, but I do not know.

We have several of these at work:

Which imports them into outlook contacts well, but obviously it is a one off scan.
