Tip of the Week: Never Pay to Print Business Cards Again

Tip of the Week: Never Pay to Print Business Cards Again

It’s just good business to hand out your business card to prospective clients, and it has been for a very long time. As far back as the Renaissance, special guests were announced with name cards that displayed who the guest was and what types of greetings were due. It wasn’t until the Industrial Revolution that business cards became primarily a means of displaying trades or professional skills. Business cards are mostly used for marketing and networking in the modern age, and your organization should be using them.

Software developers have started to create applications that make using business cards even easier. Here are some of the features of these apps and how you can use them to your advantage.

Drop is an app that serves two major purposes. It’s basically a virtual business card, but it also lets you take a quick snapshot of any new business card you’re given and save it automatically into a contact. Now you won’t have to worry about keeping the card safe and sound in your wallet.

It’s easy to see why Drop is such a great networking tool. Since you aren’t reliant on keeping the card on your person, you will have an easier time keeping track of it in your smartphone. However, you have to watch out for the app misreading the names or looking at the wrong address.

Overall, Drop is a solid solution, and it’s compatible with both Android and iOS devices. It even has a geolocation feature that can group your cards together based on the scanning location, or extract information from a business card you had already taken a photo of. Finally, you can create your own digital business cards, which is something that you could do even without having the app installed.

CamCard is a solution that helps your business manage its business cards, as well as scan and collect information associated with them through a mobile app. Since it’s a cloud-based service, your scanned cards can be accessed on any connected device, be it a tablet, smartphone, or your web browser. You can also annotate scanned cards for any meetings or scheduled appointments that might be associated with them.

CamCard also has a business app that you can use to share business card information with your organization’s internal sales department. You can use this app to keep your organization up-to-date on information sharing. Information can be shared to either your entire organization or by department. Furthermore, integration with Google Contacts, Outlook Contacts, and Microsoft Excel can be achieved, and you can set up user access roles based on who you want to access this vital information.
