I’ve been an online publisher since 2001 and I’ve been blogging since 2005. I have attended a lot of conferences over the years and one thing that I could have used was a business card scanner.
This is one of those must-have gadgets that once you have, you don’t know how you did without.
Bloggers, when you’re at a social media or blogging conference, how many PR and blogger business cards do you collect?
Most bloggers at a conference will collect anywhere from 100-500+ business cards. What do you do with all of those business cards when you get back to the office or home? I’ve heard everything from “stick them in an envelope”, “put them in a notebook”, and “store them in a box”.
Tell me.. how do you easily find a contact when their information is stuffed in a box or envelope somewhere? It’s not easy and most of us don’t take the time to sift through our office to find business cards from the last conference we attended.
That is why I love WorldCard Link’s business card scanner for the iPhone. This gadget is as amazing as it is small!
Your iPhone plugs in to this incredibly intuitive and useful device. After that it’s simple to scan every business card you’ve collected at a social media conferences such as BlogHer, or other conferences. Extremely portable, the WorldCard Link can be stored in just about any small bag such as a purse, briefcase or even a large coat pocket. Easily stowed away in a carry-on bag, the card reader goes wherever it is needed.
The genius of the device extends to how it maintains the information received from the business cards it scans. The WorldCard Link can connect to a preferred cloud based server such as Google Contacts, iCloud or even Dropbox. This makes it immensely easy to sync up with other contacts to maintain a coherent structure to anyone’s databases and client lists. In the fast paced world of business, it allows for a simple means of taking care of something that can quickly become too large for easy organization.
In the professional world, business cards are handed out by just about everyone. WorldCard Link Business Card Reader can help iPhone users maintain a powerful but simple database to house the information scanned from these cards. Thanks to cloud based servers, it will free up a professional from having to enter contact info themselves, as well as having to carry around all those business cards.
WorldCard Link is a complete business card manager for iPhone users. It comes with an ergonomic iPhone dock and an app. With iPhone on the dock, as soon as you put a business card on the other end of the dock, the app will smoothly capture all contact info for storing on the phone and sharing over the cloud. No more hand type in business cards.
