Business Card Apps for Your Smartphone

The paper business card is still one of the enduring legacy items in business, but of course, there is an app for that! 

If you’re cutting back on your paper use, or you are simply tired of handing out and accumulating paper business cards, then these are some of the best business card apps to help you out.

 

     a) Covve

Covve offers an innovative approach to business card management:

1.  you scan the business card you just received, Covve automatically reads and completes the contact, it then looks for extra info on the web like the person’s picture and social profile links to add to the contact;
2. click a button and you send back your own card – a seamless card exchange;
3. Covve then reminds you to follow-up at the right time, by scanning news sites for latest news affecting your new contacts’ company and sends you a notification to reach out!

You can even keep notes against the cards you send out.

Covve offers unlimited card scanning and sending for free on iOS and Android – check it out here.

 

     b) Cam Card

Cam Card is a fully featured business card focused app, which allows you to exchange cards with prospective business partners. Cam Card also syncs with Salesforce so your new cards will automatically be saved to the database for a later easy access.

 

 

     c) Scan Biz Cards

This app offers integration with the most popular CRM software, making it a great way to ensure your new contacts are backed up effectively. The free version offers quite limited functionality with some features currently only available to American users.

     e) Wantedly People

      f) Business Cards by Desygner

If you want to create a really cool looking card then this app will allow you to customize to your heart’s content. You can then save and easily share the image of your business card from your phone using social media, SMS or NFC. This is an app for design rather than capture or storage.
