ScanBizCards App ~ My Personal Favorite Business Card Scanner-Reader (update) ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ

September 27, 2013

๐ŸŽ ScanBiz Mobile Solutions released a very popular productivity App for the iPhone, ScanBizCards. ScanBizcards is unlike any other business card reader-scanner with features usually reserved for full-blown, expensive enterprise PC and MAC applications. Built specifically for iPhones, ScanBizCards App boasts new features that turn the iPhone into a powerful contact relationship-manager device. To me there is nothing more annoying than having to manually create Contacts by typing all the details. This App solves this problem beautifully.

๐ŸŽ ScanBizCards App. Nothing could be more simple:
1โƒฃ someone gives you a business card,
2โƒฃ launch the ScanBizCards App,
3โƒฃ snap the Business Card with your iPhone’s camera,
4โƒฃ the App gives you an opportunity to crop the image to remove the background,
5โƒฃ the tap “Scan” and the App “reads” the business card with a clever scanner-animation
6โƒฃ displays results, line-by-line,
7โƒฃ you review the results and edit if necessary, and
8โƒฃ press Place into Contacts. A 30 second process, Its that Simple, and the business card image is placed into the Photo Box of the Contacts.

๐ŸŽ Simply snapping a picture of a business card effortlessly adds its information to contacts, helps act upon follow-up items and instantly connects friends, colleagues, partners, and prospects through multiple web and mobile channels, if you chose to do so.

๐ŸŽ ScanBizCards "coverts" Business Cards, by photographing it with your iPhone’s Camera, which creates a high quality "Scan." The ScanBizCards App then rotates, crops and “reads” every line on the Business Card, using its artificial-intelligence capabilities, placing the Name in the Name-Field, the Phone Number into the Phone-Number Field, business name in the Company field… then you shown all the results to verify the results, once you review the data, press a button and the new Contact enters your Contacts data-base. You have an opportunity to make any edits that may be necessary in the event the OCR, the optical character recognition algorithms miss-read a portion of the business card, for example a card with a “script” Name of Business which is the most common issue.

๐ŸŽ In my personal experience, the ScanBizCards App reads business cards very efficiently, then gives you an opportunity to approve the results, and with a simple tap of a button, the business card information is added to your iPhone Contacts. The App does lots more too, however, mostly Card Scanning and placement into My Contacts is the primary use.

๐ŸŽ Incidentally, I migrated from the CardScan App, as over the past several months it constantly fails to respond to the scan; apparently CardScan has issues. I emailed CardScan several times with no response, so I’m now the "best friend" with ScanBizCards App which functions perfectly.

๐ŸŽ ScanBizCards App ~ The Favorite Business Card Scanner-Reader. The only business card reader with cloud backup & sync across multiple iOS and Android devices + web-based access to cards from any browser. Just released is the ScanBizCards HD App for the iPad offering stunning side-by-side composite views.

๐ŸŽ Supports business cards in 21 languages: Czech, Danish, English, German, Finnish, French, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovakian, Spanish, Serbian, Swedish, Turkish, Vietnamese.

๐ŸŽ ScanBizCards is the favorite business-card reader with reviewers because it doesn’t just scan and add contacts to the address book (and does it better than other apps) – but also goes much beyond, offering 22 premium features not included in ANY other business card scanner. ScanBizCards is the only scanning app relevant to the iPad and the only app with real-time backup to the Cloud and web-based access to your cards.
