Like many of my fellow entrepreneurs and clients, I have information overload. How can I best organize this information so I can find it when I need it? How can I merge all of my Yahoo contacts, Apple contacts, Gmail contacts, clients and business cards? Camcard.
The app allowed me to import all of my contacts which is wonderful! The big relief came with the main reason I looked into the app…Business Cards. What in the world do you do with them? The number of ways to create categories could drive a person crazy…quite literally.
How does it work with the cards?
You take a picture and the app will automatically transfer the information on the card into a contact system. Not all info will transfer correctly, especially if people deviate from the suggested text fields (putting the business name where the first and last name should go), or it they use a font that is difficult to read. You can group your contacts and take notes within the card.
Why is a digital format so valuable for business cards?
Well, did you for them by industry, networking group, business name, first name, last name… You get the picture. And what if you can not remember the name of a store but know what street it is on? Simply type the street name into the search field and the card will be found. Very powerful! Also, how great is it to be able to give friends, family, clients and contacts information immediately instead of going back to your desk, looking it up and them calling them or emailing the information to them.
Finally, since you have a digital copy of the card, you can pass it on to someone else, or recycle it. There is little to no reason that you would need to hold on to a hard copy of the card…I. AM. IN. LOVE!
