ScanBiz Mobile Solutions is tapping into the social, mobile and open capabilities of cloud computing to transform customers into social enterprises.
ScanBiz Mobile Solutions today announced it has launched its new mobile app on salesforce.com's AppExchange Mobile, extending the marketplace built for the social enterprise. ScanBizCards Business Card Reader is among the first apps to leverage AppExchange Mobile, tapping into the power of the proven Force.com platform, salesforce.com’s social enterprise platform for employee social apps. ScanBizCards Business Card Reader is currently available for test drive on the AppExchange Mobile.
ScanBizCards Business Card Reader is an iPhone and Android mobile app that allows users to snap pictures of business cards, scan them, and then add them to their contacts without having to tediously type in all the information. But scanning is just the beginning. ScanBizCards offers an enterprise suite of features including: export cards to Salesforce CRM, Data.com, or Excel, organize in folders, send quick intro e-mails to new contacts, schedule a follow-up appointment with automatic integration to the phone's calendar, and more. Users can also subscribe to the web sync service which backs up card data, keeps multiple devices in sync, and offers a full desktop application via a web interface. Most recently, ScanBizCards added the ability to have cards manually transcribed, ensuring 100 percent accurate results.
