Devonport, Tasmania (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
ASTARICKS Pty Ltd announces the release of ASTARICKS, a new type of digital business card system. The new system provides businesses and business people with a suite of products and services that can help them promote, network and connect seamlessly.
The core of the system is ASTARICKS Cards, a new type of interactive, updatable and secure digital business card. ASTARICKS Cards allow businesses and business people to place their full contact details, 10 pictures, logo, company slogan, website links, social connectors, ‘About Us’ information, operating hours, map, directions, specials, promotions and more into their Card.
Allen Smith, Founder and CEO of ASTARICKS said “We’re turning the traditional business card into a powerful sales and marketing tool. Businesses can create an ASTARICKS Card and fill it with their full contact details, big pictures, social connectors, web links, product information, coupons and more.”
ASTARICKS Cards are richly formatted and designed to present and promote businesses and business people in a professional and engaging way whilst providing a suite of products and services that allows consumers to save, sort, view and share the cards with ease.
The suite of products and services includes a new ground-breaking digital business card, a card linking and sharing system, an online business directory, an iPhone app, a Windows 7 & 8 desktop app, Microsoft Outlook add-in, enhanced mapping solution, free cloud account, card management portal and analytics.
“There’s no other digital business card system on the market like ASTARICKS,” Mr Smith said.
“We’ve developed a system that not only acts as a digital business card system it also acts as a lead retrieval system, a contact management system, a mini CRM and an advertising platform. The system has a very high value proposition that businesses and business people can leverage to their advantage,” Mr Smith said.
Businesses can use ASTARICKS to increase brand exposure, product awareness and customer engagement. Consumers can use ASTARICKS to quickly find, view, pre-qualify and connect with a business.
ASTARICKS Cards are updatable. Businesses can update the information and pictures within their Cards and everyone who has collected those Cards will receive the updated information.
ASTARICKS not only overcomes the problems associated with out-of-date contact information, it also protects against a loss of branding by ensuring that the brands and logos of businesses are regularly displayed.
A unique card sharing system called ASTARICKS Codes provides a seamless method of linking, viewing and sharing ASTARICKS Cards. ASTARICKS Codes are number based codes that can include the phone number of the business that owns the Card.
“There's equity in your business phone number – it appears on all your business cards, letterhead, signage, shop front, vehicles and also in your advertising including billboards, flyers, newspapers, magazines, TV and radio ads. ASTARICKS turns your phone number into a powerful link that can be used to download your ASTARICKS Card straight into a customer’s mobile device so they can get all your business contact details, pictures, links and more at their fingertips in an instant,” Mr Smith said.
Users can quickly and easily enter ASTARICKS Codes in the same manner as a phone number or short-code and the corresponding Card is seamlessly downloaded and saved to the user’s device.
ASTARICKS Codes can also include brand names and words, for example ‘Pizza’, ‘Taxi’ or ‘Hotel’. The Codes can even contain a combination of numbers and words just like a phone word.
An enhanced mapping solution called ASTARICKS MD displays ASTARICKS Cards on the map and allows users to search, locate and get directions.
Card Owners (businesses) can also choose to have their business advertised for free on ASTARICKS Business Directory.
The system allows Card Owner’s to measure download stats relating to their Cards. ASTARICKS Cards also contain security designed to protect the information in the Card.
“We’ve received a lot of interest. Businesses are already signing up, creating ASTARICKS Cards and taking advantage of the system,” Mr Smith said.
