Business Cards in a Wed 2.0 World

A company called DUBMeNow has invented the #1 way of the future to exchange contact information, via Mobile Phones. The phone application called DUB receives 500 new user downloads a day on good days and allows Blackberry, iPhone, Windows Mobile, and Android cell phone users to quickly exchange information. The business cards of the past will be a long for years to come, but digital contact information exchange is what excites most tech savvy individuals.

Likewise LinkedIn, the business social network, has developed a phone application for the iPhone and the Palm which works in a similar way to DUB. The application should be available to Blackberry users soon. The advantage of the LinkedIn application is most business professionals that are networking already have a LinkedIn account. And there’s no need to update the contact information in the future when people change jobs because the account owners update their own details.

SnaBiz – iPhone Business Card Application

If you have a lot of business cards or receive a lot of business cards weekly, that are not entered into an online contact database, your new iPhone has the ability to convert those business cards to iPhone contacts within minutes. SnaBiz is an iPhone application that you can purchase that will take a picture of any business card an recognize the text on the card. You select the fields that match the text recognized and everything is stored for you to sort, search, and contact later.

Snabiz utilizes the Tesseract OCR engine to recognize the text on your cards. This OCR recognition software is considered the most accurate available by many. The application is easy to use and takes photos of the cards with the built in iPhone camera. An additional lens for magnification might be helpful. Taking a photo is a three second process and recognizing the text on the card takes another 15 seconds. The text field assignment can be completed in as few as a 2 minutes depending on how quickly you can designate the destination of the text recognized.
