Scan business cards

Do you often exchange business cards during business meetings? With snapADDY CardScanner for iOS and Android, you can get the contact details of business cards into your CRM system with a single scan and without any typing. This way, you save a lot of time in follow-up or you can get productive during a boring presentation! A whole stack of business cards can be scanned and exported to the CRM system quickly and efficiently.

Step 1

Download snapADDY CardScanner app

Download the snapADDY CardScanner from the Play Store (Android) or the AppStore (iOS). Once installed, open the app and log in with your credentials. If you later want to transfer the contacts of your business cards directly into the CRM system and not only into the phone book, then you need to initially establish the connection in the settings.

Step 2

Scan business cards after the meeting

At trade shows or while visiting your customers, you often receive the business card of the person you are talking to. This contact data should now be captured digitally. For this purpose, press the + symbol in the app and select the camera to start the scan. If you have a pre-captured photo or want to use a QR code with the corresponding contact data, you have the possibility to do this as well. The contact data on the business card will now be identified and processed. As soon as this is done, you will receive a short confirmation message. You are then ready to scan the next business card!

Step 3

View the results of the business card scan

When you have scanned enough business cards or when the trade show is over and you are back at work, you can review the data of the scanned business cards before sending them to different export formats.

Note: If you want to skip this & the following steps, turn on automatic export in the General settings. From now on, the export will then be done automatically to the default destination you set after scanning!

Step 4

Direct export of the scanned business cards to the CRM

In the last step, you can have the captured data automatically created as a lead or contact in your CRM. You just need to configure the connection to your CRM once in the settings.
