ScanBizCards Drops Price and Announces Support for Android Phones

in Business (E)

[] Dade City, Florida - ScanBiz Mobile Solutions is announcing a price reduction of over 60% off its regular price, to $2.99 effective immediately and over the next few days, coinciding with the availability of the recently released Android version of ScanBizCards. Although many of the 27 features of the iPhone versions are not yet available in the Android version, ScanBizCards is already receiving a warm welcome on the Android Market and has been downloaded in excess of 40,000 times since the beginning of March.

ScanBizcards is unlike any other business card reader with features usually reserved for full-blown, expensive enterprise CRM applications. Built specifically for the networked web, ScanBizCards 3.02 boasts new features that turn the iPhone 3Gs into a powerful contact relationship management device. Version 3.02 delivers support for scanning cards in 22 languages: Czech, Danish, English, German, Greek, Finnish, French, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovakian, Spanish, Serbian, Swedish, Turkish, Vietnamese.

Version 3.02 makes ScanBizCards the leader in business card scanning, significantly outdoing competition on all criterias: the most accurate, most features-rich, only scanner with cloud-based backup and web-based card management, and with support for the most languages.

Simply snapping a picture of a business card effortlessly adds its information to contacts, then enable a series of actions to follow-up, connect, forward to colleagues and partners through multiple web and mobile channels. ScanBizCards turns business cards (or any image) into opportunities by putting a powerful mobile contact, social networking and calendar management system in the palm of your hand. ScanBizCards is also the only iPhone scanning application with real-time backup of cards to the cloud as well as a web-based application to manage cards from any browser.

Features include:
* Be Green! Scan and instantly add business card information to contacts for permanent storage or directly to the calendar for follow up with notes for specific actions. Then hand the card back to new contact.
* Follow-up reminders to manage action items for each new business card. ScanBizCards reminders can be merged into the iPhone calendar or with Outlook / iCal on the desktop and even into another person's calendar.
* Customer folders allow storing scanned cards by related groups where they can be easily recalled and reviewed, showing each card with visual cues indicating which cards have been saved to the address book, whether a follow-up reminder is in effect for that card and whether a LinkedIn invite has been sent.
* View contact information and instantly connect on LinkedIn without leaving the app. Meet someone, exchange cards and send a LinkedIn invite before you've been forgotten in your prospect's crowd of new acquaintances.
* Send contact info to a colleague in three formats (text, image, VCF) to instantly share relevant contact information with people who need it. Get credit for making the intro.
* Treat the business card image as an "active canvas." Touch to dial/email/browse the relevant actionable items right from the photo of the card! Great for take-out menus and other image data you don't want in contacts but need to access efficiently.

"ScanBizCards 3.02 effortlessly scans business cards and blends that and other text image information with the live web," said Patrick Questembert, Co-Founder, ScanBiz Mobile Solutions.

"We're far more than just a business card reader. ScanBizCards 3.02 turns images into opportunities by letting you act quickly and more meaningfully on a first encounter and get the most out of your interactions with new people. Too often opportunities of every sort are lost after an initial exchange, either with the passage of time or from information overload. ScanBizCards captures actionable data on the spot, connects you to untapped networks and holds your feet to the fire for deliverables to ensure your success. I am delighted to finally add the support for cards in 22 languages which our customers have been asking for."
