[prMac.com] Fremont, California - From the developers of the award-winning WorldCard Mobile app for iPhone and Android comes the next wave in mobile Customer Relationship Management. WorldCard HD for iPad - developed by Penpower Technology, a leading developer of business productivity software and intelligent interface technologies - is a powerful business tool that eliminates the need for the manual entry of new contact information. Leveraging the power of Penpower's advanced, and exclusive, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, WorldCard HD allows users to easily scan the business cards of new contacts, alone or in large batches, and forever avoid the embarrassing typos, lost entries, and mass contact confusions that can quickly put a chill on your CRM practices.
Similar to WorldCard Mobile - winner of the 2010 MOBI Award, and previously chosen at Macworld.com as the best business card scanner app for iPhone - WorldCard HD for iPad allows users a much more powerful, effective and efficient method for the ever-so-crucial task of managing contacts for business. Featuring an intelligent and intuitive combination of an easy-to-use interface and a powerful search tool - a search tool that allows required information to be accessed in mere seconds - WorldCard HD is another step in Penpower's enhancement of the relationship between man and machine, and is a must-have for anyone who recognizes the benefit of being able to more effectively manage contacts for business.
WorldCard HD allows users to quickly and easily, using its powerful OCR, enter multiple contacts and their contact information; connect with those contacts on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter with nothing more than a tap of the finger; and, ultimately, create a streamlined CRM method with which business can thrive. Featuring Google Map connectivity, and fully integrated with iCloud and Dropbox - to enhance data exchange and backup - WorldCard HD is much more than a card-scanning app; it is a comprehensive, CRM platform that is truly disruptive in that it can be taken out of the office, and - used anywhere and anytime - foster business in real-time.
"We wanted to take our award-winning WorldCard Mobile app for iPhone and Android, and make it even better as a version for iPad," said Penpower Technology VP, DP Deng. "The iPad is such a unique mobile device, and we wanted to match the award-winning capabilities of WorldCard Mobile with the innovations and features offered by the iPad. To that end, WorldCard HD is an indication that we will always continue to improve, and find new avenues for, our powerful business productivity tools - especially those which are so critical to business operations and CRM. The feedback we have received from users, critics and peers, indicates that our WorldCard offerings are now a part of the CRM vernacular. And WorldCard HD for iPad is simply another powerful step in the right direction for our unique OCR innovations here at Penpower."
WorldCard HD, available at the App Store (Business category) for $14.99 USD, goes beyond business card scanning by offering multiple features for the easy management and organization of contact information. Once contact information is scanned, through WorldCard HD, into a device - each scanned business card is presented as an individual table with standard attributes such as name, company name, and address - the process of finding a specific contact (and contacting them) is easier than it has ever been.
"Well, yes, the beauty of WorldCard HD for iPad is that these powerful CRM solutions, and our innovative OCR technologies, can be applied with the simple tap of a finger," said Deng. "It's a bold new world, indeed. WorldCard Mobile has been a huge success for us - having spent so much time as the number one ranked business app in the App Store - and we feel WorldCard HD will continue to solidify our company as a front-runner, and a pioneer, in the advancement of capturing technologies and mobile CRM solutions."
WorldCard HD - featuring the same dynamic capabilities as its award-winning predecessor, and powered by the same, high-scope OCR technologies - is a modern, mobile innovation for the iPad that no business professional should ever be without.
