Zoho Challenges LinkedIn and Evernote With Business Card Scanner App
Enterprise CRM company Zoho has launched a new Card Scanner application for iOS. Users can take a photo of their business card and have the data stored in Zoho’s CRM as a new contact. The app can scan business cards in English, French, German, and Spanish. The company is planning on launching a Card Scanner app for Android soon too.
Zoho created the app with plans to help sales people save time on entering data manually. If the business card contains a Twitter handle, it will pull a photo from the user’s profile. The contact can be exported in various ways after it is added to the CRM database. The data is synced to Zoho’s CRM back-end according to Zoho Evangelist Raju Vegesna in an e-mail interview with TechCrunch. Zoho believes that tightly integrating this app into the Zoho CRM service is what makes this app unique.
