We use business cards to store contact information of business affiliates, interests and leads. The past few years have seen a change in this trend with the advent of Excel, Google Contacts and other cloud based solutions to store contact information, where we are increasingly prefering to store contacts in digital format. The advantages are plenty – reliable storage, easy to use, digitally searchable functionalities.
Business cards are still distributed in abundance and technology now allows us to take a picture or scan business cards to directly extract contact information in a structured format using OCR. Applications which do this extract information of contacts from business cards and store it to digital formats in excel spreadsheets, databases and softwares of choice like Hubspot, Salesforce etc.
Nanonets provides functionalities to scan business cards to excel or google contacts seamlessly. It extracts contact information fields from scanned images of business cards using OCR technology with pinpoint accuracy.
