“Now it is extremely easy to exchange business cards with your potential partners and customers who already have the Business Card Reader installed on their devices, be that at conferences, workshops or exhibitions,” commented Katya Solntseva, Director of Mobile Products Department at ABBYY. “A face-to-face card transfer or a remote collecting of cards from the air – you can choose what suits you best.”

 

Specifically pre-installed, ‘My business cards’ group is easy to complete with your personal business cards. After being digitized, these contacts are available for wireless sending via the Wi-Fi network. By default, the program is ready to wirelessly receive contacts – a brief notification will inform you about someone ‘on the wire’. By incorporating AllJoyn functionality, users are able to instantaneously and seamlessly connect to others nearby regardless of OS platform or device type. Furthermore, based on the new generation of ABBYY’s OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology for mobile devices, the application ensures higher recognition accuracy for captured e-mails, phone numbers and website addresses.
