Will COVID-19 Change The Way We Share Business Cards?
It’s fair to say that the disaster of the Coronavirus pandemic will change the way we all live our lives, at home and at work. We are becoming very conscious of spreading germs and keeping a safe social distance from each other, more than ever, so the less physical contact we have with people, the better. But how do we keep a social distance and remove any physical contact when it comes to exchanging business cards?
Out with the paper, in with the digital
In the old days, business cards were once a reliable, professionally printed piece of card which had contact information on it where people could carry and share with people in business. Times have changed, we live in a digital world and this pandemic has made even more of a point that we should be managing and sharing business information digitally as well.
If you haven’t already made the transition from managing business cards from the conventional paper business cards to the slick way of managing your cards digitally, why not? Many people believe they are outdated, inconvenient, expensive, and environmentally unfriendly. They also take time and money to design the business cards as well. We couldn’t agree more, which is why we built Contapp to be the solution to all of these problems.
If your colleagues are going to manually type the information into their computer, why would you not send it to them electronically in the first place? It makes sense in today’s world to be digitally connected with so many leading softwares now being integrated into today’s business tools.
Being Digitally Connected
If this pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that being digitally connected is vital if you want to keep in touch with friends, family, colleagues and customers. Video meeting company, Zoom, is the perfect example. Their users have grown from 10 million to over 200 million in 3 months which is a trend that we were all expecting as more people continued to work remotely.
We are all looking for the next business tool which will help the way we work in business and in a time of uncertainty, people are looking for the best free business tool mobile apps. There are many business tools available with a host of different integrations with other leading platforms, but very few allow you to do this with business cards.
We’ve seen Contapp downloads increase a huge amount since COVID-19 broke out, which shows that people are looking for ways to manage and use their business cards digitally. It makes sense, you can still use all your business cards, but by downloading Contapp, you can manage them conveniently, share them hygienically and contact people via the app. With no physical contact at any point.
Contactlessly Share & Manage Business Cards
Bearing in mind all the social distancing and hygiene fears, how can we still exchange business cards effectively? Scrap the idea of paper business cards as they are germ ridden when they are passed from one person to another, but they are also a massive pain to manage and use. Not to mention that by using less paper where we can, it will help us to save the planet whilst adding more convenience to users.
There has been a huge movement to be contactless, either by payments or sharing information. You can do this with business cards as well and the only way you can do this is by downloading Contapp for free on iOS & Android.
You can transform your collection of paper business cards within seconds with the in-built card scanning feature and it will create individual digital business cards, saved directly to your library on the app. With a simple swipe, you can share your business cards digitally and have the information saved to your smartphone immediately. It’s as simple as scan, save and share.
