Ever been on a business trip and accidentally left your stack of business cards in the office? Or tried in vain to quickly generate a QR code for all of the contact data needed for a presentation? That’s not only annoying, but avoidable. The vCard in the Secure Contacts app from Provectus provides a solution. The digital business card is flexible and effective—and always available as a QR code.
And how does the vCard work?
The traditional paper-based business card has become obsolete and is being replaced by its digital successor. With the vCard in the Secure Contacts app, all contact data is transferred straight from the cloud and stored digitally. It’s a file in VCF format that includes information about you and your company and can be processed by a variety of applications (e.g., email programs, organizers, and calendars). The vCard is thus a convenient way to send your business-related information online.
In addition, a QR code is generated automatically. You can also use this code to give your counterpart access to your contact details. It’s basically not all that different from exchanging paper-based business cards: You open the QR code on your smartphone so your counterpart can scan it with their smartphone and save your contact data in their address book.
Always up to date
Unlike their printed counterparts, all vCard content can be customized as needed for recipients and current situations, and not only the name and address, but also job titles and links can be exchanged within seconds.All current contact data is collected digitally and always ready to hand in one place. And while conventional paper-based cards tend to disappear into nirvana, the smartphone is more often than not a faithful companion.
But the possibilities of digital business cards are even more wide-ranging. They are not gaining in popularity without reason, as they deliver a wide range of benefits. In addition to increased flexibility, efficiency, and new applications, they also make a contribution to environmental protection.
