ABBYY today announced that the ABBYY Business Card Reader app for Android can now be integrated with Salesforce. This way, contacts can be transferred directly from scanned business cards to Salesforce CRM.

The release of this new feature takes place at the same time as the tenth anniversary of the launch of the company’s first mobile app, Business Card Reader for Symbian. ABBYY claims that it will continue to use this experience and knowledge in mobile to support companies and individuals. It also provides seamless experiences for removing barriers and improving productivity.

Making connections

ABBYY Business Card Reader for Android and iOS with Salesforce integration aims to connect business professionals with customers, while freeing them from routine tasks. The app retrieves the contact information from a business card and stores that information as a mobile contact. The app then immediately exports the goods to the Salesforce CRM system.

According to Bruce Orcutt, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing at ABBYY, the Business Card Reader is a perfect companion for sales, legal, insurance, service and marketing professionals on the move. Orcutt says that they can save time, are more productive and that every business professional is a lot more productive as a result.

Ten years old

The ABBYY Business Card Reader was launched in 2009 for Nokia phones running on Symbian. It changed the way people store and manage their business contacts. This later led to the Business Card Reader, which was launched today and is available for Android and iOS.

The Business Card Reader scans business cards, extracts the data from them and stores the information between the contacts in a smartphone. The app also allows users to connect to new social media contacts and can be synchronized with the Apple Watch app and a web version of the app.
