Are you fed up with stacks of business cards cluttering your desk?
- a constant reminder that you really must get organised.
I use a card scanner to add new contacts into my ACT! database. At a recent Suffolk Business Exhibition where I was exhibiting as a Sage Business Partner, my aim was to reveal how ACT! and a card scanner could help companies manage their new leads effortlessly.
At the end of the day I had an extra 75 new businesses in my ACT! database. But it’s not just collecting names, it’s about building relationships with your prospects and for that I use ACT! E-marketing from Swiftpage, another essential business tool.
I send attractive HTML emails to all my new contacts using Swiftpage. I’ve also created Drip Marketing campaigns so all I need to do is add business contacts to the relevant campaigns.

New Blackberry App
I was searching the crackberry site for new apps for my Blackberry when I discovered the business card reader. It works like this, you take a picture of the business card with your Blackberry and the card information is scanned into your Blackberry contacts.
Another time saving device or another layer of complexity? What do you think?
