Evernote And LinkedIn Partner To Digitize Business Cards

Evernote And LinkedIn Partner To Digitize Business Cards

Organize your address book with the help of Evernote's scanning feature.

Whether they’re saved in a retro Rolodex or stacked in a desk drawer, we all have business cards that we just don’t know where to place. If you don’t use the card right away, you may not remember where you met its owner or why you wanted their contact information in the first place. While LinkedIn has quickly become the preferred way to connect with other professionals, users don’t tend to exchange their profile URLs at networking events.

In 2011, LinkedIn purchased CardMunch, an app that allowed people to scan and save business card details. However, LinkedIn users didn’t flock to the service and therefore LinkedIn has instead partnered with Evernote, the popular web service designed for note taking and archiving. Because Evernote has a large community of users and has employed business card scanning since last year, the reasons for the partnership are obvious. LinkedIn gets an added component for professional networking, and Evernote gets access to LinkedIn’s 300 million members.

LinkedIn members can link their accounts to Evernote immediately. Using the Evernote app, they can scan business cards and connect directly with the person’s LinkedIn profile. This will allow access to pictures, job titles, and company details, and users will have the option to share contact information with each other. In addition, after scanning a card, users can geo-tag the location where they received the card, so they never forget where they met the contact, as well as write notes to accompany each entry.

Check out the video below to see Evernote’s scanning in action.
