Card2Contact’s secret weapon: Real people

Business cards are a bit like pennies – we all accumulate them, then don’t quite know what to do with them.

A Waterloo company, Card2Contact, has devised an app that deploys real, live humans to solve this problem for BlackBerry users.
It works like this: When you take a picture of the card with your BlackBerry and upload it through the app, a manual transcription team receives the image, enters the data and sends it back to the app on your device.
At that point, you can view the information and e-mail the new contact directly from the app. Each contact can also be easily saved to the device’s BlackBerry contacts folder.
Card2Contact founder Madhu Kesavan said his app’s use of actual humans to transcribe business card data makes it far superior to those that rely on optical character recognition (OCR).
“The problem with OCR is that it behaves differently for different fonts and type sizes,” Kesavan said. “We have real people typing in the contacts, which gives us 100-per-cent accuracy.”
Turnaround time for a new contact is currently three hours maximum, but will soon be 30 minutes, Kesavan said.
The app can be downloaded free from BlackBerry App World, which includes two complimentary credits. Further credits can then be purchased (15 for $4.99; 35 for $9.99; 75 for $19.99).

Analysis

Some find it challenging to effectively translate an idea into a vision – and we get that. At W2S we do a complete business analysis for every project and have our development team involved from the start. We utilize design tools and wireframes to help Customers see their idea turning into reality as development starts to take place.

Adopt Agility

We use Agile Development on all projects to quickly make adjustments as the development begins to mature. In most cases, we can identify ways to improve behaviour and performance along the way, which is a win for our team and yours. We are constantly looking for ways to streamline functionality and UI and usually identify these on the fly. The Agile Development also leaves great flexibility for new version releases down the road which is a natural progression for any project.

Integrate Testing

Testing achieves the best results when it is done proactively as part of a development plan. We test all our development on devices with data integration to replicate a real-life scenario. The goal of testing is to ensure that any launch is as smooth as possible. We like to use secure Beta testers to validate development progress and results.

During all testing we monitor analytics and track requirements to ensure the project is running as efficiently and accurately as possible. Testing always continues after deployment and data will be continually shared with the product owner.

Evaluate & Analytics

As a Mobility Center of Excellence (MCoE), we work with our Clients to help educate the importance of analyzing performance data. Once a product is live it is important to understand how your Customers are using it, and what that means for you. Our analytics help identify product likes and dislikes, and when paired with our Agile Development approach, allow you to replace/refresh underutilized features with more valuable ones.
