So today I found a smart phone application that I think would be a great asset to real estate agents and brokers. The app is called Card Munch. It is a free, camera-integrated app that allows you to take a picture of business cards that you want to enter into your contacts.
Every business card you submit is transcribed, edited and reviewed by multiple workers to guarantee accuracy; the workers even crop the company logos from business cards! All your contacts are fully searchable, whether by name, address, or even notes. This app will keep a copy of the cards for you to flip through on your phone and it will even sync to your contacts, so you never have to worry about losing information again.
Another benefit offered by this handy little app is that you can connect to your newly added contact via LinkedIN with one tap of the screen. Unfortunately this app is only available for iPhone users right now, but the company behind the magic boasts that is is coming soon to Blackberry!
