Business Card Scanning on iOS

We've had quite a few users asking if we could integrate our iOS and Android CRM with other business card scanning apps. We're going to do one better and build a business card scanner right into our CRM apps.

 

JULY UPDATE: We're close...really close to having a version of business card scanner for iOS and a brand new update for Android. We need people to try out this new feature and make sure it's just right before we release it to the App Store / Play Store. If you'd be interested in getting an early peek you can sign up here.

Hi, 

 

Thank you for the update, is the same feature available for iOS?

 Hi Roisinkirby,

how are plans for the iPhone app? Will it be able to scan business cards as well in the future - and if so, when?

I have HubSpot currently automatically adding any contacts I email to my contacts in the CRM. I'd also like to scan (using the in app feature listed in this thread) the stack of business cards collected on my desk to add any missing information (phone numbers, titles, etc). Right now this tool always creates a duplicate contact, which I later have to merge with my previously exisitng contact. I'd like to be able to have a photo of the business card scanned attached to the contact record so that it can be referenced later (typos, logos, etc). Is there a way to do this?

 Will this scanner feature be added to the iOS app soon too?

Hi @roisinkirby,

 

I don't think the status of this feature should be delivered as it only exist in the Andoir app and not yet on iOS.

Would also be nice to get some feedback as to whether this will appear on iOS?

 

Thanks!

Agree with the above, we really need this in the iOS App before it's delivered

Hey all - reopening this as we are seeing some really good conversations around this on iOS as well. We delivered an early version of Business Card scanning on Android and we would like to hear from everyone on bringing this to iOS 👏

I have a major issue with the apple crm app, I use card cam to scan business cards which adds them to my iphone.  then using the hubspot crm app I can importn them into hubspot one at a time.  however there is no easy way to find the contact to import.  I litterally have to scroll through up to 10,000 contacts to pick the one contact that I want to import.  Any help with this import issue?  I don't see how to do a card scan directly on the iphone hubspot app?  Thank you.
