Hubspot Business Card Scanner

SOLVE

Greetings All,

I just came back from a show and I have many cards to scan.  I installed the Hubspot app and tried out the Business Card Scanner.  It is a lot of work to scan cards.  I was hoping there would be some intelligence that made it easier than just typing in the data.

 

Beyond that, I have three questions:

 

1) Why am I not prompted for an event so that I know where I met the person?

2) Why is the address information not imported?  The location of the people that I meet with is very important.

3) Why do I have to manually determine on each scan what I am scanning by moving four dots around (EVERY TIME).

 

It is kind of a sucky app.  Sorry.

 

I am open to hearing about commercial alternatives to this rather awful app.

 

Thanks!!

Hi @PEM,

 

There is already a thread where users are requesting improvements to the business card scanner: Business Card Scanner - automate address fill

 

I'd recommend upvoting and commenting with your feedback. The product team reviews this based on demand and popularity.

 

Until then, you can check out the HubSpot app marketplace for alternatives. There are quite a few: https://ecosystem.hubspot.com/marketplace/apps/all-categories?eco_search=business%20card

 

Hope this helps!
