The next step: Digital business cards from Spreadly

Our business card scanner makes it easy to enter contact details from paper business cards. But that's just the first step: with Spreadly's digital business card, you can transfer your contact details digitally and contactless. Using the digital business card is completely free of charge. You can store your digital profile on an NFC card, which is used to transfer your data contactlessly using Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. You can customize the carrier card by choosing the material (PVC, bamboo or metal), design, lettering and logos according to your wishes. The design is particularly easy using our business card configurator.
The strengths of Spreadly's digital business card are:
Individual designs and layouts
Add to Apple Wallet / Google Wallet
Lead capture via contact form and CRM synchronization
Simple team management and standardized templates
Connect a HRIS for automatic data imports
Integration with CRM, scheduling tools, social media and many more
Connect your NFC business card for free
No app required
GDPR-compliant, developed in Germany and TLS-encrypted

5 suppliers of business card scanners

There are numerous providers of business card scanners. However, the scanner apps sometimes differ significantly in their range of functions and price.


snapADDY is a lead generation software that takes contacts from websites or email signatures and digitizes business cards by scanning them. To do this, either the QR code of the business card can be scanned or a photo of the card can be taken. Errors made when entering data can be corrected directly. The contact data can be exported to the address book as well as to Excel or a CRM system. The light version is free, but limited to 25 scans per day.


The CamCard app reads contact data from photographed business cards that are already stored in the photo album or are taken in the app. Unfortunately, there is no integrated reader for reading QR codes. In addition, the app sometimes takes a while to read the data. The read data can either be saved in the address book or, in the premium version, in Excel or Salesforce.

Business Card Reader (ABBY)

The Business Card Reader from ABBY digitizes photos of business cards. The fact that the photos have to be manually cropped to fit the outline of the business card is somewhat time-consuming. Only ten scans are included in the Lite version. Export is only possible to the contact book or Excel. Unfortunately, there is no connection to CRM systems.


BizConnect enables the scanning of contact information on business cards via photo or QR code. When scanning, the date and location are automatically saved, making it easier for you to assign where the contact took place later. In the Enterprise version of the app, multiple team members can access the contacts. Export interfaces are available for Excel, certain CRM systems, Outlook, PDF and Zapier. However, the export function is limited to 50 scans per day in the free version.


The Lite version of the WorldCard app can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple and Play Store. However, the scanned data can only be saved in the address book of the smartphone or in the Google address book. Unfortunately, it is not possible to export data to Excel or CRM systems. This function is also not included in the paid version.
