What Eight has in store for you:
- Organize business cards & professional networks:
Users often have a large stack of disorganized visiting cards & biz cards making them difficult to use and refer to. Now using your mobile cam, cards will be instantly digitized into an e visiting card, and you will be able to see full information of the card on the app. Additionally, once digitized, Eight lets users add notes & tags on profiles so they can manage contacts & organize their business & professional network efficiently.
- Manual input to ensure superior accuracy:
Eight uses a combination of OCR technology & human resources to digitize business cards from a scanned image into a digital Eight profile. After users scan their biz cards, Eight uses OCR technology to instantly read the data on the visiting cards, which is then manually checked & corrected by our team, ensuring 99.9% accuracy even for the most hard-to-read cards.
- Easy search feature to find & reach contacts from within the app:
This is not your regular visiting cards scanner or digital business card holder. It allows users to manage contacts & contact them via email or phone, helping them unlock new business & career opportunities.
- Free to use basic app with an option to buy premium features:
The standard version of the app is free to use and has all the essential functions that make Eight a powerful business solution. Users can purchase Eight Premium for additional benefits including an ability to export their data (e.g. phonebook sync). It not only helps users to convert their visiting cards & biz cards into e business cards using OCR but also lets them export their e business card data to their devices.

Ratings and Reviews
Works very well
Not recommended at all
Bad customer support. Bad (low) data accuracy.
They don't care about users. Don't waste your time, energy, money. Not worth it.
The app crushes always when I try to take a pic of name cards. It’s free and that’s good, but very unstable.
