Folocard is a fresh approach to in-person business networking, ideal for conferences and meetups.

How it works:

1. Scan a business card (we grab email)
2. Send follow up email (we plug email into a template).
3. Repeat 1 + 2 until you finish your stack.

COMPOSE unlimited email templates for any scenario.
EDIT your draft email before sending by personalizing or contextualizing.

Business card reader apps have been focused on contact management and digital Rolodex. Also, business card scanner apps that offer social networking functionality are limited to the userbase of that particular app. This siloed approach totally misses the point of the business card. A social contract saying: CONTACT ME!

So...we made it very fast and simple to do that.

User testing shows that immediately following up provides a positive impression on new contacts that leads to shorter sales cycles and even repeat meetings at conferences, tradeshows & exhibitions. Go from field MQLs to SQLs faster.

Growth hack your leads pipeline by capturing leads, tracking prospects and engaging customers. By accelerating the business relationship in a streamlined workflow that drives rapid response & RESULTS. A lead gen and networking supertool.

BASIC features:

* FREE: Unlimited Scans. Unlike other apps, we offer a free business card scanner.

* EXTRA FREE: Unlimited Templates. Prepare different email templates for different scenarios. From personal to different business events and context. Example: Real Estate agents prepare templates per property.


* PERSONALIZE: Add the first name dynamically from the scan result: "Hey Steve!"

* IMPORT: Access your photo gallery to scan any image.

* OFFLINE: No WiFI / Cellular reception in a conference, no problem. Enabled Airplane mode? Pull out those business cards to complete your follow-ups before you land. Your email app will queue them. Your next Monday back at the office will be a very different experience.

* SAVE: Automatically add contacts after the follow-up, to your device.

* ATTACHMENTS: Add the scanned business card as an image to the template. Also, you can append TXT files of the OCR (scanned) results, or even embed in the email (helps with search).

* LOCATION: Get context by tagging the GPS location of your scan. You can also embed the exact location into the email body dynamically with a Macro. Aka, we 'met' here...

* ANYONE: LONG PRESS the capture button to launch a simple email field form. This is useful for when the person you met is 'out of business cards'.

WHO is this for? small business owners, salespersons, sale managers, entrepreneurs, deal flow, Meetup / Eventbrite users, business development, executives, sales reps (SDR), self-employed, agents, suppliers, managers, leadgen, customer support, real estate, job interviews & freelancers.

Business card to excel solution using the free and unlimited .csv export function accessible from the history screen. Simply select the follow ups you want and hit the export button. You get the full scan text results as well as some key fields populated along with time / location of the followup for context.

Changed my life!

It has been sometime since a new approach to follow up emails has been introduced.

Business card apps really do well to digitize the stacks of business cards I encounter. But this app takes it one step further.

You don’t just save the contact info of the person you met. But YOU ACTUALLY FOLLOW UP too. This has had a profound effect on my relationship building.

When you engage immediately, it opens a world of options that simply do not present themselves if you do your follow ups at the office on a Monday with an exploding inbox.

More breakfasts, cocktail party invites, secondary quick meetings and especially getting to know people a bit better and FASTER. All this things play into the closing of deals. Especially since this concept of immediate follow ups isn’t common, yet.

There is so many more possibilities to expand upon that I have yet to utilize with this app. Next up is to get my Zapier connected to the office CRM (Salesforce) which is supported!

Keep it up Folocard!

Developer Response ,

This is what we were gunning for. Transforming the follow up email experience.

While developing the app, we have tested it ourselves and we get the 'WOW' response when we fire off a follow up using the offline business card reader in the middle of a busy conference floor. The new contact suddenly gets a notification and checks his email and says: "wait, what?, how did you? Did you just follow up with me right now? Well played!"

There is a dynamic first name macro you can add to your email templates to personalize them. You can get a 'Hey Hakosam!' in the first sentence of your email draft.

Let us know about the Zapier connection. Some people also like to add Zapier connections to their marketing automation software like MailChimp or Marketo etc. This helps to put new leads on email marketing campaigns without much manual work.

Let us know if you need more info and how we can help. Don't be shy to drop us some feedback about feature requests as well.

Great idea !

Developer Response ,

Thank you!

BUMP, CardMunch and the like were all excellent. But simply saving contact information is not the same as acting on it.

Where can we improve?
