LinkedIn partners with Evernote for business card scanning

Last updated:

LinkedIn and Evernote have announced a new partnership  where LinkedIn will scrap its business card scanning app on July 14, in favour of Evernote’s updated Business Card Camera, a premium Evernote feature currently available for iOS and coming soon to Android.

The partnership allows Evernote to build richer contact notes for its Premium users by accessing LinkedIn’s database to provide photos and LinkedIn profile connections in addition to the contact info scanned from the card. Users don’t have to be connected to their business contact on LinkedIn to get the additional information, but they will have to connect their LinkedIn account to Evernote. After scanning the card, users will have the option to connect with their contact on LinkedIn, share their own contact information, or save the new contact’s info in their mobile address book. Evernote says the scanning and recognition process, as wells as the LinkedIn integration, happens automatically and mechanically, without any human eyes looking at your contact data.

Evernote users can receive a free year of the Premium business card scanning feature simply by connecting their accounts to LinkedIn. CardMunch users also have a few options. They can move all their CardMunch contacts to Evernote and receive an additional second year of free access to the feature, or request a download of their CardMunch info if they aren’t Evernote users.

The Evernote Business Card Camera is available now in Evernote for iPhone and iPad. This feature is coming soon to Evernote for Android. Business card scanning features are also available in Evernote for Mac and Evernote for Windows Desktop when using the ScanSnap Evernote Edition Scanner.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
