Scanning apps sometimes have trouble recognizing the boundaries of a business card when the background is very similar to the card itself. In times like these you can use your business planner or anything else that is high contrast as a background. With Zappoint, even your hand will do.
This quick video from our labs (aka coffee room) shows you how to avoid shadows when scanning in your business cards. This is helpful for Zappoint or for any other business card scanning app you might be using (of course we believe Zappoint is the best and you should be using it). The problem with shadows is that they cause problems with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) which means that your business card scanning app will make mistakes when translating the image it captur
Location: Zappoint Labs, also known as our coffee break room. Mission: We had a few minutes and decided to see how many business cards we can scan and save into Zappoint in one minute. Results: We only had 12 cards handy and we scanned them in, in about 53 seconds. It's possible we could get 2 or even three more cards (we'll try again soon). #tips #scan #fast #ocr
