Bric APP for IOS – Releasing shortly

            The much-awaited business card scanner APP for 2018

   Bric business card scanner for IOS is finally completing closed beta testing and should be available on the APP store by mid-February. A big thanks to all our early subscribers and customers who paid in advance for the patience.

What to expect in the first version :

   The business card scanner will work slightly different from the Android version, we have done away with the OCR option as we found no value in that as all our active Android users use the transcription option. The card scanner will hence have a single camera interface to capture pictures.

   The business card organizer feature helps sort all the contacts according to name, company or recent scans and helps to sync data to the Iphone address book and Google contacts. Scanning business cards to Salesforce and Office 365 will be available in the next version.

  You can also export business cards as excel either from the mobile APP or the web dashboard as CSV or Xls files, this is an easy fix to upload cards to other CRM or contact folders.

  Users can use the notes option to capture important information about the cardholder and also use this as a tag to search contacts.

  The IOS APP is also backed with a web interface and the scanned business cards can be accessed from both the APP & the web interface.

  The other options like Call / SMS / Email from the APP, bulk export & sync options are all part of this release. The scanned business cards can be shared with colleagues & friends as url / VCF files through SMS & Email.

Why Bric APP for IOS?

   If you are looking for a business card scanner that has an accuracy of  ~ 99%, fast scanning and transcription charges as low as 7 ¢ per card, then look no further than Bric APP. All you need to do is scan business cards continuously till you exhaust your stack and forget about it. The scanned business cards will get accurately transcribed and updated back to the contact folders with a cloud back up.

All About Bric APP

Owing to numerous queries on what we do and how different are from the rest of the Business card scanner APPS, Card readers etc, we are putting together everything in a blog

Card scanning & Accuracy :

The most important aspect of a business card scanner is accuracy, which an OCR ( optical character recognition scanner ) can never be, which means each card has to be checked by the user & edited wherever required. Imagine a scenario where you return back from a trade fair with 250 cards… Nightmare? 


Bric uses a combination OCR, AI & human intervention to turn out 99% accuracy in data capture. Hence it makes the process faster than a pure play transcription service with the same accuracy.

The service is competitively priced at a price range of 6 ¢ to 12 ¢ per card depending on the subscription which is almost 1/3 rd the price of the Industry average. Some of the vintage players charge around 30 ¢ per card.

Data Export & Sync :

The next important use case for a business card scanner App is to get the scanned data onto other folders. Bric APP syncs the data to Phone book, Google Contacts, MS Outlook,  Salesforce and soon into other CRM like Hubspot, Zoho, freshsales, Zapier and so on. The data can also be exported as a CSV or XLS file and updated to other software.

The Important differentiator here is, there is no cap on no of exports syncs per day/week etc like most Scanning APPS. It’s unlimited and has a simple interface to select & push multiple cards to multiple folders.

Sharing Cards :

Saved cards can be easily shared with colleagues APP to APP, APP to Mobile or APP to Email. The sharing does not require the recipient to have the APP, it can just be shared as a URL / VCF file through SMS or email. The contacts can directly sync into their contact folder.

Web account :

Bric APP also has a web interface from where scanned cards can be viewed, downloaded as CSV / XLS files. The upcoming features are integrations to other CRM from the web, data edits and uploading image files for transcription. A web interface gives a larger screen interface to engage with the data.

Sharing Personal Cards :

While this is still not an evolved feature in Bric APP and there is a lot of work to go into this like creating a personal card etc, Bric APP still enables users to scan their cards and share it as a URL / VCF file, similar to how contacts can be shared. It updates everyone as and when the card is updated

Bric APP has three versions, a freemiumPro & an enterprise version, whereby the first two are for individuals and the third is best suited for corporates.

Bric API – Business card scanner API

Pass card images and get accurate results in Json

Most CRM / ERP software requires inputting customer/vendor details into the software and a major source of this data are business cards. Anything that involves manual input is a pain and in turn, results in lesser data entering the system and potential opportunity losses on account of that.

The CRM software in turn services lesser data resulting in a possible revenue loss for the provider. The solution to this would be to provide a feature to scan business card data directly into the CRM or ERP software, however, the provider may not have the bandwidth or feasibility to build a card scanner just for this functionality and here is where Bric API helps

Bric API is a simple yet powerful card scanner API to pass images of business cards and receive accurately transcribed data in JSON format. Bric differs from other card scanner APIs’ by using a combination of back-end OCR & human transcription to return accurate data at a reasonably fast turnaround time.As part of the service offering, Bric will not record or store any of the client data that is transcribed on its server and data is erased once it is returned back.

Bric API is ideal for CRM / ERP / in-house customised CRM that has a need to extract business card data onto its system. The client has to ensure there is an interface either to capture images from the device camera or pass scanned images from any other source and Bric will do the rest.
