Australian Company Develops First Fully Interactive, Updatable & Secure Digital Business Card System
Online PR News – 28-May-2014 – Devonport – DEVONPORT, AUSTRALIA April 1, 2014 - Australian software company ASTARICKS PTY LTD has developed the world's first fully interactive, updatable & secure digital business card system, taking networking, promotion & customer engagement to a whole new level.
ASTARICKS CEO & founder Allen Smith said it was essentially turning the traditional business card into a powerful sales & marketing tool to enable users to quickly find, view, pre-qualify & connect with a business or a business person.
``It means businesses & business people can save significant time & money when it comes to increasing brand awareness & customer engagement,' Mr Smith said.
The core of the ASTARICKS System are ASTARICKS Cards which have a richly formatted design & promote businesses & business people in a professional & engaging way. These digital business cards allow for full contact details, 10 HD pictures, logo, company slogan, website links, social connectors, 'About Us' information, operating hours, map, directions, specials, promotions & more all within the card.
ASTARICKS comes with a suite of products & services to allow users to seamlessly save, sort, view & share the cards with ease and can be used as a lead retrieval system, contact management system, CRM & an advertising system.
Card owners can update information or images in their cards & other people with those cards will receive the updated information on their device.
``ASTARICKS keeps information up-to-date.' he said.
``No business or business professional wants to have out-of-date contact details, nor do they want their brand, logo & corporate identity reduced to a simple line of black & white text in a contact address book. However, this happens every day, all over the world. ASTARICKS overcomes this problem & many others whilst bringing the traditional business card into the digital world & giving it a new lease of life.'
Every ASTARICKS Card works using its own unique QR Code & ASTARICKS Code. ASTARICKS Codes are number-based codes that can include the phone number of the card owner or number & word combinations. Users simply enter the ASTARICKS Code into the easy-to-use keypad in the ASTARICKS app & the corresponding ASTARICKS Card is seamlessly downloaded, saved & synced to the user's devices.
Other features include security designed to protect card information as well as free listing of cards on ASTARICKS Business Directory & ASTARICKS MD, an enhanced mapping solution which displays ASTARICKS Cards on the map & allows users to search, locate & get directions.
``ASTARICKS is already proving it has global appeal & we're excited about the opportunities this presents for businesses & professionals in promoting, networking, engaging & connecting seamlessly throughout the world all within one system." Mr Smith said.
