Kinect Business Cards 6
What is Kinect Card?
NFC business cards, also known as contactless business cards, are a modern alternative to traditional paper business cards. NFC stands for Near Field Communication, which is a wireless communication technology that allows two devices to exchange data when they are in close proximity to each other, typically within a few centimeters.
Kinect business cards are embedded with a small NFC chip, which can be scanned by NFC-enabled smartphones or other compatible devices. When a person taps or brings their device close to the Kinect business card, it triggers an action, such as opening a website, this site is your landing page, containing your contact information, from there, the recipient can simply download your up to date details. You can update your details at any time with our Mobile App, or the Kinect Enterprise system.
What are the benefits of having an NFC business card?
Having a Kinect business card offers several benefits that can enhance your networking and business interactions. Here are some key advantages:
Convenience and Ease of Sharing: Kinect business cards provide a seamless and hassle-free way to share your contact information and other digital content. Recipients can simply tap their NFC-enabled device or scan the QR code to access your details instantly, eliminating the need for manual input or physical card exchanges.
Interactive and Engaging: With NFC technology, you can make your business card interactive and engaging. By linking your card to your website, address, social media profiles, or other digital content, you can provide recipients with a rich and dynamic experience, allowing them to explore your work, products, or services more easily.
Professional Impression: NFC business cards showcase your tech-savviness and forward-thinking approach. By leveraging modern technology, you demonstrate that you stay up-to-date with digital trends, which can leave a positive and lasting impression on potential clients, partners, or employers.

Tracking and Analytics: Kinect business card solutions offer tracking and analytics features. You can gain insights into how many times your card has been scanned, which actions were performed, and other valuable data. This information can help you evaluate the effectiveness of your networking efforts and adjust your strategies accordingly.
Overall, NFC business cards offer convenience, interactivity, and a modern approach to networking, allowing you to stand out from the crowd and make a memorable impression on potential contacts.
Does the recipient need the app or Kinect Enterprise software?
The software provided with your Kinect business cards allows you to manage your contact details conveniently. When sharing your card with someone, the recipient only needs an NFC-compatible device or a device equipped with a camera to scan the QR code on the card.
By scanning the QR code or tapping the NFC chip, the recipient can easily access your contact information. This eliminates the need for physical card exchanges and enables a seamless digital interaction between you and the recipient.
Whether the recipient's device supports NFC or relies on scanning QR codes, they can effortlessly retrieve your details and engage with your digital presence, making it a hassle-free and contactless way to share information in today's digital age.

Can my card generate leads?
For Kinect Card App users, your landing page includes an "enquiry" button that enables recipients to contact you as a new lead. When someone uses this button, we send the lead information to your provided email address.
For our Enterprise customers, we offer two lead generation options:
The "Connect" Feature: The "Connect" feature allows individuals to exchange details directly from your landing page. Once a connection is made, we send an email notification to both the lead and the card owner, informing them of the connection. The email includes a contact file for the relevant parties to download. Additionally, this lead is logged in your dashboard for easy reference and management.
Custom Forms: With our custom form feature, you can redirect the "Connect" feature to a form of your own. This is particularly useful for integrating leads with your CRM system. By creating a form that integrates with your third-party apps, any leads generated through the "Connect" feature will be directed to the custom form for completion.
