CloudContacts officially announces its launch after a successful year since its soft launch; and many happy customers have discovered the freedom and value of CloudContacts

NEW YORK, September 3, 2009 - After nearly a year since its soft launch, CloudContacts officially announces the commercial availability of its CloudContacts service that offers great value by helping people gain control over the many business cards they collect at meetings, networking events, parties and elsewhere. CloudContacts puts an end to all those stacks and piles of business cards that tend to accumulate over time and become useless. CloudContacts helps people bring those contacts to life for enhanced networking and improved business opportunities.

"I've officially thrown away my business card scanner in favor of CloudContacts. This service saved me hours, if not days, of work and countless moments of aggravation. I highly recommend CloudContacts at every networking event and conference I attend where I see people holding stacks of business cards," said Adam Hirsch, COO at Mashable.

CloudContacts is a simple, yet powerful, business card service that processes business cards and makes the contact information from them accessible from anywhere at anytime. Customers can access the information via any Web browser and can integrate the contacts into their existing CRM or email systems such as Salesforce.com, Microsoft Outlook, Exchange, Gmail and Yahoo Mail. It also enables people to export the contacts to popular Web applications and social networks such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Plaxo, Twitter, and others.

Robert Scoble, blogger at Scobleizer and Building43 recently said, "The business card scanning service I use is CloudContacts - freaking awesome service. It joins cards to social networks."

If you find yourself going from event to event and never quite getting a handle on all those business cards that you accumulate, you might want to give CloudContacts a try and stop missing out on potential business that you may be losing from letting those cards collect dust.

How It Works
There are two ways to use the service, by postal mail, where you mail in your business cards for processing (cards can be returned after processing). Pricing for the postal mail option starts at $29.95 for up to 100 cards.

The other option is by email, where you take pictures of business cards using a mobile phone or digital camera and then email the pictures to CloudContacts for processing. Pricing for the email option starts at $4.95 a month for 20 cards per month or $49.95 for the year for 20 cards a month, which gives you two months free.
