Introduction

Business cards have been the standard way for individuals to easily share basic information with someone in a quick and simple way. In our digital world however, business cards can be a hassle to keep track of when you need to quickly access names and contact information. With the help of Byron Structured tasks, we can make the process of digitizing and organizing your business cards as simple as uploading an image. By following these simple steps, we can pull the data you specify from these business cards and push this data into thousands of different tools or services that you use on a normal basis. Here is how you can get started integrating Byron into your workflow.
