Neil: What inspired you to develop smart business cards and how did you envision them transforming traditional networking practices?

Pieter: The inspiration behind developing smart business cards came from the realization that traditional paper business cards were becoming outdated and unsustainable. I envisioned a solution that would seamlessly blend technology with networking, enhancing the way professionals connect and exchange information. I saw smart business cards as a means to transform networking practices by offering a dynamic and efficient way to share contact information, engage in meaningful conversations, and instantly capture leads. The goal was to create a tool that not only simplifies networking but also aligns with modern preferences and values, ultimately driving more productive interactions.

Our clients consistently report improved engagement, enhanced lead management, and a higher return on investment from their networking efforts using Mobilocard.
