“By interconnecting our core features; video, sharing, contact management, storage, reconnecting, in a way where they can operate independently or dependently of one another within a single system framework. The (2nd Gen) Switchit app provides professionals with a new standard of networking while redefining the role paper business cards serve in the digital age,” said Daafram Campbell, CEO, co-founder of Switchit. “There are numerous digital business card apps in the market but what makes Switchit unique is our continued embrace of video content in the actual card. The future of marketing is shifting towards private messaging and stories within timelines. Our platform enables people with the power to share product, tutorial, and demo videos, alongside their contact details within a dedicated digital business card — helping people drive engagement through storytelling on a level unseen. I believe this is the future of networking and we’re looking to be the leaders in this space.”
New features include:
- OCR Business Card Scanner: Take a snapshot of a business card to transcribe the detectable text into a new contact in Switchit and your CRM. The business card scanner feature stores a digital copy in the app.
- CRM Integration with HubSpot and Salesforce: Sync contacts from Switchit with your existing sales workflows in HubSpot and Salesforce, so you can spend time getting work done, not managing it. Automatically import unique contact data points into your CRM — like name, phone, fax, email, title, company, address, website, and descriptions.
- Custom Branding: Customize digital business cards to match your brand with custom colors, videos, images, social links, web URLs, contact details, and greeting messages.
- SMART Contact Management: Switchit’s SMART Contact Manager automatically saves the contact details of people who receive your card. You can call or text contacts from the app, add new contacts, edit existing contacts, export contacts to your phone’s address book, add notes and view historical data. All your contacts are safely backed up in the cloud, so you can instantly access them from anywhere.

“I believe business cards should grow as your business grows and changes. After nearing the end of my first iteration of business cards, I dreaded the thought of having to “print” new ones. As I began searching for an alternative, I soon found there weren’t many options out there that allowed for real-time customization and updates. Nor were the options very user-friendly. With most, you had to sacrifice one need for another. Not with SwitchIt! The app is cutting edge and I always have my business cards with me because their digital. Not to mention the ease of use is phenomenal! It took me less than 3 minutes to set up two different business cards. Now, I have a business card for potential clients and a business card for potential partners!,” said KB CALS CEO & Founder, Kyana Brathwaite.
