A vCard is used as a data interchange format in smartphone contacts, and personal digital assistants (PDAs), etc. It is effectively an electronic business card. It is an easy way to share your contacts (messengers, e-mail, phone, etc.) with customers and partners.
Businesses love a vCard because they are convenient and quick to use. One scan with a smartphone and the contact is immediately added to the phonebook. No need to enter data manually. No fiddling around with scanners and OCR software. Mecard may refer to a QR code and often accompanies the vCard. To create a QR code, visit the QR Code generator website. QR codes can be used for a wide variety of purposes including a website address, text, email, images, and other data, etc.
A vCard is saved as a .vcf file, which is the Internet standard for sharing contact information. When you send one, its .vcf file is sent with the message as an attachment. It helps people add you to their address book with one mouse click. You can attach it to your emails, upload it to your website, or even send it over a cell phone. Websites such as Vcardmaker allow you to create a vcf file for free.
The best place to use a vcard is in an email so that recipients can quickly add your contact details to their online address book found in Outlook Express and other email programs. They help you to minimize your signature because your contact information is available in the vCard (and therefore doesn’t need to be included at the bottom of every email message). QR codes are better for business documents such as flyers so that people can quickly scan the code and your data will automatically be added again. For more information, please contact me.
