Pile is a social business card reader app. It uses clever algorithm, and social data to give fast & accurate results.
We all have a pile of business cards lying around somewhere. Existing solutions may:
a. Ask us to verify the 'correctness' of data (in the case of OCR) - time consuming;
b. Use mechanical turk - slow and expensive; or
c. Include QR codes (vCards) - less than 1% of business cards use this method
But an even bigger problem the above methods ignore - the contact details are growing old. People change jobs, offices, departments or roles, but the digital entry stays static.
Pile scans business cards quickly, provides highly accurate results, augments the business card's data with social information (using the community of users), and automatically updates the contact details when something changes.
People that claim their virtual business card can also view statistics (such as 'how many people viewed, shared or saved my business card').
