Shoeboxed recently announced a partnership with Jigsaw to help business professionals expand their network of business contacts by scanning and sharing business cards online. Shoeboxed gives people an easy way to get hard copy business cards scanned and uploaded to the web. Jigsaw then aggregates them, letting people trade what they have for fresh contacts from their crowd-sourced directory of 12 million business people and 2 million companies.
Now people can use Shoeboxed’s prepaid envelopes to mail in their business cards where they will be scanned and imported to Jigsaw, the world’s largest online business directory. Shoeboxed customers will automatically accrue Jigsaw points that can be redeemed at www.jigsaw.com for business contacts they want but don’t yet have.
Shoeboxed’s by-mail scanning service starts at $9.95 per month. The basic Jigsaw service is free.
