CardFi is a high-tech business card that harnesses the power of beacon technology so that it becomes easier to network in the digital age. There are still a lot of people who carry around paper business cards, but this iBeacon business card takes the form of a mobile app and a device. Depending on how you like to work, you can use just one on its own, or both.

With CardFi, the device can be turned on and when someone else in in close proximity to you, your contact details are swapped instantly. Another helpful feature is that CardFi makes a note of when and where you met this contact and stores this information in the cloud.

CardFi is the equivalent of buying about 250 printed business cards for about $20, but the real beauty of the iBeacon business card is that it can be updated anytime as needed without having to seek out a printer.
