Regardless of the industry or career field we find ourselves in, all of us – at one point or another – rely on interpersonal connections to bolster our personal and professional networks. However, exchanging contact information with others you meet can feel clunky. Whether it’s through taking notes on our phone, finding and messaging people on social media platforms like LinkedIn, or scrambling to scrawl down details on a paper business card, none of these options present an easy or seamless way to store a contact’s information, let alone to follow up and stay in touch with them.
Though there have been countless mobile apps released in an attempt to address this issue, this only further exacerbates the cumbersome amount of apps we store on our phones that eat up memory storage and usage data. Similarly, if you meet someone new and mutually pull out your phones to exchange contact information, the momentum of this social interaction is gone the second one of you begins scrolling through notifications on your phone, and by the time you both open up the app to share information with one another, both of you are removed from the conversation.
These issues are just a few of the reasons why entrepreneur Pieter Limburg created the Mobilo card: the smart contact info card of the digital age for those looking to make a lasting (and winning) first impression.
Not your father’s traditional business card
Mobilio’s innovative nature lies in its ability to do away with contemporary business cards and the ways business professionals have traditionally exchanged contact information. By simply tapping your Mobilo card on a new contact’s phone screen, all of your contact information will appear right on their phone. Users can even include a hub for all of their social media profiles (such as LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, etc.) as well as links to important business documents like brochures, whitepapers, presentations, and more.
“Mobilo allows you to exchange contact details without any physical contact,” says Limburg, Mobilo’s founder and CEO. “Each of our cards contains a unique QR code and NFC chip which doesn’t require an app. Instead, we make sure you can stay in touch and follow up with all of your important contacts with a simple tap on your phone. We also work with all types of companies that have an internal or external sales force in order to save them up to 80% on the average cost of more traditional paper business cards, reduce paper waste, and provide data that they’ve never had about networking activities within their teams.”
Along with these features, Mobilo cards also come included with automation technology in order to make staying connected with key contacts as seamless and streamlined as possible. In this way, Mobilo users no longer have to sort through piles of physical business cards or folders of digital files in order to stay ahead of their follow-ups; rather, each new meeting and contact made can be instantly converted into a potential lead, saving valuable time and resources.
Setting a new industry standard
The uniqueness of Limburg’s Mobilo card lies in its integrated technology. Each card utilizes near-field communication (NFC) to share your contact information without ever making physical contact or having to exchange a physical item, powered by the radio frequency identification (RFID) chip contained within each Mobilo card.
In true visionary fashion, Limburg has also fitted each card with its own personal QR code, allowing users to share their contact information even remotely over Zoom meetings or virtual video calls. Users can similarly sync their company CRM software or email to their Mobilo account, as well as some 2,000 other applications to allow for full integration of their sales pipelines and other customer-centric softwares. Mobilo’s cards are also made using responsibly-sourced materials that are easily recyclable, making them the perfect option for environmentally-conscious business professionals looking to regain control of their lead generation pipeline.
“I can still remember the feeling when I got my first stack of business cards,” Limburg says, “as most people can. Holding them in my hands was all the confirmation I needed to validate my vision of Mobilo as a company and a product. After all, as companies and technologies evolve, so must their physical representation.”
That physical representation, as Limburg explains, is the business card.
Along with Limburg’s creation of the Mobilo card itself, he has also created a Mobilo “smart button” as well as a key fob for his innovation, ensuring that no Mobilo user is ever without a means to share their information with a new contact, or their ability to follow up with them.
