As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic continues to impact the world, the health and safety of families and communities are at the top of everyone’s mind. The lasting impact of COVID-19 is unclear; however, the effects are far-reaching, affecting hundreds of thousands of people. The pandemic is significantly impacting the global economy, conferences, businesses, and their ability to function.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended social distancing to prohibit the spread of the virus. While it’s speculated that social distancing will be temporary, unfortunately, many executives have been affected by this crisis and are having to seriously reconsider their company spending. Furthermore, conferences have had to cancel, dramatically impacting people’s ability to network in peer-to-peer settings.
For people and organizations that are using paper business cards, but searching for an alternative way to share their contact information (without close contact) with others, Switchit has the perfect solution.
Switchit offers multiple ways to share a digital business card online, through text message, email, QR Code, or social media.
Let’s take a look at how an easy exchange of “contactless” digital cards can help drive online engagement, minimize hand-to-hand contact, and keep remote staff members motivated during this tumultuous time.
Make Your Digital Conference or Online Event Come Alive
Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, conferences and event planners can still provide attendees with rich, virtual engagement opportunities by infusing Switchit’s QR Code to facilitate an online networking experience. Our platform offers a seamless, creative way for all attendees to share their contact information in any online environment. Using the phone’s camera, event attendees’ can take a picture of their peer’s QR Code, allowing them to view the digital card in their phone’s web browser. Even better, event attendees do not need the app installed to view other attendee’s cards.
If you are a conference or event coordinator looking to offer attendees a way to share contact information safely and securely, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to work with you.
