A new form of contact information sharing and lead collection will be available for the NRAMM Workshop this year. Your name badge will include a QR code encoded with your name, email and phone number. You will also receive a sticker containing your code to place next to your poster, if you have one. The code can be read using a mobile app called BadgeScanTM, which is available in the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.

BadgeScan allows you to:

(1) rapidly collect contact information via scanning QR codes.
(2) take and save notes for each contact.
(3) share individual contacts between devices.
(4) export contacts via email as a spreadsheet.
(4) create and launch customized surveys.
(5) create your own QR badge on the BadgeScan App to rapidly share your information with anyone who also has BadgeScan.

The app does NOT require a network connection (except for use of the survey element).
The app is completely FREE. No in-app purchase ever required for full functionality.
All contact info is stored on your phone, not on a server.
