He added that the company had over 1000 customers spread across multiple offices in India and overseas. He noticed that for any solution positioning and delivery at the customer place, teams across various departments were involved and every segment of team leaders contacted their counterparts to deliver successful projects.
Enterprises face colossal data loss of customers as organizations have no mechanism to track contacts established, business cards exchanged, introductions made by their employees, and manual feeding of data in CRMs. Studies suggest a huge number of opportunities are lost when contacts are unorganized, unmapped, and not timely accessible and contacts are shared with colleagues.

Digital transformation and Productivity
In today’s digitized world, businesses cannot afford not to be automated. Digital transformation is no longer a choice but a necessity for success. Sharing of Business cards is important for every business meeting and has become a social norm.
Every day, digital transactions are the norm for consumers. But for social interactions or business introductions, they revert to the traditional way—paper visiting cards.
Studies show that 88% of them are thrown away within the first week and these cards cannot be recycled and become part of landfills. That is why there is a need for more awareness about adopting digital cards. Adopting them is an opportunity for everyone, from individuals to enterprises, who will reduce their carbon footprint, strengthen ESG goals, and live more eco-friendly lives.
Time-saving methods like well-organized contacts are important for increasing productivity and efficiency, which leads to higher revenue streams and profitability. The primary goal of CardByte is to take it to an international level and make it the single-stop solution for the contact management needs of businesses, corporations, and working professionals.

CardByte is looking for investors and expects to raise funding to help further build its tech offerings through the ‘enterprise’ version of the app. The team has already started working on the technology, and the company hopes to roll out the enterprise version soon.
CardByte is a made-in-India networking platform, and all Indians are encouraged to create an account on the site. The service is currently only available in India, but with time, it has hopes of expanding globally.
