This year we’ve made it easy for you to capture information about each other at the ScanSource partner conference, September 20-23rd in Savannah, GA. Each name badge will contain a Microsoft Tag pre-loaded with a vcard for each attendee. You can use your smart phone to capture and download contact information straight into your phone’s contact list.

Directions for installing the Microsoft Tag Reader.

  • If you have an iPhone or Android device simply go to the app market for your phone and install the “Microsoft Tag Reader”.
  • If you have another brand of smart phone, you’ll need to visit Follow the directions there to download the app on your phone.
  • Scanning the Tag is as easy as opening the application, point and click (just like you’re taking a photo).

And, you’ll want to scan your own tag as soon as you pick up your badge at registration. Several of you will be lucky winners of valuable gift cards. If you scan your badge and the the word “winner” is listed in your vcard – you win.

Don’t miss out. Get your smart phone ready for all the action at this exciting show. We’ll feature the Microsoft Tag on other collateral and signage throughout the show.
