Welcome to VMware Workspace ONE Cards admin guide. Workspace ONE Cards is a mobile application that reads and saves a physical business card as a contact in your Exchange account through Exchange Web Services (EWS). You can scan business cards using your smartphone camera and convert them to contacts.

Workspace ONE Cards for iOS and Android helps you scan and manage all your business cards quickly and accurately. It enhances your mobile productivity by reducing the time spent on inserting the contact details and focuses on the enterprise content security.

  • Take a photo of a business card and convert it into an Exchange contact.
  • Scan business cards from 17 different languages.
  • Edit details or add custom details when previewing a contact before saving.
