Company description

A world full of contacts.

There are billions of mobile phones in the world and all of them contain contacts, billions of contacts. 

It doesn’t stop there, there are also contacts in our laptops, PC’s and tablets.

The market keeps growing and evolving but the contact system has been neglected. 

Everyone knows that first impressions matter, making a lasting impression matters, and making a professional impression matters.

In the rich, vibrant world that we live in, no business or business professional wants to have their image, brand, logo and corporate identity reduced to a bland, boring line of black and white text in a contact address book but this happens regularly many millions of times each day around the world.

It’s very clear that the world needs a better digital contact system. A contact system that protects and preserves the brand identity, equity and integrity of businesses and business people. A system that provides true tangible benefits to its users and can be leveraged to provide real commercial outcomes to businesses and business professionals worldwide.

 

Introducing ASTARICKS

ASTARICKS is the World’s Premiere Digital Contact Card System. ASTARICKS provides the world with a ground breaking new digital contact card (and business card) system. It delivers richly formatted contact information, pictures, links and more in an new interactive, updatable and secure data format (.astr) and compliments it with a suite of high quality products and services that empowers both the contact owner and all recipients.

ASTARICKS is much more than a dynamic new contact card system, it’s a powerful, cost effective global marketing system that can greatly assist advertising, promotion, networking, lead generation, lead capture, information capture, contact management and much more.

The ASTARICKS System has great depth and diversity and consists of a revolutionary new interactive, updatable and secure data format, a ground breaking linking system, Online Business Directory, extensive and feature rich iPhone® app, Windows® 7 and 8 Desktop app, Outlook® 2010 Add-in, enhanced mapping solution, cloud account, management portal and analytics.

The system and its back end are very significant. The system uses relational and non-relational database solutions and is big, scalable, optimized and fast. The back end also incorporates a sophisticated data integrity monitoring system.

What does it do?

The ASTARICKS System bridges the gap between B2B, B2C, C2C by providing a cloud base multi-sided platform in conjunction with a revolutionary new contact card system and linking system that allows users to seamlessly capture richly formatted contact information, logos, pictures, product details and other information and act upon it immediately or store and view it later, either while online or offline.

The System is designed to showcase information in a professional and engaging way and to give users the tools to easily save, sort, view, share and compare.

The ASTARICKS System includes ASTARICKS Cards, ASTARICKS Codes, ASTARICKS Business Directory, ASTARICKS Mobile App, ASTARICKS Plus for PC, ASTARICKS Add-in for Microsoft Outlook, ASTARICKS Widget, ASTARICKS MD (Maps and Directions), ASTARICKS User Portal and ASTARICKS Cloud.

The core of the ASTARICKS System is ASTARICKS Contact Cards.

ASTARICKS Cards are not a standard vCard in new packaging, they’re revolutionary new interactive, updatable and secure digital contact card (.astr) that can contain extensive contact information, pictures, logos, web links, social connectors, ‘About Us’ description, operating hours, maps, directions and more.

ASTARICKS CARDS contain a lot more information than a regular business card or contact card and provide clean, concise, richly formatted information at the push of a button.

ASTARICKS Cards include 10 pictures slots with titles, descriptions and hyperlinks, allowing the Card to contain a lot more than just contact information. ASTARICKS Cards can contain product images, coupons, sales promotions and more.

ASTARICKS CARDS dramatically reduce typing as well as human error associated with the data entry of contact information. There is no need type contact details into your phone, PC or Outlook because they are already in the Card.

All ASTARICKS Cards are updatable which means if an ASTARICKS Card is updated (by the card owner) with new information such as a phone number, picture, coupon or promotion, then everyone who has that particular ASTARICKS Card will receive the ‘push’ update, this is extremely beneficially for both businesses and consumers. 

All ASTARICKS Cards have a unique ASTARICKS Code. The ASTARICKS Code is a game changer, it’s not a graphic code, shape or image, it's a number based code and it's brilliantly quick and easy to use.

You can easily recognize an ASTARICKS Code because it has the unique ASTARICKS icon in the Code. Here's our ASTARICKS Code: 64241100*1

ASTARICKS Codes are not random, unfamiliar numbers and they do not contain complex alphanumeric sequences of letters, numbers and special characters. ASTARICKS Codes are simple number based codes that can entered via a keypad not a cumbersome and slow keyboard. ASTARICKS Codes are entered in the same way that you enter a phone number, in fact  ASTARICKS Codes can include a phone number which make them very quick and easy to read, write, recite and enter.

That is a brief overview, it is a very comprehensive system with a lot more features and benefits than listed above.
