What is a Catalyst Smart Card?

The Catalyst Smart Card is a high-tech business card that sends your contact information directly and digitally to a smartphone.

How does the Catalyst Smart Card work?

The Catalyst Smart Card relies on a phone's Near-Field Communication (NFC) antenna to power it to send your info back to the phone. The phone then downloads the information, at which point the user can save it to their phone book (also known as the "Contacts" app).

Does the Catalyst Smart Card work on iPhones and Androids?

Yes, it does, though the interaction is a little different between the two platforms.

For iPhones X and up, NFC is always turned on. Once an iPhone reads the card, it will display a notification and the information can be saved to the phone.

For Androids, NFC is a setting which can be turned on and off in the pull- down menu or the Settings app. Once on, it will read the card and prompt a download through a browser, like Chrome.

Do I need a special app to use my card?

Nope! All of your info is programmed onto the card, and the other person doesn’t need an app to receive your info. Your profile is downloaded through an internet browser, which every smartphone has. The info saves into their phone book (also known as "Contacts").

Is a phone camera necessary to use my Catalyst Smart Card?

No, your information is transmitted by NFC (Near-Field Communication). However, if someone is using an older phone or unable to turn the NFC antenna on, they can use their camera for the QR code on the back of each card.
