About Us

We like building better tools.
a better way to swap contact info

We built this app because we need it. As conference organizers, we use it ourselves at events where contact information is embedded in codes printed on attendee badges.

After years of searching for a solution with our required feature set, we decided the best way to get what we want is to build it ourselves. BadgerScan was born.

We value privacy (most solutions fail on this point). We strive to create a user experience that does not interfere with establishing new relationships (i.e. you should not be fiddling with your phone). Finally, we are delighted for this opportunity to make BadgerScan available to you free of charge, and we hope you enjoy using it as much as we do.

  • We never collect your data. Some say it's a missed opportunity. We politely disagree.

  • Only one tap to scan a badge or show My Badge.

  • Integrate a custom web-based form to meet your unique needs, such as an opt-in signature or survey.

  • Absolutely free for use by everyone - including organizers, attendees, and vendors.
