In the fast-paced world of business, networking remains a cornerstone of success. Whether you're attending an in-person conference, trade show, or casual meetup, exchanging business cards is a time-honoured tradition. The new function is transforming the way we manage our professional contacts.

Starting with SAP Business One version 10.0 FP 2111 a new app has been added to the web client for scanning business cards and creating business partner master data records on the fly.

With the new app, a frequently asked capability was to enable adding a new contact person to an existing business partner (and not create an entirely new business partner). Starting with SAP Business One version 10.0 FP 2305, this option is available.

The new functionality is particularly intuitive and easy for those of you who have already tried the business partner scan.

The steps to add a new contact person to an existing business partner are consistent with SAP Business One business logic and required validations.

After choosing the new option 'Create a contact for an existing business partner', you only need to define the type and the code of the business partner you want to update with a new contact person.

Contact Person’s scanning can increase productivity and efficiency, I invite you to try it in your next in-person event.
