Title (EN) ELECTRONIC BUSINESS CARD EXCHANGE SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'ECHANGE DE CARTES DE VISITE ELECTRONIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) To provide a user with better experience of cooperation between an electronic business card processing program and a communication program when exchanging electronic business cards. Electronic business cards are stored in a DB server, which is one of storages for a communication program, as well as an electronic business card local file. Thus, even if a PC is a company's PC, for example, the electronic business cards can be viewed by accessing the DB server from another PC or the like outside an office. Further, the electronic business card processing program operates with the communication program as backend, however, the electronic business card processing program may not be installed on a PC in some cases. Even in such a case, the communication program alone can display received electronic business cards that are stored in the communication program local file on the screen of a display.
(FR) L'invention vise à fournir à un utilisateur une fonction de coopération améliorée entre un programme de traitement de cartes de visite électroniques et un programme de communication lors d'un échange de cartes de visite électroniques. Les cartes de visite électroniques sont stockées dans un serveur de base de données, qui est l'une des mémoires pour un programme de communication, ainsi que dans un fichier local de cartes de visite électroniques. Ainsi, même si un PC est un PC d'une société, par exemple, les cartes de visite électroniques peuvent être visualisées par accès au serveur de base de données à partir d'un autre PC ou analogue à l'extérieur d'un bureau. En outre, le programme de traitement de cartes de visite électroniques fonctionne avec le programme de communication en tant que système principal. Toutefois, dans certains cas, le programme de traitement de cartes de visite électroniques peut ne pas être installé sur un PC. Même dans un tel cas, le programme de communication séparé peut afficher les cartes de visite électroniques reçues qui sont stockées dans le fichier local du programme de communication sur l'écran d'un afficheur.
