UPDATE: The winning scripts are attached below!

Our 2nd Automation Challenge is here!
This time, it is Business Card Crunch.

Create an end-to-end solution for digitizing your business cards and populating your contact database and win a $500, $300 or $200 Amazon gift card.

What is the task?
Develop a bot that digitizes the data from your business cards and enters it into a Salesforce account.

What will you need?
For the challenge, you will need to use:

  • the set of business cards that we have prepared for you
  • a Salesforce account
  • and, of course, RPA Express.

Where can you sign up?
Register for challenge on our website. Here, you can also read about the rules, download the business cards and find the link to register a trial Saleforce account.

Submission deadline is Friday, April 13th 11:00am EST.

Good luck!
And may the best bot win,

RPA Express Team

Hi @ashapkina

How to register as a team?

#21

Hi Shirin,

If you want to work as a team, you should all register for the challenge separately, but in the submission of your final solution you should write that it is a team submission and list all team members (with emails that they used to register for the challenge).
