ShowLink Lite is a limited version of SAGE ShowLink. It uses the device’s camera to scan leads that can then be edited on the device. At the end of the show, you’ll receive an Excel report with all of your leads. Rental includes everything you need - no additional equipment is required.

Rental is $95 for the first device, and $65 for a second device. To sign up for lead retrieval, email ses@sageworld.com.
