About Contact Network's Application

The Contact Network search is a high-ROI tool that companies use to speed sales cycles, increase close rates, improve business intelligence, and enhance cross-selling by helping employees find useful contacts among their coworkers. Users simply enter a target person, company or industry and the search results instantly provide a ranked list of colleagues that may have useful contacts. They then request introductions from their colleagues. Personal privacy is guaranteed because private contact information is never disclosed by the system; colleagues retain control and choose to share their relationships on a case-by-case basis. All participants can set their privacy settings and level of sharing.

The ranking of search results is based on a proprietary algorithm that scores recent email traffic, electronic address book entries, employment history, and a variety of third-party and proprietary contact management systems. The application requires no training to use and data input is 100% automated.

The Contact Network application v3.0 is available now and provided to enterprises for a monthly subscription fee, which includes installation and full support.
