Professional Services is a relationship business. The relationships that each employee has are the key asset of the firm.

The Contact Network is a customer-proven solution that allows all employees to leverage the extended network of contacts that colleagues can provide. This drives client development, speeds the sales cycle, enhances research, captures competitive intelligence and improves recruiting.

The Contact Network has proven successful in leading professional services organizations of 10 to over 10,000 employees, such as:

  • Consulting
  • Law
  • Accounting and Audit
  • Financial Services
  • Investment Management
  • Advertising
  • Public Relations

Every employee has a valuable network of contacts, and most of it is untapped or underutilized. Existing applications, such as CRM and contact managers, average only 26% of potentially valuable contacts. Contact Network captures 95%, and is uniquely suited to the professional services environment because it provides:

  • Complete automation: bankers, consultants, lawyers, auditors and other busy professionals will not enter or maintain data in a KM system. Data capture in Contact Network is 100% automated.
  • Complete privacy protection: professionals demand that they maintain control over their contacts. Unlike CRM, the Contact Network never reveals contact details - the contact owner decide case-by-case when it is appropriate to share.
  • Completely intuitive: the simple search engine-style interface requires no training. This simplicity of design engenders employee confidence in the application from day one.

The Contact Network unlocks the power of existing contacts in a secure, reliable and private internal network. The Contact Network continually compiles, updates and ranks the extended personal contact network within your company. Indexed against an SIC-coded taxonomy of 125,000 companies, the Contact Network instantly provides the best available set of contacts in any target company or industry.

Leverage the relationships extended network of introductions that colleagues can provide. The Contact Network provides the automated balance between sharing and privacy that works in a demanding professional services environment.
