Personal Vizibility ® QR Codes Embed Social Networks on Business Cards and Resumes; CommonConnections ™ Makes LinkedIn and Facebook Real-Time Networking Tools
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 13, 2011 — Vizibility Inc. (http://vizibility.com) announced at the DEMO Conference today a preview of its Mobile Identity Toolkit, a powerful new addition to the company's online identity management platform, which is being integrated into leading social networking sites, professional profile sites, career hubs and online reputation management services. The company's groundbreaking mobile web app enables integration of personal QR (quick response) codes with popular social networking sites LinkedIn and Facebook. Through the company's patent-pending method of "social network connection pre-authorization," users can easily embed their social graphs into their personal Vizibility QR codes, which can be placed on business cards, resumes, marketing materials or other media and scanned with a smartphone. Vizibility's new CommonConnections capability turns social networks into real-time, instant reputation-building tools.
CommonConnections is one of several powerful features being introduced today. Another addition is a first-of-its-kind, easy-to-use management tool for small, medium and large professional services firms to centrally curate, organize and share online identities for all their professionals. The management tool makes it easy to administer multiple accounts within the same firm, including configuring and downloading QR codes, updating and branding mobile business cards, monitoring usage, standardizing results for a unified mobile experience and more.
Approximately 14 million people scanned QR codes in the U.S. during the month of June alone according to Mashable, a leading social news blog. A recent Vizibility survey of legal professionals from top law firms, including the membership of the Legal Marketing Association (LMA), found that 45% of respondents said they already use QR codes while another 35% indicated that they planned to start using them within 12 months (http://infographics.vizibility.com).
"Now when you meet someone, you can find out immediately who you have in common rather than having to wait hours or days to connect online after the fact. The new CommonConnections feature is a powerful way to build instant credibility by bringing online social networks into real-life networking at the point when we need it most," said Vizibility founder and Chief Executive Officer James Alexander (http://vizibility.com/james). "A growing number of professionals recognize the need to proactively control, organize and share their online identities and want to do so using savvy technologies like QR codes. Marketers need an easy way to manage the online brands of their professionals while ensuring a consistently branded mobile and PC experience. Now, for the first time, our identity management platform gives professionals and marketers the tools they need to excel."
The new Mobile Identity Tool Kit will be sold on an individual basis to professionals and as a firm-wide solution. It will be available on Friday, September 16, 2011 from Vizibility and, later, from the company’s growing network of partners. The individual professional package (called a ProPack) is priced at $199.95 per year, and the firm-wide edition is priced at $499.95 annually.
Vizibility is showcasing the Mobile Identity Toolkit at the DEMO Fall 2011 Conference in Santa Clara, California on September 13th and 14th. For more information on the company, or to become a partner, visit http://www.vizibility.com.
