As most people are starting to slide into summer holiday more, the Stinto team continues to work on delivering some massive new functionality that will be available after summer. We can’t wait to show you what we have been working on, but you will have to wait a little longer. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek into the new features that you can look forward to:
Who said a CRM is only for the selected few in the sales department? We want to help you grow and leverage your contacts to build a strong network. Until now you have been able to make notes on a contact to remember the relation or a certain task you should perform. We are taking that to the next level with reminders that further enhance the personal CRM concept. On each contact, you can set a reminder. You can do it as a one time action, eg. ‘send proposal’, ‘call and congratulate on new job’, ‘Invite for dinner’, or a recurring action, eg. ‘Call mom’, ‘Check upon delivery’, ‘Congratulate on birthday’
This will help you to stay in touch with the contacts that matter to you the most, both professionally and personally.
One of the features that many use is ‘groups’, where you can create groups for selected contacts. Groups are starting to form everywhere and Stinto users are using the functionality for everything from groups at professional network events, communities of practice, company alumni, and even sporting, school and even maternity groups.
With a popular feature comes feedback and we have listened. Therefore groups will receive an update to include a simple messaging board where you can make announcements to your group for everyone to read, eg. ‘We will meet in the reception at 9.00’, ‘Next meeting is on Thursday’, ‘remember to bring a towel’.
On top of that, you are now also able to invite non-Stinto users to a group. This means that you can create a list of contacts that you want in your group, and Stinto will send an invitation to join Stinto and join the group. Now there is no excuse for not throwing out your old call lists, and make them digital!
Last but not least, you will be able to create “public” or “private” groups, that can be configured to be “open” or “closed”, giving you more control over the usability and value of the group.
Bulk card sharing
With the next update, you can send your card to multiple users at once. This makes it easier and faster to share your contact card and receive dynamic contact details back from the contacts that matter to you the most.
Have a great summer, and remember to Stay in Touch!
