In a past article I shared a client information tool called Rapportive that works within your Gmail inbox. It’s a great tool and functions wonderfully on your desktop or laptop while sending and receiving email – but it’s not as useful when you’re on the go and meeting people at business events, sales calls, or even social gatherings.
This is where you need Refresh.
Refresh easily syncs with your iPhone’s calendar to find people you’re meeting with and provides tailored insights in the form of a personal dossier collected by filtering that individual’s public profiles on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Foursquare, and even their personal and business blogs.
You can even schedule just-in-time alerts and have Refresh send you information to review about the people you’ll be meeting in your next appointment, or simply type a new name into the search bar to have Refresh deliver a profile on-demand.
You can also add meeting notes into the Refresh profile for future reference, or link it to your Evernote account to see any notes you have about the company or the person saved from past projects in your Evernote notebooks.
Never talk about the weather again!
Is it more valuable to talk about the latest sports scandal or to let them know you read their latest white paper on the changes happening in their industry? How about knowing where to hold your next lunch meeting because you can see they have a favorite restaurant on Foursquare?
Refresh does just aggregate social data, it adds context to those facts – revealing rich insights into the person you’re meeting and suggesting actionable talking points.
Refresh is free to download and use on your iPhone right now, and you can sign-up to receive an alert as soon as the Android version is released.
