New York, NY (PRWEB) May 06, 2014
nextSociety (xS), the network smarter app that makes meaningful networking opportunities happen for professionals, today officially launched its xS app for iOS on the App Store.
xS helps professionals and entrepreneurs quickly identify the most relevant connections in their network, based on their professional interests and business specialties. By filtering connections based on relevance, xS allows users to categorize, organize and focus on staying connected with key contacts.
“With so many contacts across multiple social networks it’s difficult to cut through the clutter and make sure we’re connecting with the people that can make the biggest difference to us,” said Peter Stebe, CEO of nextSociety. “We created xS to help professionals never miss an opportunity to connect with their most relevant contacts in every situation.”
With professionals in mind, the app is based on LinkedIn to initially focus on business connections. It's designed to maximize “same place, same time, same interest” opportunities within existing networks.
xS notifies users about relevant contacts before they travel so they can book meetings in advance in cities they are visiting. This feature differentiates xS from GPS-based networking apps by allowing professionals to "network smarter" by planning strategically before a business trip.
The app’s value was demonstrated in an early prototype version when co-founder Alexander Tange used xS to reconnect with one of his professional contacts while traveling to London. This contact later became an investor in xS. “I would have missed this opportunity without this connection feature,” said Tange.
“nextSociety makes you more effective and efficient while networking,” added Stebe. “It’s a smart, next generation, user friendly, time saving professional networking app that helps you make the most of your contacts.”
Future features will include networking opportunities based on relevant events, jobs, news and Twitter posts.
xS is currently available for iOS while an Android version will be released by year-end. Facebook and Twitter integration will be added in the near future.
Today (May 6, 2014) nextSociety is competing for user votes at TechCrunch Disrupt New York in the Social category of Startup Alley. Those who like the concept of nextSociety are able to vote for the app at this Audience Choice Vote link.
