Having the ability to look across your entire professional network wherever and whenever you want is a critical capability for modern professionals who need constant access to this information in order to effectively do their jobs.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
Gist, an online service that helps people build stronger professional relationships, today announced the availability of its Android application. Currently in public beta, the service automatically pulls together information about contacts and their companies to deliver actionable insights in less time with less effort.
The Android application offers users complete business profiles for their contacts including updates from social networks like Facebook and Twitter, mentions in the news, and email correspondence across multiple inboxes. Presented in context around an upcoming meeting or recent status update, Gist puts the most important information about contacts at a user’s fingertips.
“Mobile devices are already one of the primary and most frequent ways that we access the web and communicate with others,” said T.A. McCann, founder and CEO of Gist. “Having the ability to look across your entire professional network wherever and whenever you want is a critical capability for modern professionals who need constant access to this information in order to effectively do their jobs.”
The Gist Android app joins an existing iPhone application for Gist’s mobile users. The company also supports the vast majority of business inboxes with plugins for Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes, as well as the recently-launched Gist Gadget for Google Apps users.
With the new Android application Gist is continuing its commitment to put information about your professional network at your fingertips, wherever you might be.
