Launch of TAPP, a revolutionary platform that lets you privately crowd-source the management of your contacts.
LONDON & DUBAI, September 26, 2012 — TAPP Networks is happy to announce the launch of its game-changing contact-sharing and management platform, TAPP. A free service with apps for iOS (Apple) and Blackberry devices, TAPP, solves several every-day problems faced in exchanging and managing contact information, including capturing other people’s contact information, keeping it up to date, and sharing different information with different people during the evolution of a relationship.
"Contact information is exchanged and used every day, yet the problems we have been putting up with for years, have never been adequately, or elegantly fixed”, said Naush Malik, founder of TAPP Networks. “It’s crazy that when you meet 20 new people at a conference, you have to spend time typing in their information, while each of them needs to type in your contact information - and then when something changes, you have to do more work. In fact, the more people you meet, the more work you have to do. We felt that it is time to shift this paradigm, so that you essentially crowd-source the entry and management of other people’s contact information.”
“TAPP revolutionizes the experience entirely, doing away with all the pain points, and increasing productivity. With TAPP, exchanging contact information is more intuitive. When you meet someone, the only thing you type is a TAPP ID. Automatically you get one another’s contact information into your phone’s addressbook. You each decide which contact information you wish to share. When your own information changes, you update it in TAPP, and those that had the old information, get the update automatically. TAPP makes it easy to connect with those you already know, based on your existing phone and social contacts.”
“Contact information is a big deal, and keeping it private and secure was of paramount importance for us”, explains Malik, “we wanted to build a platform that focused on contact information only, so that you can use with any type of contact, from both your professional and personal life. TAPP helps you manage these different identities, and lets you be contacted through your chosen medium.” TAPP is being launched at a time when people are increasingly concerned about how their content and personal data held by networking sites is being used by advertisers, recruiters and businesses.”
Previously a private equity professional and investment banker, Malik together with his team focuses on leveraging prevailing technologies to solve a universal problem that is acute for business professionals.
Free iPhone and Blackberry apps are now available, and can be accessed through the website at www.myTAPP.com, or through your mobile browser at www.TAPPdownload.com. An Android version of the app will follow, as well as tools / CRM services for businesses that wish to better connect with their customers and associates.
