In today’s world, we have surpassed an information explosion, and are entrenched in a communications explosion. Communication spans the globe, with instant messages, email and other communication methods as varied and vast as the numbers of people online. The number of online users has also skyrocketed. In 2000, 360,985,492 people used the internet. Today, as of December 2009, the number has ballooned to 1,802,330,457. Online users are maximizing internet uses, but without a contact manager tool, they may be forging ahead half armed.
Communication and community were behind e-commerce activities on the Online Publisher Associations index of internet activity. Information is booming, communication is booming. Communication in April indexed up, unlike any of the other four activity categories of the Index.
Emailing, instant messaging, and other types of communication activities are popular. Engaging in community building activities are also popular. Together, these two activities constitute a substantial representation of what users are doing online, communicating with one another. As a network grows, so too, do problems, not just advantages.
In fact, the Activity Index identifies that e-commerce is the primary activity of online users. The internet has opened corridors for billions of business transactions. There are as many and more online opportunities as there are users.
Finding people and opportunities is not a matter of if, but how often, and what to do with all that contact information. Envisioning this scenario is much like a basket overflowing with a field of possibilities from which you have yet to pick.
Contact software reduces the waste of time that happens when there is a lack of method to collecting data. Users can standardize and customize what data are needed in their communications efforts. Streamlining an approach and the contents of a contacts list can extend the time dedicated to reviewing information, and making contact with a contact.
Electronic data can be ported outside of its original archive, and tracked. Simplified copy and paste options, importing and exporting contact data, and updating in a centralized system can increase the bottom line. This information can be used to build a background history of prior communications. Other parties can obtain copies, or collaborate in upkeep. Contract manager tools offer functional features similar to business cards, a yearbook, or phone book. Add to these features equivalent, services typically provided by a secretary, public relations expert, customer service department, or a sales force.
