¡Hola a todos los amigos hispanohablantes del mundo! Por fin ha llegado la versión en castellano del mejor servicio de gestión de contactos. Como bien sabéis, GlipMe permite una gestión avanzada, completa, fácil e inmediata de todos los contactos de vuestra agenda. Además estamos desarrollando la nueva versión 4.0, que estará disponible en breve con una nueva gráfica y nuevas funciones (será posible cargar la foto de un contacto directamente a través de la cámara del móvil) y podéis empezar a utilizarla ya en su versión beta. Como siempre, cada sugerencia o queja es bienvenida, para ayudarnos a seguir creciendo y mejorando GlipMe para vosotros.
GlipMe is great for business scenarios, where you need to manage company-wide contacts, and support typical business processes. We created a simple video to explain, for example, how you can use GlipMe features to manage sales scenarios.
In this scenario you can:
archive new prospect’s contacts: you will never lose them, and you can create new opportunities [GlipMe core feature]
trace an incoming request for quotation [posts feature]
trace the offer you send to the prospect [posts feature]
set a reminder to follow up [reminders feature]
be alerted and follow up the offer when it’s time to go on [reminders feature]
track services you sold to the contact [GlipMe core feature]
GlipMe has a lot of feature to support your business, and it’s not complicated and hard to use as many specific applications (eg. CRM).
Do you know you can update the photo of a contact using your phone?
Just enable GlipMe Sync, connect the phone, and edit the contact using your integrated address book feature. You can take a photo using the camera, or assign a saved image. You don’t need anything special to upload the photo and update data in your GlipMe address book. Just work as usual, GlipMe will help you in background 🙂
Sync is available for any smartphone, any platform. No app required: safe and reversible.
We are proud to announce that GlipMe 4.0 Beta is now public!
Version 4.0 is a maior upgrade of GlipMe technologies and services, and provides a new Web App with enhanced user experience. We will explore and discover in depth new features during next weeks.
This is a “Beta”, so it will take some time to fix bugs and little problems. If you have problem, please contact us using the “contact us” command available in your personal area, or send an email to support address.
LinkedIn is trying to close its users in a “social wall”. This is common to every big “social companies”, eg Facebook, that have created a closed garden, filled in with an aura of openness and sharing, then created a business based on users’ data. Now they are creating walls to close users (data) in an oligopoly of “your life manager”.
This is normal. This is one of the reasons because we didn’t trust in a this “Web social world” and in companies that live using our data.
So, what does this mean? Simply that LinkedIn and Facebook (together), the last month, have closed their APIs, that are the doors that has allowed other services to exchange data with them. This is not a big trouble for GlipMe users: we have not activated integrations with Facebook (for a lot of reasons), and we activated just an integration with LinkedIn that has not the goal to read or update contacts data. We are not a social sites aggregator, and we will not import data in users address book, if our users will not select and approve them. So the new LinkedIn wall will affect only a little service that we did provide to our user, and is not a a trouble. Other services will pay a lot to provide integrations, or will close, but this is not a problem for us and our users.
So, the lesson is: be care to trust this “Web social world”. Put your data where you will control them, and maybe where you buy a service with real money. If you buy that service by paying with your data, you didn’t find a great offer or service.
P.S. Walls fall. The strength of who builds a wall today is its weakness of tomorrow.
We have released to internal users the alfa-2 version of GlipMe 4.0. This new milestone will fix most of new features and GUI elements for the new incoming GlipMe. This will also be the last “alfa” in our development process, so final release is now closer.
Thank to our development team and to our testers 🙂
During last week we performed some upgrade task on Sync infrastructure. Data sync between GlipMe and mobile devices was not performed as usually.
Now Sync is working on the new infrastructure, and mobile devices will perform sync tasks without problem. Currently data will not updated more than once a day, but we’ll start again “realtime update” soon. Thanks for your patience.
GlipMe 4.0 “alfa” has been released to early users!
What is an “alfa”? Basically is a preview of the new version of GlipMe.
The 4.0 took us some time and really a lot of work, and this work is not already completed today. But now we have a working release that we’re happy to share with our users. We always make best efforts to work with our customer to create the best service, and apply any suggestion we receive.
GlipMe 4.0 will introduce a lot of new feature. New technologies will provide the best user experience and important features. Our italian design center is also working to create the best user interface.
