New Mobile Identity Toolkit from Vizibility to Help Expand Online Identity Management Platform
Vizibility Inc., recently gave a preview of its Mobile Identity Toolkit, which the company believes will be a strong addition to its current online identity management platform. The Mobile Identity Toolkit is being incorporated into popular social networking sites, career specific hubs as well as reputation management services that function virtually.
What this unprecedented mobile Web app will achieve is an integration of personal quick response codes (QR) into networking sites LinkedIn and Facebook (News - Alert). Pending a patent, this "social network connection pre-authorization" will allow consumers to embed their social graphs along with their personal Vizibility QR codes. These can then be put onto business cards or resumes or even marketing materials. They, of course, can be scanned into a mobile as well. With Vizibility's CommonConnections, social networks can now turn into real-time, reputation-enhancing tools that function in real time.
Besides CommonConnections, another simple-to-use management tool will be launched that will allow companies of all sizes to organize and share the online presence of their professionals. A number of accounts can be administered simultaneously from a single figure. As a management tool it will help in configuring as well as downloading QR codes, updating them and branding mobile business cards. One can also monitor how they are being used.
According to research by Mashable, around 14 million people in the U.S. scanned QR codes in June. In a release, James Alexander, Vizibility founder and CEO, said, “A growing number of professionals recognize the need to proactively control, organize and share their online identities and want to do so using savvy technologies like QR codes. Marketers need an easy way to manage the online brands of their professionals while ensuring a consistently branded mobile and PC experience. Now, for the first time, our identity management platform gives professionals and marketers the tools they need to excel."
Currently this Mobile Identity Tool Kit will be sold individually to professionals and to organizations as a solution. This is available beginning Friday, Sept. 16, from Vizibility. From there it will also be available with the company's expanding network of partners. Professional packaged for individuals (ProPack) will be available at $199.95 a year. Company solution versions will be at $499.95 per year.Calvin Azuri is a contributing editor for TMCnet. To read more of Calvin’s articles, please visit his columnist page.
