Identity Management from Vizibility goes mobile with NFC

Vizibility Inc., provider of the online identity management platform for professionals and the enterprise, today announced the first-ever NFC Mobile Wallet Card as a standard feature for premium subscriptions. The NFC (Near Field Communication) beta program that was announced at the South By Southwest® (SXSW®) Conference in March is now closed. Learn more at http://nfc.vizibility.com.

Vizibility helps businesses and professionals control, share and track their professional online presence on the Web or on the go. Vizibility mobile business card users can now use NFC in addition to QR codes to wirelessly exchange contact information, share hand-picked profiles, video bios and other curated online content, view connections they have in common on LinkedIn and Facebook, download vCards, and track when and where their business cards are scanned. Through Vizibility’s patented “Find Me in Google” feature, users can even pick and rank the Google search results they want to show first and find out who is Googling them.

It has never been more critical for professionals to have an easily accessible mobile online presence. More than half of all local searches now originate on mobile devices. Facebook has 500 million users who have accessed their site with a mobile device. LinkedIn reported that mobile accounted for 22 percent of unique visitors during the quarter, up 8 percent from the same period last year. However, most companies do not yet have mobile-friendly websites, and today’s social networking sites want users to download proprietary apps that make instant networking difficult. Vizibility’s mobile business card is an HTML5 Web app and “just works” in the mobile browser with most QR code scanning apps and NFC-enabled smartphones on iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile. Vizibility is the first company to leverage the potential of NFC for mobile personal branding.

“The ubiquity of smartphones and growing popularity of mobile wallet services all underscore the importance of establishing and controlling a mobile presence online,” noted James Alexander, Vizibility founder and CEO (http://viz.me/james). “Credit cards aren’t the only thing we keep in our wallets today. Business cards and other networking tools will also find their place in our mobile wallets. Vizibility’s personal mobile branding solution is affordable, enterprise-friendly and sends the message that you and your firm are hip and innovative.”
