PFONR (pronounced \fō’nar\) - for real-life business and/or pleasure networking in real time, all on your Android Phone.
Pfonr - designed by networking professionals as your very own Android Phone ‘life-networking’ tool to manage both your professional and/or personal networking life, all under a single login.
Human interaction is driven by close-contact networking -- whether professionally for business or personally for social and/or dating reasons – it’s just the level of each of these elements that varies in the day -- for anyone.
Pfonr's mobile geo-scanning technology provides real people, in real life situations, the ability to assess their local networking environment in real-time. Pfonr feeds back only the essential information required to facilitate interaction and create professional or personal opportunities with the people nearby.
Key data fed back might be: who is around you, what those people look like, where those people work and their role, and how close those people are to you -- all presented simply on your Android Phone to give you the insight you need to decide who to approach or connect with at that moment in time. What you do with the information and how you act upon it is up to you!
Pfonr allows you to control the details you broadcast, making it suitable for:
• students who have Android Phones but previously not business cards;
• professionals who network from sun up till bedtime;
• socialites in bars looking to find love;
• newbies in a new city looking to meet people and make friends; or
• just general everyday use by anyone curious enough to wonder who is around them
Pfonr can be locked ‘permanently’ in business mode for corporate or government use, if needed.
Pfonr enables you to:
• be better informed on the people around you;
• approach people in real time and get connected more easily and efficiently than before;
• send messages to Pfonr users without exchange of personal information;
• rapidly and safely gather single or multiple professional or personal digital contact cards, reducing the burden on the environment;
• note whom, where and when you first met any of your Pfonr contacts, both manually or automatically;
• organize and search all your Pfonr contacts in your own portable, interactive, live CRM;
• see whom out of the people around you might be single or not;
• gain insight into what the people around you are thinking or why they are there;
and much more coming soon…
Importantly, Pfonr uses Bluetooth LE, does not drain your battery and currently operates independently of all other professional and social networking platforms. PFONR relies ONLY on you, your Android Phone and other users with Android Phones approximately within 100 meters of you.
With Pfonr on your Android Phone, you have an "extra sensory perception" super power. We think it’s insane and has some cool applications, which we’re working on.
