For any business, networking is a key to success. Events and conventions are a great place to network for business, find a new contractor, supplier, or resource, or get advice from a mentor.
Business cards are often exchanged and then subsequently forgotten about. Sometimes, the events are so large and busy that a meeting a relevant person may be missed.
Now, with Mobile apps, users can swap business cards by bringing their mobiles into contact with each other using BUMP functionality.

  • How a Mobile App makesNetworking at events easier? 10/28/2011
  • Introduction For any business, networking is a key to success. Events and conventions are a great place to network for business, find a new contractor, supplier, or resource, or get advice from a mentor. Business cards are often exchanged and then subsequently forgotten about. Sometimes, the events are so large and busy that a meeting a relevant person may be missed. 10/28/2011
  • …Continued Mobile apps have come of age and for the first time in India, by downloading an app on their iPhones or android devices participants at an event will be able not just to swap business cards by bringing their mobiles into contact with the person they meet, but they will also be able to view other participants in their category, search for mentors, schedule meetings and view meeting requests from other participants. 10/28/2011 View slide
  • …Continued Perhaps it is only apt that such an innovative product is being released at TiEcon Delhi 2011, a premier Asian event for entrepreneurs being organized by The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) from September 30th to October 1st, 2011 at New Delhi. TiE Connect, which is a mobile app developed specifically for this event by TechAhead, the Mobile Application Partner for the event, will help entrepreneurs exchange contact information and network with each other easily. The application for android is available for download at https://market.android.com/search?q=Tiecon+Meet&so=1&c=apps 10/28/2011 View slide

  • Procedure of TiEcon App Once the application is downloaded on to the mobile phone, the user can enter information such as the name, contact number, email address and company, and save it. This information goes into the iCard, which can then be transferred to a contact by just holding the mobile in your hand and bringing it into contact with the other person’s mobile. With this process, there is no danger of business cards being misplaced as it is stored on the mobile phone and can be accessed at any time using the app. 10/28/2011
  • …Continued TiE Connect also has a range of other useful features. For instance, an entrepreneur can use the application to search and select other participants by category (mentor, investor, partner, service provider, and prospective team member), industry (BPO, clean technology, education, engineering, HR recruitment and many others) or person name. Similarly, there is a Request for Meeting feature that allows the user to select a person by industry, category or name, and send a meeting request by inputting the date and time. 10/28/2011
  • …Continued Once a person gets a meeting request on his mobile phone, he has the option of accepting or ignoring the request. If a meeting request is accepted, it shows up on the list of scheduled meetings to help the user manage his time better and to prevent overlap of meetings. Until a request is accepted or ignored, it shows up on the Pending Requests list. 10/28/2011
  • …Continued Using TiE Connect, entrepreneurs who are attending the two day mega event, TiEcon 2011 at New Delhi will be able to network more efficiently with other participants as it allows them to search the app database to find the people they want to meet and send meeting requests without having to meet the person face to face and be formally introduced. This will help them plan their schedule better so that they can also benefit from the insightful sessions that are part of the agenda of the event. Some of the most accomplished thinkers & practitioners are taking part in TiEcon, which is aimed at recognizing the importance of entrepreneurship in India as it has become a mainstream activity that has had a powerful impact on society. 10/28/2011
  • CEO Speaks For TechAhead, the development of this application has been a matter of pride. In the words of Vikas Kaushik, CEO, “The release of TiE Connect is a moment of glory for all of us at TechAhead and a vindication of the execution capability of our team. This is the first time that such an app is being used at an event in India, and as a pioneer in the field of outsourced application development, we feel privileged to have received the opportunity to showcase our innovative app at a platform where fellow entrepreneurs can appreciate it.” 10/28/2011
