With the busy lives people live nowadays, at some point it can be hard to keep track of everything. This is especially true for someone with a daily life that includes many professional meetings: at some point it can be hard not only to be on schedule with those meetings, but also to know everything about the people the meeting is with.
One obvious solution for this is to get a personal assistant, that could track all those informations and keep you posted on it, telling you what there is to know about the people you are meeting next. But what if there was an even easier solution, much cheaper and much more portable? Would it be interesting? Then meet Charlie, the app that does exactly that.
Nominated as one of the best new startups in Chicago, Charlie is an app that, thanks to its integration with several calendar tools, sends users a detailed one-sheet with information on the people they are meeting next.
The information on the sheet includes, even though it is not limited to, who they are, what they do, what their interests are, as well as a thorough summary on their company. All this is achieved by combing through hundreds of sources, like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or LinkedIn, for example.
If you want to take a look on what Charlie can do, its website offers two examples on two different people: Niraj Shah, CEO and co-founder at Wayfair, and Leah Busque, founder and CEO at TaskRabbit. From these profiles, one can easily obtain information like their biography, news about them, interests and hobbies, social updates, as well as key information about the companies they are currently associated with.
Charlie is a very easy to use, interesting and useful companion to anyone living a life where meetings are constant, constantly searching, comprising and presenting, in a very neat and organized way, (almost) all there is to know about the people you will be meeting, so be sure to give it a go by downloading it for free from the App Store.
