New, premium offering’s advanced data science automatically tracks all of a user’s business interactions with each of their clients and prospects across email, phone calls, meetings, social media and notes.
SOMERVILLE, Mass. – March 3, 2015 – Cloze, Inc. today announced Cloze® Pro, a new relationship management application for independent professionals and small business owners. Cloze Pro eliminates the tedious tasks required from traditional relationship management tools by automatically tracking a user’s complete history of interactions with each of their contacts across email, phone calls, meetings, social media and notes. The application uses data science to learn who is important and prompt users when it is time to nurture a relationship. Cloze Pro is immediately available to try for free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on the web at www.cloze.com. Users can subscribe to the premium features for $19.99 per user per month or $159.99 per user year.
“We all know relationships are important, but in some professions they are critical and can make or break success,” said Dan Foody, Founder and CEO of Cloze. “But, frankly most relationship management tools have complexity that only a big business can love. They’re empty vessels that require lots of care and feeding. The way big companies get around these limitations is by throwing people at the problem. They build teams of analysts to comb through data to figure out what matters and hire staff to key-in the data no one else wants to enter. It shouldn’t have to come to that. We built Cloze to eliminate this time-consuming busy work. It’s completely automatic.”
Cloze Pro customers are benefiting from the app’s time-saving features and smart functionality.
“My relationships are essential, but with my contacts spread across many different tools it was tough to stay in touch with everyone”, said Daniel Larsen, CTO, Investment Adviser Representative of Prime Wealth Strategies, LLC. “So I was searching for something to help me stay close with all of the important people in my life. I tried many tools along the way and found they made me do all the work. Then I found Cloze. What really hooked me is that Cloze automatically logs all of my phone calls. I’ve never seen any product do this before. Because of Cloze I can now automatically keep track of everything in one place – all my phone calls, emails exchanged, client meetings and interactions on social media.”
Cloze pulls information from a user’s email, calendars, social media, phone and notes to automatically create one, consolidated view of every person and company they know. This profile view includes contact details and their complete history with each of their contacts including emails back and forth, calls together, meetings, notes on Evernote, documents exchanged and interactions on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
With everything in one place, Cloze leverages advanced data science to figure out who is important and keeps them top of mind. Cloze will also remind users to reach out to a contact and refresh a fading relationship. Cloze algorithms have been trained and fine-tuned with the analysis of billions of messages sent among hundreds of millions of contacts
