If you are a relationship person, you’ll love Gist because it tells you “more about who you know.” In short, Gist defines a new category of social CRM. You become more productive in preparing for meetings and coming up with reasons to reach out to those on your fringe contact list. Business communication for you will evolve based on your preparedness and your CRM will become more personal. I’ve been using Gist for months now and it has opened new opportunities completely out of left field.
Gist has so many features to list here and today they turn the corner in open beta. Funded recently with nearly $7MM from Vulcan Ventures and Foundry Group, Gist is setting a new standard for relationship productivity.
Disclosure: I am an adviser to Gist’s management team.
