We all have a number of contacts but how do you keep track of them all? Aside from an "old school" roledex, you could use the Microsoft Outlook or some other contact management software. 37signals silently slipped itself into the online contact manager arena with Highrise. Highrise is a simple contact management product which could be ideal for small businesses. At first glance it looks like Highrise could offer social networking like functionality in business context.
According to the Highrise web site the product was built because:
"Your address book doesn’t do enough. Traditional CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software tries to do too much. That’s why we built Highrise. It’s the just-right, more thoughtful way to keep track of the people, conversations, and tasks that are the lifelines of your business."
In taking a quick look at the product it appeared to offer the classic 37signals design elements which makes it extremely intuitive and easy to use. 37signals offers a Highrise product tour that walks through a number of key features. Additionally, Chris Messina offers a number screen-shots of the Highrise product. Give it a try to get keep your contacts organized and let me know what you think.
