Hierarchy matters in many corporate settings, but understanding which employees report to which executives can be challenging without a strong organizational framework. Card.biz is a web-based tool that organizations can use to create public or private company directories.
Try Card.biz for free by connecting to your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Google account. Start by giving your directory a name, then customize your directory by adding a logo and selecting unique colors. As the directory admin, you can invite your colleagues to participate by creating their own “cards.” Cards serve as miniature profiles, providing other users with basic information about each employee, including a photo, title, contact details, resume information, and links to social networking accounts. Card.biz also lets you import information for your directory from Gmail, Outlook, or your address book as a .CSV file.
Once you’ve selected the “boss” in your directory (likely, your company’s CEO or President), Card.biz will go to work handling any remaining structural issues. The application works with matrix organization to create “picture-centric” displays. Make your directory public and share it on your website, or keep it private by adding a password that only your employees know. Card.biz offers a dedicated smartphone interface, allowing users to find their colleagues’ phone numbers or email addresses when they’re outside the office.
