Back to the roots - new Closr Website

Since 2015 when we started Cloapp, we’ve always had the vision of helping people to remember important things, connected to the people they meet. It can be simple things like name and age of someone’s child, favorite football team or an old story from growing up together.

But of course also things associated with business.

This is what drove us to launch the Closr app back then, and this is still our main drive. The Closr Dashboard (Closr for Business) is an extension of this, and more - for companies and teams.

We believe working with sales should be engaging, fun and rewarding. Since we couldn't find anything delivering on that, we created Closr Dashboard. It’s based on our own gamification platform and includes automated sales coaching through push, mail and even through third party such as Slack.

In short:
The Closr app will always help you to remember those specific things about people you meet and keep a relationship timeline of all your interactions with that person. For yourself. Used together in a team with Closr Dashboard, it’s also about team activity, goals and awards.

Our new website (www.closr.io, launched last week) shifts the focus back to where we came from, but at the same time emphasizes all the good we can do for you as a company when using the app together with our beautiful dashboard.

What ever happened to Nearby?

Yes, what ever happened to Nearby? The networking service we launched in Closr back in 2016, and was later removed from the app in 2017 at the same time we launched Closr Dashboard.

Well, it's soon back again. But in an app of its own. Meet https://nearby.me

Truth is we never really stopped working on Nearby.

But we needed to fix a couple of burning issues for it to really work as good as we wanted. First of all, you can not have a business card app that forces the card receiver to also use the app. That was the fundamental issue to solve or Nearby would just be a stripped down, bad copy of relations you already have on LinkedIn, Facebook or whatever.

After working with this the last year, we have now gone back to the basics. We are trying to mimic as much as possible the way it works when giving and receiving good old paper business cards. But with a twist.

We've added information from 150+ social networks to gather a total of more than 100 data points to enrich the cards from people you meet. It's not just only about giving your card out, it's about remembering who you met, where you met them and what you talked about.

It's also about automatically finding ice breakers, interesting topics, stuff you share. All this to make your first encounter and first conversation as smooth as possible.

This is basically everything that happens before you get the contact card in to Closr and start building on that relationship timeline that will get you all the way to close that deal.

Nearby is launching in May 2018.
