One of my friends who works at Ogilvie (advertising agency) in South Africa described this 'as the most useful tool he has ever used'. I love that this app exists to encourage IRL connection, a lost art today's world is sorely in need of rediscovering!

Pros:

Leads to IRL connection

Cons:

Can't think of any

IRL connections... Never heard of them. I am obviously too old;) I just like doing things in real life. Glad to hear your friend has had such a useful experience with Names & Faces, Marina. Ogilvy have been a great client.

Integration with other social networks in companies should be considered. If you're marketing the tool to the South African market, why does your video have an American accent?

Pros:

Clean look, easy to use, and useful

Cons:

How would this fit in with other social networks used by large corporates, such as Yammer?

Founder & CEO of Names & Faces
Thanks Chiara. We're pretty convinced that the world doesn't need another messaging tool or another social network. And we certainly don't need another inbox to check for messages. If you use Yammer in your company, your employees' Yammer handles will appear on their Names & Faces profiles. Tapping on a Yammer handle from within Names & Faces will simply bounce you directly to the Yammer app to start your conversation in the channel you already use. The same goes for Whatsapp, email, phone calls, Slack, Skype for Business, etc.

coming features like security will be really sticky

Pros:

epic UI

Cons:

hard to articulate why this should replace other directories. it should.

Founder & CEO of Names & Faces
Hey Justin, From what we've seen in the market, most directories today are simply byproducts of other larger systems designed to do other things: HR systems designed for HR, IT systems designed for IT, or payroll systems designed for payroll. The directory has always been an afterthought. Based on the belief that it's what happens between people that really matters, we'd like to change that.

CEO, Polymorph

We're a remote first company, and as we've grown, it has become more and more difficult for the team to really know each other. This is an invaluable tool to help with communication, and good communication is the cornerstone of any good company and team.

Pros:

Does one seemingly simple thing really well. Nothing else, no confusion of features

Cons:

Can't think of any

Love the simply! I’m over the apps that promise everything but deliver little deep functional value to one major bug bear!

Pros:

I’d absolutely recommend this app, because it’s Super simple and specific!! It’s actuall that one thing. Brilliantly!

Cons:

Would like to see how I get form Names and faces into Asana or Slack.

I used the app the same day I downloaded it, with a need to get hold of a handful of colleagues I didn’t have the contact details for, what a pleasure to not have to bother others for these details or log into my laptop.

We‘ve also had more than 10% increase in staff Recently across various locations and to get familiar with who is who is extremely easy with. Names & Faces.

Pros:

Quick response

Cons:

Cannot find any.

Founder & CEO of Names & Faces
That is great to hear. Thanks, Margot. We're regularly told by HR departments and receptionists that after implementing Names & Faces they get far fewer calls from people in the office looking for contact details of their colleagues. Believe it or not, the most common response we've got when we ask people "How do you find your colleagues' telephone numbers?" is trawling through old emails, scrolling to the footer and seeing if they have their contact details there!

Not only am I able to find names of colleagues easily now, I am also remembering them more easily. Somehow seeing the written name with the face works for my brain

Pros:

Super simple. Totally intuitive. Saves me from those 'forgot that guys name' moments!

Cons:

None yet

Founder & CEO of Names & Faces
It appears you have a good brain, Shirley. Thanks for the comment.

Awesome product

Pros:

Super easy to find that lesser known colleague so you can prevent embarrassing name-forgetting situations. One touch dial as well.

Cons:

None

Despite best efforts, it's impossible to place every face around the office, and as we've distributed teams around the country, some colleagues are only seen every now and then. This app and it's well structured directly solves the awkwardness by allowing a quick recap before a meeting or site-visit, and genuinely improves confidence for everyone.

Pros:

A quick, to-the-point directory, elegantly solving a very real problem. Relationships can't flourish while you're guessing their first name!

Cons:

None.
