Names & Faces is a visual employee directory that solves a problem experienced by everyone from the CEO to the intern. How do I get to know the people around me? How do I get context for where they fit in. And how do I get in touch when I need to?
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 connectionCons:
Can't think of any
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 usefulCons:
How would this fit in with other social networks used by large corporates, such as Yammer?
Companies are going through an amazing transformation in task efficiency, global teamwork and talent optimization. Names & Faces is the perfect tool to support the industry 4.0 workforce. This company is going to do great things as they are taking the very best marketing principles and applying them to organizational behavior.Pros:

We have been working with Names & Faces for many years, from when it started out in a book format, before a mobile apps were even a thing. The company has moved with technology and kept ahead, always offering clients the very latest that is available. Would highly recommend.Pros:
Simple, easy to useCons:
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 featuresCons:
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:
Cannot find any.
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:
