I (Patricia) have been using the Internet since probably 1992. I had an email address before that, but only started using the Internet in the early 90’s. I was such an early adopter that I remember doing banking with “Bay Bank Boston” using a 56K dialup and a DOS green screen (worked as well as the fancy online banking today).
So, I’m a long time user and because of that I have countless (literally) bookmarks and equally countless memories of many sites/information sources that I wish I had saved.
Fast forward to 2014. The visual, social web is the center of the Internet universe. Social sites like Pinterest are beautiful and provide visual cues when information is searched. So, how could I blend my need to organize information with the wonderful information cues you get from images, and how could I make it work more effectively for business?
Enter Clipparoo, a blend of bookmarks with pictures and images and an organization system—and an application that you can use with customers, colleges, family and prospects. You can share “Clippboards” with fellow project managers or family. Pull together a Clippboard to demonstrate to a client or, in a family matter, you could get multiple family members together to search for the right health care solution, job or school. There is even a folder and subfolder tree–just the way you’ve always organized. The way you use it is up to you, the ease of use was up to us.
In our company alone we figured we have saved three hours a week just on one specific task by all Clipping to the same Clippboard. And, the mobile version means that every time I see something I can Clipp it immediately and then don’t have to think about it again—or I alert a team member automatically that a new Clipp is in their Clipparoo shared content.
Don’t take my word for it. Try it yourself. It’s easy, it’s free and it just might change your information life. It did mine.
