Moncton's Clarity is a service that connects entrepreneurs and advisors from all over the world and founder Dan Martell has announced two new features designed to make giving and getting advice easier and more convenient than ever.
Up first, scheduling of calls. In response to demand from Clarity users and in an effort to fill a void left behind by the shutdown of Montreal-born Tungle, Clarity now handles scheduling (Tungle was acquired by RIM last year).
Those seeking advice can now suggest their availability at the time of requesting a call. If the time doesn’t work with the Clarity advisor, new times may be suggested until a match is found. Email invitations and reminders of the call time are connected through Clarity.
To complement the scheduling feature, Clarity has improved call quality and connectivity by integrating conference capabilities. As calls are scheduled, Clarity now sends both the entrepreneur and advisor details including a conference line and access code to connect the call. This feature enables group calling in the event that a specific conversation would be best suited for a group environment.
"Sharing the advice of our Clarity experts to a bigger audience and the addition of scheduling were no-brainers," explains Martell. "Call requests and connections are going extremely well, but we wanted to make it easier for our users around the globe to connect and share on a time that works for all. We really want the users experience to be magical."
Clarity calls can be free, paid or in support of any not-for-profit organization. Either way, the process is the same: find someone you want to speak with, request a call, and Clarity makes the connection.
