With the imminent launch of the new communication manager, ranjeR, on the Playstore, we figured it was time to start sharing information on what ranjeR will do for you. Over the past year, we have been building a truly unique application that not only integrates features that currently exist in the marketplace, but also introduces some new ones that will simplify your life on your mobile platform (and your non-mobile one as well).
Information related to individuals and businesses continues to expand at an exponential rate but our time is still limited to 24 hours a day. How do you keep up? One way is to just put your head in the sand like the proverbial ostrich and just ignore everyone and everything. But realistically, who can really afford to do that nowadays unless they want to live on a remote island and go back to our hunter-gatherer roots?
About two years ago, we recognized this increased burden that we voluntarily place on ourselves and that keeping up was getting more difficult and time consuming. From social media to spam, we are left to constantly manage all our access points, diminishing our free time in the process. Given this burden is voluntarily accepted by all of us, our initial vision was to give clients the ability to disconnect once in a while when needed. Basically, the ability to say I’m unavailable and I mean it. Which leads us to the first unique feature of ranjeR.
ranjeR builds on the basic contact management premise with the ability to inform your contacts (by the way, the ranjeR user is called Me and Me’s contacts are called Yous, pretty simple) of how you are currently reachable through a pretty simple user interface. Essentially, red means not available and green means available and a user can specify how they are available. – i.e a home number, work email, home email, text, Facebook, etc. or any combination thereof. This means that a user can inform all their contacts that they’re temporarily available on a different phone number while travelling or that their work email no longer exists as they left their job – there are an infinite amount of uses and it’s all done through a simple, yet powerful and effective interface. And with the group functionality, a user can post their status as available for friends and unavailable for their work colleagues.
Simple math proves the benefits of ranjeR – Look at vacation time. 2 weeks a year of uninterrupted down-time to unwind, de-stress and relax. Our inability to inform people we are unavailable – essentially you can contact me but don’t expect a response – has basically cost us 336 hours a year of stress free downtime. And ranjeR will give it back!
Additionally, ranjeR automatically updates the user’s contacts with any updated information the user provides. So if a user changes their email address or their phone number or any contact point (including social media aliases), the user’s contacts will automatically be informed. You no longer need to send out a blast email or text or update to tell people. Just change it on ranjeR and everyone you are connected to will know.
Stay posted to learn more. And remember, don’t be a stranjeR, be on ranjeR!
