ALL-STATE LEGAL, a leader in engraving and printing, has acquired Vizibility, the company behind the popular vizCard mobile business card platform for professionals.
"As the nation's premier engraver and printer for professional services firms, we see business cards as the first form of mobile marketing," said Joe Fuzak, President of ALL-STATE LEGAL. "But with sales of smartphones outselling PCs by 2-to-1, it is time to marry print and pixels. This is an example of how ALL-STATE LEGAL is redefining the traditional business card.
Not only can a small QR code be printed on either side of the card, customers will also get a unique URL to embed in email signatures, text messages and other online sites that will bring up their digital business cards on any device. "Vizibility is a personalized mobile business card, or vizCard, which can be easily shared.
Vizibility's founder and Division President James Alexander describes the hosted service as, "the third side of the business card. Vizibility is an engaging, mobile identity management solution that makes it a snap to download vCards, view common LinkedIn connections, set up appointments and share hand-picked profiles, videos and other online content right from the printed business card. We can even connect all of your professionals' mobile business cards into a mobile directory which helps to instantly validate the deep expertise of your people and your firm."
Vizibility is fully integrated into ALL-STATE LEGAL's online print portal providing customers with a smooth, unified process to dynamically create and update mobile business cards and choose to add QR codes to their business card templates. This seamless solution eliminates duplication of effort and delivers a low cost of ownership.
Vizibility mobile business cards are now available in two simple options: the vizCard and vizCard Pro. A bundle of unlimited vizCards, called a vizCard Pack, is available for $999 per year and includes a custom logo, vCard downloading (works even on the iPhone), CardFollow™ for vCard updates, a powerful mobile directory connecting a firm's vizCards and an online dashboard for easy administration.
The vizCard Pro is $79 per year per user and includes everything in the vizCard plus CommonConnections™ to LinkedIn, unlimited links to online content, full metrics on scans, and the patented "Google Me" button with search results monitoring. For $499 per year, both the vizCard and vizCard Pro accounts can upgrade to include robust enterprise-class features such as a custom domain name, a direct URL to the Mobile Directory, auto-redirect of mobile business cards for former employees, telephone support and more.To learn more about traditional printed and mobile business cards, visit www.aslegal.com/vizibility.
