Contact Data Goes Stale by the Tens of Millions Each Year
We all have contacts with data that is outdated. Phone numbers have changed. Email addresses are no longer used. People have moved. Sometimes it is ourselves who have our contact details change
When we change our own contact details, sending out our new details to every contact is cumbersome and posting it online for people to update themselves is a privacy risk (and cumbersome for them). When our contacts change their details, manually entering their new information or simply saving updated contact information one by one is equally as cumbersome. The result of all of this is that contact data is often fragmented and out of date.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 32.4 million people moved in the U.S. in 2018 (https://www.census.gov/library/stories/2019/04/moves-from-south-west-dominate-recent-migration-flows.html ). That a lot of new address data to send to family and friends, not to mention all the phone numbers that change. While iOS and Android have features that can help with updating new contact information, manual steps are still involved and contact data remains out of date.
AddressCentral solves these problems by providing a contact management platform that serves as a one-stop-shop for people to update their information and have it sent to all the family and friends that need it. What’s more, contacts are initially established to determine what contact data they can see. For example, let’s say you move, but you don’t want everybody in your contact book to get your new address. You update your new address in AddressCentral and then all your AddressCentral contacts designated to receive your new address are the only ones who instantly get it
What else is great about AddressCentral is that it is free with no ads and is designed for privacy. The live contacts app on Android is also free (iOS coming at the next opportunity but can be used on iOS devices without an app).
