Smartcasual makes business networking 180% easier, more efficient

Smartcasual is about to launch, and it looks like it could make business networking infinitely less painful and time consuming. Genius!



Smartcasual pairs you with nearby, available pros

The phrase “the devil’s in the details” couldn’t be more accurate when applied to business networking. Getting two professionals in a room together at a mutually beneficial time in a mutually beneficial location is the majestic unicorn of business scenarios: as much as we wish it were real, it simply isn’t. Though it has quite a large tech support base in general, networking is still quite a process.

Smartcasual simplifies this jaw-grinding process exponentially, providing you with contact details, time of availability, and potential meeting place before you can make an appointment.

This pre-molded period can be selected for the current day, the subsequent day, or the day after that. Rather than screwing around with comparing schedules and agreeing on a location, your choices are reduced to either “I can make it” or “I can’t make it.”

Adding in a dash of LinkedIn

The way it works is simple: your professional of choice adds times that they are able to meet, locations agreeable to them, and their LinkedIn profile. You can research them, double-check their field of interest and resume, and then decide whether or not to meet on their terms.

This app clearly puts the power in the hands of the professional, which will potentially prove to be less stressful overall for all parties involved.

Digging deeper: A freelancer’s dream

Smartcasual has a special capacity to fill in the world of freelancing, as well. Posting a professional profile puts work back on your timetable—a novel concept in the world of contract work—and, being as this is a fairly passive service, you’re essentially casting a line out and waiting for a bite.

The addition of the LinkedIn profile consolidates all of your necessary information into one location, as well; it’s everything a freelancer needs to be efficient, desirable, and—best of all—hirable.

Smartcasual is currently awaiting release, but stay on the lookout—it’s in its final development stages at the time of this writing.
