Personnel change and contact information change news based on public profile information in Eight

Personnel and contact information change news comes from four different sources:

  1. Personnel change information provided by Nikkei Telecom
  2. Personnel change information provided by Diamond, Inc.
  3. Public profiles on Eight
  4. Business cards input by your colleagues.

 

Here we will explain about the third information source, the Eight public profile.

 

Summary

We send out news about department or title changes based on information retrieved from those people's Eight profiles made public on the internet.

The business card management service for individuals, Eight, like other social network services, has functions for users to manage their own profiles. By putting your own business card into Eight, it is easy to update your own profile, and you can also exchange that information online without needing to exchange paper business cards.

From this Eight profile, Sansan can retrieve only the public portion on the Internet, and then use it to distribute news to Sansan clients about personnel changes and contact information changes relating to these people.

 

Characteristics

The department and title change news that will be sent out is information coming from all people using Eight, regardless of their titles.

Sansan already had a function for distributing personnel change news based on information provided by Nikkei Telecom and Diamond, Inc, however, this information centered on executives. With Eight, as the people using it for business card management range from executives to those on the ground, a larger range of personnel change information can now be delivered to those using Sansan.

 

How the news is sent out

A portion of the profile information made public on the internet by the Eight users themselves will be retrieved, and this will be sent to Sansan users as personnel change and contract information change news. Only some information on the Eight profile of that user will be sent out; other information will not be sent out as news.

For more information about conditions for informing, please see here.
