Accordia: Visualize Contact Relationships
Accordia is a search and visualization engine designed to help users find relationships between their clients more quickly.
If you look at the online demo you can see that the architects came up with some very interesting ways of displaying relationships. It looks similar to Digg’s Swarm, but instead of displaying votes, it displays relationships between people. So if two of your clients happen to work at the same company, a line is drawn between their two nodes on a chart area. If two clients are family members, then a very strong line is displayed between them.
Since the product just launched in September 9, though, there’s not a lot to find out from the website. For example, the site says that “Accordia can connect to most CRM systems” but it doesn’t mention exactly which ones. Nonetheless it’s an interesting way to look at relationships between people. If you’re a sales person who thrives on making those faint connections between your clients to get the extra credibility, Accordia’s for you.
