At WorldMate we’ve always understood that business travel is about meeting people, and we're extremely proud to announce that you can now connect the World’s most powerful business travel assistant to LinkedIn; the world’s best business network to see where See when you will be in the same city as your business connections and where your professional network is traveling.
This is perfect for when you are going to a meet a few business contacts, some of whom you haven’t met before. Their names and backgrounds are a little fuzzy. You know you’d have an edge if it was all clear in your brain. Maybe it’s in the email conversations, maybe not. Either way you don’t really have time to look through it all on your phone.
Or maybe this situation. You’re traveling to a city you aren’t too familiar with to attend a conference. You know there are a few more leads to be followed and contacts to meet, but you don’t know how to find them. Did the buyer you met a few months ago work in Chicago or Cleveland? You can’t figure it out, so you find yourself eating dinner alone when, with a bit more information, it could have been a business dinner.
WorldMate with LinkedIn makes both of these uncomfortable business travel situations a thing of the past. Now you can search for your LinkedIn contacts from your current location, or in a city of your choice, view their full profiles and send them messages, all from your Blackberry.
On your BlackBerry:
See who is around in a destination city: WorldMate users have the WorldMate icon, WorldMate users currently traveling also have the airplane icon. Users with no icon aren't yet WorldMate users and you can only see their default home location -fix that by inviting them!
