Contact information on the internet is unstructured and inconsistent. Finding contact information on an organisation's website consumes considerable amounts of time, data, and often requires significant user interaction. Contact information provided by search engines and social media platforms is neither open nor authoritative and is often incomplete and inaccurate.
The Contacts module can be used to store contact data for a person, group, organisation, department, employee, location or folder. Data can be stored hierarchically allowing organisations to store contact information for each of their locations, departments and employees.
Branch records can be used to navigate complex contact information, providing structured machine readable data to help navigate a call centre or support teams.
An example record is shown below.
