"Thinking Outside the Inbox"

Listen to Briefing from 02/21/10

Interview Summary:

As the world moves increasingly online, how can the real-estate industry bring its inherently very physical market to the web - and vice versa. While wikis, social networking profiles and other Web tools are increasingly reliable and relevant to the business day-to-day, email remains the go-to "killer app" for management of business needs, customer interactions and work-flow management. The problem is that email isn't always a great way to connect, coordinate and get things done--especially for real estate professionals. In this session, panelists Yori Nelken (CEO of TimeBridge) and Bay Area realtor, Maureen Kennedy, will discuss how to leverage the best suite of productivity web tools to replace email as a principle vehicle for productivity, and bringing your specific business online.

Yori Nelken founded TimeBridge in 2005 to make life easier for busy people by bridging the best of the desktop with the rich experience of web services. In 1997, Yori founded Banter to help companies deal effectively with the explosion of email communication. Banter built award-winning CRM and contact center solutions that automated processes to improve productivity, cut costs, and empower customers and information workers. Now part of IBM, Banter's products deliver dramatic efficiency improvements in many Fortune 100 contact centers today, including Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Before founding Banter, Yori directed engineering for Octel Communications, where he pioneered the evolution of IVR development tools used for integrated e-commerce applications.

Yori has researched, designed and implemented expert systems to improve workflow and increase automation since the early 80s. He holds degrees in Business Administration and Computer Sciences from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
