February 24, 2009 DubMeNow is a new technology that allows you to instantly exchange (via text or email) contact information (email, phone, company, address, title, etc.) from mobile phone to mobile phone. Big deal? Yes, because it enables you to exchange contact information without having to give out your mobile number or email address. You can also exchange contact information with multiple people at once and you'll never forget where you met someone again because it remembers the location and address. Not yet convinced? DUB loads contact data directly into the user's mobile address book and automatically updates their address book whenever your information changes. It takes contact management to a new level and it's available now!
DUB eliminates the need to swap, save, enter or update any more business card data. You can also 'tag' or note information about the contact and see when and where you met on Google Maps.

“Our goal was to develop a tool that would allow people to easily keep track of their business and personal contacts,” said Manoj Ramnani, Founder and CEO of DubMeNow. “We developed a better way to communicate, network and exchange contact information – eliminating the need to keep track of business cards and then ultimately do something with them.”
DubMeNow partnered with Microsoft, Google, Salesforce.com, RIM and LinkedIn on the technology.
“DUB is a tremendous tool and we’re excited to have it on Windows Mobile and Microsoft Dynamics CRM platforms. I was impressed with how easily DUB integrated into our environments,” said Dave Drach, Managing Director of Microsoft’s Emerging Business Team.
How does DUB work?
Using the DUB application on your mobile phone, simply invite the contact using their email, mobile number or DUB ID. Upon acceptance, your contact data loads directly into their address book and vice versa. DUB syncs with Outlook and CRM applications like Salesforce and Siebel.
The contact data is always kept current. Any changes you make to your DUB card (email, phone, job, address, etc.) are automatically updated to your DUB contacts and any changes your DUB contacts make are instantly updated to your address book. DUB contacts are simply always current.
A feature rich version of DUB is currently available on all smart phones, including BlackBerry, GPhone, iPhone and Windows Mobile. Any mobile phone with text messaging can also use DUB via text messaging.
