What is Ofuz ?

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

The goal of Ofuz is to simplify the task of managing your contacts and related duties by means of our innovative collaboration features.

Ofuz is designed for small businesses. We made it very simple to use and quick to learn.

If you already use Email and Facebook, Ofuz will feel like a natural progression.

Ofuz makes it trivial to interact with all the people in your network, including prospects, customers, vendors, employees, and co-workers.

Ofuz integrates with your web site and email client, allowing you to create new contacts and notes automatically. Users that submit a form through your site will become contacts in your Ofuz account. Further, when you send an email to someone, he or she becomes your contact in Ofuz and their email is added to your notes.

We are now in private public beta.
