Connected was founded in 2010 by Sachin Rekhi. Today, Rekhi is the current company CEO. The application was intended to provide a valuable contact management service that went beyond simply storing information to enhancing the way the user managed their relationships with those on their contact list.
Connected has added a number of features that enable the user to stay aware of recent events and related details for each contact. The user’s contact list is automatically updated by Connected and they can see items taken from social network profiles and other resources. The application can also remind the user to touch base with a contact after a specified amount of time (chosen by the user).
The Connected website uses a very sleek, professional design that works well for individuals and professionals.
