Los Angeles-based Meanwise, a free app offering a live résumé format for business professionals in creative fields such as Design, Music, Film, Photography, Sports, Tech and more, has announced the official release of its business networking and career-building platform, now available at the App Store for iOS mobile systems.
“We’ve spent many months developing a digital alternative to the traditional CV in a social application that’s connective and supportive,” said Meanwise CEO Hilal Agil, who founded the company in Los Angeles with fellow Maldivian Mohamed Shamheed. “We are introducing the next generation of personal promotion for creative professionals.”
The company is also set to introduce augmented reality-powered Visual Search to the app this month, using a phone’s camera and viewport to discover and connect with other Meanwise users by simply pointing their device.
Meanwise’s platform is unique in that it establishes job seekers’ qualifications on a highly-visual stage, using a Blockchain-based rating system (smart.credits) that validates users’ talents and skills using data from verified independent critics, educational institutions, employers and other industry sources.
“Meanwise brilliantly stands out as an efficient tool for artists and creatives looking for a live, continuously-evolving alternative - or in addition - to existing professional online networks like LinkedIn,” said Agil.
“The combination of the smart.credits rating system, our CryptoID secure authentication system and the groundbreaking AR-powered visual search sounds like something that we've only seen in the movies and not yet adapted in mainstream tech… the future is officially here.”
