I am very proud to announce that we released our first official product on Monday this week. alumLINK is an alumni networking and management app aimed at affinity groups. I am in no way trying to compete with the big boys (Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, etc) but trying to provide a way for alumni from a specific group to network easily without all that social network “noise” you see with them. I know you can create Facebook or LinkedIn groups but I feel like this is overkill for the niche I am trying to reach. Each instance of alumLINK is secure to its own group or team (unless customized otherwise upon installation).
3 years ago when starting the company I saw the need for this kind of product. We had no good way of communicating with all the soccer alumni that went through my school. We always thought it would be nice to have a way to communicate with all of them and provide job opportunities and a way to mentor the younger alumni or even current students. alumLINK now makes this possible.
Head on over to http://myalumLINK.com and give it a test drive. We are currently implementing this for teams, Greek organizations (fraternities/sororities), as well as athletic departments and even entire schools!
