WebClipDrop Is Renaming To ZAPinfo™!

Stay tuned for our new name + announcements coming soon

We've Changed Our Name To ZAPinfo™!

We also have new funding and some new team members!

Naming (and re-naming) companies is always an interesting task, and when we launched WebClipDrop we thought it was a cute play on words that would explain the business well.

You're on a "website" and you want to "clip" data into your browser clipboard, and then "drop" it into your web applications. Sounded good, right? Web > Clip > Drop...

Well, after giving hundreds of demo's and hearing people call us "Web-Click-Drop", "Web-Clack-Drop", "Web-Clip-Board", and many people begging us to change the darn name, we've finally made the move to "ZAPinfo"

We hope the name will be much simpler to remember, and our purpose is easy, we help you Zap info easily across the web, removing hours of data entry, cleaning, updating & research, making recruiters and sales people more productive using our information automation tool.

Please be patient as we go through our transition, and if you see anything wonky, please email us with anything you see and we'll jump on it.

Your WebClipDrop Chrome Extension will automatically change to the new colors, logo/icons, and should retain any data that you had inside, but if you don't see the update - you can just restart Chrome and it should load the new version of the ZAPinfo extension.

New Name > New Funding > New Team!

We've also raised our $1.25 million dollar seed round of venture financing from top venture firms including Rally Ventures, Seven Peaks Ventures, and Great North Labs (along with a few angel investors) which will help us accelerate our growth and go to market strategy.

We've already had over 3,200 users download the Chrome Extension and are actively using the tool to automate the capture, enrichment and sharing of info across the web and get more productive, and many top companies are getting their entire teams using the tool to maximize and measure their recruiting and sourcing strategy.

Doug Berg (previous founder of Jobs2Web and techies.com) has joined the ZAPinfo team full time as CEO and will help drive innovation and growth.

Doug was one of the founders and initial investors in the business, but after recently selling his previous business MyAlerts, he's now transitioned back into the recruiting automation arena.

We've also expanded our sales and development team which you may have read in our previous blog post here. Some of the new team include the following:

We hope to see you at several of the major shows coming up this fall including SourceCon in Atlanta, and HR Tech in Vegas, along with the S7 event in Seattle in September.
