NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2012

NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Vizibility announced today that RE/MAX
Regional Services, one of the largest RE/MAX franchisors in the United States,
is offering digital business cards to its 4,500 real estate brokers and agents
across Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Southern Ohio and Southeastern Michigan.
Vizibility's popular Mobile Business Card is a personalized mobile microsite
which is used to package and share a professional's contact information and
web presence. Agents can easily share their new Mobile Business Cards using
Passbook on their iPhones as well as with QR codes printed on business cards,
listings and other sales materials. Agents can also share their Mobile
Business Cards wirelessly with Near Field Communication (NFC) using
Vizibility's plastic Mobile Wallet Card.

"In today's competitive real estate climate, we have to push the envelope of
technology to give our agents a competitive edge. We also must provide home
buyers with the best tools to make what may be the most important decision of
their lives," said Dane Ellison, CEO of RE/MAX Regional Services.
"Technologies like Vizibility's Mobile Business Card can help our agents get
more opportunities to share their listings, provide mobile virtual tours and
engage effortlessly with prospective home buyers. By making it a little easier
to close sales, we're making it a lot easier for our RE/MAX agents to be more
successful."

Vizibility is the first company to use Passbook for sharing Mobile Business
Cards and RE/MAX Regional Services is the first to implement it on a large
scale. Passbook, recently introduced with Apple's iOS6, allows users to keep
boarding passes, movie tickets, coupons, loyalty cards and more in one place.
Major companies are supporting Passbook including Target, Starbucks, United
Airlines, American Airlines, Google and Ticketmaster.

Vizibility is also introducing three game-changing Mobile Business Card
features:

  oCardSense™ enables Passbook users to select locations where their Mobile
    Business Card Pass can be instantly accessed from their iPhone lock screen
    with a finger swipe. This capability makes it a snap to share contact
    information at the office, tradeshows, networking events, open houses, or
    anywhere else frequent, fast access to a Mobile Business Card is needed.
    Locations are set right on the back of the Pass.
  oCardFollow™ enables people to receive updates when the vCard they
    previously downloaded from a Mobile Business Card changes. This
    patent-pending feature makes it possible for the first time to stay in
    sync with specific people without having to sync every personal contact
    with cumbersome, third-party systems. Vizibility users can easily see and
    manage their vCard followers.
  oThe Mobile Directory displays a searchable directory of mobile business
    cards for everyone in an organization. This feature makes it possible to
    link a company's business cards together to facilitate discovery and
    reinforce the depth of an organization's expertise. Vizibility corporate
    administrators can easily control who appears in their organization's
    Mobile Directory.

"Smartphones have fundamentally changed the way we buy products and select
service providers. Google recently reported that 96% of U.S. smartphone owners
have researched a service or product on their mobile devices," said Greg
Harris, Product Manager at Vizibility (find Greg in Google at

for professionals. We're excited to be helping enterprises and their people
drive revenue using the latest mobile marketing technologies such as Passbook,
QR codes and NFC."
