Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0137161A2] Intelligent profile management systems, computer program products, and related methods are disclosed in which a profile manager controls one or more profiles with each profile including a virtual filing card, and, optionally, a virtual business card. The virtual business card may originate from the entity with which the virtual business card is associated. A virtual filing card, on the other hand, may originate from any entity that wishes to record information about some other entity. A virtual business card and virtual filing card associated with the same entity are thus paired together to comprise a profile for that entity. A communication device may receive a request for a referral (i.e., information) for another entity (i.e., an entity not associated with the communication device). In response to the request, the communication device may send a virtual filing card associated with the requested entity to the requesting communication device. Accordingly, virtual filing cards may facilitate the sharing of information among entities, including subjective information accumulated by one entity that pertains to another entity.
