WriteThat.Name Chrome Extension

Tags contact-management’s chrome plugin captures contact info that you can directly add to google contacts / EverNote / or any other platform on your computer as you can download the info as a vCard.

How it works: After selecting text anywhere on the web ( LinkedIn, Contact Us page on a website or an email signature within your inbox, etc.), click the plugin to analyze the text and then save it to whatever address book / CRM you’d like.
