CompanionLink Turns iPhone 5 into a Mobile CRM Tool with DejaOffice
By Mini Swamy
All business professionals want to create an efficient work environment where productivity is maximized, but with the mobilocracy trend fast catching on, so many different devices being used and so many apps to contend with, the task becomes very difficult - but not impossible, at least according to CompanionLink.
Well known for its mobile synchronization, CompanionLink has developed a business-class CRM app called DejaOffice, which combines the best of PC and PDA productivity functions. In its current avatar, the company provides immediate support for synchronization with iPhone (News - Alert) 5 and iOS 6, delivering an office-like productivity to people.
As a result, the company provides secure business-caliber contacts, calendar, tasks, memos, journal, notes, and expenses synchronization on iPhone 5 without the need of either the cloud or an exchange to host business data.
DejaOffice works offline, but gives functionality to manage all these tasks and easily integrates with popular CRM tools.
By synchronizing contact management and CRM data across mobile devices, computers and applications, CompanionLink gives people tools to be as productive on their devices as they are on their PCs.
“The iPhone 5 raises the mobile experience for business professionals,” said Wayland Bruns, chief technology officer at CompanionLink Software.
He also added that the larger screen, turn-by-turn mapping, and support for LTE (News - Alert) enhances productivity and value for mobile professionals that use the company's data synchronization software.
CompanionLink's ability to synchronize with business systems like Microsoft (News - Alert) Outlook Business Contact Manager, Palm Desktop, and others and its commitment to the future of mobile technology, helps deliver a business-caliber CRM- to-mobile productivity ecosystem.
It is priced at $14.95 for a three-month subscription. For $49, it offers RunStart, a configuration service to log on the computer and set up a PC data connection with iPhone 5. In addition, it provides free support and offers a 90-day money-back guarantee.
CompanionLink was recently included in a Forbes.com article about the Top 9 Apps for Salespeople.
