Recently, CompanionLink Software, a developer of data synchronization solutions for mobile phones and CRM software and services, began using Microsoft Exchange to bring the power of Microsoft (News - Alert) Outlook Business Contact Manager together with the ease of synchronizing to mobile devices.
Outlook BCM data is stored in a separate Outlook folder, as opposed to the same folders used by Exchange. Therefore, the two do no work together out-of-the-box and people who are in hope of taking their BCM data on-the-go are forced to use their desktop computer.
With the ability to synchronize one type of Microsoft Outlook folder to another, CompanionLink
is allowing for email hosting capabilities to be used wherever someone is.
When you sync your phone, you can choose either wired sync or wireless sync. When set up with your regular Outlook folders, you can then sync your Business Contact Manager data with other services including Exchange and iCloud.The Exchange server can then synchronize this data to mobile devices, such as Android (News - Alert), iPhone, and iPad that support Exchange ActiveSync.
In a press release, Rushang Shah, director of Marketing at CompanionLink Software, said, "Finally, companies can extend the benefits of their Exchange environment to their Outlook Business Contact Manager data.Just set it up once and CompanionLink ensures your BCM data works with Exchange without any extra input on your end."
Starting at $34.95 per license, CompanionLink Professional 5 can sync Outlook BCM with any version of Microsoft Exchange. A 14-day free trial along with free email and telephone support is currently available.
In related news, recently CompanionLink Software released its CompanionLink for Windows Live, a new two-way sync tool for people using Windows Live Hotmail accounts. This solution is sure to enable the email hosting space to continue to expand now and in the future.
