CompanionLink announced secure hosted wireless sync with iPhone (News - Alert), iPad, BlackBerry and Android phones and tablets. When synchronizing PC calendar, contacts, tasks and notes, the monthly subscription service eliminates the need for intermediaries like Google (News - Alert) or iTunes.
Without an Exchange server, CompanionLink can also synchronize standalone Outlook data. CompanionLink’s service can be used to achieve automatic wireless sync with consumers and small businesses that use Outlook without Exchange. For Android (News - Alert), iPhone and iPad devices, CompanionLink’s Secure Hosted Wireless sync works in tandem with an app called DejaOffice.
The company’s solutions help synchronize contact management data across multiple devices, computers and applications. In the office or on the road, the company’s suite of synchronization solutions enables the customer to take your data wherever they go.
“Intermediaries like Google do not support all the fields found in popular PC CRM software,” said Rushang Shah, director of Marketing for CompanionLink Software, in a press release. “For example, Google does not support the Job Title field for contact records. If you use that field in Outlook on your PC, Google will not sync it to your phone. CompanionLink’s Secure Hosted Wireless sync ensures that you get a complete sync of all your data.”
Making communication devices more business-savvy, DejaOffice brings PC-like calendar, contacts, tasks and notes functionality to these consumer devices. With features like color-coded categories, private records, task styles (GTD, Franklin Covey, TBYL), custom fields, and advanced sort options, it offers tight integration between its apps. CompanionLink is available for a one-time license starting at $39.95. The company has announced that the Secure Hosted Wireless service is an additional $9.95 per month.
Recently, the company announced two-way sync with Nexus S. CompanionLink now synchronizes contacts, calendar, tasks and notes between the Nexus S and PC software such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Business Contact Manager, Sage ACT!, IBM Lotus Notes, Novell (News - Alert) GroupWise, and Palm Desktop. The company also offers four ways to sync with Nexus S. Customers can purchase CompanionLink’s sync solutions for Nexus S for a one-time cost starting at $39.95.Raju Shanbhag is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
