CompanionLink Develops Secure Hosted Wireless Sync for Android, iPhone and BlackBerry
Jan 18, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
CompanionLink Software announced the development of secure hosted wireless sync offerings with iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry and Android phones and tablets.
The monthly subscription service eliminates the need for intermediaries like Google or iTunes when synchronizing PC calendar, contacts, tasks and notes. These intermediaries often limit the types of data users can synchronize. CompanionLink syncs devices directly with PC software like Microsoft Outlook, Sage ACT!, IBM Lotus Notes, Palm Desktop, Novell GroupWise, Salesforce CRM, and Time & Chaos.
"Intermediaries like Google do not support all the fields found in PC CRM software," said Rushang Shah, Director of Marketing for CompanionLink Software. "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."
CompanionLink can also synchronize standalone Outlook data for those without an Exchange server. Microsoft Exchange is the wireless sync solution of choice for enterprises. However, consumers and small businesses that use Outlook without Exchange can use CompanionLink's service to achieve automatic wireless sync.
For Android, iPhone and iPad devices, CompanionLink's Secure Hosted Wireless sync works in tandem with an app called DejaOffice. DejaOffice brings PC-like calendar, contacts, tasks and notes functionality to these consumer devices, making them more business-savvy. It offers tight integration between its apps with features like color-coded categories, private records, task styles (GTD, Franklin Covey, TBYL), custom fields, and advanced sort options.
CompanionLink also supports PC sync with Palm webOS, Windows Phone, Windows Mobile and Nokia Symbian devices.
