CompanionLink gives a range of sync methods that differ in security, speed and flexibility. You can freely switch your method at any time. You can install CompanionLink on three computers such as Work, MacBook and Home. A CompanionLink software purchase gives you one year of free DejaCloud service.

For Android Phones and Tablets, we recommend the DejaOffice for Outlook App from the Google Play store. DejaOffice holds Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes together, and with the same internal formats as in Outlook. DejaOffice synchronizes to Android Native Accounts for Contacts and Calendar. If you don't want to use DejaOffice, select the Google Sync feature below for a simple and clean sync through Google.

If you want to sync to Android's native Contacts and Calendar apps instead of using DejaOffice for Outlook, click here.
