How it works

CompanionLink synchronizes Windows Phone with standalone Outlook over USB cable. Synchronize contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes. Our USB Sync is designed to restore the traditional wired sync feature that shipped with older Windows mobile handhelds. Just connect your Lumia, Ativ, or HTC Windows Phone to your PC and let CompanionLink handle the rest.

The synchronization works with our free DejaOffice app for WP8 that integrates with your device’s People Hub app. DejaOffice holds Outlook Contacts, Calendar, Tasks, and Notes in one integrated app that works with device features like Caller ID, email, maps, and text messaging.

Wi-Fi Sync option:
You can also sync using Wi-Fi. Choose Local Wi-Fi Sync from our configuration options if you prefer a wireless cloud-free connection between Windows Phone and your PC. This method uses your home/office wireless router to exchange data between Windows Phone and Microsoft Outlook.

DejaCloud option:
You can also sync using our secure Cloud service. Choose DejaCloud sync for a wireless connection that works from anywhere using your phone's data connection. This is the recommended option for people using multiple devices, such as a phone and tablet.
