June 19, 2008, Portland, Ore. – CompanionLink Software, a leader in mobile synchronization solutions, will release a wireless data sync service for the Apple iPhone. The service, called iClink, will sync contacts, calendar, and tasks between the iPhone and popular contact management and CRM software like ACT! by Sage, Microsoft Outlook with BCM, IBM Lotus Notes, Novell GroupWise, FrontRange GoldMine, Google Calendar, and Palm Desktop.
iClink will allow Apple iPhone owners to access and edit their CRM contacts, calendar events, recurring appointments, tasks, and notes directly from their device. iClink will run on the Apple iPhone and wirelessly synchronize data with the desktop CRM software. Two-way sync capabilities will ensure that data modified in either the desktop software or on the iPhone will always remain in sync.
Alternatively, the solution can be set up to synchronize ACT! data directly to each user’s mobile device, without using Microsoft Exchange. This configuration uses CompanionLink Software’s wireless sync service, available for $9.95 per month per device, and is a solution for companies who don’t want to manage an Exchange Server but still want mobile synchronization for ACT! for multiple users.
DoubleLook Enterprise provides a powerful User Management Console to manage all user accounts from one screen. The console allows administrators to activate, deactivate, and customize synchronization settings for each user. Administrators can select what CRM data they want to synchronize for each user.
"The iClink service opens up new functionality on the iPhone as well as a way to bypass the need to dock the device with a computer to sync data," said Rushang Shah, Director of Marketing at CompanionLink Software. "Our service will play a pioneering role in allowing iPhone owners to access their ACT!, Lotus Notes, or Outlook with Business Contact Manager data on their devices from anywhere."
