CompanionLink for Google A Powerful Alternative to Google Calendar Sync

CompanionLink’s sync software provides more complete two-way synchronization between Microsoft Outlook and Google

November 17, 2008, Portland, Ore. – CompanionLink Software, a leader in mobile synchronization solutions, was the first to release two-way synchronization for Microsoft Outlook contacts, calendar, and tasks with Google. CompanionLink for Google has more features, includes free live technical support, and is compatible with more versions of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Outlook than the Google Calendar Sync tool developed by Google.

CompanionLink for Google synchronizes Microsoft Outlook contacts, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, calendar events, recurring appointments, tasks, and alarms and reminders with a user’s Google account. The Google Calendar Sync tool from Google does not synchronize contacts, tasks, or multiple calendars; features that CompanionLink does offer. A full comparison of features offered by both solutions can be found at

CompanionLink’s two-way synchronization ensures that any change to data in Google will also synchronize back with Microsoft Outlook. In addition to Outlook data, CompanionLink for Google also synchronizes multiple Google calendars with Outlook categories. Free phone support and compatibility with all versions of Microsoft Outlook 97 and higher give CompanionLink’s solution an edge over Google Calendar Sync.

"CompanionLink is the missing Outlook sync software for Google users," says Rushang Shah, Director of Marketing at CompanionLink Software. "Compared to Google’s native sync solution, our software has a richer feature set that can sync contacts and multiple calendars. We also provide live technical support and broader compatibility with versions of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Outlook."

CompanionLink for Google is available from the company’s website for $29.95. Technical support is included for free with the purchase. A 14-day evaluation version can be found at
