Sync BCM with Outlook/Exchange and BlackBerry

Published by

A common source of confusion is how to sync Outlook Business Contact Manager (BCM) data with Outlook/Exchange, and with your BlackBerry.

CompanionLink can do this.  In fact, it can do it in four different ways.

  1. BCM < > BlackBerry (using USB)
    Set up CompanionLink to sync your BCM data to you BlackBerry directly using USB.  Your existing BES solution will then push this data from your BlackBerry to your Outlook, automatically. (Cost: $49.95)
  2. BCM < > Google < > BlackBerry (using Google Sync)
    Set up CompanionLink to sync your BCM contacts and calendar data with a free Gmail account.  Then, use the free Google Sync service to sync this data to your BlackBerry. (Cost: $49.95)
  3. BCM < > CompanionLink wireless sync service < > BlackBerry
    Set up CompanionLink Pro to wirelessly sync BCM data to your BlackBerry.  Your existing BES solution will then push this data into your Outlook.  (Cost: $99.95 + $9.95/month for wireless sync service)
  4. BCM < > PIM (like Palm Desktop) < > Outlook
    We need the intermediary PIM because BCM data can’t be synced directly with Outlook (at least, not yet).  Set up CompanionLink Pro to sync BCM to a free PIM solution like Palm Desktop.  Then, set up another profile in CompanionLink Pro to sync Palm Desktop to Outlook.  Once this data is in Outlook, your existing BES solution will push that to your BlackBerry.  Please note: you’ll need CompanionLink Pro to do this; the Express version doesn’t have the ability to create multiple profiles.  (Cost: $99.95)
