ACT! by Sage users who also own an iPhone can use both technologies as part of their business workflow. CompanionLink offers ACT! to iPhone synchronization that allows for two-way wireless transfer of ACT! contacts, activities, to-dos, notes, histories and opportunities. CompanionLink also allows ACT! users to link activities and notes to contacts for optimal organization of business data between ACT! and iPhone.
CompanionLink offers two ways to synchronize data between ACT! and iPhone – wired USB sync and wireless sync. Wired USB sync transfers contacts and calendar data between ACT! and iPhone using Outlook and iTunes. Wireless sync between ACT! and iPhone can be configured in one of two methods – sync via Google or sync via CompanionLink’s wireless sync service. Sync via Google requires a Google account to hold ACT! data, and the Google Sync service to transfer data over-the-air. Sync via CompanionLink’s wireless service transfers data directly between ACT! and iPhone.
A 14-day evaluation version of the ACT! to iPhone wireless sync software is available at www.companionlink.com/iphone.

With the introduction of the Apple iPad, business professionals have another option to be productive while away from their office or desks. Apple announced that the iPad is compatible with the thousands of apps that are currently available for the iPhone.
CompanionLink plans to fully utilize the tablet-friendly format of the iPad by launching a suite of business apps to manage large volumes of contacts, calendar events, tasks and notes. Managing this wealth of data will be even easier with voice commands and dictation features that CompanionLink will integrate into their apps.
