Samsung has a useful app called Smart Switch that allows quick transfer of key data between two Android devices. It helps people who buy a new phone, like Samsung Galaxy S6, to move music, photos, contacts, calendar, and settings from an older phone.
The 4-star reviews of the app shows that Smart Switch works well for basic data. The 50,000+ reviews also show that transferring information between devices is a big problem that many people are looking to solve.
Where is the Smart Switch for business CRM data?
Business and advanced users need something similar to Smart Switch that can handle their complete data set. The most important data for business professionals is their address book, notes about their dealings with clients, and their calendar management system.
Productivity seekers will also need to transfer their task management system like Franklin Covey or Getting Things Done. Advanced users have a system to store all this information on a desktop productivity suite like Microsoft Office Outlook or a CRM system like Act!, GoldMine, Business Contact Manager, or Salesforce.com. They prefer to store this info on the desktop because of the innate security with local storage and quick UI. These tools are designed to hold all business data in one integrated database.
Smart Switch isn’t going to work with these productivity suites, nor will it sync the advanced data that businesses need. For example, Contact Categories, Tasks Priorities, Task Alerts, Notes, and Client History are all advanced CRM data fields that most consumers don’t care about, but business people depend on.
