I have big news for Salesforce.com users looking for a way to take their data with them on the go. CompanionLink Professional now offers two-way sync between Salesforce CRM and Android, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, webOS, and Windows Phone devices. Contacts, calendars, and tasks are all supported.
While we’re excited to offer this great feature across all our supported devices, this is especially good news for Android users. Salesforce does not currently provide a sync solution for Android. This limits mobile productivity for a growing population of the smartphone market. With CompanionLink Professional, Android users can be mobile with their Salesforce data in a matter of minutes.
In addition to supporting Salesforce sync, CompanionLink Professional also supports sync with multiple devices (think phone and tablet) and real-time sync between two databases (think Salesforce and Outlook).
CompanionLink Professional is available via CompanionLink.com or the Salesforce AppExchange. Visit these links for more information, Salesforce user reviews, and a 14-day free trial.
Update: USB sync is now live for all webOS devices! Read about it here.
The recently released Palm Pre 2 ships with the latest version of the HP/Palm webOS operating system, webOS 2.0. Due to core changes in the underlying operating system, CompanionLink’s USB sync is currently not compatible with webOS 2.0 devices like the Palm Pre 2.
CompanionLink’s current recommendation is to sync the Palm Pre 2 via Google. CompanionLink syncs your PC data with any Google or Gmail account. Google then syncs automatically with the Palm Pre 2 over a wireless data connection. Two-way sync is fully supported.
CompanionLink plans to update our USB sync software for webOS devices in the near future to support webOS 2.0. Inquiries about compatibility with the Palm Pre 2 should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
