I worked with Renee C. to resolve a calendar sync issue. She quickly identified the problem, explained the solution and sent me precise instructions on what I needed to do to get everything running again. She was friendly and professional. A great tech support experience.

I have recently bought a new desktop PC due to w7 support ending.
Both before and after I was in contact with Renee C. and I cannot praise her enough.
Her responses were clear, comprehensive and I know on a least one occasion she "went the extra mile".
Thank you Renee for making the transition to w10 with Companionlink relatively seamless.
Great Product Great Support!!

After a couple of weeks trying to figure my syncing problem out (DejaOffice to CompanionLink and back), I spoke with Renee. She spent about 20 minutes with me and finally hit on the solution. Unfortunately, the next day my problem was back. The solution was not sticky.

However, my review of Renee's participation is 5 stars. She is a real 'people person' and is able to convey her technical knowledge in terms that the user can understand. I enjoyed working with her.

My suggestion is to hang on to Renee and improve the software.
Renee is AWESOME!!!

Comparison of competing products by price; low to high.

In addition to the features, look carefully at the Resync time. After the first day of use, all other days you will synchronize at least once. So the automatic sync and resync time are what is most important.
