Well, it’s here. The new iPhone. It seems Mr. Jobs and the folks at Apple have done it again. They’ve got many whipped up in a frenzy for this new device which is tagged as “Twice as Fast. Half the Price.” Clever marketing, and based on the video I watched from their World Wide Developers Conference a few weeks back, it certainly seems impressive, and I do think the upgrade is warranted on it’s own, beyond that third parties are making it even more compelling.

So what do you do if you are an ACT! software user and you want to sync your iPhone with your ACT! database? I have some good news, now you can sync your new iPhone with ACT!, wirelessly. Sounds to good to be true? Not really, Sage isn’t providing this, it comes from an innovative third party developer that contacted me last week. It also syncs with quite a few other applications…again wirelessly, but more on that in a moment.
What you need? Three things… First: CompanionLink Professional (save 5% when you purchase through that link). Second: iClink, which is available today on the Apple AppStore. Third: CompanionLink’s Wireless Sync Service, available for a small monthly fee for CompanionLink Professional users.
Here is a clickable diagram from their site…
If you aren’t an ACT! database user, and want to sync with another software wirelessly, see if the list of products they support meets your needs…
With CompanionLink solution, you can sync your iPhone 3G wirelessly with the following:
- Outlook with Business Contact Manager
- IBM Lotus Notes
- FrontRange GoldMine
- Google Apps
- Palm Desktop
- Novell GroupWise
One of the big pushes made with this new release of the iPhone 3G, is working in corporate envrionments (this includes small businesses), including Sync with Microsoft Exchange. Apple has made it easy for folks like CompanionLink to write compelling software solutions (who would say sync wirelessly with your sales database and iPhone isn’t cool?). Check it out for yourself.
