CompanionLink Releases Apple iPhone Synchronization for Mobile Professionals

Solution Will Synchronize Contacts and Calendar Between Leading Contact Management Solutions and Apple’s iPhone

PORTLAND, OR–(Marketwire – July 3, 2007) – CompanionLink Software, a leader in mobile synchronization solutions, has released CRM synchronization for the Apple iPhone. The solution will synchronize contacts and calendar from ACT! by Sage, GoldMine, Lotus Notes, Novell GroupWise, Time & Chaos, Google Apps, and Palm Desktop to the Apple iPhone. With this innovation, ahead of all other competitors, CompanionLink again proves its rapid development capability introducing synchronization solutions for new devices, platforms and technologies. CompanionLink specializes in serving mobile professionals that do not use Outlook as a primary customer relations tool. By extending iPhone synchronization to a dozen other platforms, CompanionLink provides a seamless solution for the business marketplace. CompanionLink’s solution delivers two-way synchronization of all contacts and calendar events. Users of industry standard CRM applications will have their alarms, phone look-ups, and travel directions fully available on the iPhone.

“The mapping, web browsing and calendar capabilities of the iPhone make it extremely compelling for today’s mobile professional,” says Wayland Bruns, CEO of CompanionLink Software. “The iPhone is a leap in value over every prior handheld, and shows that new technology can dramatically improve personal productivity while saving time and effort. To be able to easily use mobile Google Maps from one ACT! contact to another, or to quickly check your Lotus Notes meeting schedule, demonstrates the business value of the iPhone device.”

CompanionLink is available in two versions: Express and Professional. Both versions support iPhone synchronization and start at $49.95. The current implementation requires Microsoft Outlook to be installed. A direct sync that works without Outlook is anticipated in the current quarter. A free 14-day evaluation version of the software is available at

    Hello, Can you tell me if Companionlink has resolved issues with its app for the iphone. I paid for unlimited support, and support was continually having me reinstall the app, and submitting programming tickets to their it department. Also, the cl software on the pc was suspect as well, as it did not regularly sync.

    I had an new iphone 4, ACT 2009 on a Windows XP computer, and was paying for the mobile sync app. I was syncing thru google contacts and calendar.

    I need something asap to get contacts syncing both ways.

      Good question. I am unaware of any issues with an iPhone app. what are you experiencing? Just not syncing? What does support have to say about it? You might consider doing an export, import until they provide a resolution.
