New version of CompanionLink for GoldMine

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - January 30, 2008) - CompanionLink Software, a leader in mobile synchronization solutions, released a wireless synchronization solution for BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Palm OS mobile devices. The CompanionLink Professional software package has an option to wirelessly synchronize information with leading CRM and contact management solutions and the latest web-enabled mobile devices. This allows business professionals to access and update their CRM contacts, schedules, and notes from anywhere.

The software synchronizes data with ACT! by Sage, FrontRange GoldMine, IBM Lotus Notes, Novell GroupWise, Time & Chaos, Google Apps, Microsoft Outlook, and Palm Desktop databases. Contacts, appointments, notes and histories, opportunities, tasks and to-do lists, user-defined fields, and activities can be synchronized in two ways: wired sync or wireless sync. Wired synchronization requires the mobile device to be docked to the computer using, for example, a USB cable. Wireless synchronization allows data to go from the CRM database to the user's mobile device using CompanionLink Software's wireless synchronization service. CRM data is synchronized with the built-in data fields in the mobile device.

"Wireless synchronization is where the future of mobile devices and data synchronization is headed," said Rushang Shah, Director of Marketing at CompanionLink Software. "Our wireless sync service offers CRM users an affordable way to synchronize their data without configuring or maintaining servers, or installing a separate database application on their PDAs."

CompanionLink Professional retails for a one-time charge of $99.95 per user. The wireless synchronization service is $9.95 per month per mobile device.

Wizard Systems offer an installation service for CompanioLink for UK customers.
