Another Sync From CompanionLink

CompanionLink Software recently announced another mobile synchronization solution, to add to its already considerable list of linking and syncing softwares, and this time it is a three way coordination between Palm Pre and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions and contact management softwares.
Palm Pre, from Palm, is an internet linked, multimedia enabled competitor for the iPhone (News - Alert) with a multi touch screen, a sliding keyboard and a new Operating System (OS) called the Palm WebOS. The OS, based on Linux and hence contributing to the open era, has a touch screen Graphical User Interface (GUI), has a range of applications for Personal Information Management (PIM), and is forged together from a blend of commonly used Web languages – Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML) for formulating text structure and display, and for backward and forward compatibility; JavaScript for use of external applications to Web develop and to analyse scripts resident in other devices and applications ; and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS (News - Alert)) for colors, fonts, styles and layout presentations. Palm WebOS will shortly permit developers to access Mojo (its development environment), data of applications, and hardware features.
The Palm Pre was revealed and showcased at the CES (News - Alert) 2009, and won three CNET’s CES Awards 2009 in the following categories - Best in Show, Best in Category for Cell Phones and Smartphones, and Best from People’s Voice. It is the first smartphone which has an option for wireless charging, which is conjured by means of electromagnetic induction, when nested in a non-impregnation and non-copper contact charger called the Touchstone (News - Alert).
"CompanionLink will become the missing sync software between the Palm Pre and CRM solutions like ACT! by Sage," says Rushang Shah, Director of Marketing at CompanionLink Software. "Our software will automate that entire sync process for people who need the data on their Palm Pre."
All details associated with any PIM (also known as contact management softwares) – phone numbers, names, addresses, email ids, Video ids, notes, alarms, reminders – such as ACT! by Sage, Google (News - Alert), Palm Desktop, Lotus Notes, GoldMine, and Microsoft Outlook, and from any vendor like Sage Software®, NVIDIA®, Google®, and Royal Consumer Electronic Products®, can now be reviewed and edited either wirelessly or via USB on Palm Pre and visa versa. Add to this keeping a track of customers through any CRM, and CompanionLink now enables 3 way syncing.
CompanionLink provides neutral software solutions which allow two devices with different platforms, each with diverse applications, to communicate with each other and be able to intelligently understand each other. Originally, its focus was mainly on a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), or hand-held computer, or palmtop computers, to exchange digital data with desktop computers. In keeping with current trends, its focus has evolved and its syncing softwares have changed and adapted to keep pace with the convergence and different combinations of technologies between mobile phone handsets, palmtops, motion and still cameras, voice recorders, music and movie players, push mail, assorted Web browsers, operating systems and applications.
