CompanionLink Software introduces ‘iClink’ Apple iPhone wireless sync service

CompanionLink Software, a mobile synchronization solutions provider, will release a wireless data sync service for the Apple iPhone. The service, called iClink, will sync contacts, calendar, and tasks between the iPhone and popular contact management and CRM software like ACT! by Sage, Microsoft Outlook with BCM, IBM Lotus Notes, Novell GroupWise, FrontRange GoldMine, Google Calendar, and Palm Desktop.

iClink will allow Apple iPhone owners to access and edit their CRM contacts, calendar events, recurring appointments, tasks, and notes directly from their device. iClink will run on the Apple iPhone and wirelessly synchronize data with the desktop CRM software. Two-way sync capabilities will ensure that data modified in either the desktop software or on the iPhone will always remain in sync.

“The iClink service opens up new functionality on the iPhone as well as a way to bypass the need to dock the device with a computer to sync data,” said Rushang Shah, Director of Marketing at CompanionLink Software, in the press release. “Our service will play a pioneering role in allowing iPhone owners to access their ACT!, Lotus Notes, or Outlook with Business Contact Manager data on their devices from anywhere.”

iClink will be available on the Apple App Store for US$39.95.

  1. Note that iClink also requires the $100 CompanionLink software on your computer. PLUS the $10/month wireless syncing service. Who wouldn’t rather pay $100/year for MobileMe? I guess the value added by iClink is syncing with ACT, Lotus, etc.

  2. Perhaps they have been working on it and had no idea of Apple’s plans for mobileme. So they release it now to try to be first to market and recover some of their costs before it becomes irrelevant. They still have a month or two before they have to worry. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  3. Apple love to shout and scream about their wireless technology yet i still have to plug in their seemingly advanced phone to sync my simple date..

    Apple builds this technology right in for my nasty old and clunky Sony Ericson but will not allow my iphone to do the same trick.. Sometimes this company just baffles me

  4. Companionlink products have been notoriously buggy for me. They really don’t tell you if you must set up Outlook to automatically sync with ACT! for the service to work.

    If the service requires automatic two-way sync between ACT! & Outlook it is doomed to fail with duplicate entries and multiple contacts assigned to every meeting.

    Don’t hold your breath.
