Would like to Sync with ACT

I am a sales rep that lives and dies with ACT.  However, I can find no software that will allow me to sync with ACT.  I really only want my contact sync'ed with ACT however appointment would be nice.  I have found a monthly service that claims to work, but their too expensive for this rep.  Any advise?

You can use either www.companionlink.com, or Intellisync.  I am using a software called Agent Office and it syncs quite well with using Intellisync.

Use Outlook as the common interface. It is faster and far superior than any solution out there. 

I use ACT-Outlook Synchronizer form http://www.personalcrm.com to do the sync with Outlook and then the data makes it to the Blackberry.

Re: Would like to Sync with ACT

I assume that you are using ACT! 6.0. The page at personalcrm.com that has the Synchronizer is

    http://www.personalcrm.com/act-outlook-synchronizer.htm 

 

They have online docs and everything.

 

If you have ACT! 2007/2008, then the product to use is ACT-To-Outlook Professional Advanced Edition. This product can be found at http://www.act-to-outlook.com

 

As for ACT! 2005/2006, I don't know of any reliable software to use.

Re: Would like to Sync with ACT

Hello Randy - thanks so much for the quick reply.  I'm a beta tester for ACT and have '08 Premium.

 

Guess I'll have to look at that add-on you recommended.

 

Thanks so much.

Re: Would like to Sync with ACT

One option you have is to sync through Outlook.

We developed Outlook addin to sync ACT and Outlook Contacts. It has other features but Contact sync feature is free.

Re: Would like to Sync with ACT

FYI to all...for a list of PIMs supported by various versions of DTM, see this KB:

  • KB12268 Applications supported by BlackBerry Desktop Manager for synchronization

 

Use the newest DTM version that supports your required PIM.

 

Good luck!

Re: Would like to Sync with ACT

Try www.handheldcontact.com . I think it's $179 a year but it's brilliant - syncs my Blackberry with ACT! on my PC every 15 minutes (This would be even more useful if I had a team of people all using the same data). You can find some examples of how it works on my blog at www.networkmarketingblog.org.uk
