Salesnet, a customer relationship management (CRM) software company, has released version 2.2 of its popular Microsoft Outlook synchronization functionality.
This release is the first in an entire series of Microsoft Office add-ins. The Outlook Add-In for Salesnet CRM provides synchronization of contacts, appointments, and tasks between Outlook and Salesnet and lets users send emails from Outlook that are automatically linked to contacts within the his Salesnet account.
Version 2.2 supports Outlook 2007 and 2010 and is compatible with stand-alone Outlook clients as well as Microsoft Exchange and Exchange Online. One of the greatest improvements is the use of Outlook categories to provide users with complete control over what is included in the synchronization. Using the "Salesnet" category, users can keep tight control over their personal information while keeping business items up-to-date.
"Salesnet has provided Outlook integration tools for years, but this release was re-built from the ground up. Synchronization efficiency was improved greatly by providing a new, dedicated set of cloud integration services," said Tod Madderra, chief technology officer at Salesnet, in a statement. "Many of our customers have large sets of contacts and need to be able to quickly and reliably keep them in sync with their Outlook environment. Additionally, we performed extensive testing with Exchange Online to support increasing numbers of customers using cloud-based office environments."
