Ekeren, Belgium (PressExposure) January 05, 2010 -- Responding to the "information overload" frustrations of millions of information workers, marketers, businesses, and social media users, The Roving Group, a software development company focused on creating key software for mobile people, has released the first application in its suite of online productivity tools. RovingContacts is a mobile contact management system that allows users to maintain, synchronize, share, and grow their online address books from one location.
Features of RovingContacts include the ability to:
- Import current contacts from almost any application, device, or proprietary database - Merge and de-duplicate contacts into one centralized, mobile address book - Synchronize address books automatically - contacts are always up to date wherever you use them - Map contacts' locations and get step-by-step driving directions through Bing integration - Customize, categorize, and tag contacts - the user has complete control - Share address books with colleagues, friends, and service providers to expand the user's network and increase productivity - Get to know contacts better - RovingContacts automatically searches for information about each contact on popular social media sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn, and "upgrades" contact files with their profile data - Build valuable resources - categorized and segmented online address books increase the value of data
Unlike many contact management systems, RovingContacts is an independent application that is not tied to any particular device or company. With proprietary systems, when users try to move to a new device they find that they can't take their contacts with them because they're actually owned by the company. With RovingContacts, users' data is theirs to keep and access any time, anywhere. A third-party synchronization platform is also in development that will allow developers to create a bridge to any platform.
RovingContacts is available for wide variety of budgets and needs:
- A Robust Free Version - available to all users free of charge - Personal License - adds merge and collaborate features, customizable reporting, and label printing - Business License - ideal for small businesses: adds ability to share selected address books with colleagues, automated contact data completion, and real-time contact online notification - Premium License - ideal for small businesses and large corporations: adds automatic duplication detection, multiple user management, synchronization with external platforms and/or websites, and ability to customize synchronization features
All paid subscriptions are available with a free, no-risk 30-day trial.
