Contact management software?

Q: Contact management software?

Hello all

I'm looking for some software that:

- Will hold contacts and their information
- Can be edited and shared between two computers (ie over a network)
- Can be integrated into outlook and maybe word if possible
- Can do mass mailing
- Can run on windows 98se (not a requirment, but a plus)

I was curious if you guys knew of any good programs. I know of Act and Access, but was curious if there was any others out there.

Preferred Solution: Contact management software?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Any suggestions for managing contacts? Hopefully a program that can export to SQL or Access for backup.

I've searched on sourceforge and download.com with no luck, maybe I'm using the wrong description terms.

A:Contact Management software?

FileMaker is about the best database program out there for the consumer. You can create a custom CRM program quickly and easily. You can export the database in a variety of different formats, each is compatible with Access and you can execute SQL queries.

I can make you a runtime (database program that runs independently) of one of the contact management files - it will export, but it won't have built-in SQL queries. If you wanted that, you'd have to pay me to design it

Is there a contact management program in the market that does NOT interface with MS Outlook? I used to use Maximizer, but they do not have a PocketPC link. I switched to Act! which is a complete disaster when it comes to the PocketPC link. There are some serious flaws in the program and they don't seem to care much about trying to fix them. I would like to find any contact management program that has calendar, contacts and task lists that do NOT interface with MS Outlook. Thanks....

A:Contact Management Software

Why not just use Pocket Mirror or the Palm Desktop software? You DO NOT have to interface any contact manager with Outlook it is normally a feature because a lot of people use Outlook. Isn't there a default contact manager that comes with PocketPC (I am assuming Outlook) and why are you so dead set against not using Outlook?

Hey everybody

Here at the office, we have been using Microsoft Access 2003 to manage our agents. It's worked pretty well, but we need something that will do more. Now, I'm not sure of the extent that Access can go into, so it may actually be able to do everything we need it to do.

What we need is contact management software that will allow us to set everyone up into groups. But we need to be able to set up users for the database. These users would have limited access, depending on who they are in the company. Also, we need something where we can attach resumes, files, etc. to it. We are currently using Access, and about 3 other programs to do various things.

I've taken a look at Act! 6, and it is almost perfect for what we want. The people can be put into various groups, and I can attach files right to those people for easy access. Almost perfect.

The problem is, Act doesn't allow me to set access to the groups. For example, when I was using Act, I would set up a hierarchy, to where the top group is the top guy, and each person under that person is a subgroup. That works perfect, except I need to be able to set it up where only certain people can see these groups. I can't do this with Act.

I've taken a look at some other programs as well, but Act is the closest thing I can find. Does anyone know of some really good Contact Management software that I can use? Or is Access capable of what I need it to do?

I'm looking for a non-e-mail, Contacts & Calendar-only alternative to Outlook. Something simple and light-weight that would synchronize with Google Calendar, perhaps. An online solution would be great too. I want it to store names, addresses (multiples, such as home and business), multiple phone numbers and e-mail accounts for each person, and I want birthday's to be both in the contact details and on the calendar. For something so simple, it's been very ellusive.....unless I'm not looking in the right place.

I've been searching around for a while, and I haven't found anything that strikes me. I'm open to suggestions.

I need to put all our contacts into one sheet(with tabs that in sync) in preparation for our launch. Eventually we hope to get a fancy contact management system, or even a basic one like access, but for now, I want to organzie our org's contacts, and have a pivot table link to the region they are from. I deally when I enter the contact,I want to give each contact 2 fields, in addition to all their normal contact data. I'd like one field to be "function" (funders, prospects, research institutions, J Schools, etc), and one field would be what they do (researcher, Professor, journalist, NPO). DOes that make sense? Currently I have only one sheet with many fields, and I don't know how to do a pivot table. I'd like to be able to pull up any one who is a funder, or anyone who is a researcher). Make sense?

Here's the scoop:

Boss has a BlackBerry I'm charged with setting up. She wants to send e-mail to people on the Exchange server's GAL, but can't, since BB doesn't support uploading GALs because of their potential size. So, why not make the GAL into a bunch of contacts that the BB will recognize, right? Smashing idea! Except my boss has already filled out the entire list of contacts with people not on the GAL, and needs to keep those people separate from the GAL.

In Access, I create a new contacts style list (File > New Folder > [contains contact items option selected] > Name "Staff GAL") for my boss, and it sticks. Good job, yay, me.

Here's my trouble: I can open the address book, and see the GAL. I now want to add those into my new "Staff GAL" contact list. The option I have in that little address book window (Tools > Address Book) only has the option for "Add to Contacts." Can't do that for my boss, because her default contacts list is full of people who shouldn't be merged with the the GAL people.

How do I take address book entires and add them all to a contact list in one fell swoop? Even if I have to add them one-by-one, I still need to "Add to Staff GAL" and not "Add to Contacts."

What's the procedure?

Also, it can not be created in a distribution list. Tried that, and BB doesn't support DL's, either. I have to port the individual addresses.

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any software that would allow keep a database of client details e.g. account number, address, phone/fax etc (the basics really).

At the moment I have been using Microsoft Outlook for the past 3 years, but the only problem with this is that I am unable to share the database on my network.

Is there any program that works like outlooks contact's system but can be easily accessed & viewed by any computer on my net.

I've read a few articles on setting up an exchange server, but it didnt quite seem to work for me, and nearly all my systems are XP anyway. So i gave up on this idea.

There was another program that I found, that works with outlook itself, and shares the database on the network without the need of an exchange server, but the licence fee was just too much.. something close to 300-400 for 5 liences.

I dont mind if the software is web based, as I was kinda thinking about just setting up a webserver on one of my machines and running a forum on there, adding each client as an individual member. Access the details would be easy enough but the having to register each client would be quite timely.

DOes anyone have any ideas on what other programs I could use, or is there any web software already availbe that will work in this manner for me.

It needs be easily accessible over the network by any computer, aswell as editable.

Thanx in advance for any advice.

Hi! My son downloaded a software program and free trial of Movieland. It stated that you could cancel, but then loaded software called media pipe on our computer. I wanted the Movieland cancelled, but we could not get back to any contact for them-- no phone, no e-mail, nothing! In looking at the media pipe information, I found all links went to viruses and so I bought PC doctor to remove some 245 viruses that had infected our computer. Now I cannot get to any contact to get rid of this Movieland trial and I do not want to pay a $99 subscription for it. Any suggestions as to what I can do? Any help would be appreciated!

i work for an internet business which sells on eBay. at the moment we take a lot of phone orders. obviously with eBay it keeps a record of the order on there, but with phone orders it involves so much paperwork being produced and filing, so when customers ring up to query something from a while back im having to go through loads of paperwork to find their order.

I was wondering if anyone can recommend a suitable piece of software that i can use where i would just enter details of their order, for example name, delivery address, items ordered and price etc etc. It would ideally be so if someone rings up and asks about a previous order i can open this program, click a few buttons and their order is in front of me.

im not fussed about keeping inventorys of stock levels and all that, don't particularly want anything over complicated, im good with computers and quite knowledgable but would prefer something simple.
another way i was thinking was to do my own "intranet" and have a form on there which i fill in and then it saves it on the computer so me and my two colleagues (which will become more as we expand) can view it.

i also looked into using microsoft access but not a fan of it.

any ideas would be much appreciated!!!
many thanks

A:Order Management Software

Hi Arron, welcome to the board!

I would recommend Microsoft Access, especially if you have it. Of course this could be done in Excel (which I am a fan of ) but as you grow and your information grows with your company, you'll be happy you started this in a relational database.

There are many Access guru's here and I'm not one of them. LOL! But you may want to think about changing your thread title (Thread Tools | Edit Thread) to include Access somewhere in there. Your current title is somewhat misleading. Also, you may want to check Office Online for templates, there are many you may find useful.

So I have an external hard drive and I want to set it up so that when I connect it to my laptop, all the contents of one folder are automatically moved to the hard drive. I am NOT looking to sync the two folders. I just want a software that automates the moving of files.
Any ideas/tips/suggestions?

A:Folder Management Software

create a autorun.inf that points to a .bat file containing a move command
Examples of using the mv command


It will work the same way with an external drive so long as you set your laptop to run the auto run instead of just opening the drive.

If you put the .bat file in the source folder command would only have to be

move *.* c:\locationtodumpfiles
No need for software for this, you can do it in about 5 minutes with notepad.

I'm looking for font management software. I don't want to fill my windows/fonts folder with my own fonts every time I'm working on a project. I want to keep my fonts separate and only turn them on when needed. Like temporary fonts. Then turn them off again. The windows/fonts folder shouldn't be touched/enlarged, just containing the default windows fonts.

Any advice? I guess it isn't possible to temporarily turn on fonts without installing them in the windows/fonts folder?

A:font management software

That sounds like a good idea but I don't know of anything that will do that. Modern PC's and moder OS' such as Win 7 do not have a problem with a large amount of fonts. And, if you are having space problems on the hard drive, it's really time to upgrade the hard drive rather than limit items such as the fonts.

I'm looking for some software that we can use to manage our printing in our office. We have a couple printers that we print on each day and we'd like to track how much gets printed through there. I've found some stuff, but the main function I'm looking for I'm not sure they offer. We aren't trying to see who prints the most or waste paper or anything (we don't really see that as an issue) but instead we need to track our reimbursable.

All of our printing (for clients) gets charged back to the client. Basically I want something that when you click print on your computer, you have to select what project it's for. Maybe just enter the project number. Then the software tracks how many pages (of both 8 1/2 x 11 and 11 x 17 separately) so at the end of the month we have a total of how much each project requires we print.

Does anyone know of software that can do that?
