In March of this year Handheld Contact released “Handheld Contact API” for IOS users, and it changed how our customers viewed mobile access for Act!. Handheld Contact API delivered more updates of more data, faster, and across more devices than ever before, and all with no desktop software to install or configure.
Setup was simple and most users had all their data on their device within minutes. How did we do it? It’s simple, we built a product that synced directly to the database via the Act! WebAPI, and this provided us faster access to the data without needing middleware.
Well we’re delighted to announce today that we’ve finally released the same Handheld Contact API version, but for Android users. It’s taken many months of development and extensive testing, but we couldn’t be more excited with the final result, and we know our Android customers will feel the same.
Here’s a short list of new features included with Handheld Contact API for Android:
- Wireless syncing of contacts, calendars, task lists, opportunities, notes & histories
- Fast setup with no computer software to install or configure
- No Windows Console needed, syncs directly with master database using the Act! WebAPI
- No contact limit
- Sync with multiple devices per account
- New Dashboard
- Tagging, sharing, and duplicating contacts
- Importing & Exporting of Contacts & Calendars
- Activities invites
Handheld Contact users will love how creating a new activity on their device syncs instantly to their master database, while still providing them the ability to save data offline. You will be more connected to the office than ever before.
The best part is a Handheld Contact API subscription costs the same as our Classic edition, but you get more data on more devices at no extra cost, and now it’s available for Android users.
