Cloud-Based Solution Syncs GAL and Public Folder Contacts to Microsoft Office 365 Users.
June 14, 2016 – Campbell, CA – CiraSync, the cloud-based solution that makes everyone reachable by syncing the GAL to Microsoft Office 365 users and their smartphones in about a minute, is now available through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
CiraSync, a SaaS-based solution, also syncs Public Folder and CRM contacts to Microsoft Outlook and smartphones.
The availability of CiraSync on Microsoft’s increasingly popular cloud platform means that any organization using Office 365 can immediately update all Public Folder and GAL contacts to all its mobile users.
The SaaS platform of choice: Azure
CiraSync is tightly integrated with Office 365 Exchange and Azure Active Directory, and hosted entirely in Azure.
“Our team has over a decade of experience delivering Outlook and Exchange server contact management solutions to major government agencies, large corporations, law firms, and private equity firms,”
said Vern Weitzman, CTO of Cira Apps Limited.
“After extensive investigation into the available options, we determined that Azure was the perfect cloud platform for our SaaS solution.”
Contacts are crucial to many Office 365 users
IT consultant Joe Jerebic of Kismet Solutions, a business solutions provider in Calgary, Canada, frequently supports clients that are ready to migrate to Office 365.
“For many businesses, it’s mission-critical that their staff can always reach company and external contacts immediately,”
“For example, one funeral home operator has 100 employees who must often contact a range of product and service suppliers in different cities, such as florists and clergy.”
Jerebic explained that without CiraSync, his client would not have migrated to Office 365.
“CiraSync paved the way, by ensuring that all the business’s most up-to-date contact data is available in Outlook and in the smartphone of every authorized employee.”
Kismet Solutions investigated other options for its client, but chose CiraSync for its ease of use and low maintenance.
“CiraSync is new technology, with a rich interface, very quick and easy to maintain,”
“The setup was almost immediate, it works perfectly, and it saved our customer money. It’s exactly what you want with Office 365.”
