WASHINGTON, March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/—CiraSync, the cloud-based solution that makes everyone reachable by syncing a company’s Global Address List (GAL) to Microsoft Office 365 users and their smartphones in about a minute, has made its Personal Edition available at Microsoft AppSource. The Personal Edition and Enterprise Edition are also available at the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

CiraSync also pushes Public Folder contacts, calendars, and CRM contacts to Microsoft Outlook and smartphones.

“It’s easy and simple to share a contact list or group calendar across Outlook and Office 365. The next key step is getting these shared items to smartphones and keeping them up to date. Mobile workers frequently request this capability,” explains Vern Weitzman, CTO of Cira Apps Limited. “Despite what many people assume, smartphone address books are not automatically updated with the latest contacts from the company GAL. CiraSync makes it easy to centrally manage and automate contact synchronization, even on a large scale, so smartphone users always have accurate contact lists.”

CiraSync quickly solves contact problems for Microsoft Office 365 Commercial Customers.

With virtually no effort, and just minutes of IT staff time, an administrator can deploy CiraSync to hundreds of Office 365 users.

CiraSync is gaining popularity with managed service providers who deploy the application to give their clients an immediate, reliable solution that enhances Office 365 and mobile productivity. One such IT solution provider is TeamLogic IT, which delivers secure and flexible IT systems to thousands of businesses from more than 50 locations across North America.

“CiraSync is the first product robust enough to just work and sync Public Folder contacts to smartphones seamlessly,” says Brian Schultz, Systems Engineer at TeamLogic IT in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

Schultz deployed CiraSync for a TeamLogic IT client with 200 employees that provides catering and management of large-scale events. The client’s account managers must easily reach every delivery truck driver, field staff person, and supplier.

“Deployment of CiraSync was easy, and our customer’s employees now have complete contact information in their iPhones all the time,” Schultz notes. “I no longer have 10 people coming at me about contact problems. This really solved a significant issue for our customers.”

Ease of On-boarding and Access

  • Immediate proof of concept—It takes just a minute to try the Personal Edition of CiraSync at Microsoft AppSource or Azure Marketplace, and establish contact synchronization to the smartphone of a single user. A global administrator can then upgrade to CiraSync Enterprise Edition.
  • Enterprise single sign-on—Microsoft Azure Active Directory supports rich enterprise-class single sign-on with CiraSync out of the box. Users sign into CiraSync using their organizational accounts hosted in Active Directory.
  • A full, managed tenant solution, the Enterprise Edition of CiraSync allows Office 365 global administrators to configure contact sync for any number of cloud mailboxes.
  • No installation of software on servers, desktops, or smartphones is required by CiraSync.
