RE: Computer Address Book

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you want to keep one copy of the address book accessable to all
employees, I can only recommend a combination of Outlook clients with
Exchange server.  Exchange server is pricey (especially for a small
firm) but it will do what you want.  I don't have experience with
anything else, so I can't offer any alternatives.

Good luck

Subject: Computer Address Book

To my fellow computerized engineers:

We are looking to upgrade / change our address book program on the
computer (a
Windows 95 based PC system).  Currently, we use Office Accelerator,
which is
adequate, but not great, and I'm not sure they have a new version out.

I have looked at Microsoft Outlook, but am not convinced.  Several
people have
mentioned Act, but I have not tried it yet.  Before we spend all the
time and
energy converting to a new program, I was wondering if anyone had any
input /
war stories they would like to share.

Generally, we are looking for something that will be used primarily as
address book, but should be able to work well with our word processor

Thanks in advance for your input.
