In early March, Mail2World launched OutlookSync, an essential business productivity tool that syncs Outlook contacts, calendar and notes with Webmail in real-time. We’ve been very excited about the OutlookSync launch here at Mail2World, we always knew that OutlookSync would help users be more productive in their work. We’ve been looking forward to feedback from our businesses, but we really had no idea of its full impact until we sat down with Miguel, one of our Latin American business clients. We got the chance to ask Miguel about how OutlookSync has benefited him with his business.
M2W: First of all Miguel, we really want to start with a big “thank you” for being one of the first businesses to request OutlookSync. Please tell us a little bit about you and how OutlookSync helps your business.
MG: Thank you guys! I work as an Account Manager for several businesses in Latin America. Primarily for several telecommunications companies. Most of my businesses do their day-to-day email communications from Outlook right at their desks. But several of our manager’s travel and need to use webmail while away from their offices or off hours and weekends. We require mobility. OutlookSync is the perfect tool for our offices on the go.
M2W: Tell us about
how OutlookSync helps with mobility. How easy is it to sync your contacts &
MG: Well, it’s a quick download from my Webmail account. Then I can adjust my settings in Outlook to synchronize automatically. It’s extremely easy. The download is extremely fast. And the install was complete within a few seconds. One click of the button after I inputted my account credentials and the calendar and contacts were synced within a few minutes. And I don’t have to remember to sync. My settings automatically sync my data or I can sync anytime at the push of a button. So we can pick up and go and all of our information is always available.
M2W: How quickly is data
reflected across platforms?
MG: The changes are seen almost instantaneously. Only the initial sync took a few minutes but I have a lot of contacts, events and businesses on my contacts list. I need all of that information with me always. The synchronization of this data is automatic or I can just refresh as I need to. It’s fairly fast considering I’m in different locations at any given time.
M2W: What’s your
favorite feature of OutlookSync?
MG: I think for me it would have to be the auto schedule sync. I like the fact that I can schedule a sync and not have to worry about doing anything else for my information to be current.
M2W: How can
OutlookSync help other business professionals, in your opinion?
MG: The sync feature can help anyone who is on the go and away from their primary desktop client. It’s necessary for travelers and people that check-in or work remotely.
M2W: What features would you recommend for
future iterations of OutlookSync?
MG: Well, I have to say that since I manage several business clients several of my lists are business contact groups. Can you guys add sync for contact groups as well?
M2W: Our Product Managers are going to wonder if you’re looking into the future Miguel! Our OutlookSync 2.0 is just around the corner and we’re adding contact groups to our sync features as well as a few other secret enhancements!
M2W: Thank you for your time Miguel. We really appreciate helping us communicate your experience to our other customers.
MG: Thank you, thank you. I’m already looking forward to your next version!
