Company Contacts for Outlook
Does your company use Microsoft Office Outlook extensively? If so, you know the build-in Exchange address book (Global Address List) leaves much to be desired, especially when trying to find users and contacts based on a partial match on first or last name and other user attributes. The add-in Company Contacts gives you access to a powerful shared address book as a replacement for the limited Microsoft Exchange 'Global Address List'. It also makes your personal contacts accessible from the same interface. With Company Contacts you don't have to know the exact name to find someone. Special characters in the name like umlauts and accents can also be skipped while still matching the correct person.
Why you need it?

Company Contacts also makes it possible to create additional address books by just saving Outlook contact items and/or vCard files (.vcf) to a sub folder (the name of each folder is the address book name) in a specified file share. Our tool processes these files and makes the contacts available to your users in a practical way as an extra address book in Company Contacts.
As a bonus feature Company Contacts lets you import the global address list to a sub folder of your personal Outlook contacts. One reason you may want to to this is that personal contacts are made available to mobile phones and tablets by ActiveSync. This way you get access to your company address list from the contact list on your iPhone or Android mobile device.
Company Contacts is easily accessible from the Outlook ribbon in multiple locations (the main ribbon, e-mail (inline) compose ribbon and the contacts ribbon).
