CompanionLink Ships USB Sync for Synchronization Between Palm Pre and PC

USB Sync Supports Microsoft® Outlook® and Palm® Desktop Synchronization for Palm webOS™ Contacts and Calendar

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - October 10, 2009) - CompanionLink® Software, a leader in synchronization solutions, has released a solution that enables synchronization of contacts, calendar, tasks and memos between a PC and Palm® webOS™ phones via the phone's MicroUSB cable. The solution uses a Palm webOS app on the phone called CL USB Sync™ that works with CompanionLink for webOS USB™ software on the PC. The software synchronizes with popular PC software like Palm Desktop, Microsoft Outlook, IBM® Lotus Notes, and Novell® GroupWise.

CompanionLink for webOS USB works with Palm® Synergy™ and offers two-way data synchronization so new records created on the Palm phone will be synchronized with the PC. The CL USB Sync app also adds task and memo functionality with the ability to categorize items and view memos as a list.

"Palm Pre owners who rely on Palm Desktop, Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes on their PCs want to securely sync their contacts, calendar, tasks and memos," said Wayland Bruns, CEO of CompanionLink Software. "Many people lack a Microsoft Exchange server and seek a level of data security that cannot be found by transmitting valuable customer data through the Internet. With CompanionLink for webOS USB, users can transmit data using a direct wired connection between their PC and their phone."

The CL USB Sync app is available without charge from the Palm App Catalog on Palm webOS phones. CompanionLink for webOS USB is available for a one-time license fee of $39.95. CompanionLink offers free email and telephone support. Those who have purchased a CompanionLink product in the past can switch to the USB sync product without charge.
