has updated DayLite, their contact and customer relationship manager (CRM) for Mac OS X, to version 1.2. The update adds such features as online/offline capability, global find, next contextual menu options, the ability to sort/filter different fields and bulk mail merge. This is also the first version of substantial differentiation between the Personal and Business Editions, according to Aliyah Mohamed, Marketcircle product manager.
For instance, the online/offline and bulk mail merge are available only in the Business Edition. This differentiation will continue as DayLite matures, Mohamed said. If DayLite is to be used for any business related activities, the Business Edition is highly recommended as all data is stored in a “robust” relational database, he added. It also offers the ability to take an entire copy of the DayLite database on your laptop, access, create and modify data as you please, and then sync back to the master database when you return. The Business Edition also now has the ability to send bulk merged letters.
Both the Personal and Business Editions now offer a text importer that can import all Notes that are tab delimited or comma separated. Your last database connection is now remembered, and you can choose to connect at launch.
The DayLite Personal Edition is currently being offered for US$95. Pricing for the Business Edition is $135 per seat, though discounts are available for group editions. See the Marketcircle Web site for details.
