Goldmine business contact manager

GoldMine 6.0 Business Contact Manager is aimed at small- to medium-sized business and builds on the strengths of its predecessor. A couple of modules have been redesigned, including the Calendar and Scheduling tools, and you can now customise and expand GoldMine beyond its standard business-to-customer model, making it more relevant to a wider range of businesses. It now features XML data support and is compatible with Microsoft’s .NET initiative.

As before, GoldMine 6.0 can be used as a stand-alone package or, more usefully, as a workgroup tool.

Because of its emphasis on sales and marketing teams, GoldMine has particularly good support for collaborative, networked setups. It still offers predefined industry-specific templates for property, legal service, mortgage lending, insurance and financial service industries. There’s also a raft of third-party add-on products.

At first glance, Business Contact Manager is reminiscent of Outlook and shares a great chunk of that software’s basic functionality (see here for a screenshot). Consequently, there is a great deal of overlap with Microsoft’s PIM (personal information manager) — it can act as your e-mail client, address book, calendar and to-do list. As you might expect, it’s simple to hoover up all your Outlook data and pipe it straight into GoldMine 6.0 for immediate use.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
