Marketcircle Daylite 3.7
Marketcircle has released Daylite 3.7, bringing three new product extensions -- MoneyWorks, LightSpeed and FileMaker -- as well as a time-saving report distribution tool called Daylite Delivery to the productivity suite. Daylite performs a variety of business functions, including identifying and qualifying opportunities to the delivery of projects and tracking/managing business activities and outcomes. In addition, Daylite takes advantage of Apple's Sync Services to bring Daylite contacts, appointments, tasks, and reminders to iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Palm, Windows Mobile devices and many popular cellphones.
- The Daylite MoneyWorks Connector allows users to connect Daylite to the financial and inventory strengths of MoneyWorks, including the ability to push and pull vendor and supplier contacts. It is priced at $100/user.
- The Daylite LightSpeed Connector integrates the productivity application with the LightSpeed retail sales solution. Users can create quotes in LightSpeed and follow them to completion in Daylite. The Daylite LightSpeed Connector is priced at $130 per user.
- The Daylite FileMaker Connector can pull records such as contacts, tasks and appointments from FileMaker, allowing users to manage business objectives and activities in Daylite as well as send Daylite updates to FileMaker to complete business processes. Daylite FileMaker Connector is priced at $300/server (unlimited users).
- Daylite Delivery allows users to share and schedule reports and have them delivered via email as a PDF. It offers 50 built-in reports as well as the ability to custom design and schedule reports. Daylite Delivery is priced at $100/5 pack (unlimited users).
Daylite MoneyWorks Connector, Daylite LightSpeed Connector, Daylite FileMaker Connector and Daylite Delivery will be showcased at Marketcircle's Macworld Expo (booth #2538, South Hall). Marketcircle will also be showing Billings 2.5.5, a new Leopard-compatible version of its time-tracking and invoicing software.
"We've raised the bar again for Mac business software with connectors between Daylite and class-leading FileMaker, LightSpeed and MoneyWorks," says Alykhan Jetha, CEO of Marketcircle. "We've also released the amazingly convenient Daylite Delivery, which helps increase the speed of decision making and helps reduce communication gaps within a company."
Leopard-compatible Daylite 3.7 ($150) is a free upgrade for Daylite 3.x customers. Daylite 3.7 is included in the Daylite Productivity Suite that bundles Daylite with Marketcircle's Daylite Mail Integration Module (DMI 2.1.1, $50) for $190. A 30-day demo is available online.
