Software can run from USB drive, iDisk, DropBox
Arten Science has launched new contact-management software, ContaX. The new software allows storage and viewing of contacts, with communication and interaction available between contacts. It has a flexible database that can be stored anywhere, including hosted or synchronized services like an iDisk or DropBox. It can be used by individuals or expanded to small-business levels, and can communicate across OS platforms. The new software is compatible with R10Cipher for encrypt text and e-mail; it is also compatible with R10BatchMail for sending batches of e-mails.
Task management can be implemented using ooSoom, which also adds digital-vault capabilities. The application can run from a USB drive as well as a server. It offers fast searching, sorting and filter of contacts, with options to categorize contacts into subject-based groups, such as customers and suppliers.
The new software runs on Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, including Snow Leopard. It is also compatible with Windows XP/Vista and Windows 7. ContaX runs on a PowerPC G4 1GHz or better. It is being introduced for $65 for a single license and is available in large-quantity licenses and bundles.
