Daylite Touch Puts Your Business in Your PocketMacworld 2009 Best of Show Award-Winner for iPhone and iPod Touch Available Now From Apple's App Store (March 31, 2009)
TORONTO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/31/09 -- You're on the road with your iPhone and concerned about a large project or month-end sales objective, but checking in by email with everyone is proving too slow. It doesn't provide the big picture, much less allow you to dive into the real process. That scenario dramatically changes with the launch of Daylite Touch, Marketcircle Inc.'s award-winning iPhone / iPod touch business productivity application available today from Apple Inc.'s App Store.
Available as a free trial on Apple's App Store, Daylite Touch puts your business in your pocket, delivering Daylite's powerful business productivity features to Mac-based small businesses. Daylite Touch relies on Daylite 3.9, and Daylite Server, also released today, which enables licensing and synchronization for Daylite Touch, sold for $49.99/device/year.
"Already the US Census Bureau reports that 90% of all companies are small businesses, but with new rounds of big company layoffs, there will be even more small businesses and many of those will be Mac based," says Alykhan Jetha, CEO of Marketcircle. "These people deserve every competitive advantage to succeed and Daylite Touch together with Daylite 3.9 dramatically increases business productivity for Mac and iPhone equipped small businesses."
Instead of passively observing your business via remote email, Daylite Touch puts you right in the middle of the action with the ability to assess a project's status or an open sales opportunity, then dive in and direct the work so everyone delivers on time and stays on track. Starting with a handy home screen that provides a snapshot of your business life today and tomorrow with the most advanced multi-user calendar on the iPhone, Daylite Touch does everything Daylite-driven managers expect to do on the road.
You can create multi-user meetings, send out notifications, and create appointments using multi-touch gestures on the calendar. Rotating the iPhone sideways offers you a view of appointments for the coming week. And a dedicated tasks screen gives you the ability to bulk edit tasks, create subtasks, and link tasks to projects, opportunities, and contacts. You can also delegate tasks to other users and track the status of tasks after you've delegated them.
An objectives screen displays both projects and opportunities. You can sort projects by due date or priority, and sort sales or other opportunities by close date, value, or probability. When you view a project or opportunity, you can see linked contacts, tasks, notes, and relevant emails. The contacts screen shows you the people and companies you do business with and lets you see the relationships they have with each other.
Daylite Touch periodically syncs back to your office using EDGE, 3G, or WiFi.
Daylite 3.9 and Daylite Server, are free upgrades for existing Daylite customers. The new Daylite Server features PostgreSQL, a more robust and scalable database engine, replacing OpenBase. Daylite Server includes the TouchSync system with remote wipe capabilities, a completely revamped offline sync system, and supports centralized licensing. Daylite 3.9 and Daylite Server are required for Daylite Touch.
