What makes Pobuca Connect different from other contact management or CRM systems?
Most contact management systems focus mainly on offering customer relationship management features. However, Pobuca Connect is a contact management tool for teams, aiming at helping you share contact information with your co-workers on any device as easy as pie. You can get more customer relationship features with our Customers-ready Pobuca Premium that allows you to automatically upgrade Pobuca Connect to Microsoft Dynamics CRM in just a few clicks!
You can schedule a demo here.
We're looking for a contact management software that can integrate with Microsoft Exchange. Can Pobuca Connect do that?
Yes! These are the available options:
Download the Pobuca Connect app for mobile and choose to initially import contacts from Outlook.
Pobuca Connect integrates with Azure AD & O365 for user authentication. This means that you will be able to login to Pobuca Connect with the same credentials you are using for O365.
You can access Pobuca Connect contacts from Outlook using the Outlook add-in:
1. Search for any contact or organization stored in Pobuca Connect.
2. View contact details if you click on a name after search.
3. Store a new contact or organization. Pobuca Connect bot scans email bodies and finds new contacts, suggesting you to update your database with them.
4. Easily access Pobuca Connect contacts when trying to send an email from Outlook.
Sync Pobuca Connect contacts to a contacts folder in Outlook using the CardDAV protocol. Through CardDAV you can also sync Pobuca Connect contacts to the default contacts app in your smartphone. You need the Enterprise plan of Pobuca Connect for this feature.
Can I sync Google Contacts with Pobuca Connect?
You can initially import contacts from Google Contacts and also integrate Pobuca Connect with Google Contacts through Zapier. For more info about our integration with Zapier, click here.
Constant bidirectional synchronization of contacts between Pobuca Connect and Google Contacts is not supported yet.
Our point of view is that from now on you should use Pobuca Connect to store your business contacts and access them from any device! Pobuca Connect supports some business features (like contacts related to organizations or special permissions), which are not supported by Google Contacts and syncing information would be technically very difficult.
I am looking for a migration path from Business Contact Manager since Microsoft is not continuing it for Outlook 2016. Can Pobuca Connect help?
Pobuca Connect supports migration from BCM in the Enterprise plan. On top, you will have access to all your contacts from mobile, which was not supported by BCM. You will need the Enterprise Plan of Pobuca Connect and some one/off services if you want us to help you with migration of contacts.
Can I sign up with my Gmail or Hotmail account?
Pobuca Connect is a business contact management app that helps you and your co-workers share a common contact list. We, therefore, use your work email domain (email@example.com) to group users under the same organization and automatically start sharing contacts without compromising security across any other personal email accounts.

Since it is your work email, yes, you can.

If I use the Pro plan to create custom fields and then downgrade to free, do the custom fields remain?
No. When you downgrade your account, custom fields will be hidden. But if you renew your license, they will appear again.
