The SolutionAfter trying several applications from the Google Marketplace to share contacts, RJF International Corporation selected Shared Contacts for Gmail® thanks to its stability, efficiency and the fact that it is easy to use.

What did they say?
“Our benchmark of applications for sharing contacts naturally led us to choose Gmail Shared contacts” says Stacey McDonald (Manager of CRM Applications at RJC). “...Other applications we tried were either creating tons of duplicates and shared with all users in the domain which we did not want. We wanted to control who had access to the shared contacts”
Stacey adds that the customer support was also excellent; "...we always had someone to chat with during the whole process and price was very fair. E-consulting (the application editor), was very open to discuss the cost that would fit our large amount of users and we came to an agreement that provided us an upmarket application for a very good price”.
