Editors' review

E-mail is the business world's lifeblood. The downside of instantaneous, 24-7 contact is an impersonality and distance that doesn't foster relationships. EfficientSoftware's Address Book Free is a contact and customer information management utility that anyone can use to keep their address books and contact information up to date and in sync, but where it shines is in its business-oriented customer contact features. It will remind you when birthdays, anniversaries, and other important events approach so you're ready with the personal touch that can make all the difference in business and personal relationships. You can also prioritize contacts so that your best customers always get full attention.

Efficient Address Book's customizable interface features eight built-in themes that change the color and look of a busy but efficient and familiar Windows-style layout. There's a full complement of menu items, including a Help file. Searching, adding, and editing contacts, photos, and personal information are all quick and easy to master, befitting a program focused on efficiency. Organizing contacts by company, bulk imports and exports, and file back-up and restore functions all performed flawlessly. We especially like the extra security features, such as password protection and encrypted information storage.

This fully functional freeware omits a few features of the developer's Address Book Pro. It works in all versions of Windows from 98 to 7. It can help anyone keep their email contacts organized and up to date, but for small businesspeople, its customer management features make it especially attractive. As freeware, the price is right, too.

    "Pretty good and has all the basics"

    February 13, 2012   |   By Fredwb

    Version: Efficient Address Book Free 3.0 build 318

    Pros

    Has a complete address book along with notes for each address. If you just need one address book for friends and family, this would be PERFECT.

    Cons

    Like what was said before me, there are no grouping options (That I could see) So for a business with needs for multiple address books, Clients, Suppliers, personal etc. this will not be good for you.

    Summary

    I really like it. it is easy and complete EXCEPT you can only have 1 group

    "Good for Small Business or Home use"

    January 02, 2012   |   By kl4893

    Version: Efficient Address Book Free 3.0 build 317

    Pros

    Very simple easy layout

    Cons

    To really use the full program you have to pay which would probably be a turn off for a homeowner and small business

    Summary

    For a free program it delivers up to a point. It would have been great as a stripped down program but to pay for the extras... you might as well invest in something better

    "Not being able to group contacts is a major detractor."

    August 19, 2009   |   By ActKat

    Version: Efficient Address Book Free 1.38 build 56

    Pros

    It was basic if that's what you are looking for.

    Cons

    Grouping contacts is only available if you buy the pro version.

    Summary

    Bottom line, it is useless to me without being able to group my contacts. I think most people expect to be able to make groups.
