Enter Data Easily on your Handheld or Desktop
Save time spent on data entry by using your desktop mouse and keyboard, or clone similar records to use as templates. Plus, use data entry timesavers like checkboxes, multiple choice menus, and copy and paste.
Syncs Like you Expect it to
Efficient and fast "synchronizing" of data between a user's desktop and handheld device has long been recognized as one of the key strengths of the Palm OSÂ®. Like the Palm OS, dbNow Deluxe gives you the freedom to make updates on your desktop or handheld from home, work, or on the road, and feel confident that all of your data is complete and accurate.
Many handheld database products compare records in only one direction or not at all, forcing you to enter data twice or worse accidentally overwriting the most current copy. dbNow Deluxe's true record-by-record sync, searches for and combines edits made on both your handheld and desktop ensuring you have the most current data every time you sync.
Plus, dbNow Deluxe takes syncing one step further offering multi-user capabilities. Multiple people on multiple devices can make additions and updates to the same database. Imagine, keeping up-to-date with client information collected by on-the-road sales people. Or, envision one central household address list that you and your spouse can each modify during the workday on your own devices.
dbNow Deluxe's syncing capabilities allow you to:
