<p>FileMaker, Inc. today announced the Bento 3 Contact and Customer Manager, a customised set of three new templates that make it easy for Mac users to organise all their contacts and customer details in one place – the perfect solution to a very popular New Year’s resolution. The Bento 3 Contact and Customer Manager includes a free 30-day trial of the popular Bento 3 personal database for Mac, plus three professionally designed, ready-to-use templates including customer and client contacts, sales receipts, and sales opportunities.</p>
<p>The Bento 3 Contact and Customer Manager also works with Bento for iPhone and iPod touch, so customers can organise their contacts and business activities on an iPhone or iPod touch and then synchronise the information to their Mac.</p>
<p>With the Bento 3 Contact and Customer Manager, users can store and organise extensive details such as completed and upcoming calls, as well as meetings and to-do items for each contact linked from iCal Events and iCal Tasks. They can also keep date-and-time stamped notes from meetings and conversations and attach documents, spreadsheets, images and e-mails to any contact record. The Bento 3 Contact and Customer Manager lets users track sales opportunities including product or service, units, amount and probability of close. All of this detailed information can be located quickly using iTunes-style searching.</p>
<p>“Customers and prospects can tell if you are organised – or not. By tracking notes from past meetings and conversations, upcoming to-do items, completed phone calls, and important e-mails you’ll be ready when your customers are.” said Steve McManus, Regional Manager, Asia Pacific. “With the Bento 3 Contact and Customer Manager, we’re providing an easy and affordable way for customers to get instant access to complete contact and customer details—fully integrated with iCal Tasks and iCal Events—so they have a central hub of information that lets them stay more organised and productive.”</p>
<p>The Contact and Customer Manager is designed to work with Bento 3, which has received rave reviews from the media including a recent 2009 Editor’s Pick award from Macworld. Bento 3 adds useful new features such as Grid View, integration with iPhoto, sharing data with others on a local network and securing data with 128-bit AES encryption.</p>
