SUNRISE Contacts 2020

Version 3.1.0

About this software

A powerful contacts relationship management (CRM) and general information organizer built and designed on FileMaker Pro 16 to 19 platform for business and personal use.

Using efficient and lean design (1), this self-contained solution for PC and Mac leverages the power and features of FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Server, and several powerful free plug-ins developed by SUNRISE to give you a powerhouse solution. And most importantly, you have the added benefit of a solution built from the ground up to be spyware-free and privacy-protected, as you would expect of a product of this type.

Not only that, but SUNRISE Contacts will work even in the event that your access to online services might suddenly go down. Not like other CRMs that requires you to go on the Cloud for storage and access to online features using RestAPI technology (e.g., Claris Connect) for everything to work, we do not think "crossing your fingers in the hope that those web services will always be available" is the way to go. It is better to start from the premise that you might be required to work without having access to the internet. In fact we emphasise the word "Personal" in "Personal Computing", especially with regards to the protection of your business confidential information and contacts, rather than "communal" or "share it with everyone" form of "Cloud Computing". Being personal with your data is what improves the security of your valuable data, especially in an age where hackers are online trying to access such information. And you are not at the whim of online service providers in forcing you to keep your data on their servers. Should they suddenly go bust, you have no way of getting your data back, let alone re-create the work done on the data. Nor do you have to sign away (and give away if you don't encrypt the data) your intellectual property rights to your information through complicated online contracts just to use services from Google, Apple and others. Of course, we are not saying having internet access has no benefit. The way it should work is that, with the internet, you should expect enhancements to your software and to achieve more, but certainly the internet should not stop you from doing your work.

Just to make sure you can work independently of external technologies, SUNRISE Contacts is also designed to grab data online and store it in the databases — the way databases should be used. It saves you money in the long-run, especially in constantly paying for subscriptions to access online data.

Among the enhancements you will receive with SUNRISE Contacts when on the internet include Google Maps / OpenStreetMap, Google Translate, PayPal/QuickBooks invoice creation, and Amazon OCR and voice-to-text recognition services (as well as access to Amazon's s3 file servers to store files and create links for people to download) to name a few.

For something with reduced long-term costs, at least you have a choice with SUNRISE Contacts!
