Chapura's Call Log+ Syncs With Outlook

Chapura today released Call Log+ for the Palm Treo 650 smartphone, to help improve the accuracy of the customer’s contact management by more effectively using the information captured in the built-in call log and offering additional conversation-tracking tools. Call Log+ software lets Treo 650 owners take notes on their smartphone during or after a phone call and keep track of these conversations on their PC desktop by synchronizing the call log and associated notes with Outlook Journal entries, linking them to the corresponding Outlook Contacts.

Call Log+ for the Palm Treo 650Call Log+ for the Treo 650 facilitates the call history component of contact management, while other of Chapura’s award-winning software products offer synchronization of Outlook Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes.

Keeping track of when calls happened, with whom they took place, and what was discussed helps busy professionals keep up with important details that can result in more rewarding relationships with customers and associates. Call Log+ is intuitive and simple to use. Reliable synchronization between Call Log+ on the smartphone and Outlook Journal on the desktop happens behind the scenes and offers easy access to phone call and contact information at any time. The Call Log+ application on the Treo 650 reads and displays the built-in, carrier-specific call log database for incoming, outgoing and missed phone calls, including name, number, date, time, duration and roaming status. Mapping a phone Favorites button or hardware button to Call Log+ easily integrates the application into everyday use.

Tapping on a phone number in Call Log+ for the Treo 650 lets the customer create or edit a note about a current or past phone conversation and automatically attaches the note to that call. Synchronization of Call Log+ for the Treo 650 with the PC creates or updates an Outlook Journal entry for each call and links the entry to the corresponding Outlook Contact. The call then appears on that linked contact’s Activities list for easy tracking of past phone conversations.

“While the Palm Treo 650 smartphone is a valuable mobile communication tool, Call Log+ is the link between mobility and productivity when it comes to call log management,” said Keith Ellenberg, president of Chapura. “Chapura is delighted to tell Treo 650 owners that they can now include their call management as an accurate part of contact management. Anyone can take notes about calls on the Treo 650 but Call Log+ automatically associates conversation notes with the phone numbers in the call log and contacts in Outlook.”

Call Log+ is available for $29.95. A free, 21-day trial version is available for download.

Wow. Thirty bucks.

I guess Chapura is hoping your company will pick up the tab, but they're not going to get the general consumer at that price, I would think.

Now here's an opportunity for some competition in the $10-$15 price range. Toysoft? Sharkboy? You game?

With the current exception of taking notes our Natara Comet Treo Call Log (, which has been around for a couple of years, seems more in line of your price range. Plus, you don't need Outlook and it calculates fields when grouped, etc.

You know, I've used DayNotez and Bonsai for some years now but never noticed Comet! I think I'll take it for a test drive. Thanks!

Agree the price puts it out of reach for me. But the interface with Outlook Journal is pretty nice (since I surrendered to sync'ing with Outlook a couple years ago).

If the price drops to about $10 for what is basically a clever utility, I'd bite. $30 is 2-3 times what this thing should sell for in the real world.
