Overview of the sections & basic functions

Functions highlighted

You can access the single contact view bei tapping on a contact in the contact list view, single list and single group view and in the interaction view of a single occasion. You will see some basic information and the contact details of the person.

The single contact view unites all the information of one single contact. From here you can quickly browse through the different data section and even access automated lists. Each section contains it’s own unique features and you can search and create new entries with one tap.

Main features in comparison to other apps

Easily structure a lot of information

Standard address books and personal CRM solutions don’t offer the possibility to really structure the data you save with your contacts. This isn’t very important for the start but after a few months or maximum a couple of years you will end up with giant tag clouds, overloaded contact views and it will become hard or even impossible to find the information you need. ContactShip takes a different approach and structures your data in sections, categories and attributes right from the start. This gives you the structure you need even if you manage hundreds of information per contact.

Automated lists point out the most important and actual facts

ContactShip’s single contact view includes automated lists for marked and rated items. In two touches you have an instant overview of all the things a person likes or dislikes. You can sort them by their update dates and therefore have all actual entries on the top. Use this instant briefing before a call or meetup to catch up with all relevant information in seconds.
