SmartCompany's Turbo 1.0

This .Net-supported smart client is subject to Microsoft vulnerabilities, but its pivot-table paradigm makes up for the time you spend patching.

Good
• Integrates with Outlook and Word for contact and task management
• Synchronizes with data entered through the Web interface
• Richer client experience in a familiar Outlook-type interface

Bad

• Interface is so like Outlook's, it may confuse users
• Navigation problems
• No offline or synchronization capabilities

**SmartCompany Turbo 1.0, $100 to $400 per seat. Available: June 15.

I tested the beta version of Turbo in our Green Bay, Wis., Real-World Labs®. I installed and enabled the required Word and Outlook with .Net programmability support, which gave me access to features such as merging contact data with documents and duplicating tasks/ appointments created in Turbo within Outlook.
