With iGoldMine™ you can access your sales and marketing information, and your customer service and support information to better manage your customer relationships.

     The power of GoldMine Corporate Edition lies in its ability to track customer relations across individuals, teams, and through the entire customer lifecycle. iGoldMine offers the functionality of GoldMine Corporate Edition with added security by eliminating the need to have locally stored information. A thin client strategy utilizes server-based computing to enable organizations to administer, deliver, and update applications from a central location to a wide variety of users. iGoldMine is a great solution for anyone who needs to access their customer information remotely.

 iGoldMine versus Synchronization

     We are sometimes asked the question, “How does iGoldMine factor into my synchronization strategy?”   In many cases, iGoldMine can replace synchronization.  If your users work from one location most days (i.e. a home office, or remote office), or if your users spend a short amount of time in GoldMine each day, then iGoldMine is a feasible replacement to synchronization.  Keep in mind that users will need to be connected to the iGoldMine server in order to work which in most cases is an internet and/or VPN connection to your workplace network.  If your users require access to GoldMine data while on an airplane or in their car, for example, iGoldMine will not be the complete solution.  When considering the administrative time involved in maintaining a synchronization server, laptops, and the process in general, the cost of deploying iGoldMine to users is an option to consider.
