@Goodman... I disagree with you. I'm a small biz owner (just myself) as well. I tried Contactizer several times and was almost ready to buy it when 10.5.2 came out. Then it quit working with some weird error that their devs couldn't even figure out. Their response was finally to reformat the drive and see if that works. There were several more cases of the same error in the forums. Reformat my drive to try software? Don't get me wrong. Contactizer is a good product that competes well. That's when I tried Daylite and after about 30 days of using it, I purchased it and haven't looked back. It does exactly what I want it to do and more. I even use the custom form feature to add to the product to track my company software purchases and license numbers which were haphazardly stored in email flagged by Mailtags. Now I keep what I can stored in Daylite so when backing up, it's in one DB. A downside to Contactizer is that it will not sync custom recurring calendar events which in hindsight, I'm glad I purchased Daylite instead because that is a REAL plus. Another great feature of Daylite is their plugin architecture. They have plugins for Billings and another accounting system along with other misc. programs. While Contactizer is a solid product, Daylite has been more flexible for my needs. Evaluate both products (you need at least 30 days with both products to understand how they flow) then decide. If iCal sync for custom recurring events and syncing with other apps is reuqired, then Daylite may be what you need.

I was using Daylite since lot's of years ago (v2). So far, I was happy with the app but in latest times, the company policies stinks. First, they force us, longterm customers, to move to the cloud, even if you don't need/ask for it. To do so, they said that new OS will not be supported... If this was the case, it is difficult to argue against as it is a business decision. What is a nasty move and talks really bad about them is creating an specific version for "legacy", with a cuestionable red ribbon, remove the regular versions from their website and worst still lye to users. Version 6.5.11 works perfectly on Mojave but legacy even refuse to install. But version 6.5.11 will not be downloaded from their website. Daylite, you cheat us! This nasty approach (bad praxis) is exactly the same on the OS part. The latest upgrade broke the sync... Again, bad praxis. Honestly, if you look fro a CRM on mac, don't trust these people as their actions talk about them. Probably it will be better to look for other solutions as, if I need to go cloud, why not to go to real cloud solutions like Hubspot? I've been a loyal user of Daylite and always told great about the product. But the way they are working now is absolutely a red flag to ask yourself what will be next? No software will last forever but approach like Marketcircle ones, stinks.

The worst customer service I have ever seen. They don't respond, they don't answer their phone, they don't seem to understand that they are a database company and not responding for days when a customer is down endangers their customer's business. I am simply stunned by how they hide when their is an issue. It's clear by now that they either down't care of don't know what to do but can't give us the courtesy of letting us know.

Pros: great integration with Mail app, allows user to quickly file away emails and attachments, and keep a clean inbox - no small feat for modern businesses. Powerful and flexible database, where data can be cross-linked, classified and searched in a myriad if ways - store contact details, calendar events, project workflows, emails, documents, and link it all together. Flexible reporting functions. Suitable for usage in many different types of businesses. Cons: for a program that has been in the marketplace for so many years, it feels clumsy and unpolished: birth dates must be entered in American mm/dd/yy format, as it's unable to use the user's system formats. There are no map previews for addresses, nor any auto-linking that could send you to a Google map page - like the built-in Contacts app. No auto-linking of Twitter, Facebook or even Skype numbers for contacts. Documents are not a separate data type - they have to be stored as part of a Contact, or Project, not as an individually managed entity. But the main flaw is the extremely poor interface for report-building - a flaw that has persisted for many versions. Unless you are a programmer, you will not find creating custom reports easy at all - and the value of any business' data is in being able to analyse and report on it. Daylite has the potential to be GREAT software, but the developers really need to put some love into it, refine the data entry experience, and overhaul the report editor, making it possible for business users to actually get the reports they need on their data without having to hire an external programmer or consultant.

Version 4 is so much better than 3. The interface is easy on the eye and, although I keep going off to try CRM systems with easier syncing, I keep coming back to Daylite for one main reason: all my client emails are effortlessly stored with my clients' information. The only downsides: syncing via the server and poor social media integration (I use an add on to fetch LinkedIn and Twitter info, but it only shows me the person's page, it doesn't offer a feed, the way online CRMs such as BatchBook does).

Contactizer is fine when you look at the UI, but when you have to use it, it falls apart, at least for my use, and trust me, I've given it a whirl. I own a license. Anyone wanna buy it, let me know. The problem with Contactizer is that it is scattered. It's like a mashup with no thoughts behind. No concepts. On the other hand, Daylite is built on concepts, and business sense. For any Mac-based business with more than one person involved, I'd recommend Daylite. If you're only one person, Daylite may or may not be overkill, in which instance I'd still not recommend Contactizer, but instead Things + iCal + Address Book.

I am a single user with fairly humble needs and perhaps that's the reason I came to this viewpoint, but this product is really bloatware. It can do many sophisticated things, but many basics are a complete pain in the butt. The calendar display is atrocious and Daylite knows this, but has done nothing to fix it. Linking events and tasks to contacts is also cumbersome. For my needs, Contactizer has proven much, much better. If I were a small business, it would probably be different, but I would still urge anyone considering this product to look at alternatives. Also now that my experience was that the developers were not responsive to customers. You'll find a lot of this on their forums if you search around.

Today, MarketCircle, Inc. completed beta testing of Daylite 3.5 (of which 20 + betas were released)! Many users (myself included) volunteered to be beta testers for this important release, and as became evident to those of us testing, MarketCircle was serious about doing this right the first time (multi-user syncing). In my opinion, they succeeded! Daylite 3.5 is a sophisticated business tool for the Mac. It can be used by a single user or many users. There is definitely a learning curve... but with the online forum and email support (from the company), you'll usually get several suggestions on how best to solve your particular issue. With Daylite 3.5, if I am on the phone with a particular client, I can view ALL of the items I have attached to this client within one window (ie; tasks; notes; emails; referrals; meetings & appointments; proposals; opportunities; items I've delegated; desktop files; contracts; photos; etc)!!! If retaining copies of your client's emails and attachments (after being deleted from Apple's Mail) is important to you like it is to me, then you will want to have the DMI module. I have found this to be an invaluable add-on. If you have been sitting on the fence, watching this product mature, and have been waiting for the syncing aspects of Daylite to be fully realized, the time to try it out is now. Before starting though, take the time to perform a final sync of your mobile devices, backup your Apple Address Book and your iCal databases, and then follow Daylite's instructions. Once you are all setup, and have performed some cleanup within your database (eliminating duplicates, etc), I know you'll find that you be pleased with your choice! MarketCircle, keep up the great work! -Patrick

The concept behind Daylite is quite remarkable. I have nothing but praise for the interface and business sense that has gone into it. All the info is right there in front of you in one click. But the performance rules this application out for me. First of all it is slow, and doesn't play well (or not at all) with existing Apple core 10.4.7 technology like Mail and iCal, but requires these databases to be imported externally, or use additional pluggins (at your cost) to link up to your mail. It is interesting to see that in comparison OD4Contact info collection and presentation (out of nearly 500 contacts, and over 2000 emails) is instantaneous, whereas Daylite churns away at every turn. Moreover, we are at version 3 and the handling of UTF8 fonts has actually got worse than in ver 1 (I reported this during my ver 1 tryout also). While an initial run of a client-list db with non-Latin characters went on without issues, upon relaunch all UTF8 characters turned up as questionmarks, making the db unusable. There was also a conflict with the DMI pluggin which caused Mail to hang. I want to encourage Marketcircle to develop this application further, and make it a truly Mac app. Drop the DMI as an extra. Connect directly to Mail and iCal using the existing databases. If need be, drop Openbase. There is just so much potential in this app which is going unrealised.
