Your company—like most—probably stores critical contact information in a Global Address List (GAL). Although this data is often vital to the organization, most companies have no good way to sync the GAL to mobile phones. This can lead to missed business opportunities, wasted time, and critical business errors.
Syncing the Global Address List to smartphones isn’t fast or easy—at least it didn’t used to be.
The GAL and Smartphones
The Global Address List (GAL) is a shared, electronic address book which usually contains contact data on every person in a given organization. While a wonderfully useful tool, this database of contact information has a fundamental flaw. When Microsoft developed the GAL, it left a “Missing Sync.” There is no native method of automatically syncing the GAL to smartphones.

The Global Address List and Smartphones: Current Problems
As it stands, the GAL is available on a view-only basis on smartphones. There is a fundamental gap when it comes to syncing contact data from the GAL. Users can be more productive if they have the entire GAL on their smartphones—that’s where they use it.
