We would like to thank you for your numerous suggestions and ever so relevant feedback during this past year. We have done our best to address a lot of your requests, and will be continuing to do so in the future.

Upvise makes it easy to sync information between your mobile phone and your web account. Upvise Personal is a free service and will remain free.

Upvise apps include the Business Contact Manager, Projects, Workspaces, Ideas, with Calendar and Tasks coming soon. Upvise ensures end-to-end security and encryption of your business data from your mobile to our servers, together with the use of https for your web account. Other security settings include the option to encrypt the data that is stored on your mobile, as well as lock the access on your device with a passcode. Business accounts also offer the possibility to backup the complete data in your account, with configurable automatic backups, and to restore previous backups.
