Upvise 2.0 Release – End of Beta

Our beta period is now over. We launched Upvise just one year ago, and have been working hard to fix bugs and glitches and to enhance our applications by adding important features and improving the user experience. 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. Our goal is to build the best mobile application platform for small businesses and individuals, and we want to do so by following the guidelines that you provide in your feedback, as you know best what are the features you need. We want to make Upvise yours.

Upvise comes in two versions: the Personal and the Business editions. Upvise Personal includes the following mobile applications: Wikipedia, Contacts, Notebooks, Shopping Lists, RSS News, Quote of the Day, to bring you one-stop access to all your information on the go. 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 Business is a multi-user account which enables you to share company information and collaborate with your co-workers anywhere, on your mobile and through your web account. 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. And finally, as we want you to feel comfortable about using Upvise as your information repository, you can import and export your data from all applications in CSV format. So you can rest assured that the data is yours and will always be.

Version 2.0 of the Upvise mobile client is available for Java J2ME, Blackberry, Symbian, Windows Mobile, the Google Android G1 phone, with iPhone coming soon. The new features include mobile security settings, export contacts to the phone address book, and send an SMS text message to a contact. Download from http://www.upvise.com/download/

As we are now in release version, Upvise Business accounts will no longer be free. If you signed up for a business account during the beta period, you will have to purchase a license by November 30, 2008 to enjoy uninterrupted use of Upvise services. New business accounts come with a free 30-day trial. The license is US$49 only per user and per year, and can be renewed by an administrator in the Users section of your web account at https://www.upvise.com/useraccount/users.aspx

That’s all for now. We are excited about the developments and many challenges ahead, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

  1. Hello,

    i’ve been trying your solution quite a while…
    It’s a very nice, easy to use and solid solution. Especially the mobile device client (I use Blackberry).

    I can say it’s almost a complete solution but there is a minus. An email integration.
    That’s all is missing for upvise to be a dealbreak.

    For me it’s critical to have an email channel communication integrated into the collaborative solution i will use.

    Please let me know if you plan to introduce email integration within your solution.

    Thank you

  2. Hi
    I think it is great. I needed a note application bad for my G1, tried mobile me
    But their cloud only worked well with iphone. Because I switch phones often
    An email additional would make it tops for all my needs.

    Great Job!

  3. Import/export contacts from SIM and phone memory is an amazing feature. Currently, I am using Upvise 2.0 on my Samsung E200 mobile. All the features (like Wikipedia, Contacts, Notebooks, Shopping Lists, RSS News etc) are working correctly on my mobile but now I want a very important feature i.e Import / Export text SMS from SIM/ phone to my web account through GPRS connection just like Contacts.
    I have unlimited GPRS fixed plan. So, I am not worried about data usage cost. Please include this feature because till date, there is NOT any JAVA mobile application which can backup SMS through GPRS.

    Note: Samsung E200 does not support COPY/ Paste text from SMS. So, Import/ export SMS feature is the only solution for my mobile.

    And thanks a lot for making this freeware application!

    • Unfortunately the Java platform on Samsung E200 does not currently allow applications to access the SMS inbox programmatically, so we can’t do much in terms of importing your SMS text. But hopefully this will be available in future version of Java/J2me!

  4. I have multiple Leads and Opportunities in Upvise but I don’t see anything in Sales Forecast, how does it work??


    • The amounts in the Sales Forecast are a factor of the probability of the sale Opportunity. If the probability is equal to 0%, the forecasted amount of the sale is zero. If you set the probability to a non-zero %, the sale will appear in the forecast.
