Universal Sync tool for address books

On a dutch website (tweakers.net) I read a post about a company who are developing a universal sync tool called soocial.

The goal is simple. Synchronize different address books  of different email client or devices with each other. The goal is that simple that I’m wondering myself why nobody else came to this idea. Of course there are mobile servers who can sync your adress book of Groupwise or Exchange with your mobile devices, but is there other software that can sync your Groupwise address book with Gmail? real time?

Of course I looked at the website to see if the support Groupwise. Groupwise is not in the supported list there, but the sync the address books with syncml. And that is exactly the protocol that Groupwise Mobile uses. So it should work.

They have been working for over more than 2 years now, and have invested more than EUR 700.000 in the project. They hope to make some money out of it, by selling subscriptions. I cannot disagree with them!

Keep up the good work!
