Better still, Outlook Address Book for Android does not need Internet Access to retrieve colleagues contact information from your company server. You will not need passwords or other complicated server information which are required for all other Apps on the market place. You will not be affected by data coverage when you are abroad, or when your company server is down.
Instead, Outlook Address Book for Android uses Microsoft Outlook's << Offline Address Book (OAB) >> that is stored on your organisation's desktop PC right now ! Syncing just one file to your android device will, with the help of this app, give you access to all of your organisation's contacts in a simple and user friendly android interface. Also, to protect your organisation's data, this app will take measures to secure the Offline Address Book in case your device is lost or stolen.
NOTE : This is not a standalone address book. It is only designed to work with Microsoft Outlook with Exchange Server
This app is fully functional with no limitations and is completely free.
If you find this App useful, ask your IT administrator to contact developer to discuss a custom App

To improve the quality of the App, please contact the developer if you have any problems using your organisation's Offline Address Book with this App.
