Product Review: ShareO for Microsoft Outlook

Product Review: ShareO for Microsoft Outlook

I purchased 2 ShareO licenses for both myself and my VA and we used it for two months to manage my emails and have had many issues. Our emails weren’t syncing, attachments were getting corrupt, etc. I got fed up with these issues and have migrated to Google mail. I have a Virtual Assistant business and  99.98% of my communication is done via email, I needed something that would WORK!

In the first month, my assistant wasn’t getting new emails, we were also getting multiple folders issues where we could end up with 3 0r 4 of the same folder. In the end I realized as my inbox continued to get fuller, that we weren’t seeing the same things. Basically we were not seamlessly synced!

I just asked for a refund and didn’t get one. They would rather hang on to my $69.90 than do the right thing! So now there is the question of standing behind your policies and customer satisfaction. But who am I to say anything?, I don’t also run a business.

NOTE: When I spoke with Don, I said that I had had tech support for 2 months. I was trying to say that I had had support from their tech department. We dealt with tech support in a 2-3 weeks period.

I had a livechat with ShareO sales support team member, Marlow. Below is our full conversation:

agnes: I no longer had the luxury of time to continue with my daily email issues.

agnes: I’m waiting.

Marlow: Each time you have contacted our tech support, your issues were solved.
