For the past several months, we’ve been working closely with a company by the name of PieSync. PieSync offers a seamless two-synchronization platform that will enable synchronization between BigContacts and dozens of other popular web applications. You will always have the most current data at your fingertips – no matter what program you are working in.
Today, we are pleased to announce that we can now offer seamless two-way synchronization with MailChimp and Google Contacts. It is very easy to set up and create a synchronization with either of these programs. The entire process to connect one of these applications with your BigContacts can be completed in 2-3 minutes.
No need to export your contacts out of BigContacts to then turn around and import them into your MailChimp account every time you want to send out an email campaign. Now, every contact you add or update in BigContacts can automatically get added or updated in MailChimp, and vice versa. You simply tell PieSync which list in MailChimp you want BigContacts to sync with and then decide if you want to sync ALL contacts in your BigContacts account or only contacts with a certain Tag. PieSync keeps checking and updating your BigContacts and MailChimp accounts 24 hours a day and updates them automatically with the appropriate contact details.
With this two-way synchronization, you will always have the first name, last name, and email address of all your marketing contacts up-to-date!

Google Contacts Synchronization
Every contact you add or update in Google Contacts automatically gets added or updated in BigContacts, and vice versa. You simply tell PieSync which list in Google Contacts you want BigContacts to sync with and then decide if you want to sync ALL contacts or contacts with a certain tag in your BigContacts account. PieSync keeps checking and updating your BigContacts and Google Contacts accounts 24 hours a day and updates them automatically with the appropriate contact details.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This synchronization currently only works with individual contact records and does NOT sync business contact records. Your individual contact records will always have the first name, last name, title, emails, phone numbers, and addresses of your selected contacts updated and synchronized between your BigContacts and Google Contacts accounts.
BONUS: You can even synchronize contacts directly to your iPhone OR Android phone by checking the option shown below in the PieSync dashboard when setting the requirements for synchronization between BigContacts and Google Contacts.
