Why CiraHub? 

As Microsoft’s Outlook client doesn’t automatically sync contacts from multiple sources, most organizations will need a third-party bi-directional sync solution. CiraHub synchronizes both contacts and calendars, making it the ideal solution for syncing or merging information from various sources as well as between tenants. This cuts down on errors and saves a significant amount of employee time.
