Kwaga, which got its start with its WriteThat.name tool to transfer contact information from Gmail e-mails to your address book, has launched an equivalent tool for Outlook.
WriteThat.name for Outlook 2007 and 2010 is a plug-in, in beta testing for now, that harvests data from e-mail signatures so you don't have to laboriously copy and paste it yourself.
"A study of WriteThat.name users conducted by Kwaga clearly identified Outlook as the next necessary step for the evolution of this product," the company said in a statement yesterday. Paris-based Kwaga just raised $1.5 million in funding to fuel the expansion. It's also planning on integrating its service with major customer-relations management (CRM) products.
