Dynamic Company creator addon?

Hi Guys,

 

We have heaps of contacts in our db where the company name has just been typed in (rather than selected from a table of existing Company records), so none of the contact records for the same company are linked.

 

I'm looking for an addon that will create dynamic company records from existing records in the db.

 

I found one that does the job from Act Platinum called COMPANY MAKER FOR ACT! It says it works with Act 2012 but it is not clear whether it works with Act Premium 2012. 

 

Does anyone have experience using this product with Act Premium, or perhaps know of tools which do the same thing?

 

Actually, while we're on the topic of addons, is there a single list anywhere of all the addons out there?

I know you would think that something like this would be part of the product, but I'm happy to pay a third party developer who has made an addon that is going to make my life easier Smiley Happy

For Company creation, I'd usually go with:

http://www.actaddons.com/products/2005/company-wizard-plus.asp?cc_AID=953896411_1097853525


Thanks. It's more expensive that the one I mentioned earlier, however it does more Smiley Happy

I'm a little puzzled how these things work. We have a master database and two remote users who sync periodically. So do we install the addon on the master db, or on the remote user's db who takes care of the admin?

I'm pretty sure it only needs to be installed on the Publisher ... and the changes roll out via sync
