There are 2 ways to access SpeedFinder:

Then you only have to enter one part of telephone number to see all contacts associated.

Example of use case

Dolibarr is open in your Navigator and you receive a call from a customer or supplier:

   1. you see the number of the caller (if your phone allows)
   2. clicking on the menu SpeedFinder of your Dolibarr
   3. you enter 2 or 3 digits in the "Quick Search:: phone"
   4. list of names associated dynamically appears almost instantaneously (via AJAX)
   5. clicking on the name to go directly to the page of your partner

The entire operation lasted less than 5 seconds (the time to pick up the phone) ... you want say "hello" to caller (calling him by his name) ... and details for the actions and current proposal is already under your eyes!
