Google Contacts Library, v2.0

While they are happy with their CRM overall, their employees could be far more productive with just a few improvements to the user experience, filling in the gaps in application functionality. Most of the requests fall into two categories: user interface or data integration. Read the rest of this entry »

SugarCRM Integration Overview


I’ve taken some time to create another Bungee Connect reference application using the SugarCRM web services API. I have previously posted about NetSuite, Salesforce, and Oracle/Siebel CRM On Demand.

These small and simple applications perform the basic functionality of authentication, reading data, and writing data. The code is well commented and straightforward, providing an excellent foundation for one to base their own code on. Read the rest of this entry »

While at Web 2.0 Expo, Jesse Stay interviewed me and Corey Olsen about Bungee Connect. He just updated his blog with some video of the demo we gave him.

Tonight we will be hosting the Social Media Developers Garage. At the event tonight, Ted Haeger and I will be providing a Hello World introduction to using Bungee Connect with a few services like Facebook, Twitter and possibly even Google Contacts.
