Connector Tool for Google Calendar Top SugarForge.org Pick

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor


Open source CRM software provider SugarCRM offers companies of all sizes a cost effective, flexible alternative to proprietary applications. Their Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems help boost sales, marketing and service department performance as well as increase productivity and effectiveness.

The company’s community Web site, SugarForge.org., boasts over 115,000 registered members who participate in forums along with 17,000 registered developers that develop modules on SugarForge.org.
 
Each month, the company picks a project featured on the community to highlight as a winner. The winners are selected based on the quality of the project’s code, its overall usefulness as a SugarCRM (News - Alert) extension, and its activity.
 
This month, MyCRM GmBH, an open source and SaaS systems integrator, was chosen for the Project of the Month award for their Connector Tool for Google (News - Alert) Calendar.
 
The Connector Tool allows SugarCRM users to integrate business activities within Google Calendar. This means users can blend all of their business and personal activities within SugarCRM into one vide in Google Calendar – increasing their efficiency and helping to improve customer’s service levels.
 
“We are pleased to recognize MyCRM GmbH’s contribution to the SugarCRM community with the development of the Connector Tool for Google Calendar,” said Clint Oram, co-founder and vice president of product management.
 
“It is especially critical that developer’s like MyCRM GmbH work with open source tools to deliver low cost (and in this case free) solutions that increase productivity in these hard economic times.” 
 
Using the Connector Tool for Google Calendar scheduling activities with customers and others is much easier and using NuevaSync and Google Mobile, the Connector Tool can also push Google Calendar events to a user’s iPhone.
 
MyCRM GmbH also recently released another Connector that integrates SugarCRM with Dimdim’s Web conferencing platform to provide users with access to cost efficient enterprise Web conferencing and CRM.
