    Do any CRM or ILM tools have the abiltiy to sync with Google Calendar or have an app that is supported by Android phones?

    We use AVV's WebControl for ILM and ProMax for CRM/Desking. I would love to be able to sync with Google Calendar (which automatically syncs with my DroidX). Or, another alternative would be a full fledged app that integrates with one of these tools. Sales people are not always at their desk, but most always have a cell on them. Android phones sync with Google Calendar fairly well, so this seems obvious. Does anyone know of a solution that gets ToDo or Calendar functions out to a phone???

    Thanks in advance for ideas/thoughts/feedback....BTW, not 'baiting' anyone that wants to pitch their product, but I WOULD like to learn what is available out there for this.

    I've been thinking about doing this for a long time. It is a great idea.

    I'm sure we can lodge this question on stackexchange and get some answers from NON-CAR people too, for broader insight.

    So you are wanting task reminders to show up on their phones? DealerSocket CRM mobile app has a notification system that will notify them on their mobile device of task or appointments. They can also send a calendar invite to a customer for their appointment at the dealership. Yes I work for DS but I do not sell CRM just answering the question posed.

    This post is from 2011... Doesn't pretty much all the CRM providers have the reminder alerts baked in now??
