We would like to develop a web app that interacts with one of our lead vendors. The app would stay logged into the lead vendor system and respond immediately when leads are posted. There are several paths this could go, and we need an experienced programmer to determine the right observation and response mechanism.
There are two ways we know of to identify when a lead comes in.
1. - Via Email: Leads are sent to our dedicated email address for these leads.
2. - Website Refresh: The lead vendor has a page that can be refreshed to determine if a new lead has posted (this is our current method)
Once a lead has been identified, we must 'like' the lead via the website. Ideally, this process would all happen with minimal pinging of the host site, as to not raise security concerns.
We have developed a similar app using Google Chrome, but have found the google restrictions combined with some recent changes at the lead vendor have made this app obsolete. We're looking to either update the existing app, or to create a new app that resolves our current issues.
