We need an Office Plugin for Outlook 2007, to sync information from Sugar CRM. The information syncronized must be two way, new information coming from Sugar CRM must be loaded in Outlook, and new information coming from Outlook must go to Sugar CRM.
Sugar CRM is an open source CRM software in PHP/MySQL, so if you have skills with those and PHP Web Services (NuSOAP) it might be a little bit easier for you to work, but as all the information is accessible using Web Services, you don't need to have any of these.
We are able to help you set up a demo CRM system for your development environment, and assist you with technical questions about the system, as we have technical expertise on Sugar CRM.
We also might be able to provide you with some source code of a working plugin for Outlook 2003, but as stated above, the final project must be working in Outlook 2007.
Here is a list of the requirements for the plugin:
- Must be programmed in C# using .NET Framework 2.0 or higher
- Must work with Outlook 2007. I know for a fact that the plugin model changed from Outlook 2003 to 2007, so be sure about this.
- The information sent/received from Sugar CRM must be accessed using webservices. I can provide you with information about the Sugar CRM API, or you can find it easily online. Sugar CRM assigns a GUID to each record, and information about new and modified records are easily accessible through the API to make sync easier.
- The following information must be synced: Appointments, Contacts, Email.
Please contact me if you are interested in the project, or if you need any clarification about the specification.
