Thanks urlwolf !
Interestingly, the very first application of IQ, was exactly that, CRM.
If you have a web site where customers can register, IQ can connect to the web-site server database and import new contacts / updates.
Yes, 2-way sync with Google services (Calendar, Contacts and Tasks) is coming soon (all I/O is fully working now). And then onto your mobile devices.
Just a quick note of warning - I don't use gmail as a main email but I do try to sync with it and I have recently had some major upset and annoyances with gmail contact sync. Maybe I can avoid annoyances for you and your testers:
- right now all the G+ circle contacts are sent by google over the gmail contact api. This is really bad for people sync'ing with phone or outlook. They are contact with no information and just 1 name, the G+ handle. No information anywhere (like a URL or tag) to identify where they came from and that they are G+ circle people. Google doesn't connect them with the contact if you also has the person as a contact, so you also end up with duplicates. Hopefully there is a way via the API to limit, but if you don't use G+ you might miss it.
- somehow with the recent gmail update, it lost the format awareness so that on sync what was earlier sent as firstname lastname was now sent as lastname, firstname - without some kind of indication for the sync tools. result? 3000 duplicates. Not sure what it means for people developing sync but might be useful to know
I tested and the above has fooled plaxo, funambol, and a couple other tools. It has fooled Gist too but at least Gist filed them as low value to i's easy to find them and clean up.
