Intelestream, Inc., the leader in open source CRM consulting and developer of the award-winning online small business CRM solution, intelecrm, today announced the availability of a new server-side Microsoft Exchange integration option, Riva Integration Server for Exchange. Riva will allow customers to automatically synchronize intelecrm opportunities, cases, quotes, accounts, contacts, leads, tasks and appointments without having to install any plug-ins or other software on their desktop, laptop or mobile devices. Riva Integration Server for Exchange was developed by Alberta-based Omni Technology Solutions as an alternative to client-side Outlook plug-ins. Riva gets installed once on a server and is compatible with all Microsoft Exchange clients.

"Intelestream was very pleased to discover this new, innovative CRM integration solution and be able to partner with Omni to provide Riva to our intelecrm customers," said Jason Green, CEO of Intelestream. "With Riva, intelecrm now delivers the most flexible integration and pricing options for small and medium-sized businesses. We will continue to offer the Outlook plug-in with its basic synchronization capabilities. But many of our customers are looking to move beyond the standard Outlook plug-in because it needs to be installed on each user's desktop or laptop. Riva Integration Server does not require any plug-ins. It gets installed once on a server and delivers better and more advanced integration and interoperability than users have ever had in the past. Organizations that already have the Outlook plug-in can upgrade to Riva Integration Server to take advantage of all of the server-side intelecrm integration advantages."

"Riva Integration Server delivers immediate time savings for small and medium-sized businesses," stated Aldo Zanoni, CEO of Omni. "With Riva, intelecrm users are able to automatically create CRM opportunities, cases and quotes by copying Outlook emails to the appropriate Riva SmartConvert folder. Riva SmartConvert folders save users 30-60 minutes per day. The associated CRM account, contacts and opportunity will be created automatically. Users can view, edit and manage their CRM opportunities, cases and quotes directly from within Outlook and quickly archive emails to the CRM without multiple clicks. Riva takes intelecrm integration to the next level and reduces management time - a key objective of any business that adopts a cloud-based collaboration or CRM strategy."

Riva Integration Server will provide intelecrm users with:

  • Valuable time savings by automating CRM management and content creation and allowing users to work in the application of their choice.
  • A single, unified view of CRM data in all Exchange clients – Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Entourage for Mac, Outlook Web Access, ActiveSync mobile device, BlackBerry Enterprise Server and IMAP clients.
  • Transparent, bi-directional synchronization of address book (accounts, contacts, leads) and calendar data (meetings, appointments, calls, tasks) – with no Outlook plug-ins required. The ability to manage CRM opportunities, cases and quotes directly from Outlook.
  • Flexible administration capabilities to set customized synchronization policies for specific groups of users. For example, companies can set a 1-minute synchronization interval for some users and a 60-minute synchronization policy for other users.
