MID MARKET ERP DEVELOPMENT

Have you ever wondered how to integrate Constant Contact seamlessly with your CRM application such as Sage CRM or your website? CodePartners can help. We have developed quite a few solutions for our clients to be able to synchronize their contact list from Sage CRM or their proprietary software with the contact list on Constant Contact. The synchronization happens on demand or at a scheduled time asynchronously.
We recently worked on integration between Constant Contact with a proprietary loyalty marketing web application . It was pretty easy and here’s how we did it:
1. Set up a developer account with Constant Contact and get an API Key.
2. Encrypt the API key and client ID and keep it safe in the back-end database for the website.
3. Add a Sync with Constant Contact button on the customer information page.
4. Once the button is clicked, it makes the Constant Contact API calls using I/O Docs. The calls are asynchronous and running in the background. The user is notified by an email once the synchronization job is complete. The job only imports new contacts and updates contacts that have new information.
