Shared Activity Streams

  1. Listen to Events in other application.

  2. Qontext can integrate other applications into its activity stream

  3. Then you can embed an activity stream into any other web application.

For example you could setup so that any time a salesperson enters a new lead into a CRM system, an update appears in the Qontext stream, which is embedded into a manager’s e-mail and BI dashboard systems. Qontext could be used by Autodesk’s user base of engineers, architects and other designers to collaborate on projects from directly within their tools. AutoCAD WS recently added an activity stream feature and Qontext will be merged into it.
