Getting Started – Riva Sync for Android Devices
Need to sync CRM contact and calendar information to the native address book and calendar applications on your Android device? Riva delivers server-side synchronization of CRM accounts, contacts, leads, appointments, meetings, phone calls, tasks, opportunities, cases, quotes, and custom CRM objects to the Android device. Take advantage of the Android device's native functionality and interactivity.
With Riva, there are no additional CRM plug-ins or mobile applications to install on your Android device for the synchronization to occur. Riva can sync between the leading CRM systems and leading email systems. To get started, configure your tablet to connect to your mailbox. In this example, we use an Exchange mailbox for the videos and screenshots.
Before you can follow the steps below, your business IT staff needs to set up a Riva Cloud subscription or to install and configure Riva On-Premise server.
Step 1: Set up your email account on your Android device by navigating to Settings > Add Account > Corporate. Enter your email account, server domain, user name, and password. Riva is compatible with SSL to keep your communications and CRM information secure on the device.
Step 2: Select what you want to sync — contacts, calendar, and/or email —, the frequency of the email, and days to sync.
Step 3: Note that, by default, Android devices create the folder structure that you would see in an email client:
Riva automatically syncs CRM contacts, accounts, and leads to your Android device's native address book. This allows you to take advantage of the Android device's native functionality and interactivity.
Riva syncs CRM appointments, meetings, phone calls, and tasks to the Android device's native calendar application. Create new appointments or modify existing calendar items on your Android device, and they will be synchronized to your CRM (or vice-versa).
Riva goes beyond CRM plug-ins for Android devices by allowing you to view and manage your CRM opportunities, cases, and quotes directly from the Android device in connected or disconnected modes. Select the Opportunities folder on your Android device to see a full list of your CRM opportunities. Select a specific opportunity to see an email summary of the opportunity.
Riva introduces powerful automation features that reduce manual data entry and give salespeople more strategic selling time. Use Riva AssignTo folders to archive emails against CRM accounts, contacts, opportunities, cases, or quotes. Move (copy) emails into the Create New Opportunity folder, and Riva will automatically create the account, contact(s), and opportunity in the CRM and sync the information back down to your Android device. Riva SmartConvert saves salespeople 5 to 7 minutes per converted email.
